I debated whether to buy a prepackaged kit or put some together myself. Based on what we need, I decided to go with a prepackaged kit for our car, and a duplicate kit for our home plus a few extra things such as a full tube of Neosporin.
In the future, I’ll probably be able to buy items a la carte when I need to restock the kits, but for now I need too many different types of supplies. It’s cheaper for me to go this route.
To save money, I went to Ebates* and typed in Drugstore.com. I saw that I’ll get 6 percent of my purchase price back with my next Ebates check. Plus, I was able to click a $5 off $30 coupon on Ebates since I’m a first-time customer with Drugstore.com. I’ll get free shipping, and since I’m purchasing FSA-eligible items, I used my handy FSA debit card to pay for these supplies with pre-tax dollars.
I chose a kit for $12.92. After comparing its contents with several other kits, I decided this one was the lowest-costing option that also contained what we might need.
What’s in your first-aid kit? Did you buy a prepared kit, or did you do it yourself? Do you have non-standard items with your kit?
