Prepping for cold and flu season is so important. Not only to ensure that your family stays healthy all season long but also so that no one is running out into the cold for relief. Keep stocked all cold and flu season with some of these tips and great products.
Prepping For Cold and Flu Tips
One of our favorite places to shop when stocking our health cabinet is Fred Meyer. I personally believe Fred Meyer has some of the best prices and quality items. I also love that their cold and flu aisles are so easy to navigate so that I can easily find the products that I need.
It Starts At Home
Keeping my kids healthy during cold and flu season starts at home. This is my biggest tip of all. I use Clorox® Disinfecting Wipes to wipe away 99.9% of the most common allergens.*.
I like to ensure that I am wiping down most touched areas of the home such as doorknobs, sink faucets, and light switches.
Bathroom counters are always a big area I focus on too. My kids are always bringing in messes to wash away and mercy knows what is left on those counters.
Keep Things Accessible
Keeping the health cabinet well stocked also means ensuring it is easily accessible. One of my favorite things to use to organize our cabinet is a dessert stand. Yes, I said dessert stand.
I can easily see everything and know when I need to take inventory of any items we might be out of or may have expired. I like to check medications at least once a month to ensure nothing has expired. I also like to keep our children’s medicines accessible up top and in front.
This way, I can easily grab the Children’s Robitussin® Honey Cough & Chest Congestion DM. One of our new favorite cold and cough remedies. It soothes on contact and provides cough relief for hours.
Plus, it is a true source of certified honey. I feel good giving it to my kids and knowing there are no artificial colors too. It’s for children ages 4 and up. Remember, Theraflu Power Pods Daytime Severe Cold and Children’s Robitussin® Honey Cough & Chest Congestion DM should not be used at the same time.
Keep Things Together
I also recommend keeping cold remedies with one another. No one wants to dig through a health cabinet trying to figure out where something is. Keep things together like Abreva® Pump Cold Sore and Fever Blister Treatment and Breathe® Right Extra Clear Nasal Strips.
Abreva® Pump Cold Sore and Fever Blister Treatment are awesome because it comes in an easy to apply tube. Having a pump at the end makes it so much easier to apply. Whenever someone feels a tingle on their lip, I grab Abreva for the best results at this first sign of a cold sore.
Cold and flu season also brings congestion and I am no stranger to it. Having deviated septum problems for most of my life, Breathe Right has been my go-to for a drug-free option to help me sleep better at night.
I used to use the tan strips but I have noticed they tend to tug a little harder when trying to remove them. With the Breathe® Right Extra Clear Nasal Strips, the materials used are slightly different and are easier to remove.
Keep Relief On Hand
One last thing that is so important to me when prepping for cold and flu season is having symptom relief on hand. There is nothing like having something hot to drink to sooth in the evening. Did you know this also just got easier with Theraflu Power Pods Nighttime Severe Cold?
You heard me right. Theraflu Power Pods Nighttime Severe Cold are just what you are thinking they are. You simply use them in your single-serve coffee maker (works with most).
Getting temporary relief due to having a cold has never been easier with Theraflu Power Pods Nighttime Severe Cold. They fit right into a great evening routine of sipping something warm and curling up when you are not feeling well.
Prepping for cold and flu season is easy when you keep things organized and purchase products like the ones I mentioned. Having things on hand that you can trust and know work will keep you from running out into the cold over and over to try something new.
Plus, keeping everything organized means you know exactly what you have on hand and you can make note of anything you might need. No need to purchase things you don’t need. Keep an eye on coupons for added savings too.
