Easy like Sunday morning.

Raise your hand if you love Amazon Prime!

I LOVE Amazon Prime…if you haven’t checked it out yet, I want this to be your formal invitation to look into it.

Cliff Notes on what Prime is: A way to order the things you need and get them delivered to your doorstep in two days, even on the weekends. It’s a flat $99 fee per year…..$50 if you are a student, and it waives the shipping costs on everything. The first year we used this I really only used it around Christmas time, and I realized how great it was. The amount I saved on shipping during that time made it completely worth it. Since then, 90% of the things I order online come from Amazon. It makes me feel better if I slack when it comes to ordering something for someone’s birthday or a random event, and honestly, the prices are competitive, so I like that.

A few weeks ago my cousin Kaley enlightened me on something she had purchased through Prime, and I jumped all over the chance to own the same thing: Dash buttons.

Dash buttons are a product exclusive to Amazon that allow you to purchase an item with one push of a button…items that you tend to run out of around the house that can really be a pain to go buy. I purchased buttons for two items I always hate running to the store to grab: toilet paper and Clorox wipes. The list of products you can buy goes way deeper….paper towels, razors, Slim Jims, Red Bull, trash bags, Doritos…even condoms! The list goes on and on and on!

These buttons are small, as you can see above, and have an adhesive on the back so you can stick them wherever you would like. The button for toilet paper is right in the bathroom vanity because obviously that’s where we would realize we need the product….the wipes button is under my kitchen sink. These buttons connect through Wifi and cost $4.99 per button; that $4.99 will be credited to the first purchase you make using the button, so the buttons are essentially free.

Add the convenience of Prime to these buttons….you get these items delivered to your doorstep in two days. There goes pesky trips for a pack of toilet paper or Huggies when you realize you are almost out. Easy like Sunday morning.

My only warning with your buttons…..be careful where you stick them! My cousin had an issue with one of her cats stepping on one and placing a large order on her behalf, and heavens knows what kind of order a child could place for you!

Moral of the story: Prime is worth it. Buttons rock. And cats can be dangerous.
