Cold and flu season is cometh.

And we are all staring it down, waiting on the other side of the winter wall…and IT is staring back.

Friends, we are on the verge of a full-on attack that comes every year. Well, I get sick every year, so I kind of assume you’ll all be sick sometime this winter too.

If that’s the case, you know we have to get our act together, quit this fighting between the Lannisters and Starks, and get ourselves prepared for the fight of our immune systems’ lives.  

Ok. Maybe it’s not THAT dramatic. But still.

It’s time for #FluSeasonHacks this year.

How to Prepare for Cold & Flu Season

Step 1: Throw out all of your old and expired stuff from last cold & flu season. That old guard was fine last year, but like all great Houses, we have to do a little cleaning-house before we can be prepared for the true season of war (against the cold and flu–let’s stay realistic here).

Step 2: Wash your hands, girl. Seriously, hand washing is REQUIRED for the household that seems to always get hit with the cold and flu. And kids are the worst about bringing that in the house–so insist on that hand-washing every time they turn around.

Step 3: On your next run to Kroger, you have to get a few things that are absolute MUSTS in your armament against the coming fight:

  • Kleenex® Germ Removal Wet Wipes (because you should only trust a wipe that safely wipes away 99% of germs from skin that uses no harsh chemicals–do you really want to wipe your sickly nose with something less than superior?!)
  • Lipton Soothe Your Tummy (because you definitely need a little herbal infusion for those times your tummy feels less than its best*–this is the flu we’re talking about here!)
  • Theraflu Power Pods (do I really have to explain this one?! It’s powerful relief without a prescription–who doesn’t want that when you’re down for the count and the Lannisters are on your doorstep demanding vengeance?!)

To make all this preparation for this year’s cold & flu season easier, look for the $1.50 coupon on 4-pack Kleenex Facial Tissues, for Kleenex Germ Removal Wet Wipes. And, 11/4-11/24 you can get .50¢ off Kleenex 4-pack bundles and Kleenex Wet Wipes via this digital offer. How sweet is that?!

Step 4: Get your flu shot. There’s nothing worse than actually having the flu. It’s like the armies of dragons are at your castle gates, but you have to knock them down one-by-one, all at the same time. Your body has no idea what to do. Having the shot is like your army being at your back and forming a shield-wall of resistance. Just get the shot.

Step 5: Gather all of your cold & flu season gear in one place so you know where to find it when the sneezes, backache, and general miserableness strike. Because the last thing you want to be doing while you’re dripping and gross (seriously) is to be searching all over the house for Theraflu. Let’s face it, that stuff is critical for relief. And don’t get me started on having to dig through cabinets to find your Kleenex Wet Wipes. Not. Fun. To save myself the headache, I plop all my cold and flu gear in a basket that lives under the sink in the bathroom.

Step 6: Break out your jackets and blankets–and give ’em a wash. You have no idea what nasty virus you had last year or if it could survive a year on your favorite jean jacket, scarf, or cuddly-blanket. Wash that. You know it needs it.
