Just this morning I saw a cute picture from my college alma mater, with the resident assistants cheering and holding banners, getting ready to welcome the new students to campus today. I have very vivid memories of my own move-in day (how on earth was that 17 years ago?! ACK!!!!).
I also remember taking my very first trip to a store to stock up on various supplies for my dorm room (paper towels, razors, snacks, napkins, etc.). Let’s just say I was VERY bummed out at the register. I think I even had to put a few things back!
It turns out that this stuff costs money, friends. And college students are often a bit short on money.
If you know someone who is headed to college this fall, consider sending them a care package, along with a few shopping tips to help them save money easily this year.
For example, let them know that Dollar General often has great coupons right on their website that you can easily print, clip an take into the store.
I took advantage of a FANTASTIC sale on Schick products. Right now you can score a Buy 1 Get 1 Free on the following products:
– Schick Hydro® 5 Razor
– Schick® Xtreme 3® Ultimate Razor
– Schick® Quattro®
– Schick® Hydro Silk® Razor
– Schick® Slim Twin® Razor
By using my coupon, I got 10 blades for just $5.25! That will be enough to get a college student through at least a semester without having to buy razors. 🙂
While I was in the store, I grabbed some great brain food for homework sessions, and a treat or two! If I had received a care package like this when I was in college, I would have FLIPPED. OUT. I remember nuts being a total extravagance because they tend to be pricey! But they are SO good for giving your body the energy it needs to get through all that reading!
And once a student is in college and is responsible for their own toiletry purchases, they will truly appreciate the Schick razors, I assure you.
What items did you love getting in care packages while in college? Any items you wish you could magically get in an adult care package now (I wish those were a thing!)?
