Do you ever fall in love with a product so much that you refuse to leave the house without it? Well, that’s me and Contigo. I bet we have gone through hundreds of water bottles and travel mugs over the years because they leak, don’t keep things warm (or cold), and are cheaply made. I absolutely believe you get what you pay for in this instance.
Let me tell you why I said yes to reviewing Contigo products. 1) Toby is a water hog. He has to have a water bottle on the bike, in his truck, at the track, in the weight room, and while he’s watching TV. 2) Truett thinks he has to do everything Toby does so he also has to have a water bottle at all times. 3) Noe drinks coffee every single morning and always takes a cup to go. There are lots of bumps on the ranch roads so a good travel mug is in order. 4) I’m trying to drink more water and find that if something has a straw, I get more in. 4) It takes 30 minutes to get to town so even if we’re not ‘traveling’, we’re still traveling. Someone always gets thirsty and we love to take water bottles with us while on-the-go.
During the school year, if you notice your child getting a little sluggish, chances are they’re dehydrated. Think about how much they drink during the school day as opposed to be home all day. Probably not near as much as they need. Since Truett’s bus ride was almost 25 minutes long, I started sending a water bottle with him on the bus. By the time he got to school, he already drank it and was hydrated for the morning. Hydration is so important! I was looking at this infographic and was shocked that only 5% choose water for on-the-go. That’s crazy to me! Honestly, I don’t want Truett picking up my bad soda habit so I’m trying so hard to encourage water every chance I can.
We are traveling to Houston in a few days and will be using Contigo reusable bottles to hydrate us all the way. I plan to follow up with you guys on our exact opinions of these but so far, they have been AWESOME! And the AUTOSPOUT® is fabulous! Today, I’m giving you the chance to win 5 Contigo Products!
