Back to School Shopping at Target #PURELL30

I still can’t believe that summer break is over and my son started back to school last Thursday. He is in is first full week of school this week and although I wish we had a couple more weeks left to enjoy the summer, we are back into the groove of a school routine, even with me cracking my right rib on Friday (that’s a story for another day).

Thankfully I did our back to school shopping at Target before I cracked my ribs.

I know some parents dread back-to-school shopping, but I actually enjoy it. I like printing out the back-to-school supply list, going to Target, and checking things off my list. And with the exception of one thing that had to be ordered, I was able to get everything at Target.

PURELL Target Back to School #PURELLChallenge 1

My son needed lots of binders, paper (college-ruled, notebooks and graphing paper), pens and pencils this year. I think that means lots of writing. Although he does have the most atrocious handwriting, he loves writing — the process and creativity of writing.

While shopping for school supplies, I also picked up lots of PURELL Hand Sanitizer.

To celebrate the start of the new school year and to get it started off on the right foot, by keeping our household healthy and happy, we are taking the PURELL 30-Day Challenge. Starting today! We will commit to using PURELL Advanced Hand Sanitizer for 30 days.

PURELL Advanced Hand Sanitizer Ready for #PURELL30

Honestly, this will be easy, since we do this most days anyway, but we will be developing a good habit of using it every single day. Especially since our son is back in school, no better time than the present to start this challenge.

#PURELL30 Back to School Challenge

You can get PURELL in gels, wipes, and portable (or pocket-sized) bottles…

  • PURELL® Advanced Hand Sanitizer
  • PURELL® Hand Sanitizing Wipes
  • PURELL® JELLY WRAP™ Carriers


I keep the portables in my bag, the car, gym bag, son’s lunch box, and his backpack.

I plan on continuing to use PURELL brand of products throughout the year by turning a challenge, into a habit. Because PURELL Advanced Hand Sanitizer is one of my son’s backpack essentials.
Back to School with PURELL from Target #PURELL30

  1. I love this product, I call it my germ gel. I have packed my kids backpacks with a small bottle of it in there!

  5. My son just start today and he wasted no time. He woke up with a cold. We like to use Purell a lot when we are out. Shopping Carts are the worst for me. This is a great school essential.

  6. I’ve got to stock up on Purell. The kids are headed back to school, and I have no time for sickness. Those kids are little germ incubators!

  7. I make my kids wash their hands first thing when they get home from school, and I always keep Purell in the house. No germs for this family if I can help it!

  8. I hope you feel better. It sure seems like summer has flown by. I didn’t know that they had Purell wipes.

  26. Third day into school and my kid already came home with strep throat. Ugh. Need sanitizer.

  32. We are big on hand washing and hygiene. We are a total hand sanitizer kind of family.
