Whenever I am faced with a particularly hectic week, I find that being well prepared is half the battle. Splitting my days between work, mom-duties, homework, after-school activities and dinner makes the weekdays pretty exhausting. I find that if I just set a little time aside each night to prepare for the next day things goes much smoother around my home. Filling the coffee machine, prepping lunches and picking out the next days outfits usually result in mornings that go off with out a hitch.
What about the unexpected stuff you don’t think to plan for?
I don’t know about you, but nothing grabs my attention faster than stomach pain and a distinct rumbling in my gut. The last thing I want to deal with in the middle of my day is tummy trouble. Which is why I always keep a fully stocked first aid kit in my car. Whether I am sitting in a meeting, traveling with my family or enjoying a sporting event – I know that I have what I need right in my car.
The first aid box that I keep in my car is pretty straightforward and contains the items I always seem to need when I’m away from home. My kit is packed with adhesive bandages, antibacterial spray, cleansing wipes, ibuprofen and NEW Pepto Diarrhea Liquicaps. Having the ability to quickly address impending diarrhea is pretty important to me. The new Pepto liquicaps are very convenient for stowing away in my first aid kit or my pocketbook. Pepto quickly coats my stomach, kills bacteria to relieve diarrhea and saves me from an embarrassing situation!
