Product Name: ReadyU and P&G

Product Information: Whether you’re a busy, laid back or protective mom, every mother wants to send their child off to college well-equipped and prepared for anything. Thanks to P&G, you can now return to life as an empty nester worry-free knowing that your kids are well armed for life’s everyday challenges.

ReadyU is a program that aims to improve the lives of college students by helping them through the anxiety of leaving home, meeting new friends and living on their own. ReadyU supports college students by providing the content, experiences and solutions they need to conquer beyond the classroom. The program is supported by over 150 colleges throughout the country and is championed by campus ambassadors with dedicated events featuring select P&G products, which assist students in succeeding in those important moments that go beyond the average curriculum.

While they are at school, you can show your student that you love them by sending them the ultimate ReadyU care package with products from Gillette, Old Spice, COVERGIRL, Tide, Herbal Essences, Crest, Olay, Secret and Duracell. These products make getting up for a 10:10 a.m. class on time or doing three weeks worth of laundry simple. Growing up isn’t easy, so make them feel closer to home!

Purchase Information: You can purchase P&G products in drug stores and grocery stores nationwide.

My Thoughts: When I was in college I begged my mom to send me a care package, but she never did. Not that she wouldn’t send me what I needed, but she didn’t have the time to do it since she worked so much so instead she’d put money into my bank account so I could buy what I needed. While that worked out fine, I really just wanted to get a package in the mail with something from home because I was a bit homesick.

If she had sent me a ReadyU care package like I received from P&G to review, I would of been super excited. P&G products are some of my favorite and they are all such a great value, how can you not purchase them! This past weekend there was a P&G coupon insert in your Sunday paper, look through it and find some items that are on sale and go and purchase them and make a care package for someone you know going off to college. I know they will appreciate it. Seriously, it’s the only time they will like getting deodorant, shampoo and tampons as a gift! lol
