Putting scripts back in their box

Dr Simon Pilbrow from Rosebud, Victoria, asks patients to buy a small filing box, which usually comes with dividers labelled alphabetically. Discard all but five dividers and rename these 1–5.

The patient places scripts according to how many repeats are left, moving them forward until they reach the front (one repeat left), when it is time for a GP visit.
