Well, except for the whole we need to figure out the funding of said college aspect.
I have one child in college, and he lives at home. Next year, I have a daughter who will be going to college, and I can already tell you - she's going away. There's no way at all that I think she will be here one more day than she needs to be - and college is her ticket out.
Her best friend went away this past year, and I was privy to quite a bit of the "Let's get ready for college!" pack up and drama - and one thing that struck me repeatedly was just exactly how EXPENSIVE this entire matter is. Getting ready to let your child live away from home costs an awful lot of cash - and when they are on their own, you know that it's going to be tough for them to make ends meet. Trying to remember everything, running from store to store to try to get the best deal and the greatest value - it can be tough.
Sam's Club has come up with a new product that I think is genius - just in time for that back to college crush. It's an enormous bundle of all of the personal products that your college student may need - different packets for men and women - and you can even select to ship it straight to your student's door. Sam's Club takes the stress out of heading back to class with pre-assembled bundles that include all of the necessities your teen needs. From cleaning/laundry to school supplies to room organization, Sam's Club provides all of the items on your list in a single, affordable package.
Now you don't have to wonder if he's using soap in the shower or if she ran out of deodorant again. With just a few clicks, the personal bundle is right there.
What's in it? Glad you asked.

And make no mistake about it - college is ridiculously expensive. With
the high cost of tuition, room and board, textbooks and more, college is becoming more and more out of the reach of most students. Sam's Club wants to help
families this year by offering college supplies at an affordable price - which doesn't do anything about the tuition prices, but at least you can save money in one area.
I'm pleased to be able to offer to one lucky reader a fantastic prize - an iHome! This would be a fantastic addition to your student's dorm room, a great gift from Grandma - or something nice for you! To enter to win this fantastic prize, leave me a comment telling me which of the new Sam's Club personal bundles you'd be most interested in purchasing.
