With concerns of coronavirus, people canceling trips and staying at home more than ever, using various auto-ship and delivery services can help minimize contact with germs. If you get the coronavirus and need to quarantine, using these types of services are also a great idea.
I have used all of these services to help manage a busy life and reduce time spent running errands. Seriously, coronavirus or not, these companies are services are GOLD for busy people. Automating and having things delivered can save you so much time and reduce your mental load. We never run out of household essentials because of services like the ones below.
