Retail Therapy: How I Save Up To 35% On Household Products (without coupons)

Amazon Subscribe and Save

While I will always be a faithful Publix and Trader Joe customer when it comes to everyday food items and BOGO deals, I just had to make a change in my buying habits on big dollar necessary evils.

Paper Towels

Toilet Paper

Dish Detergent

Laundry Detergent


I don’t coupon much for three reasons.

#1 I don’t have enough time to dedicate to it to make it worth it (aka I would rather be blogging, working, cooking or really anything other than couponing).

#2 I don’t have patience (aka printing coupons makes me want to pull my hair out).

#3 I am not organized enough(aka couponing and menu planning at the same time is enough to make me go crazy, especially after a long work week).

Don’t get me wrong. I LOVE a great deal, but I also value my free time.

So I started a subscription service through Amazon.

It’s called Subscribe and Save (they also have one specifically for diapers and baby products called Amazon Mom).

The gist of the programs is:

subscribe to receive specific products through the program (you choose how often),

get 5% discount off the already low bulk Amazon pricing,

order 5 or more items with the same delivery schedule and receive an additional 10% off you whole order

with free shipping.

So my order above includes brands and items I regularly buy at Target.

But this time I ordered them through the Subscribe and Save program.

I saved 35.6% off my order compared to regular Targets prices; I was shocked at the savings.

And I did’t have to wait for sales or look for coupons.

Best of all, all those products were waiting for me at my front door when I got off work last Wednesday.

I love knowing that I don’t have to remember to buy TP, dog treats or paper towels!

Yay for convenient cheap.

PS. if you are a Amazon Mom/Prime member you can even save an additional 5% off entire orders.

PSS. You can cancel or change your subscription at any time.
