Dr Oz Ultimate Shopping Cheat Sheet
Now that you have made your Dr Oz Ultimate Shopping List for all of your daily needs from the grocery store to the health food store as well as the drugstore and big box or warehouse club, you have the perfect cheat sheet to shop for your family while saving a whole lot of money.
Dr Oz: Dollar Store Lifesavers
Doctor Oz has just one more stop for you to make while you are out shopping with his Ultimate Shopping List. The place he is sending you may surprise you, but Dr. Phillip Blanc has helped him create a list of items that only cost $1 and yes, they are found at the Dollar Store. Dr. Blanc works in the emergency room of Mount Sinai Medical Center and he says that people often come to the ER for things that are preventable, but they don’t always realize that so they spend a lot of unnecessary time and money at the hospital.
Dr Oz: Dollar Store First Aid & Anti-Slip Mat
First Aid Kit – Dr. Blanc says this simple, $1 purchase has everything you need for basic first aid needs that could be taken care of at home and could actually save you from coming into the ER. He says they are so cheap, you may as well have one in the car, at home, and at work.
Anti-Slip Mat – Dr. Phillip Blanc says there over 9 million visits to the ER every year due to unintentional falls. He recommends putting anti-slip mats in places in your home where the floor often gets wet, like the bathroom and kitchen.
Dr Oz: Clothespins for Nosebleed & Pill Holder
Electric Socket Covers – Again, these only cost $1 and Dr. Blanc says they are very important especially if you have little ones that are apt to try and put their little fingers (or other things) into electric sockets.
7 Day Pill Holder – Dr. Blanc says this is another great $1 purchase, especially for people who have to take several pills throughout the week. He shares that patients sometimes end up in the ER from an accidental pill overdose that could have been prevented had they been using a pill holder.
Clothespins – Dr. Phillip Blanc says this might be his favorite $1 lifesaver that he found at the dollar store. He explains that when someone comes into the ER with a nose bleed the first thing they do is try to pinch off the bleeding, so if you have clothespins at home you can try the same thing and place one on the end of the nose. He does advise that if you can’t stop the bleeding and it lasts more than 10 minutes, then by all means go to the ER.
Dr Oz: Red Laser Vs Coupon Sherpa Shopping Apps
Now that you have Dr. Oz’s Ultimate Shopping List, it is time to go shopping. To prepare you, he has the best free apps and websites to get you the best deals every time you shop with his cheat sheet.
