You Can Stop Going to the Store for Supplies

We all have to keep supplies in our homes like toilet-paper, kleenex, and laundry detergent.  As you get older, getting these supplies can be burdensome.  They're heavy, awkward to carry, they run out quickly, and it's hard to remember when you need need more.  You have to go to the store, maybe get a ride or take a bus and then carry them into your house.  This can take an entire day of effort let alone cost if you have to pay someone to take you!  

I'm impressed with They have a Subscribe and Save Program. I set this up for my senior concierge clients.  Now you can have your regular products sent to your home on a timed schedule at a hopefully reduced cost.  

We set-up this subscription for products like:

Chucks (covers for the bed or chairs for incontinence)
Laundry Detergent
Toilet Paper
Gloves/Masks (for caregivers)
Dish Soap

Amazon will send products to you monthly or at any schedule interval that you would like.  The website is not particularly easy to understand at first but once you figure it out, it can be a great tool that you monitor for your clients or they can monitor themselves.

The only issue now is how to get the boxes that they are delivered in recycled.  That's another day when the concierge comes to visit.

Happy Shopping!
