Thrifty Tips for February 28, 2013
SAVING MONEY ON MEDICAL
Prices for medical services can often make people skip getting care altogether, but you shouldn't skip care. There are ways to save. It just takes some looking around.
If prescriptions are causing you difficulty, check out the website NeedyMeds.org. NeedyMeds is a non profit group that can help individuals with assistance in the forms of grand and vouchers to help them get the prescriptions they need. Don't forget to also speak with your physicians. They may have samples on hand to give you or can look into several options of medications.
Save money on lab screenings with HealthWaves. HealthWaves phlebotomists travel to grocery stores and other locations throughout Arizona in order to provide you with money saving lab work. You can get HDL and Total Cholesterol, SMAC Chem panels, Thyroid testing and more. You can see the entire list of lab work at this link.
FREE FUN FOR THE KIDS
Sign the kids up for Lowe's Build and Grow Clinics. Saturday, March 9th they can make a monster truck. Check out the schedule for the Lowe's near you to sign up today.
March Lego build. The first Tuesday of the month is the day when you can take the kids for a free Lego build. There aren't a lot of Lego stores in Arizona (one at the Chandler Fashion Center and the other at the Arrowhead Town Center in Glendale), but the ones that are around do these builds. Tuesday, March 5th the kids can build a sea turtle that is way cute!
SAVE MONEY AND MAKE YOUR OWN
Bleach Pen! Gel bleach pens can be expensive, but they sure come in handy in a pinch. One Good Thing By Jillee shares a super easy bleach pen recipe that is well worth trying, and you probably have most of the items on hand in the home. You will use a squeeze bottle for this, and you will definitely want to label it and keep it out of reach of children, but follow this link to check it out.
