5 Ways to Save at the Drugstore

*Disclosure- This is not a sponsored post. I am just a huge fan of CVS/pharmacy and wanted to share these helpful tips with my readers!

It's that time of year where germs are lurking around every corner, just waiting to hop on board and make us sick. With my kids back in school now, they've already both had a round of feeling ill, with my oldest already having to see the doctor this season. I am a busy mom and hate how much time is spent at the doctor. Then more time sucked up waiting for our prescriptions to be filled. It's time consuming, but a necessary evil. CVS/pharmacy wants to help make it a little more easier for when illness strikes, by offering 5 simple tips to save time at the pharmacy.

  1. Wait for your reminders. Don’t waste time going to pick up a prescription that’s not ready. Many pharmacies like CVS/pharmacy now offer text or email alerts or provide customers with a call when it’s time to pick up a prescription.
  2. Keep all your information in one place. Save time by keeping all prescriptions managed in one place. For example, CVS/pharmacy enables consumers to have 24 hour access to their prescription records, view and order refills, and keep them up-to-date with health needs all via their CVS/pharmacy Mobile smartphone app, CVS/pharmacy iPad app or
  3. Scan to Refill. Quickly and easily scan the barcode on a current prescription when it needs to be refilled. Many pharmacies now have secure apps which allow customers to refill prescriptions in seconds.
  4. App-tastic. With advancing technology, there are many tools that help consumers not only save time, but stay healthy. The CVS/pharmacy Mobile smartphone app has great features like the Drug Interaction Checker which helps customers avoid drug mishaps by checking medications and their reactions with other medications, over-the-counter products, foods, or lifestyle elements, such as the sun. It also features a Pill Identifier, which takes the guess work out of which pills are which and lets people search by color, shape, and markings on the pill to ensure the right medication is taken to treat the right medical condition.
  5. Time your visit right. Of course the busiest times at pharmacies vary by location, but it has been found that going to the pharmacy during mid-morning or late afternoon it can be generally less busy. Also, it’s important to note, the first of every month is when most people get paid and Medicaid benefits are renewed so pharmacies can typically be much busier then too.

Music Made Me Do It! SOL REPUBLIC’s Saviors of Sound Share Stories of Musical Inspiration #MMMDI {Giveaway}

As a music lover, some days I feel I breathe music. I don't think I could go a day without it. I start my day with turning on the car radio while driving my girls to school. I get moving to the music while cleaning. I sweat it out during my hip hop fitness classes. Music motivates and inspires. It evokes passion, joy, sorrow and amusement, as well as a wide range of pure emotions. It can be a voice when we don't have one of our own, conveying thoughts for us. Music has a way of touching us, and even has the ability to make us step out of our comfort zone, encouraging us to try new things.

Has music ever inspired you to do something like that? Over the next month, SOL REPUBLIC 's Saviors of Sound will be sharing their stories about how music has enabled them to amazing things, from the incredible to the cringe-worthy in their first ever campaign, Music Made Me Do It (#MMMDI). Athlete Michael Phelps and DJ/Producer/Dim Mak Records Founder Steve Aoki are two of the SOL REPUBLIC SOS involved with the project. Everyone is encouraged to view the #MMMDI video below, then share your #MMMDI moment.

For me, music has helped me lose 15 pounds this year. When I go to the gym, the music is pumping and it gets me to work harder. It even made me sign up for the hip hop fitness class. I can't dance. At all. Watching the girls move and shake to hip hop beats was a bit intimidating to me. But the music drew me in, and before I knew it, I was hooked and started going to 3 classes a week. The workouts are intense, and soon I saw the weight just melting off. Hurray for fun music that is making me get fit and healthy!

Now that I've shared my #MMMDI moment, I want you to share yours! As a special treat, those of you who do share your Music Made Me Do It #MMMDI moment will have the chance to Win the Ultimate SOL REPUBLIC Prize Pack!
