Keep all your food and gas receipts, they add up much more than what you think they would. Also the mileage you travel each time you go for a medical visit of any kind is deductible. We traveled 40 miles one way to the local cancer center where we live, and during those 6 months when he was getting chemo, we kept a tally of the mileage that year for taxes and I couldn't believe the difference it made. Also you probable know that your medical premiums are deductible along with out of pocked expenses.

It's up to 10% this year, but I've got that blown away by 4 or 5x. Big box of receipts and other documentation on top of the fridge waiting to get sorted out. My accountant told me that the current mileage allowance is 19 cents per mile. Since I drove to NYC and back at least once a month last year (and a lot more, actually), my mileage deduction is more than $1,200 alone.
