Saving Money on Healthcare

As a diabetic and a person severely allergic to Tetanus, I needed a medical ID bracelet or necklace. However, even the cheapest ones are upward of $39.95 plus shipping. Ouch!

So, at my local department store, I stopped at a machine and spent $5.00 to have a literal dog tag engraved with "Diabetic" on the first line and "Tetanus Allergy" on the second line. With my own chain from home, I now can wear an alert that only cost me $5.00. It's really easy to do and fast, and saves 700% of the cost. Win Win for us frugal folks!

I am a nurse and I have one very simple way for everyone to save on their healthcare. Buy all your meds at Walmart or a pharmacy that offers the three months supply for $10.00.
