Saving Money on Bandages

April 19, 2006

Keep Kids From Using Too Many BandagesThis tip may only work for families with boys. There may be a way to adapt it to girls but, as a mother of five boys ranging in age from 10 to 30, I can only attest to its effectiveness with the male species. Any parent can probably relate to the bandaid dilemma. Kids seem to think they need a bandaid for every bump, bruise, scrape or whatever they receive. This can cause a shortage of bandaids when one is really needed.


I solved this problem with my male children one day when I received that troubling phone call at work that I needed to stop at the store and buy bandaids. Looking at my choices (always looking for the best deal), I came across some "Hello, Kitty" bandaids. Knowing that my manly children would only wear those if the need was REALLY there, I bought those and it worked! Now, no more careless and extravagant uses of the bandaids. Sometimes, it's hard to get them to wear them even if I think they need to, but it has worked out really well for me. I don't know what parents of girls could do to make it work for them but it sure works for me!

My kids go through so many bandaids! It will end up being costly if I was to purchase the cute kid character bandaids they prefer versus using regular bandaids.
