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.  :)

Knot Genie Review and Giveaway

If you have a little girl and have not heard of the Knot Genie then you need to watch the following video:   "The Knot Genie™ and Teeny Genie™ Detangling Brushes were created for every mom that has endured the foot stomping and screaming matches that come with brushing their child's hair. With the Knot Genie, even the curliest, most knotted up hair practically slips through the unique bristle configuration – gently and painlessly. Try the Knot Genie on your kids (or on yourself) – you'll be amazed by the ease of brushing, as well as how it virtually stops breakage and split ends. You've wished for hair brushing standoffs to end. Wish granted." My Review:  Thanks to the Knot Genie for sending me the product to conduct my review.  I was not paid for this review and all opinions expressed are 100% mine.  I know I have grown so tired of my daughter coming to tears every morning when we did her hair. I was becoming to think she was the most

Dry Idea: Deodorant Review and Giveaway

I know most of you know I was at kids camp last week and I think I mentioned the humidity and heat that we had that week!  I was daring as I only brought my new Dry Idea  deodorant  that I had never used prior.  I had no idea if it was going to keep me from smelling like B.O or if I was going to have sweaty pits. So how did the Dry Idea hold up to the hot and humid days at kids camp???  Arms raised high during worship in the morning and in the evening!  :)  I was dry and I did not stink!  :) WOOT WOOT!  I had the unscented brand and I usually do prefer a pretty scent but it worked and they do have scents which include powder fresh and cotton dry that I might try in the future.  :) The Dry Idea Roll-On is 24 hour protection, fast drying MicroCotton Formula, hypo allergenic, and contains Vitamin E.  :) Don't like roll on's??  They do offer Clear Gel and an Invisible Solid.  :) Dry Idea provided a free sample of their Advanced Dry roll-On so I could review them.  However,
