5 Ways To Deal When The Cough And Cold Hits Your House

Plenty of Shows on the DVR

If we’re being honest with ourselves, you and I both know that when we’re sick we are not going anywhere. If you have DVR then now is the perfect time to watch all of the shows you’ve been missing out on. If the little ones are sick too, you might get stuck watching Paw Patrol a few hundred times, but that’s okay!

Bucket by the Bed or Couch

No matter what kind of sickness my family is dealing with, I always keep a bucket by the beds. You see, I’m just not willing to take any chances when it comes to anyone puking. There’s nothing worse than cleaning up your family’s puke, so this is something I automatically do each and every time. While you’re at it, you might as well put double sheeting on the bed. If you have a water proof pad this is a great time to use it on the bed as well!

Extra Pillows 

I have to admit that I’m a big old baby when I’m sick and I need to have a ton of pillows in my resting area. We have a ton of guest pillows we use and I just prop myself up to try and relax.cough and cold in bed

Grandparents on Speed Dial

If you’re just too sick to deal with any little ones running around, then it might be wise to have close friends and family on speed dial. As long as the kids aren’t sick, you shouldn’t have any problem finding someone to recruit to help you out. One look at your face and they are sure to help!

Having Proper Medication

Cough and Cold Medicine At Walgreens

There’s nothing worse than NOT having the right medications in your medicine cabinet when it’s your homes turn to be sick. Every couple of months I head over to Walgreens to stock up on all of favorite Pfizer products like Advil, Thermacare, Robitussin, Centrum, Caltrate, Emergen-c, and even Chapstick. By the way, now is a great time to stock up on your favorite Pfizer family products. During the month of November, you can save up to $10 on select Pfizer products with the coupon booklet found in store or online!

    besides the medicine or proper treatment, the dvr is the next best thing to have lol =)

  • vidya sudarsan

    Wallgreens has everything I need for the cold season! I also stock up on ginger 🙂

  • Shelley Zurek

    During Cough and Cold season, we stock up on Cold-Eeze and Ginger ale. We wash our hands a ton. Walgreens is right around the corner for grabbing what we need.

  • Jenn

    We are a bucket by the bed family too. My husband says they just had to “make it” to the bathroom when he was a kid. No thank you! I love shopping at Walgreens. They always have great products for excellent prices.

    • Brandy

      It’s just easier in the middle of the night when your not awake to have a bucket close by.

      • Brandy

        That’s a guarantee! Not only does it have great flavor but it’s packed with things that help your body heal.

  • Mel

    I love Walgreens! I rely on them for all my flu needs! Chicken soup is always on my list.

  • Stevie DAndrea

    I feel like I live in walgreens when I have a cold haha I stock up on everything- I too am a big baby when I’m sick!

    • Brandy

      Walgreens carries everything my family needs during the flu season it’s so nice to have a one stop shop.

  • Teressa Morris

    I wish I had stocked up since 3 out of 5 of us are now on antibiotics and there is no cough medicine in sight!! I would highly recommend everyone gets their flu shot, and stock up on probiotics as well. Great tips!!

  • katherine

    Advil is my go to medicine when i’m sick! It’s all I ever use.

    • Brandy

      It’s such a great medicine for so many things.

  • Jenna Wood

    Haha, I carry a bucket/trash can anytime I’m sick, the other half has a gag reflex that leads to unpleasant results, and I have a mountain of tissues to dispose of. Walgreens is great for stocking up last minute, or before the flu hits.

  • Mindy McGowan

    My daughter, husband and I all just got over a bad cold that lingered in our house for over a month. It’s definitely not fun! Being prepared is so important, because the last thing you want to do when you are sick is leave the house. I like to keep meds on hand and ready to go!

    • Brandy

      Glad everyone is on the mend!

  • Cristi Comes

    We have the crud right now! Ugh. Staying hydrated and getting lots of sleep really helps. I wish the grandparents lived close by!

    • Brandy

      Hope everyone gets better soon! Not a fun way to start November.

  • Lena

    I am all there – desperately need to restock my supply of go to the medicine. I so don’t want to get sick being pregnant and all

    • Brandy

      Being pregnant intensifies the aches and pains when your sick! Wishing you luck this cold and flu season.

  • Andrea Kruse

    Great tips! Yes, I know I will get sick sometime this Winter. I like to have a stash of books or Audio Books on my Kindle. Really it is the only chance I get to catch up on reading! #client

  • Patty

    I love Walgreens for all of my needs for cold and Flu season. I stock up on the essentials there and then make a big pot of chicken soup.
