My family is always busy. Even in the thick of summer, we have errands to run, summer school and summer camp drop off and in between that I’m always needing to stop at the grocery store. I have yet to master this crazy thing called “Meal Planning” so for me, the daily grocery store run is just another part of my day. It’s hot in Central Florida, though, so if my family isn’t properly hydrated, we feel it. It’s important for me to always have healthy and convenient options on hand for my family. Stocking up on bottled water is a must so we always have fresh, cold water when we need it most.
We all know it’s a pain in the behind to lug the cases of water in and out of the cart, then in the car, out of the car, and finally inside the house. When the day comes that I see our water supply dropping I sorta dread the day I have to restock our water. I really hate it and I’ve dropped more than one case of water before but let’s not bring up embarrassing stories. So what do we do? I ration off the water, and tell my kids to drink slower or that we can’t bring water in the car today. Buying bottled water by the individual bottle means you’re spending way too much time restocking at the grocery store. Buying in bulk keeps your shopping trips infrequent, but those cases are so heavy, and big box stores are energy-sapping circuses. With that dreaded trip to the store looming, a sense of anxiety takes over. As your bottled water supply dwindles, you begin to hoard those last few bottles for your kids, your spouse, or even just a thirstier moment. This is a phenomenon referred to as The Fear of Running Out—denying yourself and your family the bottled water they want just so you don’t have to go back to the store or add another inconvenience to your day.
So let me tell you how excited I was to hear about the ReadyRefresh program and when they asked me to partner up with them I was over the moon and jumped on board right away. ReadyRefresh by Nestlé believes that your hydration should never hinge on the inconvenience of restocking your bottled water supply. Having your favorite bottled water on hand, without hassle, keeps you in control of what you drink, and when. Because when you’re thirsty, you should get to drink your beverage of choice—not fall victim to Fear of Running Out. With ReadyRefresh never suffer from the Fear of Running Out again.
Thirsty choices aren’t always smart choices, and the lack of healthy beverage options often means your family reaching for what’s available which could be sugary sodas or juices. Sometimes for me, that’d be going through the fast food drive-thru for a sweet tea or sprite for the kids just so we’d get some relief. Did you know, replacing a single 12-ounce, 140-calorie sugar-sweetened beverage with water each day for a year can cut more than 50,000 calories from one’s diet?
The ReadyRefresh mission is simple: make it easy for you and your family to live a healthier life. With just a few clicks, or a few taps on your mobile device, through ReadyRefresh.com, you’ll quickly customize your order for thirst-quenching beverages delivered right to your door. Recently, my friend and local Orlando blogger Christie of Raising Whasians was selected to participate in a very 2-week interesting study with ReadyRefresh to observe The Fear of Running Out, and you can see her family’s experience in this great video below:
- More than half of all surveyed (52%) experience FORO at least once a week.
- Nearly half of all full-time working parents (46%) surveyed say they ration or replace everyday household items with a less desirable alternative at least once per week, to avoid running out completely.
- According to the survey, more than half of full-time working parents (55%) say that daily errands keep them from spending quality time with friends and family.
With choices such as Zephyrhills (still and sparkling), Nestlé Pure Life, Perrier, San Pellegrino, Acqua Panna in a variety of sizes and flavors, there is something for everyone in the family! And ReadyRefresh makes staying hydrated easy and convenient offering expanded delivery hours, flexible frequency options (choose weekly, biweekly, monthly, bimonthly, every 3 months or even one-time ordering) for any product delivered and increased communication.
