BJ’s to the Rescue this Cold and Flu Season

by Nicole on February 10, 2013

I have had several colds this season and a bout of early pneumonia and it’s only February! Ugh! BJ’s is definitely my go-to store for stocking up on cold and flu necessities!

The holiday season is over and we have now reluctantly entered into another season…cold and flu. The flu is now widespread in 47 states so make sure to stock up on necessary precautionary items and of course, at the first sign of a cold grab the necessary ‘survival kit’ items.

For this “Season of Sickness” protect yourself and your family with a helpful kit that will fill your medicine cabinet with up-to-date medicines and protection for any symptoms. The America Public Health Association recommends the following items and they can all be found at BJ’s Wholesale Club.

Emergen-C
Nyquil
Throat lozenges
Purell
Tissues
Disinfecting Wipes
Breathe Right Strips
Decaf tea

Tips for the “Season of Sickness”:

· Check the expiration dates on all medicine and replace any that have expired.

· Stop germs from spreading by using a disinfectant spray at home and at work and always wash your hands.

· Run a humidifier to loosen congestion.

· Get the right amount of sleep, eat properly and stay hydrated.

BJ’s Wholesale Club has just rolled out their first Digital Journal which includes $18 worth of coupons, smoothie and chili recipes, examples of how to use kale and easy de-stress and lifestyle tips. If you’re not a BJ’s member check out the one day savings pass included in the Journal.

This kit BJ’s put together for me has been great! I love the inclusion of decaf tea since I don’t do caffeine.  Also, the disinfecting wipes are great for not passing the germs back and forth in the house.  BJ’s is your one stop shop for all things cold and flu related – from wipes to medicine to even chicken soup and humidifiers, it’s all there!

I received samples to facilitate this post. All opinions are my own.

I am never sick, but my fiance is sick ALL THE TIME. Too bad we don’t have a BJ’s near here :(
