Today's Tightwad Tip: Save yourself a ton of money on children's advil!! Once your kids are old enough to swallow a pill (at about age 5 or 6 for mine), one regular ibuprofen tablet at 200 mg is equivalent to 2 teaspoons of ibuprofen liquid suspension or 2 chewable tablets.
Cost for one dose of generic ibuprofen suspension from an 8 oz bottle: .33 per dose.
Cost for one dose of generic ibuprofen from a 750 count bottle: .008 per dose.
I dunno about you, but with five kids, for a while there I wished they marketed ibuprofen suspension in 55 gallon drums. . . .
