Another Health Care Fiasco

This is a Sponsored post written by me on behalf of Walgreens for SocialSpark. All opinions are 100% mine.

I get my prescriptions from Walgreen's... Do you??
Over the last year Walgreens has been trying to renew a contract with Express Scripts as their pharmacy provider network.  Unfortunately both parties could not agree to a contract so Walgreens and Express Script no longer have a partnership as of January 1, 2012.  Express Scripts is essentially just the middle man yet many people will be affected. 
Many patients have had to find a pharmacy in-network so a big disruption in services has occurred to many individuals.  WHAT A HEAD ACHE.  Many patients are angry since some will have to travel farther to pick up their medications or some are unhappy to have to search for a new pharmacy.  
Does this affect you? 
Many people have  gone to the same pharmacy to see the same pharmacist for years and have a great relationship, who would want to change that.   Walgreens announced a comprehensive national effort to make this transition as smooth as possible and hopes to keep all patients business.  The only people impacted are people who's insurance plans are managed by Express Scripts and you can ask your pharmacist if that is you or check the back of your prescription card and if it say's "Express Scripts" you are most likely affected. 
What is Walgreen's offering now??
In order to minimize the confusion and upsetting people Walgreens is offering a special discount on annual memberships for its Walgreens Prescription Savings Club.  During January an individual will only pay $5 ($15 savings), a family membership is $10 ($25 savings)and you will receive savings on more than 8000 brand name and all generic medications.
You can support Walgreen's and stay up to date with them by following on twitter: Walgreens on Twitter or liking them on Facebook: Walgreens on Facebook.  
So go check look at your insurance card.  If you are affected go and sign up for the prescription savings club.  :)

Toddler Rainbow Craft for St. Patricks Day

St. Patrick's day is March 17th so its approaching quickly.  I have a few ideas on art and food projects that i want to do with the kiddos.  Hopefully I will have enough time to complete them and share them with you.   This was a super easy one for those little hands.  I cut the stripes of colored paper but if you are working with a preschooler or school aged child then they can practice cutting.  The two toddler boys here only had to glue the pieces on their piece of paper.  EASY, but they enjoyed it!  :)  It sure has brightened my kitchen with them hanging on the fridge!  :)   I also talked more about the Promise God gave us with the rainbow since I know that history a whole lot better then the history of the Irish Holiday!  

Harlem Globetrotters- A night of Fun! Save 20%

  If you only came here for the discount code then there ya go!  Save 20% at checkout with the code: USFAM!   I will admit that prices seem very costly in my opinion so hopefully this 20% off will really help you.   I was blessed to be able to promote this discount and post about my experience to get free tickets for my family.   I am not sure our budget would be able to afford the tickets... family of four and ticket prices we got were over a $100 each ticket... so it can make for a pricey night.   Then add in if you get snacks, a ball, or a jersey you could spend a hefty paycheck in one evening of fun.    With that said, my family did have a good time.   We saw good talent, we had lots of laughs, we cheered, and we enjoyed watching with each other.   Some would say the Harlem Globetrotters are like the equivalent of WWE but with basketball.   There is a storyline within the game, which helps get the crowd going and cheering.   My 11 year old had the most fun!   He was standing up and
