Back to school is here and it’s always a bitter-sweet moment for me. I have one son headed to the 4th grade and one starting his junior year at college (another who is grown and on his own!). I suddenly feel old, even if I am only 40 and while I’m sad they are headed back, I’m grateful for the lower grocery bill I’ll have! Can I get an AMEN?!! One thing I do love during this time of the year, is shopping! I’m super excited to have partnered with Procter & Gamble to bring you a few college essentials to get your college kid off to a clean start!
I remember when Toby first started college. It was all about making his dorm look cool but over the past two years, we’ve come to realize that toothpaste and detergent are way more important. No joke, y’all! So my number one tip is to stock up on the necessities! We are having to get a few more items this year since he’ll have his first apartment on campus but toothpaste, detergent, body care items…..those are the things he needs to keep on hand all the time. Just like most college students, he’s on a budget but thank goodness I raised a frugal kid! He knows how to get the most bang for his buck so when I told him about the deal at Bed Bath & Beyond, he jumped right on it. Here’s the deal! Y’all should totally take advantage of it! Purchase $40 of the participating P&G items at Bed Bath & Beyond and receive a $10 Bed Bath & Beyond gift card. (Offer is in-store only and runs from 8/1/16 to 8/31/16). SWEET, right?! If you’re gonna spend $40 bucks on items like that, why not shop at a place that gives you something back! He knows he’ll run out of one of those necessities and he’ll have a $10 to go grab some Tide Pods or Crest 3D White Arctic Fresh Toothpaste because it’s all about that smile and he’s got a great one, doesn’t he? :)
The Harmon section of Bed Bath & Beyond has all your back to college essentials like Tide, Crest, Old Spice, Secret, and even those handy dandy loofas and shower caddies. It makes it super easy to get all your shopping essentials done!
These are just 3 items Toby will be taking back to college! I’d say clean clothes and a clean mouth are a great start!
