Create a "Sick Stash" and organize your supplies BEFORE you need them! We actually did do that and it is a good thing because we have been hit with a double whammy this week! Snow, ice, winds AND I have the flu! So everyone has food, supplies, medicine (for me!) and no one had to leave the house in a storm! Her pin has some good ideas what to stock.
When toddler or baby is stuffed up from a cold, since it says not to put Vick's on infants or toddlers this is an amazing way to give them relief throughout the day or as they sleep add a table spoon of Vick's and a table spoon of water to your Scentsy or any warmer, simple and easy and effective. Great for adults too!
DIY: Flu Season Survival Kit | Frugal Upstate. it wouldn't hurt to add these to a Bug Out bag or even to your stay in emergency supplies. Hard times also bring sickness, so be prepared for those that you can handle, like colds and flu, headache and injury pain or fever reduction. Wouldn't hurt to put a large bottle of multi-vitamins in any emerg kit too.
