How to keep track of Beauty Product and Medication Expiration Dates.
There are some things you just don’t think of and then it’s time to move or declutter a room and you think “there has to be an easier way”. I’m sharing a quick and easy way to keep track of Beauty Product and Medication expiration dates.
Cleaning out a medicine cabinet and make-up drawer can take minutes or hours. By taking a few minutes to circle or write down the expiration date when you buy the products can save you a lot of time later. Medications come with the expiration date printed on the label so I take a Sharpie and circle the date as soon as I purchase them. When I clean out the medicine cabinet it only takes a couple minutes to dispose of the expired medications. Make sure to research how you should dispose of your medications properly in your area.
Beauty products don’t typically have expiration dates on them so I write the expiration date on them with a Sharpie. This also makes it easier to toss old products when I’m decluttering and cleaning out the cabinets. It makes shopping easier too because I can quickly look at the dates to see if it’s time to purchase new products. I’ve made a printable with Beauty Products Expiration Dates available for you below.
Print this sheet out or pin it for later so you have access to it when you’re decluttering and cleaning out the bathroom.

The World Series is on, but girl you are the one hitting the home runs! Another fabulous post with great tips–neither of which I had seen before, and both that I can immediately put into practice. I love the helpful chart! Thank you!
Glad to see mascara on your 3 month list. A few years ago I started thinking of the first of every month as a reset day. I share this routine with my FB followers every first of the month. That makes it easy to remember to replace mascara every January, April, July and October, without having to somehow mark the date on the tube itself, which isn’t for me. Love your ideas & routines.
