    I use a plastic lazy susan that I scored at the thrift store, they works so great, I've since brought a couple more for other areas. I also order my vitamins at great discount from and love their quick open flip up lid. I save the lids and put them on other things I use daily.

    If you have a lot of meds, you can use a spice cube that sits in your cabinet. You can use the extra spaces for spices. I have one of these and it is fantastic. Find it at Bed, Bath, and Beyond.

    I have a drawer in my kitchen dedicated to prescription meds. I have to take them with food or water or as I'm preparing for bed or first thing in the morning and what better place than where I go first and kitchen. I used to keep them in the cupboard in a plastic see-thru shoe box but there just got to be too many. And if you get a 90 day supply the bottles are big (and it's often cheaper to buy them that way). So I finally just took one of my drawers and separated with little boxes (that come with cheese or cut a cereal box or cracker box and I also use a medicine box to sort my daily meds. Those are available at WalMart or any of the major pharmacies. I hope this helps.

    I like the little wood spice racks from Ikea that are $4.99 each. I painted mine in colors to match decor of rooms I use them in. It is quick, easy project (when you want color instead of wood tone). They can even be used on inside of cabinet cupboards.

    I got a small two drawer storage bin from Walmart for my hubby to keep small things in when he was driving truck. Now that he is retired, we use it to keep his meds in laying down. The second drawer is for new bottles that will be opened soon. He also keeps things like aspirin, muscle rub, etc. in the second drawer. He has two different daily med containers that have evening and morning. One is for the two times a day and the other is for his morning med that he has to take before his other morning ones, and for the one he takes in the afternoon only. Since the two drawer system is self contained, you could put it in a cupboard and still be able to put things on top of it. He keeps lotions and bigger vitamin bottles on it, it can handle a bit of weight, but not something like veggie or fruit cans.
