We asked Between Carpools readers…what do you love to buy on Amazon? Here’s a roundup of your recommended basic items and household necessities.


Lots of you use the convenience of Amazon, not just for one-time purchases, but for day-to-day basics. Here’s some of your favorite everyday items that you get delivered to your door…and many via Subscribe and Save!


If you’re not familiar with Subscribe and Save, Amazon offers a greater discount on some items that you use and need often (i.e. diapers). You’re eligible for the discount if you “subscribe” to a number of items (you can choose how often you want them).

  1. I fourth!! Does anyone have a front loader that actually cleans the clothes? I feel like my machine doesn’t do a good job.

  2. The way to take care of a front loader gasket: wipe the gasket clean after every load – inside, under and all around. & alsways leave the door open until the machine and gasket is dry.
