So I've opted to just bulk-buy them from Amazon to save me the extra legwork – and Amazon Prime Day is even more reason for me to stock up while I can.

Why should I bulk-buy from Amazon?

Amazon is a great retailer if you're looking to bulk-buy your household items as their pricing typically gives you more value for money than other warehouses. Not only that, but they also have a 'Subscribe & Save' option that will guarantee you exclusive lower pricing when you schedule repeat deliveries, ranging from every 2 weeks to every 6 months.

For most items, you can save 5% upon initial purchase and up to 15% when you schedule 5 or more repeat deliveries to one address – meaning you can save even more money and save yourself the hassle of checking out every time.

How do I get started with Amazon's Subscribe & Save?

When you browse through your typical household items, before you 'Add to Basket' you should see a tab for 'Subscribe & Save'. Simply select how often you want your deliveries scheduled and click 'Set Up Now'.

Amazon will send you a reminder before each delivery and you can choose to skip or cancel at any time with no fees. Delivery is free on all repeat deliveries, however, do note that non-Prime members may incur a fee for their first subscription delivery.
