I especially don’t have time to go running out to the pharmacy at 9pm whenever an emergency strikes, because we all know it always has to happen within a half hour of it closing right? This season I’m all about prevention. I already have my flu shot (check), physical (check), kids & hubby are all good (che…uh I hope lol). Now it’s time to purge and restock our medicine cabinet. I’m gonna be ready this year ya’ll. Step 1 – Assess Your Medicine Cabinet/Closet Situation My bathroom closet is a sort of catch-all for linens, medicines and my some of my beauty product stash, since we don’t have an official medicine cabinet. My 2nd shelf is dedicated to our health care items. *apartment life* Step 2 – Check for Quantity and Expiration Dates Figure out what you want to keep, which items are running low and what can be tossed. Step 3 – Determine What Can Be Disposed of At Home There are lots of ways to properly get rid of old medicines. The FDA recommends you Flush These Medicines. Others can simply be mixed with kitty litter or dirt and thrown in the trash. If you’re unsure about a medication or just don’t feel like figuring that all out, don’t worry, I found an easy solution in step 5. Just set the “unsure’s” aside for now. Step 4 – Make a list of what you need to restock Step 5 – Head to the store to get what you need This month Walgreens has a deal where you can save $15 on Pfizer products, so that’s where I went. Oh and remember those “unsure” medicines you might have from Step 3, well… did you know that Walgreens has a program to help you properly dispose of those medications? Yup they do. It’s called the Walgreens Safe Medication Disposal Program and all you do is go to the pharmacy counter and buy a medication mailer for $2.99. Fill it up and mail it. Postage is pre-paid and everything. Done! Don’t forget to scratch out any personal identifiable info on your prescription bottles or packages before you mail them though. Step 6 – Go Home and restock your shelves. We are officially purged and stocked for the months ahead. Oh and I decided to go with a lazy susan to help out with the limited space in my closet and to keep things better organized. Now I want you to give yourself a big pat on the back for a job well done you healthy super star. Until next time Stars, keep those medications stocked! I didn’t buy a huge haul on this trip but there are many more Pfizer products you can grab at Walgreens to catch the savings deal this month: Click Here So Stars, How Often Do You Purge & Stock Your Medicine Cabinets?
