The other afternoon, my boss asked how I was coping with our recent run of bad luck and I confessed that I’ve taken to eating cereal for dinner since James isn’t usually home. “I can’t figure out how to fit everything into one day and still have the energy to eat anything that takes more than two minutes to make,” I said.
My boss, who has a full-time job and three very active children, said, “That’s why I do all my shopping online.”
Only, even when I remember to do the shopping I usually end up forgetting something crucial.
So I was thrilled to learn that Target now offers a subscription service, through which you can have those household necessities delivered on a schedule. If you find that you don’t need laundry detergent every month but instead every six weeks, you can easily log in and make the adjustment yourself. Here are the categories you can order subscription items from:
By wiping all of those last minute shopping trips off my to do list, I’ll be saving myself hours each week. We’ll also be saving money, since you receive a 5% discount off of subscription items plus another 5% discount if you use your Target REDcard.
Perhaps the biggest benefit of all is that I don’t have to dedicate any more room in my brain to panicking over whether or not our toilet paper supply will last until I get to the store, or if we’ll have coffee when we’re bleary eyed on Monday morning.
Even after all this craziness ends (and it will end, right?), we’ll be happy to have this tool to get us one step closer to an orderly life.
