Back to School with Brita + Giveaway! [CLOSED]

This post brought to you by Brita. All opinions are 100% mine.


It’s August, which means it’s time for back to college shopping! I went to Target the other day to get a few things for back to school, and I wanted to show you a few things I got. It's easy to be overwhelmed by back to college shopping, so here are a few things people often forget about, but should definitely be on your list. Everything I got is available at Target.

Brita®water pitcher

As you all know, drinking water is great for your skin and your health overall. Brita®water filters are great because they filter out impurities from tap water. They're also environmentally friendly because you don't need to buy water bottles all the time. I just fill my own water bottle before I head out for class or the gym! 

Glad food storage containers

Food storage containers are a lifesaver. Sometimes you can be on campus for an entire day, and you don’t always have time to go back to your dorm or apartment for lunch. I pack my lunch and snacks in these containers: chopped fruit, salads, leftovers, sandwiches, etc. This way, I’m eating healthier than I would be if I bought lunch everyday on campus – plus, I’m saving money!

Glad trash bags

It’s easy to get caught up in back to school shopping and forget some of the more mundane necessities, like trash bags. I guarantee lots of people will forget to bring trash bags, so be the awesome roommate that doesn’t forget to bring them. I like Glad trashbags because they tend to hold up really well.

The small things: Burt’s Bees

I also stopped by the beauty aisle and got two products from Burts Bees that I love. First, I bought moisturizer. I got the one for sensitive skin and I love it! It’s light and doesn’t make me break out. Second, I bought some lip balms: one in pink grapefruit and a tinted lip balm in Red Dahlia. I love the smell of the pink grapefruit lip balm, and I love that the tinted lip balm adds just the tiniest amount of color. 
Watch my haul here!
