Cold and Flu Survival Kit

       Ugh! Flu season is here and it's not looking good! Wouldn't it be nice if you could sit down with a calendar and decide on what days would work best for you to catch a cold or get the flu? Then you can be completely prepared for it and have everything you need to help you get through it. Unfortunately it doesn't work that way. Usually you get sick when you least expect it. One day you're feeling great and then you wake up the next day feeling completely miserable. And lets face it, the last thing you want to do when your sick is drag yourself to the store to get medicine, soup, and anything else you may need to get you through the next couple days. That's why this cold and flu survival kit is so great! Once you put this kit together, keep it in a place that is easy to access. Whenever flu season rolls around and you do get sick, you will have everything you need in one handy container.
Today I'm sharing a list of items to include in your cold and flu survival kit as well as a free printable to keep with you kit.

Items to include in your cold and flu survival kit:

A few tips 
  1. Buy items online in bulk to make multiple kits and gift out to friends and loved ones.
  2. Go through the medicine every couple of months and replace anything that has expired.
  3. After being sick, replace products as necessary before putting your kit away so that it will be full the next time you need it.

Have you caught the flu this year? What are your best survival tips? Are there any other items you would add to this flu kit?
