Keep your medication and vitamins secure while traveling

With so many medications and supplements on the market, the pill cabinet can easily become cluttered and sorting through medications turns into a hassle. Pill organizers simplify this process, save time and serve as a friendly reminder when to take medicines, vitamins, and supplements. With so many options out there, here are the best options on Amazon to help find a pill organizer that’s right for you.

    For a pill organizer that makes it easy to identify items, the Rainbow Weekly Pill Organizer by Inspiration Industry NY is an easy choice. Every compartment is brightly color coded with three clear (but tinted) compartments for morning, afternoon and evening medication. Each “day” can easily slip out of the clear plastic holder and snaps closed with ease. The slots can hold about seven large capsules in each and the entire organizer measures 7 x 5 x 1 inches. Each pod can be moved within the tray or tucked into a purse or backpack. Amazon buyers appreciated that it sealed shut, preventing spills and making it easy to travel with.

    For a simple pill organizer that’s well constructed and available at a fair price, the Push Button Weekly Pill Organizer by SURVIVE! Vitamins is a top seller. The white container has 14 compartments (both a morning and an evening compartment for each day of the week) with easy-to-open push buttons and large lettering. The lid of the container is clear so you can easily see items and the compartments can hold about seven large capsules or around 20 smaller pills. Although it is ideal for home use, the container is sturdy enough to bring on an airplane, however, be aware that the push buttons don’t take much effort to press. Consider placing it in an extra container before travel.

    For a unique design that’s a step up from the traditional pill container, the Sagely Smart Weekly Pill Organizer can help keep you on schedule. The large kit consists of seven individual day containers that rest on a magnetic tray, making them easy for the individual pods to pack into purses, backpacks or other luggage. The tops open easily, but remain tightly closed to prevent pills from spilling. Each day container is labeled and has an AM/PM compartment with green and blue tops to easily identify them. To fill, the pills are pushed through a slot in the closed lids – a much faster way of loading (however air can get into the container). There is also an app reminder to let you know when it’s time to take your medicine.

    If you’re constantly on the go, having the Winomo Waterproof Aluminum Keychain Container on hand is an easy way to avoid forgetting about your medication. The package comes with six (not seven) small metallic tubes that can be attached to backpacks, key chains or belt loops. The aluminum containers are the perfect back up plan, come in different colors and twist shut to make them water and moisture proof. They measure 2.8 inches long (with the key chain loop), and .8 inches wide, which is large enough for many small pills (such as Advil or allergy medicine), and a few larger capsules and supplements. You can also use them for dollar bills, jewelry or other small items.

    Those that have a lot of medication or have larger-sized pills should consider the Extra Large seven-day organizer from Stuff Seniors Need. The rainbow color-coded pill dispenser comes in an attractive binder with Velcro closures. Contact information can be written on the built-in card in case the medication is lost. The case is broken down into seven removable “day compartments” each with four slots (morning, afternoon, evening, bedtime). Each “day” measures 5.25 inches long by 1.25 wide and can hold nine fish oil pills in each slot. The pill boxes themselves can be a little difficult to open at first, but it allows the containers to travel easily without spilling.

    For those with smaller medication who want to try a different layout, the XINHome Pill Organizer has a unique vertical design. The seven, multi-colored dispensers have four compartments for morning, noon, evening and bedtime with lids that easily slide off when needed (but don’t open too easily when not in use). Each labeled “day” is removable and can be stored vertically in the stylish black leather pouch with a snap closure. It is important to note that the individual compartments are only .5 inches deep, meaning this is not ideal for larger pills (such as supplements). When inside the case, the organizer measures 4.9 x 1.8 x 4.4 inches.

    For a fashionable pill container to bring with you on the go, the Fashion Smart Organizer Pill and Vitamin Clutch is a great option. The compact clutch measures 4.5 x 3.5 x 1.5 inches and keeps a week’s worth of medication secure and discreet. The clutch has pink trim with cream fabric and bohemian design patterns and features a zippered front pocket to tuck cash, credit cards or other small items in. The pill case is clear plastic with eight slots – one for each day of the week and one extra (great for ointment, bandages or other medical needs). Each slot is able to hold a generous amount of small pills, as well as larger capsules.

    If you’re constantly on the road for business or just like to travel, you’ll need a pill organizer that won’t take up space in your bag – and won’t spill its important contents. The Lewis N Clark Organizer looks more like a wallet than a container and it tucks easily into luggage. Clear pill pouches are water and air tight and slide into slots (like credit cards do). They are numbered with red and blue lettering one through eight, but there are two sets for a total of 16 zippered pill pouches. The black pill wallet closes using Velcro and also includes a medical card for necessary information.
