For a lot of parents, we're busy getting ready for back-to-school (or in my case, off-to-nursing school) season. We parents are super busy stocking up on back to school supplies, new clothes, and if your children are heading off to college, dorm room furniture too! But what many of us aren't thinking of is another season that goes hand in hand with back-to-school, that's cold and flu season. Not nearly as much fun to talk about or stock up for but a reality we face none the less. Did you know that every year approximately 32 million days of school and over 100 million work days are missed due to the flu? We all know that that nasty bug gets passed around so easily...and as much time as I spend in airports and on airplanes, I tend to pick up the bugs and bring them home to Angeline, not the other way around! Yeah, so that's why I picked up Puffs Plus Lotion Puffs Plus Lotion at Sam’s Club - they had a 10 pack, which will hopefully get us through the next few months.
If you’re sick enough that you can’t go to work or school, then you certainly don't want to find yourself stuck running to the store for last minute supplies. Adulting is hard enough as it is, it's even worse when you're in bed sick. I mean, really, all we truly want to do is curl up in bed with the cat, bad reality tv and good books.
The Adults Guide For Cold and Flu Season, When You Don't Want to Adult
Stock up on the essentials before your sick. A quick trip to Sams club and you can buy just about everything you will need in bulk.

Of course, being a full time blogger and working from home, I keep Puffs at my desk in my home office too, so that I am not constantly running around looking for one! With the 10 pack from Sam's Club, you can literally have your Puffs in every room of the house!
Did you know CDC officials say you should stay at home until you are fever-free for at least 24 hours, without the use of medication? That means it could be just you, your cat and the latest on Netflix for quite a few days. So be sure to purchase more than one of everything.
You can find a 10 pack of Puffs Plus Lotion at Sams Club and on SamsClub.com - so you will never resort to wads of toilet paper again.

I can't believe the kids are back in school and flu season is just around the corner. We're still having 90 degree temps outside! 🙂 We love Puffs!
Lol... hubby laughs at me because I cry at everything! Commercials, movies, tv shows, everything. Not to mention big events like first day of school, etc. And, of course, as soon as I start, my nose goes crazy, so these Puffs Plus Lotion are AWESOME to have on hand

I love Puffs Plus Lotion, especially this time of year. When I get a cold, I go through a lot of tissue, and Puffs is the only one that doesn't have me looking like Rudolph by the end of it.
Adulting is hard, so true! I am not looking forward to cold and flue season. I have one child that started kindergarten so we will be hit pretty rough with it this year :/
My cabinets are always stuffed with Puffs--Plus Lotion in the winter and the Ultra Soft or regular in the summer.
