Why Does Anyone Use Anything Other Than Amazon Prime Pantry To Shop For Groceries?

October 21, 2019 Updated February 22, 2020


Making my way up and down the aisles to find my favorite stuff used to be a guilty pleasure. I’d check out new brands, look for hidden deals, read the ingredients, enjoy the supermarket soundtrack…the whole thing. 

Aaaaaand then I had kids. Now I just try to get in and out before my son has a(nother) meltdown against a backdrop of canned goods.

Which is why I’m now in love with Amazon Prime Pantry

It’s everything I love about Amazon — thousands of products delivered in just a few days, and the ability to shop braless and pantsless from my couch — for everyday essentials like groceries and household stuff. It’s a convenience store that’s actually convenient, because it’s not a store.

Cool…but that’s basically just Amazon, right? Shop online for shit that I need, and get it delivered. So what’s the big deal? Here it is: With Prime Pantry, unlike regular Amazon, you can buy single items, and not be locked into a giant 24-pack of hand soap that will take you about 3 years to go through.

Pretty much anything that comes in a bag, can, bottle, or jar is available. Groceries, snacks, beauty, household cleaners, etc. They even have tons of organic stuff, if that’s your thing, with Whole Foods’ 365 Everyday Value brand.

If you’re a Prime member and you spend $35 on your order (ummm, yeah…that won’t be a problem), shipping is free. ($5.99 for non-Prime members.) Plus, there’s a “deals” page that highlights the biggest savings and best values. And nothing gets me going like a good deal!

Speaking of which, you can get $10 off your first Amazon Prime Pantry order of $40 or more right now, with the code WELCOME10. The offer ends on 11/16. If you are already a member you can get up to 15% off your Prime Pantry Order and there are always other deals happening so see current ones at

It has literally changed my life. Not in a Kim K “literally” way. I mean, like, literally. It’s given me back time, taken away stress, and made at least one small part of my life hassle-free. Now if I could just get someone to that with all the other parts…
