If you are a regular reader here at Parent Palace, you know that I am a crazy-busy single working mom. And what mom ISN’T busy, am I right? Taking care of my daughters and my two dogs takes up pretty much all the time I have outside of work, so I am ALWAYS looking for a way to give them the best care that I can while saving as much time as possible.
One of the ways that I do this is through utilizing my Amazon Prime account to the fullest of its capabilities. I live in a somewhat rural area, and it is at least a 20 minute drive to get anywhere for more than the most basic of provisions. So I use Amazon quite a bit – whether its renting movies through my Roku, downloading books from my library, or using Prime Pantry to stock up on basics – Amazon and I are very good friends. That’s why I was super excited to give Amazon Subscribe & Save a try for dog food. Dog food is a HUGE pain when I’m by myself at the stores because the bags are so huge!
Amazon Subscribe & Save is great – I actually already used it for basics like pen refills, lightbulbs, and other things that I always forget to pick up at the store but use on a regular basis. Dog food is a NATURAL fit for Amazon Subscribe & Save- the dogs always eat and NO MORE HEAVY BAGS or special trips to the pet store!!)
I wanted to try out Purina® ONE® SmartBlend True Instincts Real Salmon and Tuna, along with some Purina wet dog food, which I like to mix in as treat! I’m going to show you how easy it is and then you can try for yourself with this AWESOME offer from Amazon Subscribe & Save – you can get $5 off your first order!
Signing up for Amazon Subscribe and Save is SO easy. You start by navigating to the product that you want, and decide how often you want deliveries. I decided to get Purina ONE SmartBlend every month, because my two dogs go through food pretty quickly.
Then, you just confirm your subscription, and go to the final screen to see how much you save. The REALLY cool part is in Step Four, when you can see how much your savings grow the more you subscribe! If you only want to subscribe to one product, you save 5%, but if you subscribe for five products, you save up to 15%, which is AWESOME for products delivered right to your door.
Just a few days after I subscribed, I got my first order! This was SO convenient – it came quick and well packaged, and saved me at least an hour running to the store – AND I saved, which is pretty awesome! Amazon Subscribe & Save = less paying and more playing! And Sunny and Oliver LOVED Purina One!
1. Use equipment that is in good condition. We use a harness with Sunny and Oliver so they can’t slip out. Always inspect your leashes, collars, and harness so they are in good condition. Even a well-behaved pet can bolt, and you don’t want your equipment breaking.
3. Follow all traffic rules, and consider the age and abilities of both your pet and your child before letting them hold the leash. Even though Sunny is bigger, she is much easier to walk and is better trained than Oliver, who can be a challenge. So even though she’s bigger, my younger daughter can safely hold Sunny’s leash. Just make sure that your child feels comfortable, and it’s always a good idea to keep close and remind your kids of safety rules, like looking before you cross the street.
4. Wear reflective gear if walking after dark. I don’t like to walk with our kids and dogs after dark – it’s harder to see sidewalks and it’s tough for other to see us, but if you are going to be out after dark, consider reflective vests and light up leashes.
So that’s how we spend OUR time that we save using Amazon Subscribe & Save! And it’s not just for dogs – there is Subscribe & Save for cats too! What products can you find on Amazon to Subscribe & Save to, so you can pay less and play more?
