As I mentioned in a previous post, I'm very serious about making sure that my family takes their vitamins! It can be impossible to ensure that your body is getting all the necessary vitamins from diet alone - so, vitamins are on our household staples checklist.

I always spend time finding the best deal on vitamins.  BOGO vitamin deals always catch my attention - quickly.  Currently, all Walgreens brand vitamins (and supplements) are buy one get one free - so we've stocked up! The kids were ecstatic last month to get the gummy vitamins Walgreens offers.  I've also made sure that we have plenty of Vitamin C as well multivitamins for Dan and myself.

When shopping for vitamins, you might find it useful to know that you can help a child in need with every vitamins or supplements purchase at Walgreens. Millions of children around the world are suffering from ‘hidden hunger’, a lack of micronutrients that can lead to disease and even death. In fact, 45% of all childhood deaths are attributable to under-nutrition. Walgreens is giving a portion of all vitamin retail sales to Vitamin Angels to help 100 million children in the U.S. and abroad get the vitamins they need to live well.

I love that our purchase helped to support Vitamin Angels.  Walgreens is partnering with Vitamin Angels - which means that with every purchase of vitamins at Walgreens, Walgreens will make a donation to Vitamin Angels! They'll make this donation regardless which brand of vitamin you purchase!

By 2017, Walgreens and Vitamin Angels aim to reach 100 million children and mothers in over 40 countries worldwide. Specifically, children under five, pregnant women and new mothers gain access to life changing vitamins and minerals.
