How Much Can You Save? $200 or more per month

Making It Work:

Simple changes in how you shop for and use over the counter medications can have a big impact on your budget. These tips will help you stay healthy and save money at the same time.

Consider these tips for changing your medication habits:

1. Evaluate your over the counter medication habits.

Do you pick up extra cough drops or cough syrup each time you shop? Do you have more medications than you can use?

  • Your shopping habits may be causing you to waste money on over-the-counter medications. These medications have expiration dates, so stocking up on them could be counter-productive.
  • It may be tempting to have multiple health items for bug bites, upset stomachs, or other issues. However, ten different cough syrups may not be necessary if you’re sick because many of them have similar ingredients.

2. Use coupons and discounts.

Save money on over the counter medications by using coupons and discount codes. Unless it’s an emergency, avoid paying full price.

3. Check reliable online retailers.

Multiple online retailers sell over-the-counter medications, and you can save a significant amount of money. Seek reliable stores that have guarantees and verified sources for their medications.

4. Switch to generic versions.

Generic versions of over the counter medications are safe and cost less money.

Change your over-the-counter medication habits and save money.

These steps are easy to follow and will contribute to a frugal, healthy lifestyle.
