Works For Me Wednesday-Flu And Cold Season Preparation
Now is the time of year where I start to prepare for the flu and cold season by stocking up on "sick supplies". I try to keep regular cold and flu remedies on hand throughout the year, but as the seasons change, I am reminded to take note of what I have and what I need more of. Having these items on hand will hopefully eliminate those late night and early morning emergency trips to Wal-Mart as well as making it easier to get well if I am the one who gets sick.
Here is a list of what I keep on hand throughout the winter:
In the medicine cabinet:
-Cold and Allergy meds
-extra asthma meds for me
-Vaseline(for chapped lips and peeling noses)
In the kitchen:
-Ginger Ale or 7-up
-Chicken Noodle Soup (also ingredients to make my own)
-variety of juices-Orange, Grapefruit, Cranberry
-lots of water, of course!:-)
In the house:
-extra sheets and blankets(just in case!:-)
