Shoppers Drug Mart Back to School Prep Kit

September is just a few days away and then it’s back to school. Yet as excited as we all are to go back, there’s one catch that goes along with it. Sickness.

Each and every September, my kids bring home some sort of cold and/or flu, usually hitting hard about the third week of the month. Then, it goes down the family line one by one and if we’re lucky, we’ll be healthy again by Halloween. Still so excited about back to school?

The good news: We have a heads up on this, parents, let’s all ban together and try our best to keep that sickness away. If we all try, we just might succeed and have a healthy Fall season!

This year, I have a plan against attack. Thanks to some great strategies and products like sanitizer, vitamins, more hand-washing reminders and changing items like toothbrushes out with new ones – those germ bugs might wave the white flag.

Fingers crossed this will be the year we win!


WIN IT: Shoppers Drug Mart is offering my Canadian readers a Back to School Prep Kit to help keep your kids healthy as they head back to class!

Valued at over $150, it contains a $100 gift card to use at your local Shoppers Drug Mart, where you can pick-up any last-minute essentials. It also contains day-to-day health items like Life Brand Hand Sanitizer, Antibacterial Bandages, Gummy Vites with Minerals, a Cavity Fighting Toothbrush, Facial Pocket Pack and Sterile Saline Wound Wash – all packed-up in a new Skylanders backpack {pictured above}.

After all, Shoppers Drug Mart stocks so much, right down to that healthy glass of OJ. Plus, I love collecting and redeeming my points with my Shoppers Optimum card – one of my favourite loyalty cards ever. Ever.
