When my little one made her debut into our life almost 2 years ago, she unknowingly (and in the sweetest of ways) turned our world completely upside down. Things got really real when my husband and I jumped into the wild ride of parenthood. All of your parents out there know exactly what I mean when I say having a baby makes things….different. It’s not just a few things in my life that changed. No, pretty much everything changed.
For example: When was the last time I went to the bathroom by myself? I literally have no recollection of that ever happening at all within the last month. When was the last time we got to watch a TV show or movie at home together uninterrupted? Probably when I was still pregnant. When was the last time I went to the grocery store without trying to tame a temper-tantrum on aisle 9? Couldn’t tell you. For real.
And even though I firmly believe that becoming a mother has brought out the best in me, it also has some webs that I get tangled up in from time to time – forgetfulness being the primary booger that I’m trying to deal with. Ever heard of mom-brain? I’ve got it, and I’ve got it bad. Needless to say, it’s not uncommon at all for me to forget what I’m doing. I’ll forget why I walked into a room several times a day. I’ll forget to take the laundry out of the washing machine that I put in there 3 days ago, and I way too often forget to stock up on certain household essentials before I completely run out. Heck, it’s not uncommon for me to forget my shopping list all together!
As if things weren’t crazy enough, just factor in the fact that I live approximately 30 minutes away from the nearest grocery store. Going “to town” as we call it is kind of a big deal. There are no “quick trips.” Traveling anywhere longer than 10 minutes with a kid who hates her car seat just ain’t pretty. Nothing fun about it.
That’s why shopping on Amazon is LIFE for me. Having an Amazon Prime account is such a no-brainer for my family. If I forget something when I run into town (which I do nearly every single time,) I’ll hop on Amazon.com and have it show up on my doorstep 2 days later. Badda bing, badda boom!
But would you believe me if I told you that ordering your favorite household necessities from Amazon just got even easier? Like, next to effortless? Well, friends, it has! With just one click, this tired, forgetful mama’s day just became much, much easier…and my sanity remained in check! Score!
Friends, let me introduce you to my newest weapon in my arsenal of mom-magic: The Amazon Dash Button
The Amazon Dash Button is a Wi-Fi connected device available only for Prime members that allows you to reorder certain items with just the press of a button. It is set up and managed through the Amazon App on your smartphone for your convenience, and sends an order confirmation straight to your phone once the button is pressed. Since rolling out 2 years ago, the selection of Amazon Dash buttons has grown to over 250 household items ranging from grocery supplies, beverages, personal care, pet essentials, and SO much more! When you notice you’re running low on a certain item in your home, no need to run to the store! Just press your Amazon Dash Button for that particular product and your order is placed!

The best part is that the Amazon Dash Button is essentially free! When you find the Amazon Dash Button that you’d like to order, you’ll pay $4.99 upfront. Once you place your first order using the button, you’ll have the $4.99 automatically deducted from your order total!
Here’s what showed up to my door this week BEFORE I ran completely out of the product: (Major happy dance happening right now!)
There’s nothing worse than running out of dish detergent, cuz honey help me if I had to actually wash a dish by hand! Ugh, I literally shudder at the thought. (I know that sounds a little petty, but I’m just being real here!) That being said, I was beyond thrilled to see a Cascade Amazon Dash Button available! Amazon Elements Baby Wipes are our jam in this house. Our adorable little mess maker has us going through wipes in no time flat. I keep a package in just about every room of the house, so we reorder them like crazy! Having these things literally come to me with the press of a button is like living in a dream world. Amazon Dash Buttons are rocking my world, y’all!
And how in the world could I get by without my beloved Batiste dry shampoo? Where are my fellow ladies who rock the yoga pants with a dry shampooed top knot bun and a coffee in one hand on the daily? Holla atcha girl! 😉
Each Amazon Dash Button comes with a peel and stick mounting option or a hanging option, so you can place the buttons wherever they’re most convenient for you! I placed my Cascade button on my refrigerator, my Amazon Elements Baby Wipes button in the nursery, and my Batiste dry shampoo button in my bathroom where I could easily press it as soon as I notice I’m running low. Easy peasy!
By the way, no need to worry about little hands pressing/playing with the button and ordering the product without you knowing. Since an order confirmation is sent directly to your phone, you’re able to view when it’s been pressed and cancel any unverified orders. Plus, you can’t place another order until the product has been shipped, which is a really nice feature to have in place!
Thanks to these handy dandy Amazon Dash Buttons, my trips to the store are less frequent, my forgetfulness has no victory over me, my life has become much more simplified, and my sanity has been saved. Who knew such a tiny little button could have such a BIG impact?! If someone told you that you could simplify your life like this with the click of the button, I’m absolutely certain you’d want to hop on that train! Check out the Amazon Dash Button and all it has to offer. You’re going to want them all! 😉
