Remember to come to the Stockpile Swap tomorrow!

stockpileswap2

Tomorrow 7/12/14, be sure to come on out and join the Stockpile Swap with Mashup Mom and deranged.me! We’ll be at the Lisle Public Library, IL on Saturday July 12 2014 from 1:00-3:00 PM. Stop on in any time — all are welcome, and no registration is required.

Bring your unneeded stockpile items to share, and bring home new stockpile items from others. Did you end up with extra probiotics, but need low-dose aspirin? Do you have a glut of baby food, but need pet food? Do you have too much peanut butter, but need some soup? Bring your extras, and benefit from others’ extras!

Very simple rules

  • This is a free for all — items will be set out for anyone to take.
  • Please bring something if you’re planning to take something.
  • Be considerate, so that everyone gets a chance to leave with something new.
  • If you have a lot of stockpile items, feel free to leave them in your car, bring in representative samples, and talk with others about what you have to swap — don’t hurt yourself, lol.
  • No selling. No money can change hands at this event; bring items with the understanding that you’re giving them away to others.

If you’re looking for something in particular (baby items, cereal, dog food, what have you) feel free to comment here or on the Coupon Trading Facebook group. If you have extras of something in particular, feel free comment with what you might be bringing to share. Swap at your own risk; neither the library, Mashup Mom, nor deranged.me can be liable for how stockpile items have been stored, expiration dates, etc.

Any leftover stockpile items at the end of the event will be donated to the Lisle Township Food Pantry, which serves residents of Lisle and unincorporated parts of Lisle, Naperville and Woodridge.

In-club screenings available to members and open to the public

Saturday, June 14 from 11 a.m. to 3 p.m.

BENTONVILLE, ARK., (June 2, 2014) – June is a time when we celebrate the men in our lives with Father’s Day. June is also Men’s Health Month, offering families an important opportunity to help a man they love take charge of his health. According to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, heart disease, stroke, cancer and chronic lower respiratory disease are among the top health risks for adult males in the U.S.; however, a few simple lifestyle changes can help prevent these serious health issues.1 Sam’s Club is dedicating its free health screening event on Saturday, June 14 from 11 a.m. to 3 p.m. to helping more men learn about risk factors and how to stay healthy.

The screenings are free and available to the public at all Sam’s Club locations with a pharmacy (590 locations). The free health screening event features tests valued at up to $150, including2:

  • PSA (prostate-specific antigen) test for men 40 and over – This test is used to screen men for prostate cancer by checking the blood level of PSA, a protein produced by the prostate gland
  • Blood pressure
  • BMI (body mass index)
  • Total cholesterol
  • Glucose
  • HDL (good cholesterol)
  • Risk Ratio
  • Vision Screenings/Testing

“Men’s Health Month is a great reminder of the unique health risks men face,” said Jill Turner-Mitchael, senior vice president, Sam’s Club Health and Wellness. “The free health screenings at Sam’s Club make it easy for men and their families to be proactive in learning about their health. It’s a tool everyone should take advantage of as a way to gather information that can benefit them for years to come.”

In addition to monthly health screenings, Sam’s Club pharmacies provide savings and preventive care to each community it serves, such as year-round immunizations for adults ages 18 and above. Licensed pharmacists can administer walk-in flu shots and nine other important immunizations recommended to help protect against serious diseases like pneumonia, shingles and whooping cough. Sam’s Club also offers $4/$10 generic prescription prices to the public, and Sam’s Plus and Sam’s Business members receive an additional 8 percent savings on name-brand prescriptions, 40 percent savings on generics not part of the $4/$10 generic prescription program, and access to more savings through the Extra Value Drug Program, featuring 10 to 30 percent savings on select name-brand and generic prescriptions.
