We got a big “Subscribe and Save” haul this month! Lots of essentials for all four DeSpains, and we saved a healthy chunk of change, too!
Keep in mind that when you see the price below for what we paid from Amazon, that that’s before tax and includes my 15% discount (because I bought more than five items) plus any coupons that I clipped. Just wanted to explain why the price I paid may look different than what the listing currently says. If you decide to try out Subscribe and Save, you’ll see your final price during checkout after all codes and discounts have been applied.
So, here’s how Amazon’s Subscribe and Save program works, just to catch you up.
Because I receive more than five items per month, I qualify for 15% off almost all of my items. If you also want to order any of the items that I’ll list below, here’s how to do it.
- Click the item and clip any coupons. The price you see will go down at checkout depending on if you qualify for the 15% discount (by having more than five items per month).
2. Make sure the Subscribe & Save option is highlighted.
3. Select your quantity and frequency. Keep in mind that this can be changed or canceled any time (I change my orders all the time depending on what I need).
4. Click “Confirm Subscription”. You should see if you qualify for the 5% or 15% discount and the price you will be charged once your order ships.
5. To keep track of your Subscribe & Save items, go to “Accounts and Lists” on the homepage and then “Your Subscribe and Save Items”.
6. Edit, skip, or cancel subscriptions up until about 10-14 days before your items arrive.

Here’s what’s we got!
Healthy Skoop Breakfast Protein All-in-One Organic Nutritional Shake with Plant-Based Protein and Fiber, Chocolate, 14.5 oz: I usually eat yogurt or eggs for breakfast, but our mornings have been busier lately and I find myself wanting something faster. I saw this powder had a nice discount code, so I gave it a go. I’ve been mixing it this week with water in my blender cup, and I like it! I will definitely order again. I think it would taste really good blended with almond milk and a frozen banana too. (20% off coupon still available; Don’t forget to clip it!)

Hi! I’m Erica, and I absolutely adore sharing my life on this website with you! I come here almost daily to blab about all of the things related to being a regular wife and mother in today’s ever-evolving society. I share about our new home, what’s on our kitchen table, what we’re hanging in our closets, where we’re traveling to next, my crazy 5 a.m. work outs, how I make time for girlfriends, our faith, and much more. We always have a lot of balls in the air and somewhat thrive on the chaos. I believe in the power of story-telling as a form of inspiration and entertainment, so I’m here to do both! I was born and raised in north Alabama and recently re-planted roots here again after my husband transitioned out of the Army (he is now in the Reserve and it’s going so well!) I’m a super proud mom to three little girls (ages 7, 4, and 1) who seem to be the stars of the show around here (for good reason – they’re pretty great!) I’m so glad you found me and are here reading! I hope we can get to know each other here on the blog as well as Facebook and/or Instagram. xoxo
