When I am feeling under the weather with a cold or something upper-respiratory, I must have something warm to consume, because 9 times out of 10, I have a sore, itchy throat, and a runny nose. Since I do not like tea whatsoever, hot chocolate is my hot beverage of choice!
It’s soothing, it’s creamy, and this year, I added a minty twist to it!
And, if you have some empty plastic canisters and washy tape hanging around, turn it into a Mint Hot Chocolate Mix gift for a friend or loved one who also shares their hot chocolate excitement! I’ll give you the recipe if you keep scrolling down. It’s easy peasy!
But first, I want to talk to you about this Winter Collection of Kleenex from Sam’s Club. It is awesome! Just this one package will keep me stocked up during cold and flu season. I love how I can purchase it all together in one convenient pack. I have found that as I get older, I have become a woman of convenience. If I can stock up on necessities in the shortest amount of time possible, then so be it. This mama is busy!
Kleenex is my favorite and trusted brand of tissues. It’s the only kind of tissues I buy, and I like that I can keep them on hand at all times. You just never know when you’ll need one! There are many reasons why it’s great to have a Sam’s Club membership, and this is one of them! There are so many great buys, and that’s why I have had a membership for many years. If you don’t have one, I highly suggest you do. They offer Club Pickup an have great deals on trusted brands. Get over there and stock up soon!
