I use all the time for everything.  Seriously.  Everything.  I buy food, clothing, electronics, cleaning supplies, books, gifts…everything from them.  It saves me an amazing amount of time being able to quickly find what I need, press a few buttons and get those items going where they’re needed.  A perfect example happened just today.  My daughter has been home from college for Fall break but headed back to school today.  She took toilet paper, paper towels, food and just as she was leaving she asked if she could take some K-cups for her Keurig.  Yes.  Absolutely.  Just not too-too-too many.  I could have a coffee emergency.  Instead, I had her just take a few and I sent her two more boxes from Amazon and finished shopping before she even pulled out of the driveway.  She’ll have them by Friday and I still have some on hand for myself.  College students.  LOL!

Honestly, I don’t mind sending her things at all.  I really enjoy it.  Plus, I know she needs things to make her dorm room feel more like home.  (That’s her tiny dorm from Freshman year.  It’s was so bare before she and her roommate moved in.)  She goes to school in a different state and it’s a long drive to see her.  Shipping things to her from Amazon is an easy way for me to do something for her, whether it’s a necessity or just a nicety.  #AmazonHasIt

She’s worked hard in school and done well.  I’m really proud of her and happy for her.  So, when she started talking about how much she and her roommate use the Brita Water Pitcher we bought during the summer and how she’d been thinking about buying an additional one, I made a note to get her another one for Christmas.  It turns out that there’s a $2 off coupon for it right now too.  Easy!  Getting it.  She said that it makes such a difference to the way their water tastes that she pours it into their coffee maker, uses it to make ice cubes and even brushes her teeth using a glass of water from it.  I told you she loves it!

The Brita Pitcher 10 cup water filtration pitcher comes with 1 filter.  It reduces chlorine taste and odor, zinc taste, copper, mercury and cadmium, often found in tap water.  1 filter can replace 300 standard 16.9 ounce water bottles!  It’s a BPA-free pitcher with easy-fill lid and comfort grip handle.  The electronic indicator tracks when to change the water filter.  Now that she’s got a dorm room with a full kitchen, she really enjoys cooking.  She uses water from her Brita Pitcher in her cooking too!

Sometimes after studying, snacking and binge watching SVU there’s cleaning to be done.  At our house we’ve used  Clorox Disinfectant Wipes for years and years, so that’s what my daughter takes from our house to her dorm so she can clean.  LOL!  When she runs out, that’s what we send her too.

Clorox Disinfectant Wipes new and improved packaging contains a value pack of three 75 count canisters of disinfecting wipes in 2 scents: 2 Citrus Blend, 1 Fresh Scent.  It kills 99.9% of viruses and bacteria, including Human Coronavirus and Influenza A2 Virus and it also kills cold and flu viruses, E. Coli, Salmonella, Staph, and Strep.  The clear-drying formula works on a variety of surfaces.  Plus, the powerful cleaning technology fights kitchen grease and soap scum and the package is easy-to-open!

Having a hard time coming up with care package ideas?  Try to cover some basic needs first, food and warmth.  So add either some healthy foods, junk food or a mix of them.  Then throw in a blanket, socks, a shirt…something to comfort or warm.  Next, add in things that run out or wear out like earbuds, chewing gum, school supplies and cleaning supplies.  Finally, finish with something fun like a comedy DVD or something useful and unexpected like a Brita water pitcher.  I found all of these things at Amazon!  Woo hoo!  The #AmazonWishList feature allows me to keep a running list of things my college student needs and I can send them to her without ever entering a store!
