Everyday Essentials can be tricky when it comes to finding deals. For one thing, since these are the sort of items that people buy a lot of, they often sell at pretty inexpensive prices to begin with. That can make it hard to find discounts but not impossible. The other thing is more often than not when we do find household products on sale it's not necessarily because of a direct discount. A lot of these items go on sale with coupon codes, on-page coupons, and special site-wide promotions that just happen to apply.
For example, Amazon has a Subscribe & Save program that works with most everyday essentials. If you haven't used it before, you can get a discount up to 40% off your first order. The program sends you regular shipments, which isn't bad if it's something you use all the time anyway, and if you keep the subscription up you can save on subsequent deliveries, too. Another program you can use to save would be Prime Now. Stranded on the bowl and you ain't got a roll? Prime Now can get you what you need in a couple hours. Plus, Amazon regularly offers discounts for people who use it as a way to promote it.
You can also use some of Amazon's built-in features to help make regular shipments of everyday essentials more accessible. The new Amazon Day program ensures all your orders come in at the same time, which makes it easier to stay organized each week.
Always Ready To Go: Simple Tech
What constitutes "everyday essential" in the tech world? The stuff you use every day, of course! Charging cables, charging stands, car accessories, wall adapters, USB-C hubs... all those little things you have around your house and your office that make life a little bit easier even though you don't always think about them.
Whether you need Lightning cables, micro USB cables, or USB-C cables, Amazon has a wide range of sizes and colors from all kinds of brands. Remember AmazonBasics is a thing, and it's an Amazon brand that sells tons of charging accessories. Would it really surprise you to see AmazonBasics cables go on sale on Amazon's big day?
You'll also want to keep an eye on wireless charging pads like the ones from Samsung because you can bet we'll see a lot of those on sale. Be prepared to add a couple solid wall adapters to your order for all your new cables and chargers.
Everyday tech includes all those little devices you use all the time, especially the ones that need to be replaced after a while. Get some new charging cables, wireless chargers, or car accessories this Prime Day. AmazonBasics products are a great place to start when looking for deals since it is Amazon's day.
Buy in Bulk: Paper and Plastic Products
Don't get marooned on the high seas of your toilet bowl without a lifeline. Keep your toilet paper stocked up. You're also going to need paper towels, garbage bags, and many other essentials. These are the sort of things you run out of when you aren't paying attention. That's why shopping on Amazon can be helpful since you can buy a whole lot at once for a very small price. And we do see regular deals on these sorts of products. When it comes to toilet paper, we've seen deals on brands like Charmin, Cottonelle, and many others.
For garbage bags, you can expect discounts from Glad, Hefty, and Amazon's own Solimo brand.
Chances are good Amazon carries whatever brand you're interested in, and I imagine we'll see plenty of those brands go on sale during Prime Day. If you know what you're looking for, just bookmark the page and get prepared. Amazon doesn't shy away on deals for products it knows people are going to buy.
Whatever you need, be it toilet paper, garbage bags, or Bounty paper towels, Amazon is sure to have some good discounts on Prime Day.
Better Smells: Cleaning Supplies
Amazon has such a huge supply of cleaning supplies it's hard to narrow it down. Honestly, if you're looking to restock, you should probably make a list of the brands and bottles you've got that you need to replace. These are the easy deals for Amazon. The people behind Prime Day know stuff like cleaning supplies are the things people will buy a ton of when the prices are down. And they're right. Get ready to save at least a few bucks on just about everything you use for cleaning.
And I do mean everything! Microfiber cleaning cloths, shampoo and conditioner, Mr. Clean Magic Erasers, Febreze air fresheners, Cascade dishwasher detergent, Seventh Generation laundry detergent, and more. We've seen all these, plus dozens of other products, drop in price at some point in the last year. It will happen again. Also, don't forget Amazon has many exclusive brands like Presto! that cover cleaning supplies as well.
When Prime Day finally comes, we will be looking into the depths of thousands of deals. In cleaning supplies alone, we will see hundreds at least. Prepare yourself by keeping an eye on the brands and the supplies that matter most to you, like some free and clear Seventh Generation laundry detergent.
Back to School or Not: School and Office Supplies
Just because Prime Day happens in the middle of summer doesn't mean it's a bad time to start thinking about the new school year. I know, you've still got pool parties and concerts to go to. But you might as well stock up on the pens, notebooks, and other sort of supplies you know you'll need. And if school isn't an issue for you anymore, then maybe you could use some of these sorts of supplies around the office or for your home office.
So what are we talking about here? A broad range of items for sure! And we know a lot of these have gone on sale in the past, so they're very likely to do it again. Add a new fountain pen to your collection, an assortment of different colored permanent markers, or even some brush pens to express your artistic side.
Hook yourself up with a new travel tumbler so you can load up on coffee to start your day. Buy some Tile Bluetooth trackers so you never lose your keys again. Grab a new everyday carry pocket knife for opening packages, cutting paper, and doing so many other things.
These are the supplies you'll need to succeed at school, at work, or while working from home. Whatever your vocation these days, you're going to need pens and paper and that sort of thing. But there is no more useful a tool than the Swiss Army Pocket Knife. Just attach it to your key ring and you'll only use it when you really need it.
