This is such a great month for transitions. One season closes and another begins. And if you have kids in college, it is a time for new beginnings and experiences. If they are anything like my kids, they are more eager to go back than we are for them to leave. We really want them to have the best experience, but we also know that we are going to miss them being home. The time you have with your college student is limited and I have some tips for you to use these last few weeks to make the most of your time.
SUMMER BUCKET LIST
Use the last couple of weeks to hit items on both your summer bucket list. If you do not have a list, take advantage of the great weather and enjoy a day outdoors and catch a sunset together. Take photos so you can both remember the great day you had and use the time together to discuss things such as future trips and communication during the school year. The capability to stay in touch online allows a great way to stay connected.
BACK TO SCHOOL SALES
Help your college student with school supplies. You can find some great items that will help them have a successful year at the back to school sales. Products such as paper, pens, markers, files and binders are on sale at really low prices this time of the year. What a great time to take advantage of stocking up on these items for your student and even yourself if you are an office supply lover, like I am. There are also some great sales on the personal items they will need as well.
PREPARING FOR THE COLLEGE YEAR
I know how difficult emotionally it can be when your child goes off to college, but it is an exciting time for them and there are ways to make it fun for you as a parent. One of the fun ways to keep in touch is to send them a care package every couple of months.
I found some great items on sale at Walmart that are perfect for an upcoming care package, so I went back to purchased these. I picked up some important personal items such as ankle socks, a bath sponge and some disposable razors, Schick® Quattro For Women®.
Every women wants to feel confident and college students especially want to feel clean and confident as they enter this new stage. Schick® Disposable Razors can help accompany them on the journey.
I cannot wait to show you what I am putting together in a couple of weeks. By the way, right now you can buy one Schick® disposable razor package and get one free with these money-saving coupons from Walmart.
I also want to mention that the #SchickSelfieSweeps which is an Instagram sweepstakes that is taking place right now. You can enter for a chance to win $10,000 for college tuition for your student.

Enjoy the time with your student and before you go, let me know one thing that you want to do with your student before school starts.
