The kids have been back to school for a while since winter break, but it is only February and we are still in the thick of cold and flu season. Who else dreads this part of the winter time like I do? They catch everything an bring it home to share with their mom. So generous of them! So today I wanted to share my list of get well essentials for the cold and flu season.

Ever since the beginning of January, I have been spending extra time going through each room of the house and really doing a deep clean. I cleaned under appliances, which if I am being honest, probably doesn’t happen as often as it should! Anyone else? I also cleaned above the cupboards, deep cleaned the bathrooms and our master bedroom. It has all needed the extra cleaning. But now I am at a good spot and it’s easier to do quick cleans while the kids are gone for the day. So I also wanted to share some cleaning tips and a fun printable.

But first, a few of my cold and flu season essentials!

Kroger stores are amazing. My local Fred Meyer always has everything that I ever need to get through the cold and flu season.

So I didn’t hesitate going and grabbing all the get well essentials for the cold and flu season.

Abreva® Pump Cold Sore and Fever Blister Treatment– Abreva is not for temporary symptom relief, but healing. It delivers the best results when used at the first sign of a cold sore (e.g. the tingle that one feels on his/her lip).

Lipton Soothe Your Tummy– The Lipton Wellness range, made with carefully selected botanicals and blended with essential oils, helps make wellbeing a part of your everyday routine. There are three kinds:

  • Soothe Your Tummy: An herbal infusion for those times your tummy feels less than its best.* Carefully selected botanicals like ginger and peppermint are blended with natural essential oils that make every cup delicious
  • Bedtime Bliss: An herbal infusion that sings you to sleep, like a lullaby in a cup.* Carefully selected botanicals are blended with natural essential oils that make every cup delicious
  • Daily Support: An excellent source of Vitamin C, this herbal infusion helps support your body’s natural defenses.* Carefully selected botanicals are blended with green tea and natural essential oils that make every cup delicious

I find that the Soothe Your Tummy is so good if I am feeling under the weather.

I am constantly cleaning doors, handles and sinks to keep germs away before they spread even further. A couple of places that people often forget are the tv remote, refrigerator door, or the dishwasher handle. But those are important too!

And I try to get my kids coats and sweatshirts through the wash regularly. I don’t even want to know what sort of germs are on those things!
