Trying to stay fully stocked on household essentials can be quite the game of strategy — it seems like every time you finally restock your toilet paper, you run out of paper towels two days later. (Don't even get us started on finishing the shampoo and conditioner.) So if there were a way to make our lives a little easier and cross a few things off of our shopping list without leaving the couch, why not do it?

This is why we can't get enough of Amazon's Subscribe & Save service, which gives you the opportunity to set up automatic shipments of your go-to household essentials directly to your home every one to six months, for a discount. That means you can get new sponges on your doorstep right when your current one starts to feel gross or a cat food shipment every time your supply starts to run low. Even just one subscription can save you 5%, but if you get five or more products delivered to the same address in one month, you can save up to 15%. Plus, if you're an Amazon Prime member, you can save up to 20%. (Honestly, it's a no-brainer.)

To help you save even more time, we've rounded up 15 of our favorite Amazon Subscribe & Save picks to help you keep your home in tip-top shape. We did the math on these products alone and using the Subscribe and Save feature would save you up to $200 a year. Sure, that's not life-changing, but think of the home decor you could have bought instead!
