Walgreens Medicine Cabinet Makeover

Back in April I wrote this post where I talked about a film crew and a gift basket. Here's what it was all about.

After our 6 children were grown and busily producing our 19 and one-on-the-way grandchildren and our 2 and one-on-the-way great grandchildren, we realized that we'd allowed our medicine cabinet to become an entity of its own. It grew and grew and became more and more unmanageable.

We were reluctant to throw anything away because as we all know, emergencies can happen at any time and then who knows what we might need out of there. So whenever we needed anything, we pretty much went and bought it and blissfully avoided getting rid of things that should have been gotten rid of. After all, can I emphasize it enough? You never know what might come in handy in an emergency.
Not surprisingly our medicine cabinet became unorganized and chaotic and we realized it was time to address the problem.

A few months ago, a film crew and Walgreens Pharmacist visited our house to do a medicine cabinet makeover. Here are the results:

How awesome that we were left with lots of good information - like how to dispose of outdated drugs, and why it's not a good idea to hold onto outdated products. On top of that, we scored some great products that empty nesters and full nesters alike shouldn't be without. Here's what we got: A Quick Read Thermometer, Antibiotic Bandages, SPF 55 Sheer Sunscreen, a huge bottle of Liquid (Children's) Ibuprofen, 81 mg Aspirin, a cold pack, Wal Zyr Allergy Tablets, Epsom Salts, a blood pressure monitor, Omeprazole Acid Reducer tablets, and a nighttime sleep aid.

And this is what you can get, too. Walgreens is giving this gift basket to one lucky reader. Leave a comment, tweet about this post, or mention it in Facebook. Any one of these actions will garner an entry. If you do all three, leave three comments telling me so.

This giveaway will end Friday evening, July 1st at 9 p.m.
