Is Your College Newbie Campus Ready?
Going to college or university can be a nerve racking experience. It can be both exciting and terrifying at the same time.
As my mother explains to me, it was even more terrifying and exciting for her to send me to school. Not only would she miss me, but she was proud of me and even more so, worried about me that I’d be eating, getting my studying in, and that I would be safe and do well. Most of all, she wanted me to be happy all the while.
So, for those parents who might be a little worried, I want to share with you the new capabilities you have when you shop at Sears for your college-goer.
Is Your College Newbie CampusReady?
Say, for instance, all of a sudden, your student has left the house and gone to school and forgot to bring a toaster or crock pot.
No problem, go online to Sears.com, purchase whatever it is your university newbie needs and at checkout, choose the “Web2Store” option.
This will allow you to pay for the items and choose the Sears closest to your son or daughter’s campus, so they can pick it up at their convenience. No need to pay for shipping or driving it all the way out to them to Florida from Pennsylvania – unless you miss them that much you need an “reason or excuse” to see them – and check up on them…LOL
Simple – Easy! I know you’re worried they’re going to be either eating junk or not eating at all. It’s going to be alright…
…They’ll eat if they’re hungry – so, that’s not a problem. As for eating junk, that might be inevitable in college, but you can always send them here, to CookingWithKimberly.com for really easy, healthy, simple dishes they can make in their toaster oven, microwave, crock pot or in the community kitchen in their dorms.
Just use the search function for the key words you want and voila – email them the link, Stumble it to them on Stumble Upon, or Facebook them! Oh yeah, be sure to check out the CampusReady app on Facebook too!
Also, since college tuition continues to rise, be sure to enter for a chance to win money towards your child’s college education from Sears and Upromise. There will be a total of $25,000 awarded, so why not get in on the action?
Now, if you’re already a Upromise member, like we are, you are automatically entered to win with every Sears purchase with your registered card. However, you can also go to Sears.com/campusready to enter for free and see full rules and complete details.
I hope you enjoyed this Food Find on Cooking With Kimberly! Until next time…
