…Like buying diapers.
Last night I was able to attend a networking event. I met a dad who, the minute he found out I was a dad, immediately said, “You use Amazon Prime, don’t you?”
I laughed and said, “of course! Who has time to make diaper runs after a ten-hour work day?”
As funny as it was having that conversation last night, more amusing was the timing of coming home today to my sister telling me “We’re going to be out of formula tomorrow.”
Then my wife came home and announced “we’re all out of eggs, tuna, and dried parsley.”
Because dried parsley is super high on dad’s priority list at the moment.
All of these needs, combined with our need to cook dinner, do a two-hour bedtime routine, and possibly see each other and catch up about work (my wife went back this week, she’s amazing).
All I could think to myself was
Thankfully, living in a major metropolitan city means I can jump on Amazon Prime and get free Next Day Delivery on our Gerber Good Start Gentle without breaking a sweat (or honking my car horn).
And yes, this blog may seem crafted to highlight those advantages for me, having made all of 61 cents from sharing this news. I hope you dads out there see this as an actual integral part of our lives – how to optimize our time & our money best for our families.
Tonight, in an effort to save and optimize our time even more, I spent five minutes exploring Amazon‘s Subscription features. Subscribing to bunny litter & food, diapers, formula, and a ream of paper every month saved me an additional 20% on those purchases.
Remember, this is on top of the gas, parking (it is Los Angeles after all), and most importantly time spent dashing after these things when we notice we are running low.
So take advantage of my 30-Day Amazon Prime Free Trial if you need, or just sign right up for yourself. Whether I get your click or not, you’ll be grateful for how it makes you look to your wife and kids:
