Epipen/Medicine Bag Review & Giveaway


In honor of Allergy Awareness week, I want to share with you what we use for my daughter’s Epipen and medications.  We purchased it through FARE (Food Allergy Research & Education).  If you have never checked out their site, it is full of  great allergy info!  The bag is small enough it fits in a purse or diaper bag, or can be hooked on a belt loop.  It fits EVERYTHING we need to keep my daughter safe, including two Epipens, a bottle of Benadryl, an inhaler, AND her allergyactionform (gread downloadable free form) plus we keep a DVD in there on how to use an Epipen.  We keep that in there in case someone does not know how to use an Epipen or needs a refresher course.

This is the best bag, and is the perfect size, AND it’s only $6 through FARE (plus shipping $4.50 for two bags)!  We keep one bag for when Bean goes to a friend’s house, sitter, or if we go on a family outing.  We have another that Bean takes to school to keep in the nurse’s office.  The one for school we wrote her name and “SEVERE PEANUT ALLERGY & ASTHMA” on the front.  Her school nurse says she loves that if she ever needs anything for Bean, all she has to do is quickly get out her bag.  We have had both bags for 5 years now.  It has been all over the place and they are still is in excellent shape.

**Disclaimer: I was in no way compensated or given anything free in order to do this review.  I just think it’s such a great product that I wanted to share it with you.  FARE is sending out a free bag to one winner though for the giveaway.  All opinions are my own and were not influenced in any way.
