This past week my six year old went back to school. We’ve already had our first allergies of the year so it’s only a short amount of time before we get really hit with the cold & flu. So while Kaila was at school this week my toddler and I took the time to go through our cabinets and see if anything was old or expired. To my surprise there were a lot of things that I could have sworn I just bought. Stuff we use every year that I thought I’d hang on to :just in case we need it again” and of course it went bad before we got the chance.
As I’ve come to find out it’s really important to clean out your cabinets and go through all medications. This week Brooklin and I cleaned out cabinets and went to Walgreen’s to restock some of our missing cold and flu supplies. We ended up buying more Saline spray which is great for toddlers because they can’t blow their little noses yet. I also use it and it works! We don’t take a whole lot of medication in this house but I always keep things like pain reliever and allergy medications around.
View our entire shop at Walgreens in my Intersect post.I did take something away from this entire thing, how important it is to be prepared and to go through your medications. Late night trips to Walgreen’s are never fun when you’ve got a sick kiddo in the house. Plus how safety wise it’s important to always stay vigilant. I especially liked the fact that Walgreen’s had other safety information for parents readily available and if I have any questions the helpful pharmacists can help me.Â Because of this information I went with the smaller dose of the Walgreen’s store brand pain chewable reliever. It was really helpful and I’m glad it was right on the isle with the medications. Have you taken the time to clean out your cabinets? Do you restock before cold season or as you need medications?
