If you or someone in your family has to take regular medications, you probably just go to the closest pharmacy and just pay the price they tell you, right?  Did you know that you don’t have to do pay that amount.  There really is a way to shop around to make sure you get the lowest price on the medications you need to buy.

The app to use to help you find these prices is LowestMed.  No more just handing over your insurance card and blindly paying what they tell you to.  This app is the way to truly find the best price on the prescriptions you need.  It truly takes the guess work out of trying to find the lowest prices.

If you are a mom, you are probably as busy as I am.  Whether you or your kids are on a current subscription or not, you can use this site to find out the lowest prices.  What I love most of all is that they have an app  you can use too!  That way, it is handy and with you all of the time!!  You can use it to refill those asthma meds or even the antibiotic for your child’s most recent ear infection, rash …. or any meds that you may need to have filled!  It is right there, at your finger tips, so you have no surprises when you step up to the register.

The way it works is really simple.  Download the free app (yes it is totally free) or just visit their website.    Type in the medication you need. I love that as you type, it finds those that fit what you are looking for (so you don’t have to worry about a typo and finding the wrong medication).

I actually checked out a medication I have to take daily.  The differences were AMAZING.  The lowest price was just $4 and it went as high as $21.01.  That is a HUGE difference…and results in my paying too much for my medications than I should!

Once you see the deal you want to get at the store, just click on the GET DISCOUNT button.  Print out the the discount to show at the register (or just show the details on your phone) and you should pay that amount – and no more!

You can use the app and discount many times over and over.  It doesn’t matter what type of insurance you have, you should be able to use the app to ensure you pay the lowest amount out of your pocket…..every single time!!

Check out these testimonials:

“Amy is a savvy mother of 3 healthy children, but they occasional get ear infections resulting in doctor office visits and trips to the pharmacy. Even though she has good insurance, she uses her LowestMed app to save money. When her 7-year-old daughter, Ella, had another bout with an ear infection, Amy wrote, “More ear infections! LowestMed has now saved me $60 this month. Thank you!”


“Jennie, a busy mother of 5 children, remembered to use LowestMed when her 9-year-old son, Cayden, came down with strep throat. Even though she has great insurance, she saved $16 on that prescription. She said, “Thankfully we don’t use lots of medications, but it’s good to know we can get a good deal when needed. Even the doctor was surprised and had no idea that prices are different at various pharmacies.”

Here’s a quote from the app’s creator, Brad Bangerter.

“Most people think the only way to buy prescriptions is with an insurance card. People need to understand they have a choice and often can find lower prices outside health insurance,” said Brad Bangerter, LowestMed’s creator.  Bangerter advises savvy moms to quit giving their kids’ allowance to pharmacies by paying too much for prescriptions.

Remember you have an option! Don’t just blindly present your insurance card expecting to get the best price. Compare LowestMed’s prices to your insurance costs. The results may surprise you!!!

Homemade Apple Jam

This homemade apple jam recipe is the simplest recipe.....and the taste?! O.M.G. Find out how to turn some simple apples into your favorite way to top your morning toast!


When I think fall, one food that comes to mind is apples.  Apple cider, apple butter, apple pie…..all things apple.  One thing you may love and think is difficult to make is apple jam.  You might be surprised at just how easily you can make this yourself (without all of the preservatives and additives you find in the store bought items).

Homemade Apple Jam
Recipe type: Breakfast
Cook time: 
Total time: 
  • 6 large crisp apples
  • 2 cups of apple cider
  • 1 Box of  Pectrin
  • 1 cup of sugar
  • 3 tbs of cinnamon
  • 4 8oz mason jars or 8 4oz jars
  1. Peel and finely chop apples.  Place them into a large sauce pan place apples. Add 1 cup of sugar and apple cider. Over a medium heat let fruit cook for about 10-15 minutes.
  2. Once fruit comes to a boil add one package of fruit pectin. Stir fruit so it does not stick. Continue cooking over a medium heat until sauce becomes thick.
  3. Use a ladle and put into the mason jars.  Make sure they are tight and push down the lid.  Put in the fridge and allow to cool 1 - 2 hours before eating.  Then spread on your toast and enjoy!
If you do not like chunks in your jam, you may want to use a potato masher, immersion blender or food processor to remove large pieces prior to placing into jars.
