One of the hardest things about winter is that it also happens to be cold & flu season. Neither are any fun and can really sideline you (and your family). So, prepare your home for the season by taking stock of what you already have and then heading out to the store to pick up anything that you might need to be ready when someone gets sick. In fact, we're sharing a printable checklist below to help keep you organized! You can find your cold & flu must-haves at Family Dollar. Money-Saving Tip: When you're shopping at Family Dollar, make sure you check out the Weekly Deals and then use their Smart Coupons to save even more.
Let's face it, no one wants to have to go shopping when they're already feeling terrible from a bad cold or the flu. Plus, no one in the store wants your germs! So, it's a great idea to make sure your house is armed & ready at the start of each winter for any illnesses that might strike. To help make it easier for you, we have a printable checklist!

You can use the checklist to take inventory of what you already have in the house (in your medicine cabinets, cleaning closet/cupboard, pantry, etc.). Then, you can take the list with you to the store to help you remember what items to pick up.
It's always good to be prepared with certain food items like soups, water, electrolyte drinks, etc. and various household items like hand soap, facial tissues, cleaning wipes, and more. When checking items in the medicine cabinet, it's important to look at expiration dates of what you already have as well. For any questions about over-the-counter "medicine cabinet" items good for cold & flu season, be sure to consult your doctor!
