How do you feel about the cooler weather now that November has arrived? Fall into winter is my favorite time of the year? This morning I was admiring the gorgeous colors of the leaves. I am awed by nature! The only thing I am not crazy about when this season rolls around is the germ season is upon us. Wait!! Did you hear that? Are your kids are starting to get the sniffles?! What is a mom to do?
It is my job to keep my family as protected from seasonal illnesses. The first thing I do is take stock of what I have on hand. I check expiration dates and amounts remaining from last season. When I looked at my medicine cabinet, I realized two things. First, it was a mess and needed some TLC. Second, was that I am lacking on those products that keep my family feeling well. And if they get sick, I want to make sure I have the right OTC medications to get them on the mend ASAP. I need to keep my medicine cabinet #HappilyStocked!
For me, I stock up on all of my favorite products to kick those germs in the butt. I head to Kroger and fill my basket up! I love shopping with them! If I have a question, the pharmacy staff is there to help. The products are easy to find and affordable. The items we use most in our home are the *Breathe Right Strips in Extra Tan, **Dial Complete Fresh Pear Anti-Bacterial Foaming Hand Wash, ***Halls Honey Lemon Flavor Menthol Drops in the 30 ct. Bag, ****Kleenex® Anti-Viral, *****Theraflu ExpressMax Severe Cold & Flu Caplets and ******TYLENOL® Cold + Flu Severe Caplets.
I have peace of mine when I have these brands in my bathroom medicine cabinet. I am prepared when my family gets those seasonal sniffles that might arise. Now that Caitlin is in college, she doesn’t have as as many sick days as she did in high school. And goodness knows I cannot get sick, right?! If mom is sick, the house stops running smoothly. My kids and husband would be lost! Let me tell you about my favorite products for our wellness needs from Kroger. And of course, before purchasing any OTC products, check with your doctor. Be sure to take advantage of great savings during the month of November on these great products at Kroger!
When I was in nursing school, we learned early on about hand hygiene. This is the first course of action to fight those pesky germs. In my house, we say, “Wash you hands and wash them often!” I love the Dial Complete Fresh Pear Anti-Bacterial Foaming Hand Wash. Dial is one of our favorite soap brands! I trust them because their soaps kills 99.9% germs. Our hands are clean, hydrated and soft. The antibacterial gives us “Healthier Skin. Healthier You.®”
Next to hand washing, a good night’s sleep is a cornerstone of wellness. If you don’t get enough sleep, you are functioning below your optimal level. That is when those sneaky germs can get into your body and may you feel like crud. If my husband is stuffed up, he snores. Like a freight train. If he didn’t use the Breathe Right Strips, I would need to send him to the sofa!
They are amazing! The strips reduce snoring caused by nighttime nasal congestion. They also provide drug-free relief for congestion due to colds, allergies or a deviated septum. When placed on the nose properly, they gently lift the sides of the nose. This opens the nasal passages, providing immediate and continual relief. Helps increase airflow so you can breathe better. And when you can breathe better, you can sleep better.
If we do get the sniffles or other symptoms from seasonal illness, I have the trifecta of products I rely on. My family uses Halls Honey Lemon Flavor Menthol Drops in the 30 ct. Bag, TYLENOL® Cold + Flu Severe Caplets and Theraflu ExpressMax Severe Cold & Flu Caplets (for use in children 12 years of age or older.) If we have a scratchy and/or sore throat, Halls soothes it. And my family loves the Honey Lemon flavor!
The TYLENOL® Cold + Flu Severe Caplets is from my favorite #1 doctor recommended pain relief brand. With the TYLENOL® Cold + Flu Severe Caplets, I get all in one Cold and Flu symptom relief. It really stops congestion & sore throat. If you want powerful relief without a prescription, the Theraflu ExpressMax Severe Cold & Flu Caplets are super! Those caplets give you the power to feel better! They treat the symptoms of sore throat, nasal congestion, chest congestion, fever, headache, and body aches. Just be sure to check the ingredients in your medicine. Only use 1 products that contains acetaminophen at a time.
When I have the sniffles, my nose can get red and sore. It can hurt to wipe it. With Kleenex® Anti-viral, 99.9% of cold and flu viruses in the tissue are killed. They are so soft! They make wiping my nose something I don’t have to avoid. And because I only need to use one Kleenex® tissue, I get a great value as well. No wonder this is the #1 consumer preferred brand!

What you will need for your Easy $15 DIY Medicine Cabinet Makeover:
Small Storage Containers
Something to clean cabinet with
Step One: Take everything out of the cabinet. If you have shelves that are removable, take these out as well. Clean interior of cabinet and shelves, if applicable.
Step Two: Tape outside edges of cabinet. Since we used spray paint, we taped a few trash bags around the walls and sink to avoid splattering.
Step Three: Paint interior of cabinet. If you have shelves, don’t forget to paint the support pieces!
Step Four: Measure, cut and apply contact paper to shelves. Cut an additional piece for the bottom of the cabinet. Allow cabinet to dry completely before applying.
Step Five: Once paint is completely dry, insert shelves.
Step Six: Arrange your products in the cabinet. Use your smaller containers for band aids, flossers, q-tips, etc. Add all your germ fighting and feel better products, including your Breathe Right strips, Extra Clear Dial Complete, Halls Honey Lemon, Kleenex® Anti-Viral, Theraflu ExpressMax Caplets and TYLENOL® Cold + Flu Severe Caplets. Can you believe the difference in the before and after? Crazy how a little paint, colorful contact paper and storage containers can make a world of difference!
