My DIY Back to School College Care Kit and  “You Got This” printable is a sponsored post written by me on behalf of Procter & Gamble.

I can’t believe it’s back to school time already. We just finished our school registrations, but still have some shopping to do. 

My three younger kids will get some clothes to replace some items they’ve outgrown, while my oldest daughter who finished her second semester of college last year, will get a college care package.

For her package I pulled together things that will help her get ready in the morning and wind down at night.

To help me get started with her college care kit, Procter & Gamble sent me some college essentials from the Harmon section of the store.

She lives on her own and literally takes care of herself. From sun up to sun down, she’s working towards her goals. Procter & Gamble has a special #CollegeSpeak term for this kind of person. They’re called “AllDayers”(people who are always on the go and usually make it through the day without a nap). She’s always on the go, so I know her go-to products will be the CoverGirl Intensify Me! Liquid Liner and Secret Outlast Women’s Invisible Solid Deodorant. They’ll help her stay fresh and pretty while she crushing her goals.

The theme of her kit is “You got this!” and I filled with everything she needs to tackle the day ahead.

P&G items in her shower caddy:

  • CoverGirl Intensify Me! Liquid Liner
  • CoverGirl Colorlicious Lipstick
  • Gillette Venus Flex Swirl Razor
  • Herbal Essences Hello Hydration Moisturizing Shampoo and Conditioner
  • Secret Outlast Women’s Invisible Solid Deodorant
  • Crest 3D White Arctic Fresh Toothpaste
  • Oral B Toothbrush
  • loofah

A few other things I added to her care package:

  • pumice stone
  • shower cap
  • laundry basket
  • clock
  • snacks
Once her shower caddy was filled, I created a printable with the words “You Got This”. I think it’s so stinking cute and I love motivational reminders. Theres a link for you to print yours at the end of this post.

I know she’ll be super surprised when she sees her package in the mail and will call me as soon as she opens it. 

If you have a kid in college, who would love a fun surprise package like this, Bed Bath & Beyond is the perfect place to stock up on the items they need plus you can score a $10 gift card. 

The products they sent and more are part of their P&G (Buy $40 get $10) promotion. 

When you purchase $40 in participating P&G items in the Harmon section of Bed Bath & Beyond you’ll receive a $10 Bed Bath & Beyond gift card. *(Offer is in-store only and runs from 8/1/16 to 8/31/16)

  1. This care package has all the perfect items to keep college students fully stocked. I can't even imagine when my kids are old enough to go away to college.

  2. I've been seeing more and more of these smart kits around. I think it's a wonderful way to get our kids ready without forgetting anything they might need.

  3. I love the portrait, so meaningful and up-lifting. Sometimes we need that specially when staring a new endeavor.

  4. This is a great idea. I don't know anyone in college but this is a great idea for students.

  5. I love all kinds of DIY stuff due to their personalized significance. This is really a nice kit.

  6. I remember the days when I was in college and we all shared the showers. This is a great idea, and I love that you included a clock.
