Save on Time and Healthcare Costs

When it comes to healthcare, I admit, I have not invested the time into figuring it all out. I just know that sniffles, bumps, and scratchy throats always seem to arrive when I am at maximum freak-show capacity.

Busy Mom #Healthcareclinic #CollectiveBias

While juggling a billion things, I would really like to ignore the fact that it appears my offspring might be getting pink eye. Seriously? No one has time for that.

Or, just when I think my day is going to be productive—the first one in weeks despite my best planning—the school nurse calls. “Is this Adam’s mom?” Yeah, that’s me… which leads to a day spent getting x-rays.

So, as a single mom working and going to school full time, life is a circus. Managing schedules, assignments, jobs, finances, and listless other responsibilities, I am constantly searching for shortcuts.

Moms wear many hats

When an unplanned ailment strikes a doctor’s appointment is not always necessary—or feasible. So, the best shortcut to save on time and healthcare costs is to take full advantage of your local Walgreens #HealthcareClinic. #CollectiveBias

By utilizing this wonderful and convenient service, I save a ton of time and money. Need flu shots but don’t want to wait weeks to see your family doctor and then spend hours in the waiting room? Simply swing by your Walgreens Healthcare Clinic.

I was shocked to see how many services they offer. Adam needed a sports physical on file for football and we were in and out in under half an hour! Plus, they accept our insurance! (And, if they didn’t, they have a “menu” of reasonable prices for services offered…no surprises!)

With a pharmacy right there, if a prescription is needed, it literally couldn’t get any better to save on time and money.

Other ways to Save

Stay healthy! An ounce of prevention is equal to a pound of cure…

I find that preparing and portioning out all my meals for the week helps me stay on track and save a ton of time. Pair that with keeping up to date on all our shots, and we have never been healthier!

Not only do I avoid buying pricey foods on the go, I can focus on all my homework and assignments on my breaks between classes. Typically these breaks were spent finding something to eat, but now I can utilize that time way more efficiently!

Eat right and stay healthy

    All great advice for all of us either single or married working mothers. We do have to try to stay healthy as much as we can.

  22. Easy-access and prevention! Those two seem to be the best steps to take for keeping on schedule and keeping healthy! I would definitely use Wal-Greens clinic for vaccinations and flu shots, as well as other things like minor illness and physicals. No need to schedule for a doctor’s visit, which usually means you have to wait unless it’s an emergency. When you wear so many hats, it’s helpful to be aware of where to prioritize your time! Staying healthy is always a plus!
