If you’re anywhere in the Midwest – or maybe just about anywhere in the U.S. these days – you’d know that it has been hot, hot, HOT lately. Temps have reached the high 90’s near me, with the heat index topping over 110 degrees for the last week or so. So hot, it’s almost unbearable to step outside. I’m used to being out and about with the family most weekends, but lately I don’t even like venturing out to my own backyard! And that’s just for me – there’s also the kids and baby twins to think about! YOU try telling a 5-year-old that he can’t go outside and play on his slip ‘n slide to cool off! Not an easy task by a longshot.
My son pretty much won’t let up. It feels like 110 degrees outside…of course he wants to go out and enjoy the weather in the water! And while I’m all for him getting out and being active, it’s also very important to me that he stays hydrated. For that matter, my whole family needs to stay hydrated too. That’s a lot of people in my house. Seven, to be exact. To make sure that we kept hydrated both at home and on the go, I found myself frequently purchasing bottled water. All the time. I ended up spending way too much time restocking at the grocery store, or buying at my local bulk warehouse store. Buying in bulk kept my shopping trips infrequent, but those cases are so stinkin’ heavy, and big box stores are energy-sapping (and cash-sapping) circuses.
Did you know that in 2014 bottled water volume sales in US supermarkets surpassed that of carbonated soft drinks, showing a shift of preference towards bottled water as opposed to beverages with added sugars? Refreshment is a business that’s changing dramatically as consumers think differently about how they keep their households and offices hydrated, refreshed and healthy. I know I don’t purchase soft drinks or carbonated beverages for my family. My five-year-old has yet to try soda! I always keep him hydrated with water. Only. I’ve been using ReadyRefresh to simply click & quenchSM !

So easy to order! Now all you have to do is never run out. You’ve heard of the Fear of Missing Out (FOMO), right? Well, you might be suffering from the Fear of Running Out (FORO)—that nagging feeling you get when you’re running low on everyday essentials like toilet paper, diapers, or pet food. When it comes to FORO of bottled water, you can keep your healthy hydration on track and put your distress to rest—ReadyRefresh to the rescue! With customizable deliveries of thirst-quenching water–from sparkling to still, in the brands you love most–you’ll never experience FORO for bottled water again.
In a recent FORO survey, more than half of all surveyed (52%) experience FORO at least once a week. 69% of those surveyed experience feelings such as stress, anxiety and worry when household items start to run low. And 69% of survey respondents run low on everyday household items at least once a week. This happens to me all the time, too (hello, toilet paper!) and at least now I never have to worry about my drinking water running out!
So now that you know all about FORO, and how to combat it with ReadyRefresh. To learn more, visit ReadyRefresh.com and use the hashtag #NoMoreFORO on social media.
