Easy Get Better Packets: DIY

get better packetsYesterday, I shared my “Easy Get Better Packets” with my friends, and they loved them. So, I decided to share the idea with you.

I’m sure if you’re like me, you get tons of freebies in the mail, or take advantage of sales at stores when you’re able to get trial sized medicine packets for free. I stocked up on a bunch of free meds during the CVS Black Friday sale, and  I personally have a shoebox full of items.

Most of the items I have weren’t getting use because I don’t like to take medicine. Secondly, when I did get really sick to the point I was forced to take something, I forgot I had medicine in the shoebox, and would go out and buy more.

One day while adding new meds to the shoebox I had an “aha ha” moment. I’d make little packets, put them in clear baggies, and place them in different areas so I can see what I have, and I’ll always have meds on hand when I need them.

The “Easy Get Better Packets” are simple to make. All you need are snack sized storage baggies, and trial size, or individual packaged items to fill the bags with.

In the picture above I have Advil, Aleve, Aspirin, cough drops, tea, and Rolaids. Thats one of the packages I keep at work. In the spring I add allergy medicine, and kleenex to the baggie.  You can add any items you want, for example,  vitamins, Emergen-C, Airborne packets, Tums, Theraflu, cough medicine, (as long as everything is individually wrapped).

You can keep packets at home, in your glove compartment, at work, in your purse, and anywhere else you might want to have one handy.

Do you do something similar with your freebies? Comment below and let me know. Also, remember to keep up with me (and the savings) on Facebook, Twitter, Instagram, Google+, and Pinterest.
