Are you prepared for Cold and Flu Season ?

This is a sponsored post about cold and flu season preparation was written by me on behalf of Chloraseptic® for IZEA. All opinions are 100% mine.

I am not sure if it is the changing of warm to cold weather every third day or the hustle and bustle of the holiday season but I have 2 sick kids this week. There is nothing more stressful than wanting the kids out of the house and in school before they are home for two weeks. SO are you prepared for cold and flu season at your house? We want to share a few must haves we have around the house and in our bathroom cabinets so we can take quick action against these germs.
