Know someone away at college? Receiving one of these inexpensive care packages will definitely make their day!

I love this idea!

Having your kids away from home can be hard on you but it can be especially hard on them – besides missing all the comforts of home, mom and dad are no longer there to stock the refrigerator with the foods they love – and if your child is playing a sport in college like mine, they are always hungry and need snack foods in their dorm rooms at all times. My son has only been gone a few months and is constantly asking me to send him stuff.  All the shopping, finding a box, trying to stuff everything in the box, waiting in line at the post office, etc. can be time-consuming and expensive.

I just found an awesome, inexpensive alternative with care packages ready to ship at Amazon. There are a ton of different options, including healthy ones and most offer FREE SHIPPING!! That’s the expense that really gets me mad. When I send my son something, the cost of shipping a box across the country can be over $20!

With Free Shipping and the convenience of just having to click a button,  Amazon makes it so easy to let my son know I’m thinking about him with his favorite thing – Food.  The best part is there are so many different options to choose from. I only wish I knew about this sooner, I’m sure my daughter does too.

All kids love getting care packages sent to them at college. Let your child, grandchild, niece/nephew or friend know your thinking about them. It will make their day!
