Heading Back to College & a Giveaway!

My daughter Kristen is in her third year of college. Unlike many students, she didn’t stay in a dorm. She teamed up with three friends and got an apartment instead. Splitting rent and utilities four ways keeps it affordable and has allowed her to be out on her own without moving in and out of a dorm room each year.

When asked if we wanted to share with you how much she loves Brita® it was an absolute no-brainer. Her and all of her roommates already own the hard-sided Brita® water bottles available at Target, which are great for staying hydrated, even when using the water fountains and faucets at school. They simply fill the bottles and enjoy clean filtered water on the go!

It’s important for young adults to not only stay hydrated, but have energy to keep up with classes, work and play. Kristen is very outdoorsy and enjoys hiking. So she always has her Brita® water bottle with her. She was so excited to find out that she was going to buy a Brita® pitcher too!

Before classes start up in less than two weeks, she and her friends took off for an end of summer vacation in the Rocky Mountain National Forest in Colorado. They hiked for an incredible NINE HOURS yesterday! Thank goodness for their water bottles. Here are some gorgeous photos she shared with me just last night.

But before she left for her end of summer vacation, Kristen and I set off for Target to see what Brita® had to offer and to buy a few more things that she uses regularly.

We stocked up on cleaning items and personal hygiene products as they really seem to go through a lot of those. And while they actually eat really healthy, during the school year it can be tough to take the time to cook. Quick edibles like canned soup, ramen noodles and macaroni and cheese are a welcome convenience.

See everything we got in the above video! What would you buy? And what year of college is your child in?

    Good Luck, Mom! It will be 12 more years until my eldest goes off to college. I dread that day (but also will be beaming with pride). Hopefully, he won’t bust open the snack food at *every* meal, but those Cheezits are hard to resist.

    I would really like the water bottle. Its nice to have the filter. You can be on the go around campus and fill up with their water fountains and not have that nasty chlorine taste

  3. amanda naughton says

    I love the stuff you do and I too am a fan of Brita….tried another system but was not happy. Brita is the best.

  4. Lori Ha says

    Our son is a freshman in college this year and the pitcher or water bottle would be a great addition to his supplies.

  5. Susan says

    I would defintitely buy the Brita pitcher. I have had 3 kids in college, all of which have graduated now, & they all had to have a Brita pitcher. Thanks for the giveaway!

  6. Becka says

    My kids are no where near collage age, but my oldest son would love the water bottle. He’s in marching band. So where ever he goes he can have good tasting water. I would love the bottle myself. I am drinking more water these days to get myself into a more healthy state. This bottle would be great to help me with that. Thanks for the giveaway.

  7. Carol A says

    In this day and age a person doesn’t have a clue what is in their drinking water. I have looked at different water filters but have not been able to get one as they are quite pricey. I would love to be able to get a Brita filter system.

  8. Sandra BREYMANN says

    We would really like to get the pitcher and some of the water bottles!! The water here in Vegas is really bad and I just hate buying the water in the plastic bottles, bad for the environment..These Togo water bottles would be great!!

  9. Debbie says

    Both my kids are out of school now, but I would love the water bottle so I could have fresh filtered water all the time. I’m trying to drink more water & be healthier, but my tap water tastes horrible! ! And I hate to keep spending all the extra $ on plastic throw -aways! !
