Medicine Cabinet Monday

Ever had the urge to sneak a peek into a friend's medicine cabinet? 

If so, you're not the first.

In fact, according to a survey by the Quilted Northern toilet tissue, 39 percent of Americans can't resist doing a quick scan of a friend's medicine cabinet. Perhaps even more alarming, as reported by O Magazine: "Twenty-five percent have helped themselves into something inside."

Remember the old Seinfeld episode, The Conversion, when Jerry is caught sneaking a peek inside a friend's medicine cabinet?

Elaine: What were you doing opening her medicine cabinet?
I didn’t open it. It was open. I just nudged it a little.
You were snooping.
I was not snooping. I did not break the seal. There was no breaking and entering. I wouldn’t do that.
I would. I always open medicine cabinets.
Well I trust people not to do that.
Big mistake.

 In the interest of covering every inch of the American Home and perhaps a bit of amateur anthropology, I thought I would open my own medicine cabinet door and give you a good look inside...

Nothing special really, but those closed doors really do make you wonder. So tempting...just between you and me -do you peek?

Keep an eye out for more medicine cabinet reveals in upcoming posts.


  1. OK...love this idea!!! And I have the Trader Joe's vitamin E oil too!

  2. OK...sometimes I peek...but I feel guilty!!!

  3. Yes, love the E oil!! Who hasn't peeked after all...now using someone's toothbrush while they're not looking, THAT's another thing!
