This post brought to you by Walgreens. All opinions are 100% mine.
Obviously, my blog is called Frugal But Not Cheap. I will not spend money when it's not necessary (or don't REALLY want it), but I also have to make sure I'm always feeling great. If I have the sniffles, I'm not going to sit at home waiting to feel better, I'm going to do something about it. I also hate the feeling of spending more than I need to on top of feeling icky. That's why I love Walgreens. There's one right around the corner, a couple blocks away from where I live.
Now, I could go and spend $10-12+ on Sudafed or Nyquil, but why do that when Walgreens has Walgreens Brand Health & Wellness Products? They have them at practically half the price, most with the same exact ingredients.
If you live in Austin, you know how bad allergies can get. Well, I remember a recent need for some serious allergy meds, which led me to purchasing Walgreens Wal-Phed PE Sinus & Allergy Tablets. Remember how I said Sudafed can be around $10-12? Well the Walgreens brand is only $4.99. That is some serious savings, which you can use toward some Kleenex, chicken soup, and a nice Cosmo to make your sick day a little better.
Here are some more awesome things to note about Walgreens:
Purchase of every Walgreens Brand Health & Wellness Product supports bringing preventive wellness services to local communities through the Walgreens Way to Well Fund™. They are going to donate up to $3 million annually to the Walgreens Way to Well Fund™. I find this to be pretty amazing since we all know the world desperately needs more funding for health care. For details, visit walgreens.com/waytowell.
My whole point is, if you're going to buy some meds, why pay more for the exact same thing with a pretty label? Check out Walgreens Brand Health & Wellness Products since A. you'll spend less money and B. you are helping a very worthy cause.
One more thing! Many bloggers are giving away some Walgreens Gift Cards here: giveaways!
