5 reasons you need to start shopping on Amazon for household essentials that will save you time, money, & so much more!
Last weekend Roger & I went on a nature walk with his family. Before racing off down the trails with his three little nieces we stopped to look at the nature scavenger hunt list they had picked up from the ranger’s station. Each item on the list was accompanied by a little picture so that the kids could easily take turns checking off each item they found.
We had so much fun peering through the woods looking for delicate spider webs, mushrooms growing through the fallen leaves, & trying to catch a glimpse of a squirrel as it foraged for nuts.
Although I must say, finding a butterfly this time of year was rather difficult!
After finding all of the items on the little list (well, almost all, the butterflies alluded us) we came upon a swinging bridge. And of course, there is always that one person that has to make the bridge swing & shake as if the earth itself is shaking. And I just so happen to be married to him…
But it was so much fun to hear the little ones squeal as they tried to keep their balance & make it to the other side. And as his sister said, “There is never a dull moment with Uncle Rog!”
Little moments like these are so special & an important reminder that nature is delicate. And in the fading of summer into fall we are reminded of nature’s balance & the part we can play in keeping our forests alive & beautiful.
I’ve partnered with Kimberly-Clark Family Care to help protect nature by taking one simple action – purchasing products that have the Forest Stewardship Council (FSC) label. You can rest assure that the FSC certified product you purchase comes from responsibly managed forests around the globe protecting forests for generations to come. And in all of the hustle & bustle of the season, this can be rather difficult.
Luckily, Amazon has made it incredibly convenient to shop for necessary household items, especially if you use Amazon’s Subscribe & Save feature!) With Amazon Subscribe & Save you get free shipping, convenient regular delivery on the schedule you set, and you can cancel at any time.
Plus, if you subscribe to 5 or more products you can receive an additional 15% off. And you can click here to find coupons available on the Amazon product page.
Until a few months ago I had no idea you could order brands like Cottonelle, Scott, Kleenex & Viva online. I mean logically it makes sense, these days you can order anything online, but it wasn’t something I had ever considered. During a mini family reunion at my aunt & uncle’s house, they mentioned that right before we arrived they had just received a package in the mail filled with those exact things.
I laughed at first, but then realized the brilliance. I always forget to add paper towels & toilet paper to our grocery list & this way, as soon as you realize you are running low, you can immediately order what you need online!
I had almost forgotten about this conversation until a few days ago when my cousin (their daughter) posted a picture online of her most recent paper towel delivery from Amazon, which her cat had gotten to first & claimed the box as his new home.
And so a few days later I made my first order online!
So if you are eager to save time & money, while using products from brands that care about the things you care about, like protecting forests around the world, then you will want love the ease of shopping for your favorite essential household items on Amazon!
And I’ve compiled my top five reasons you need to start shopping on Amazon for household essentials below!
1. Ease of Shopping
Click a few buttons on your phone (or computer) & you are done!
No hassle of traffic, finding a parking spot, searching for the product amongst all the aisle, waiting in line to check out, trying to remember where you parked (a constant struggle for me!), & driving back through the traffic.
Shipped for free & delivered straight to my door sounds good to me! Oh, & did I mention that you can set up a delivery schedule through Amazon Subscribe & Save so that you never run out of the products you need?
2. Savings + Free Shipping
Have I mentioned the free shipping yet? Two or three times?
I must admit that shipping is what usually keeps me from clicking the checkout button, but with Amazon Subscribe & Save you get free shipping! And, as I mentioned above, if you subscribe to 5 or more products you can receive an additional 15% off & you can get up to $2.50 off.
3. Easy to Remember
It’s super easy to remember, but it’s ok if you forget it!
With Amazon Subscribe & Save you don’t have to remember to add those essential household items to your list because they will remember for you thanks to that schedule you set up!
4. Find Your Favorite Products
Great brands like Cottonelle, Scott, Kleenex, & Viva are partnering with the WWF & FSC to drive awareness of responsible forestry. Which means protecting forests for generations to come.
That’s definitely something I can get behind!
5. Make a Difference & Support the WWF
I love it when brands & companies partner together for a good cause & now you can join the “Heart Your Planet” initiative too!
Kimberly-Clark Corporation, WWF & Forest Stewardship Council® (FSC®) announced a unique three-year agreement designed to raise awareness of the importance of choosing products that use fiber from responsibly managed forests. FSC® is considered a “gold standard” in forest certification & assures that these products come from responsibly managed forests that provide environmental, & social benefits.
