You’ve probably noticed the “Subscribe & Save” option for some products on Amazon. But if you’re anything like us, you’ve never actually clicked it. Big mistake. The feature allows you to get household items like paper towels and hand soap Prime-shipped to your door on a regular basis (anywhere from once a month to every six months, based on your preferences). And you’ll save some bucks for doing so. Amazon offers 5 percent off every item right away, and 15 percent off each item if you sign up to receive five subscriptions a month.

The best part? You’re not locked in once you decide to subscribe. Amazon will send you a reminder email ahead of your shipment, and if you realize you don’t need more laundry detergent just yet, you can easily skip the delivery or outright cancel the subscription.

Here, find eight items that are actually worth clicking “Subscribe & Save” for. They’ll make your life (and weekly shopping trip) a whole lot easier.

subscribe save bounty

1. bounty Quick-size Paper Towels, 12 Family Rolls

Does your kitchen floor seem to be a magnet for spills these days? Join the club. These 12 family-size paper towel rolls (which are equivalent to 30 regular rolls, BTW) will make cleanup a breeze. And thanks to the “Subscribe & Save” feature, you’ll never run out of them. Right now, Amazon is also offering a $3 coupon on your first “Subscribe & Save” order if you pick these up.

subscribe save tide

2. tide Pods 3-in-1 He Turbo Laundry Detergent Pacs (81 Count)

We’ve run out of laundry detergent more times than we’d like to admit, so the idea of having a fresh pack of Tide Pods arrive on our doorstep every two months sounds like a godsend. And at this price, you’ll be paying only 23 cents per load of laundry. Major win.

subscribe save neutrogena

3. neutrogena Makeup Remover Cleansing Towelettes (2 Pack)

Fact: You can quite literally never have enough makeup wipes. We keep a pack in our car, another in our desk and one in our purse for unexpected makeup mishaps (or when we just can’t stand the feeling of our mascara any longer). So naturally, we’re pleased by the thought of a steady stream of Neutrogena wipes arriving at our door every month. And while saving a penny per wipe might not sound like a lot, we know it’ll add up the way we go through them.

subscribe save pampers

4. pampers Swaddlers Disposable Baby Diapers (150 Count)

Say goodbye to late-night Walgreens runs when the diaper count dwindles faster than you expected. According to Amazon, this box is a one-month supply of diapers, so just sign up for a monthly subscription and you’ll be all set (barring any major blowout catastrophes). You’ll save $2.47 per box too, which is huge considering the cost of diapers these days.

subscribe save cottonelle

5. cottonelle Ultra Gentlecare Toilet Paper, 24 Family Mega Rolls

Another thing we can never have too much of? Toilet paper. One week, we think we’re stocked for the month, but next thing we know, the kids are complaining about having to wipe with tissues again. No more. This 24 Family Mega Roll pack is the equivalent of 128 regular rolls, so it’ll keep your crew supplied for a while. And if you sign up to receive one every two months, you’ll never go without again. Knock on wood.

subscribe save blue buffalo

6. blue Buffalo Life Protection Formula Dry Dog Food

You already buy dog food on the reg, so you might as well automate it. After all, fewer impromptu trips to Petco = more time to play with Buddy. Plus, you’ll save $2.45 on each bag by subscribing. After a few months, you can put that to good use and buy him a new chew toy.

subscribe save deodorant

7. degree Men Antiperspirant Deodorant (6 Count)

We’re guessing staying fresh isn’t exactly top-of-mind for him, so it probably falls on you to make sure he’s stocked up on deodorant. With the click of a button, it becomes Amazon’s problem to worry about. A new box of deodorant will arrive every few months, so you don’t have to endure a stinky partner anymore. Psst: you’ll also save 20 percent if you include this in your first “Subscribe & Save” order.

subscribe save glad

8. glad Tall Kitchen Drawstring Trash Bag (90 Count)

Garbage bags: The item you never think to buy until you’re completely out and forced to make do with an old shopping bag. Sign up to receive this 90-count box every few months and you’ll never run into that issue again. Because a shorter shopping list is pure bliss.
