14 Pill Organizers That Can Help You Keep Track of Your Medications


If you live with chronic illness, you may find yourself needing to take so many pills, vitamins or supplements every day that it’s difficult to remember it all. Keeping track of which pills have to be taken at which times throughout the day can easily become overwhelming.

No matter what size or shape you need in a pill container, there are plenty of options available for you to choose from. To help you find a pill organizer that best suits your needs, we asked our Mighty community to share which pill boxes they use to keep their medications safely organized. Here are their recommendations.

Just so you know, we’ve selected these links to make shopping easier for you. We do not receive any funds from purchases you make.

1. Anabox 7 Day Pill Box

“I use the Anabox 7 Day pill organizer. Love it – each day is its own separate box and you get separators inside for times of the day. The morning is also bigger to accommodate more pills as traditionally more is taken in the morning. Plus having the individual day boxes in different colors mean after a while you associate that color with the day so it’s easier to make sure you have the right day even though the day is written on them. You want to leave the house but need your pills? Leave the other six at home and just take the day with you. Finished that day’s pills? Just slide it in the back and the next day is pushed forward. I even bought a second one to keep as a spare for whenever my current box gives up the ghost. Love it!” said Johnathan MacLeod.

Jaz Haddow added, “I’ve had so many but this is the best. Each one has a sliding lid so it’s secure but easy to open when my hands are sore. The writing is clear and the colors help when trying to find them in your bag. They are bumpy on the bottom which helps with dexterity. They come in a case so you don’t lose them. I love it because I can organize my pills once a week rather than each day. There’s also a slot on the bottom of the case so you can write down all your meds and what time you take them. I get brain fog a lot so this helps me not forget any meds.”

Bethany Payne said, “This is my all-time favorite! Five different sections, easy to open and generally just really nice looking! The removable daily panels are great for slipping in my bag for the day.”

2. Ordex 7-Day Pill Box Dispenser

This pill box comes with wide, stackable trays for each day of the week. Each tray is divided into four compartments to sort your pills by time of day.

“It takes many more pills then the usual pill organizers and fits neatly in your pocket or purse. It has a slide to open top making it a stronger option,” Kris Osborne told us.

3. PillPack

This pill organizer has seven slots for each day of the week, and each slot holds a pill box with four compartments to divide up your pills.

Elisabeth Wheeler told us, “I like that each day is divided into four times which I have multiple meds spaced throughout the day. It is also nice when traveling — I can take only the days I need and fits nicely in my bag. Plus it’s the only one that doesn’t pop open on me.”

5. MedCenter Monthly Pill Organizer

For those who like to plan ahead, the MedCenter holds a month of medication. Each day has a slot with a pill box that has four compartments to divide up your pills between morning, afternoon, evening and night. It also contains an alarm so you can set reminders for when you need to take your meds.

7. Thassio XXL Large Weekly 7 Day Pill Organizer

Kimberley Quirk wrote, “I love this weekly 4x/day organizer – each compartment holds about 10 to 12 large capsules and I fill it as I take about 40 pills a day (most are vitamins/supplements). It stacks and stores neatly in my cabinet and I take out each day’s mini box and can take with me on the go. If you have more than 10 capsule-size pills at a time you will need bigger one, or I tape down to ensure doesn’t open – it only does if I overstuff. Under 40 capsules and you’re golden with this baby. I’ve had it for at least three years. Has served me well.”

8. 7 Day Pill Wallet

On the outside, this may look like a standard wallet, but the inside contains a 7-day, four times/day pill box as well as a small folder to store medical information, prescriptions, etc.

“I love it, keeps all of my medication and information/scripts together. Each day is removable if I need to use a smaller purse on that day, otherwise it just lives in my handbag. I pack it myself every Sunday, and as silly as it sounds, it feels age appropriate for me if I need to have my medication in a public place. My doctor was so impressed, she now gives her patients the link to it for them to look into,” Joanne Burgoyne said.

Buy the pill case above for $8 from Amazon.

9. PillDrill

“I love my Pill Drill,” said Evie Evans. “It’s like a FitBit for medication.”
