Cold and Flu Season is coming, make sure you’re ready for it before it starts by stocking up on medicine and supplies at Sam’s Club while getting your Flu Shot! 
A mom friend of mine once told me about her “Sick Basket” and we have created one in our house every year since!  It’s a basket or bin that you fill with all the supplies you will need when someone inevitably gets sick.  We tuck it away in the linen closet and then pull it out when we need it, this is the best feeling when that icky feeling strikes in the middle of the night!
I’m sure every family has their own list of favorite things that make a bad cold or even worse, the flu, more bearable.
Everything in my basket is conveniently available at Sam’s Club.  With 5 people in my family, we get sick!  I love being able to stock up on everything I’m going to need at Sam’s Club and forgetting about it until it’s needed.
In my Sick Basket I keep:
1) Hard Candy, for sore or dry throats.  I like caramel candies because they remind me of my Nana but many people prefer cough drops.
2) Tea, I love curling up with a hot and steamy cup of sleepy time tea when I’m under the weather.
3) Antibacterial Wipes, with a household of 5 the germs get passed along quickly.  I like to spray down remotes, door knobs and everything else that we touch often.
5) ChapStick, for when your lips get extra dry and under your nose get red and sore from too much wiping.
6) Tissues are a must.
7) Hand Sanitizer also helps clean up hands quickly while also disinfecting them.
8) A Thermometer is also an important thing to have quickly assessable.  Before keeping our in our sick basket, I used to lose thermometers all over the house which made for the crazy middle of the night searches too often.
9) A Water Bottle with a cover is also great for those days your couch-ridden.  I like to put a tablespoon of Honey, Lemon Juice, and a Table Spoon of warm Coconut Oil in my water when I’m sick for a little immune booster.
10)  Dog Walking Bags (or diaper trash bags) for stomach aches.  These make for cheap, easy, and disposable barf bags!
11) Medicine!  The best way to feel better faster is with a good quality cold and flu medication to relieve those miserable symptoms.  Vicks is a trusted brand in our home and when the hubby or I am sick we like to use DayQuil and Nyquil for relief.

    I have the same problem – ordered six pair online and was debating whether to contact Hanes – I ordred them through Penney’s catalog – they smelled when I opened the package – and I saw the heat of your body makes them fit better – I got them on sale, but they were $50.00 due to a great coupon by J.C. Penney. I had not washed them yet – they have a horrible smell.

    Muchísimas gracias. Parece que lo más seguro es una casilla independiente para cesiones y para publicidad (cualquier finalidad no relacionada con el contrato). Otra cosa es que a partir de ese contrato, aunque no nos hayan consentido para publicidad, la LSSI nos faculte para remitirle comunicaciones comerciales, pero solo de servicios muy similares al que dio origen a la relación contractual previa habilitante.

    Нашла эту компанию через интернет, сравнила цены с другими компаниями в Sib Decкor оказалась самая доступная. После выбрала нужный товар и сделала заказ по форме сайта. Мне прислали ответ и реквизиты, я на свой риск и страх скинула всю сумму денег сразу , но сначала позвонила и пообщалась с Максимом лично, мне так вроде как спокойнее. Он в ответ мне на почту прислал подтверждение платежа. Это было 24 марта, а 25 он уже скинул мне номер посылки для отслеживания в интернете. Пятого апреля посылка пришла ко мне в г. Владивосток. Посылка упакована супер аккуратно, товар весь переложен картоном, все составляющие набора на месте. В связи с этим хочу выразить большое спасибо компании Sib Decкor и в частности ее директору Максиму, удачи вашему бизнесу, успехов и процветания.

    An interesting dialogue is value comment. I believe that you must write more on this subject, it won’t be a taboo subject however typically individuals are not enough to speak on such topics. To the next. Cheers

    I hope it ends up working for you! A lot of people have a transition period when they switch to using more natural hair washes. I didn’t really have one because I went from using a regular shampoo to a slightly more natural organic shampoo, to an even more natural organic shampoo, and then finally to the J.R. Ligget’s bar shampoo. So I think my hair had enough time to gradually get used to being washed with less chemicals and more natural ingredients.
