Got a low FSA balance?
These small FSA eligible products from FSAstore.com make a big impact!
For many flexible spending account (FSA) holders, December 31st marks the end of their FSA year, and any funds that are left unspent will be forfeited. While some account holders may be able to take advantage of the FSA Grace Period until March 15 or others have a Carryover, many more will need to spend down their accounts quickly in advance of the deadline.
At FSAstore.com, we have the web's largest selection of FSA eligible products, so it's easy to liquidate your account balance with items to support your family's continued good health and wellness.
Here are a few to keep in mind as December 31 approaches and you need to deplete your FSA balance:
1) Pocket First Aid Kit
This is a great option for families with small children, as these kits can fit in a back pocket, purse or backpack and give parents an easy way to handle scratches, blisters and cuts on the go. There's even space for an emergency contact card so you can keep vital health information on-hand in the event of a major emergency.

2) SPF Lip Balm
In the depths of winter, dry air can wreak havoc on your lips and leave them dry, chapped and uncomfortable for days on end. Daily use of lip balm can alleviate this condition, but give yourself an extra layer of protection against UVA and UVB radiation from the sun with an SPF lip balm.
3) Nose Wipes
There's nothing worse than suffering through the coughing, sneezing and stuffy noses of common cold and allergies only to experience discomfort from abrasive, dry tissues. Nose wipes are great to have around the house to provide cooling relief that won't irritate your nose and can perform a variety of tasks year-round.

4) Pain Relief
Over-the-counter (OTC) pain relievers can handle everyday headaches, muscle and joint pains, as well as acting as fever reducers, anti-inflammatories and much more. If you're running low on these at home, check out hot and cold packs, and even this fun one for the kids at home!

5) Cushioned Insoles
If you're wearing a pair of uncomfortable shoes, each step you take will put undue stress on the arch and heel, which could lead to more advanced foot pain issues over time. Cushioned inserts will dramatically improve the support of dress, work and casual shoes to absorb shock and relieve foot pain.
