Skip the Store with Essentials from Amazon


This post is sponsored by Kleenex, Scott, Cottonelle, and Viva, but the content and opinions expressed here are my own.

I cannot get my life together right now. This summer has been full of so many good things and so much family time, but it has been FULL. And since we both work full time, the daily grind of alarm clocks, daycare dropoffs, and morning commutes marches on even in the summer. I don't think R will be going to an official preschool next year because she's at daycare full time, and they do basically everything there that she would at preschool, but I know once she starts elementary school, things are going to get even crazier!

If there is one thing I said I would never do it, write a sponsored blog post for something like toilet paper. But you know what? We had two rolls left, and I had no time (and no desire) to go to the store, and I was offered an opportunity to buy toilet paper from Amazon and have it delivered to my house the next day so yes I took it. I DID. And I have no regrets because, let's be honest: Cottonelle is actually the best. Also the best? Having things arrive magically on your doorstep.

I also bought some Kleenex facial tissues, which are going to be great for keeping in the diaper bag and backpack. R has gotten into a habit of swiping across her cheek with the back of her hand, and the side of her face has constant gunk on it so....  I need these.

I asked her to test the Kleenex wipes out on her face, and she was such a good model! Then she wanted to try them out on her feet haha ;)

Shop smarter and quicker on Amazon for Kleenex, Cottonelle, Scott, and Viva products! There's this handy page with everything in one section for easier shopping. There are even coupons to clip up, and you can get 15% off by signing up for the subscribe and save.

I suppose I should, as they say, never say never. Because sometimes you do run out of toilet paper. And sometimes it's nice to have it shipped right to your front door and waiting for you when you get home from work. 

Sometimes being an adult is awesome and means eating ice cream for dinner. And sometimes it means getting excited about toilet paper in the mail. Life is weird.

Stock up with household and back-to-school supplies on Amazon and save here!

Ha! That's so real life. Never say never, I guess. ;) Also, Cottonelle is my favorite!

I order EVERYTHING from Amazon! hahah. I can't remember the last time I bought paper towels or toilet paper in a store! LOL!

Yeah girl. No shame in a sponsored post. And when you USE the stuff?! Even better. I don't have kids yet but love getting these essentials delivered. And my groceries from Shipt. I'm all about making time at home worth it!

Amazon is a LIFESAVER when there are (hypothetically) tantrum-throwing toddlers involved.

I buy ALL of my toilet paper and paper towels online. They are so big and bulky it's just more practical to have them delivered than to have them taking up real estate in the cart and filling up the trunk when I need the room for groceries. I don't think I've bought toilet paper at a store (unless you count couponing deals at CVS) for years.

If this were any other blogger, I'd totally be skipping a sponsored post about toilet paper, but you always give us fun little side stories, so I happily click over :) I buy a lot of my essentials from and really stock up when I do (organizing them in the shelves in our garage makes me look like a doomsday prepper, but I find joy in it). It's one less thing to think about. Also, I need to check out these face wipes. We love Boogie Wipes, but they are kind of pricey and not all-purpose.
