I have always hated how the band aids would fall out of the paper boxes they come in and end up all over the closet. This is the perfect solution to that problem.

Great for Organization
My husband and I share our lives with parrots who inevitably nip our fingers. The bandage box makes it very easy to grab the size of bandage that you need without rifling though a multisize box trying to find the tiny bandages. It also lets me see what needs to be restocked. I love that there's a place for some antibiotic cream, too. There are generally a few tubes floating around the house, but I always know there's one in the box. The other side of the bandage box is one large compartment. Its not very deep, but you could put some flat gauze bandage packs or some individually wrapped alcohol swabs in there.

The last frontier
When you get to the point that you are organizing your bandages, you have reached the final frontier, You probably already own one of everything at the Container Store.
I ordered 2 of these and am basically pleased. This is the ultimate in being able to find what you need quickly when someone is cut and bleeding.
It is not too clear from the drawing, but there is a second tilt out compartment on the back for large size bandages and accessories like small scissors and so forth. I used one organizer for the knuckle and fingertip bandages side by side, and the other back compartment will be used for the large 2"x3" bandages.
I found only 2 negatives. First, the tilt out compartments are somewhat difficult to open, but it takes less time than locating and opening up every bandage box to find what you need. (I also put labels on the front to distinguish the Mickey Mouse ones from the Ninja Turtles. In a crisis, you don't need a child throwing fit on top of the injury because you grabbed the wrong character.)
The second thing is that the plastic seems brittle. One of them arrived broken, with one end of the flip top broken off. (Of course, Container Store is replacing it at no cost, and did not require that I go through the hassle of returning the broken one. Kudos there.)
I am not sure that it would survive being dropped on a tile bathroom floor. Still, I would probably buy a new one if that happened. Now that I have this, I am hooked.

The box has room for all sizes of bandaids with back compartment for gauze. Fits in medicine cabinet, too. I bought two extra for stocking stuffers because they were red and on sale.
