Hey friends! You know I don’t do this very often. Hardly ever, in fact. I’ve been asked to write sponsored posts many times before, and I almost never accept because it’s often a product that I don’t feel like I can honestly recommend to my readers. But this new app has saved my sanity, so I feel compelled to share it with you. If your kids are going to sleep away camp this summer, you really need to check it out! (HINT: I’ve got a discount for you too!)
E and S are going to sleep away camp for the very first time this summer. Eeeeek! I’m so excited, but also nervous. I’m like 90% excited, 10% nervous. They’ll get to have so many unforgettable experiences, meet new friends who they’ll probably remember for the rest of their lives. They’ll get to do stuff they never do at home, like stay up late, hike in the woods, sleep under the stars. They will also be out of my house for a whole week! Think of all the writing I’ll get done!
But of course, they’ll be away from me for a whole week. They have NEVER done this before. What if they need me? What if they get hurt? What if they contract Naegleria fowleri from swimming in a lake and they get a brain-eating amoeba? (It can happen, people!)
OK, maybe I’m more like 80% excited, 20% nervous. (That brain-eating amoeba thing almost never happens.)
But with all this obsessing over nonsense–plus filling out forms, planning transportation, filling out forms, finishing up the school year, filling out forms, and the zillion other things I need to do to get them ready for camp (did I mention filling out forms?)–the last thing I want to worry about is shopping for the massive amount of supplies they need to take to camp.
If your child is going to sleep away camp, you know what I’m talking about. The list is insane! It’s not just sleeping bags and clothes. They need all their own toiletries, two towels, shower shoes, a soap dish, water bottles, a mesh bag for wet clothes PLUS a separate laundry bag. It goes on for longer, but I’m sure you don’t need me to re-traumatize you with it. You’ve read your own list. And maybe cried a little.
Then after you shop for all this stuff, you’ve got to label every little item and somehow pack it into a duffle bag that your kid can actually carry. Sound familiar? Well, as with so many other things in life, now there’s an app for that!
In 15 minutes, you can purchase all your summer camp toiletries (shampoo, toothpaste, body wash, etc.) and just about everything else that your kids need to bring to camp. In addition to the usual stuff, I got my girls a mesh shower caddy, a super-cute leopard print velcro towel wrap, a blinged-out flashlight, and a pen that lights up so they can write at night. (Letters to ME of course. They’ll be missing me desperately.)
And guess what else? They’ll label all the items for you! You don’t have to spend an hour labeling toothpaste, shower shoes, and towels! Plus, if your camp can receive packages, they’ll ship all your stuff directly to your camp! No packing! I don’t know about you, but it’s worth it to me just for that. Of course, you can get it shipped to your home too. In that case, you’ll get it around June 1.
You might be wondering if you’re paying a mark up for all this convenience, but I can honestly say that all this stuff seems to be about the same price you’d pay at my beloved Target. But for you, it will be a little cheaper. I have arranged for a 10% discount just for my blog readers. When you check out, you’ll have to use the referral code “heart” and the discount code “2017fl” without the quotes.
