My Winter Medicine Cabinet Must Haves

During the winter months I become the world's most paranoid person ever. I haven't been like this my entire life, but because Em is considered "medically fragile" with her diagnosis of holoprosencephaly, I try to be extra vigilant during the winter to make sure our house stays germ free, and that when someone does catch something, I like to make sure our house is well stocked and prepared ahead of time, so that we can nip whatever is going around in the bud before it gets out of hand. In the early fall I usually head over to Smith's and pick up everything we'll need in on fell swoop, that way everything is on hand when we need it, and we're not rushing out the door to get something the moment someone gets a sniffle. We like to keep lots of things on hand, but here are six things we never like to be without:


Dial Hand Soap: As you can imagine, I'm a huge advocate for hand washing. I try to keep at least three backups of Dial Complete Foaming Handwash in the cabinet at all times. I love that it's antibacterial and kills 99.9% of germs, and that it's America's #1 selling soap.

Halls Cough Drops: These are a must have for when you get that scratch in your throat that won't go away. I love the honey lemon flavor, something Derek turned me onto after we got married, and I love that these ones have triple soothing action, so they get the job done quickly!

Kleenex Anti-Viral Tissues: Tissues are an obvious no brainer, but these Kleenex Anti-viral tissues kill 99.9% of germs in the tissue. Nothing like getting the germs killed right on the spot. Bonus points for being the #1 consumer preferred brand!

Breathe Right Extra: I never understood why my parents used these when I was younger, and now as an adult, I can't live without them. My nose always gets so stuffed when I try to sleep in the winter months and it is awful! I love using Breathe Right Extra because it helps breathe, sleep, and feel better without harmful drugs, and it's super easy to apply!

Tylenol Cold And Flu Severe: Derek is basically good for one intense round of getting "man sick" every winter, and Tylenol Cold and Flu Severe is his go to. He like's that there are both daytime, and nighttime pills in one package so he doesn't have to get multiple products. It's his go to for all in one relief from cold and flu symptoms.


Theraflu ExpressMax: Know how basically every mom says that it should be illegal for mom's to get sick? I love taking Theraflu ExpressMax Severe Cold and Flu because it's powerful relief without a prescription, and it defeats 7 cold and flu symptoms fast. That way I can keep the house running and the kids alive while Derek is in bed being "man sick".
What are your favorite items to stock the house with in the winter months? I love that I can grab everything I need at Smith's before the season gets here, and know that I have some peace of mind all winter long! Take advantage of savings on these products.

  1. Your winter stock mirrors my own. We always blow right through it. Especially with the kids having colds and my husband having allergies.

  3. You are so well prepared for winter! i have literally nothing in my medicine cabinet and never really prepare for anything. I just go to the shop if something happens. Maybe I should be better prepared

  5. I'd say we could swap carts at the local drugstore that's how identical our list seems to be.

  8. All my medicine cabinet picks here, plus I get the kid versions for most of them. I do love the honey lemon flavor of halls. I do keep everything stocked in winters instead of running to the pharmacy every time me or my kids sneeze.

  9. Its never a bad thing to be stocked up but also preventive with hand soaps like you are, especially if your little one is at higher risk of picking things up. I really like those soap dispensers you don't have to touch. I may have to look into the nasal strips, I am always sniffly when I wake up!

  10. It's good to be prepared especially this season! I usually have Tylenol and Vicks when the season comes around. I think these are all good to have at home!

  15. Cough drops, tylenol, all must haves for the winter. Thankfully our family has been fairly healthy so far... The dry weather and cold air doesn't help though!

  16. This was actually quite useful as I never know which products to get but I may just buy them in bulk ready for winter.

  17. Yes, yes and yes. I'm struggling to breathe just reading this. Add some vix vapor rub, and our cabinets match!
