Morning Commute Made Easier + Giveaway

Tracking Pixel

This post was sponsored by Contigo®, however there is a GIVEAWAY at the end, and I truly think this product is really cool and something many of my readers can relate to/find helpful in your daily lives, so read on!

My morning “commute” looks different than it may for some people, but I rush around getting everyone ready and in the car just those people that are heading to the office, except first I am usually headed to the gym, and then back home to my home office.


I am a believer in the power of coffee, and am not coherent or of any help to anyone until I have had at least a few sips. A lot of mornings I don’t have time to finish my coffee before it’s time to go, so I have to drink it on the run. This is always a problem, because I cannot stand cold coffee, and with my other travel mugs, cold coffee is what you get.

Not only cold coffee, but coffee that sloshes all over you and your pants as you try to get your bags and your child’s bag into the car. I started using the Contigo® Meta travel mug, and things have gotten way less stressful around my house when it comes to my morning commute.

The first thing that drew me to this mug is the length of time it will keep your drinks hot or cold. This bad boy has double-wall vacuum insulated Thermalock™ technology, so drinks stay hot for up to five hours, and chilled for up to TWELVE hours!

My other favorite feature is the fact that it is pretty much impossible to spill my drink on myself while juggling bags plus the baby. The  AUTOSEAL® patented technology seals up the drinking spout in between sips when you press one button, so no spilling!

For those of you who commute daily on public transportation, the Meta travel mug would be perfect because you can seal your drink in between sips to keep debris, dust, people’s sneezes, and the like with the commuter-inspired CleanGuard™ spout cover that rotates to close off the drinking area when not being used.

In addition to Contigo’s AUTOSEAL® Metra Travel Mug, I was also sent the AUTOSEAL® West Loop Travel Mug. to try out, and I love it, too!

  2. What a neat design. Would love to win this mug!

  3. This mug would be perfect during the week when I’m drinking my coffee in the car on the way to work!

  4. I love pretty much everything Contigo! Their coffee mugs are the best for travel, and their waterbottles are my favorite! I’d use my new coffee mug to bring coffee to work with me (and have more than one coffee mug and not have to wash it every night!)

  5. Would love this mug to take to work. Coffee is always cold by the time i get to my desk.

  6. I’m a teacher, so I would love a mug that would stay warm from when I leave the house through the first few class periods of the day.

  7. my husband has just started drinking coffee and needs a great travel mug – this would be a perfect gift!

  8. Running from class to class at college, this would be perfect!

  9. I love contigo coffee cups they are my favorite! They keep your coffee hot and they have no spill! I can just throw it in my bag and everything will stay dry… Every coffee addict should have one.

  10. I absolutely adore the contigo mugs.

  11. I know how that mommy morning rush goes and how important coffee is! Awesome product…I already have one myself!

  12. I would SO use this as my mornings are crazy! So the fact that it could keep my iced tea nice and cold for 12 hours would be amazing!!!!

  13. Would love this for my mornings. I am always carrying 5 different bags out and the autoseal would be amazing.

  14. I love this mug for when I’m running around school and forget about my coffee for 30 plus minutes. It’s always cold by the time I get it.

  15. Since I must have coffee to make it through my mornings, I would fill it with coffee and take it everywhere!

  16. This would be perfect for my morning commute! I drive about 45 minutes to my job as a teacher, but I hate drinking my tea while driving. I’d love this to help me keep my beverage warm when I get to school!

  17. Ann Fantom says:

    I would use the Contigo AUTOSEAL Metra Travel Mug to take my coffee to work

  18. Actually, I’d like to win this for my son – who works A LOT. He loves coffee and this mug would make his drive much more pleasant.

  19. I’m so the same way in the am- without at least a few sips you might as well forget it 😉 The problem is keeping it hot in the car and I have yet to find a travel cup that can do that! I would love to win and enjoy hot coffee not lukewarm coffee!

  20. Danielle u says:

    I love it I’m a mama of two and live on coffee

  21. Love love love Contigo! Mugs and water bottles! I do not like when my coffee gets cold and I won’t finish it at all and would love a new mug to have in rotation so I don’t have to wash mine all to time. I also have a horrible habit of spilling my drinks on me so these are perfect!

  22. Welcome to my life! My coffee is never warm by the time I get to it! This would be perfect to keeping it warm:)

  23. YES! This would be perfect to throw in my work bag. Too many times I am carrying my son, his diaper bag, my work bag, water, and coffee. Having a cup I could put into a bag without it spilling would be perfect!

  24. Would be a great give for my wife to use during the spring soccer season.

  25. I want to win it for my hubby so his water can stay ICE COLD throughout his entire rounds of golf! Thanks for the chance to win!

  26. I would love to win for my husband. He’s always complain about spilling and cold coffee in the morning.

  28. I loved my contingo auto seal! BUT, I lost it! I brought it ever where with me!

  29. Nate Baustad says:

    I would use this on my morning commute

  30. Toddler Spawn loves drinking from my cup, so I would keep this one at home so she can’t drink my coffee from it!! I can’t tel you how many times I’ve caught her sipping my iced coffee. #SIDEEYE

  31. I would use it at the office. I have so many papers on my desk stained with coffee!

  32. Probably at work or walking to my car from work- Geaux Saints!

    I would use this mug while I was running my errands

  34. I am in need of a nice travel mug that fits into my cupholders! I love the colors and design

  35. It would definitely be a help on my morning commute, but more so while I’m doing paperwork. I have this serious fear of coffee all over my notes!

  36. I could use this for my coffee on cold winter mornings to work!

  37. I didn’t know this existed! We have Yeti’s which also keep your beverages hot but there isn’t any rubber around it to protect your hand, so I don’t like to put my coffee in it. I would LOVE this for all the commuting I do for work. Cold coffee is not fun. Plus I love the color combo on yours 🙂
