    It is going great!  It is tough at times because it takes a little more time with a busy schedule. I am learning a lot and hope to pass it on to others. I did ask the pharmacist to please shred  all the paper instructions and gave her back the plastic bag it came in. I walked out with just the bottle and the pharmacist was a little confused🤔.

    I started researching other options for plastic sandwich bags.  I found some at Target called Lunchskins and used them today.  They are really great and completely sealed.  here is the link to their website.    https://www.lunchskins.com/   Now I feel I need to relplace the bigger bags also.

      Thanks! My hubby likes to use sandwich bags to keep the condiments off his hands. You gave me a great idea for a present for him!
