A 2 sided tissue pouch perfect for cold and flu season. One side can hold a pack of tissues, the other side can hold a mini bottle of sanitizer and a lip gloss!
What have been the results of the challenge? Knock on wood, sickness has been very minimal in our home. Two minor head colds, myself included. I’d like to think it would have been worse if I hadn’t taken the time to regularly sanitize my hands. Especially since an awful stomach bug went through some of the families at church last month. Unfortunately, cold and flu season is still coming and our luck may change, but I’m hoping it will be a milder season because of the hand washing and hygiene habits that we’ve been working on as a family.
