Many thanks to the Johnson & Johnson Family of Consumer Companies and The Motherhood for sponsoring this conversation on how to save money on your healthcare routine and have a fresh start to healthcare resolutions in the new year!

Does anyone else feel unable to escape the inevitable colds and illnesses indoor living brings? We’re taking turns being down for the count here, and no one seems to be able to gather much energy.  Even as I type my little one is laid out on the couch with a fever and his sister is still trying get rid of a cold that started four weeks ago.  Oh summer, where art thou?

Which is why I did a happy dance when this arrived on my doorstep:

I unwrapped it a few days later, and it was filled with Healthy Essential products from Johnson & Johnson.  My son had literally just started shivering from a fever and I wrapped him in that warm red fleece vest.  Talk about perfect timing!

Purchasing healthcare related items can be expensive, but I really like to have them on hand when they’re needed.  Items like Bandaids and Neosporin can’t wait for a trip to the drugstore, and when fever strikes no ones wants to venture out into the cold to pick up products.  That’s why I like to take advantage of special deals and coupons to stock my First Aid and Medicine bins.

Just in time for the season, Johnson & Johnson is offering over $45 off these popular products in January simply by signing up for their coupons and offers.  If your New Year’s goal was to freshen up your healthcare routine, you can kick off that resolution by arming yourself with products that help with anything from digestion to pain relief to personal care products.
