Finding affordable healthcare this day and age is hard, let alone trying to get it for your whole family. It can be quite expensive especially if you don’t have insurance. So when I heard of Walgreens new and improved healthcare clinic I was so excited to check it out and share what I found out about them.

#healthcareclinic #shop

I headed to Walgreens which was less than ten minutes away from my house which is so convenient for my family and I. I was so happy it wasn’t too packed I had a few other people in front of me. I met the Nurse Practitioner at the front desk and she told me what they offered and told me to go to the side to make an appointment.

#healthcareclinic #shopShe showed me how easy it was to use the touch screen tablet to make an appointment and to specify what was ailing me. I have a bad knee from an injury I had a few months ago, till this day it is still painful and I have a hard time moving my leg certain ways without screaming out in pain. So something like the Walgreens Healthcare Clinic will save me so much time and money, and get my leg working in no time.

They offer  immunizations, physicals and wellness visits,health screenings and testing,they treat aches and pains,skin conditions and so much more! They even have a special for School and Sport Physicals for only $39 dollars, originally it was $60 dollars. That is perfect for back to school to get you child checked!

They were called before “Walgreens “Take Care Clinic” they heard your feedback and re did the whole clinic and added more services. Some of them are:

Vaccines: Teranus shots, Flu shot, Diphtheria, Pertussis,MMR, HPV,HEP A&B and so many more!

Physicals & Wellness Visits: Health Screenings & Testing. Checking Blood pressure, Cholesterol, Diabetes screening and more!
They also treat Seasonal Allergies,joint pain,cold,flu,sinus infections and more.

They also treat ongoing health conditions like :

Acid influx & acid indigestionAsthma / Chronic bronchitis, Cardiovascular Conditions,Diabetes,Osteoarthritis/ Osteoporosis, Thyroid disorders, Medications & Treatments :EpiPen refills / Injection services,Medication renewal /Travel medications and more

Going to the Emergency room is too expensive for something that can easily assessed at the Healthcare clinic. Where I live I am at least 20 minutes away from the Emergency room, but the Walgreens Clinic is less then 10 minutes  away from my family and I. I just moved to Texas and I have no idea where anything is, but then when I found out my local ER was over 20 minutes away I was quickly looking for another alternative.

I found a few health care clinic’s but they were way over priced and not worth the drive. So when I found out about Walgreens new and improved clinic I was overjoyed because they are open 7 days a week and even weeknights that’s perfect for me, I can leave work and head straight to the clinic to get checked. Check out my Google Plus Album to see my trip to the doctor.

The prices on seeing a doctor may vary depending on what you are there for and what promotions they may have. With board-certified Family Nurse Practitioners and Physicians Assistants you can trust their professional care. They also follow up with you by phone call after your visit. There is also more than 370 Healthcare Clinic locations nationwide, find one near you. Of course walk-ins are welcome or you can schedule and appointment online how amazing is that! I also found you can check the wait time in your area because you pop in.

One thing I really loved is the signs throughout the health aisles called “Answers at Walgreens” they gave us tidbits on what to do when you are in pain. The Walgreens Healthcare Clinic is truly something I feel every person and parent should checkout when they are trying to save money.  It’s great to know that Walgreens has my back when it comes to answering my questions and keeping money in my pocket.

Skin health is important and so is prevention at any age. Keeping your face cleansed properly and moisturized is essential . And I was introduced to a really great product called Own refining moisture night cream that helps you conquer crows feet by 61% and decreases wrinkles by 30% doesn’t that sound amazing.  I have noticed that alot of the night creams out there leave your face all greasy which can lead to clogged pores. I have been searching for a night cream that would not make my face oily, with Own’s Night cream it made my face feel silky smooth.

Product Details
● Retinol-free
● Does not cause irritation, redness or flakiness
● Dermatologist-tested

When I opened the package and applied the product I noticed that it had a soft scent and didn’t smell like other creams out there. I have allergies and this cream did not break me out which is a huge plus in my book.

Overall I am in love with Own refining night cream, it feels light on the skin, it’s easy to use, evens out skin tone and improves skin texture all while Minimizing wrinkles.

Staying happy and healthy with Walgreens!

walgreeeeeen

This day and age life is moving at a fast pace and there is no sign of slowing down. Imagine when you get sick sometimes you just don’t want to even move out of your bed let alone drive to the store. So I was so elated to hear that Walgreens has an app for your phone that  has everything you need. This app enables you to check weekly ad’s at your local walgreens stores, order photo prints from your cellphone, check coupons for your local store and scan prescriptions.

walgreensapp2

I decided to download the app and couldn’t believe how easy it was to use. And how I can be in my jammies all while refiling my prescriptions.

walgreennnnnnOnce I opened the app it took me less then 30 seconds to scan my prescription and get it refilled. See my journey here!

Something that I thought was so awesome was the balance rewards card, you receive points when you shop for items. So 5,000 points equals 5 dollars and so on! This program helps you save money on products, earn points all while being able to redeem them for rewards. It allows you to save money on products, earn points, and then redeem them for rewards. You can even earn rewards by walking! Yes I said it Walking! You earn 10 points for every mile you walk. Make sure to check out the Walk with Walgreens part of Balance Rewards!

I went to Walgreens and made my way to the Pharmacy department and found some great deals on the way. Alot of the vitamins were buy one get one 50% off. I remember when my mom would give me cod liver oil the liquid form can you say yuck!! I am so grateful that they have them in pill forms now. They also had a table in the very front with information on how you can transfer your prescriptions from other stores to Walgreens. The customer service at this Walgreens was awesome, one of the employee’s Shirley was such a  great help and guided me where I wanted to go with ease.

I was in and out of walgreens, went there got what I needed without any fuss.

Preventing Germs in your home with Kleenex #SharetheSoft

It’s that time again, Sniffles, runny noses, itchy eyes. Dare I say it?…….Flu and Allergy season. Dun Dun Dun…….As an allergy sufferer I feel your pain and I am always looking for ways to prevent allergies,colds or flu’s in my home. I First like to disinfect my home with a disinfectant, and make sure I have the proper tools to do so. I like to prevent from within  meaning preventing a cold or allergy attack, from coming on, by Drinking lots of orange juice or taking vitamins.  The main thing you should do is prevent the germs from spreading. You can make sure to cover your mouth when you cough and also make sure to wash your hands but did you know that, you can wash your hands all you want but they are only as clean as the towel used to dry them?

IMG_2804

Well when I found out Kleenex® has a new line of hand towels I got a bit excited and new I had to try them out. I drove to my local walmart and could not find them for the life of me. Then I drove to another one and finally found it, you know if you drive to two Walmart’s and can’t find the products you are looking for that means it must be good.  I found it for $2.97 but they do have bundled packs for $5.00 isn’t that a great deal?! I love having this product in my home, because you know sometimes when you dry your hands with a towel you just don’t feel like it’s very clean. And we all know Kleenex® makes amazing items especially for preventing germs.

kleenex

While I was at walmart i picked up a few things, to help me prevent and treat colds,flu’s and allergies. I Picked up some Orange Juice, having a daily dose of Vitamin C can boost your immune system and help shorten your cold or flu. I made sure to grab some hand santizer that i can have with me at all times. And i always have a pack of Allergy Relief pills with me, I love being outdoors but the outdoors don’t love me. So I am usually rubbing my eyes and sneezing because of it.

I love how the Kleenex® hand towels looks, It matches my bathroom’s decor and is very easy to use. You can leave it as is on the counter or you can flip it upside down on a towel bar which is pretty awesome. Kleenex® is a trusted brand in my home, it is a great quality item and it’s affordable which is a huge plus! I am glad that i can have something in my house that will make my hands feel 100% germ free. (Read my Googleplus+ story here)
