How frustrating is it when you realize you used the last roll of toilet paper? Or when you go to feed your pet and find that the food bin is empty? Even before the pandemic, subscription based services were gaining in popularity, and for good reason. These auto-renewal programs save you time and eliminate having to remember to add a lot of everyday essentials to your shopping list. We’ve rounded up our must-have subscription based services to streamline your frequent purchases.


For pet owners, Chewy is popular because it carries a multitude of products and brands.

This one’s for the kids! Not necessarily an essential, but KiwiCo sends your kids monthly, educational STEAM kits. The kits are sorted into lines by age and type (art or science). Once the line is selected, it ships within 2 days. You can pause or cancel at any time. KiwiCo is a great option because it’s educational and fun! Plus, it’s a great activity to do with your children.

Book of the Month

Book of the Month eliminates the age-old question: “What should I read next?” There’s several book subscription options out there, but this is one of the cheapest and easiest. It gives you 5 monthly picks to choose from and you can select one (or more) and then read and review. Don’t read one book a month? No problem. Each month, you’re asked if you want a book or not.


Lastly, there’s Amazon. With your Prime membership, utilize Subscribe & Save or the dash buttons for frequently purchased items. Amazon is really one stop shopping and they now even have a pharmacy and grocery delivery through Whole Foods.
