I wonder how many band-aids a family of six goes through every year. I guess enough so that we are almost always out, and wide spread panic erupts when our supply gets dangerously low. These basic bandaids cover almost all of our family's needs. From cut fingers, blisters, warts and abrasions, band-aids have us covered. This particular brand won't take all your skin off when you have to remove it, and generally will not stick to itself when you are trying to apply one. I suggest having a box of these babies in the car, in the house and in your shed. You are always going to need them, and you might as well have an extra box around so that when accidents happen you are ready. The brand name bandaids are, of course, a little more expensive than the generic. This can be a problem when you have a ton of children and are going through a lot of band-aids. However, the brand itself is definitely worth the extra cost.
