Giveaway: Win a $50 Shopping Credit on Hoseanna!

I’ve blogged about Hoseanna before, but the site (and business) has undergone some major changes since then! To celebrate the new site and categories, Hoseanna is offering a special prize to Corporette readers — a $50 shopping credit on Hoseanna, good for all your ‘Monthly Musts’!

As a quick reminder (I’ll do a full site review next week), this is a cool new site for women that is premised on the idea that, while the shopping/browsing experience is fun, sometimes busy women just want things to be auto-shipped. Accordingly, you can sign up at Hoseanna to have hosiery, feminine products, health & beauty supplies, and even intimate supplies automatically delivered to your door on a regular basis.  The brands are all curated, and the prices are reasonable.

The Rules: Comment on this post (including your email address in the “email address field”), telling us ways you like to automate your life (whether it’s through shopping deliveries, bill payments, or other ways). The winner will be announced on Tuesday, October 31.  You must include your email in the email address field so you can be contacted by Kat in the event you win the giveaway.  Your information will be held in confidence by Corporette pursuant to The Corporette Privacy Policy, and you will only be contacted by Kat in the event you win the giveaway.

  1. I hope I win!

  2. I have automatic monthly payments set up for a couple of charities I support. I think it must help them with their budgeting, it certainly helps my budget to give a little each month instead of dropping jumbo checks at weird intervals, and I don’t forget! Bonus: when you get your tax receipt at the end of the year, it’s a nice “surprise” to see how it all adds up :)

  3. I would love to automate clothes shopping- just give someone my size and the look I’m going for and have someone else fight the mall crowd!

  4. Krista M. :

    I use Door to Door organics to deliver fruits and veggies and often order my groceries online to have them delivered. Also have my public radio contributions on automatic monthly payments.

  5. I automate all of my banking/paycheck stuff. Paycheck goes in automatically and everything else, phone, gym membership, bills, goes out automatically. Makes life run so much smoother!

  6. I used to automate bill payments, but after getting married my husband un-automated them! Now he does them by hand. Ha!

  7. Yay – I love your giveaways! and Hoseanna’s autoshipping sounds like a great idea.

  8. Anonymous :

    I automate my bill payments that are the same each month!!

  9. BeBeLawyer :

    Does US Weekly count?

    Google reminders to pay the bills I can’t automate, everything else (including student loans) automated. Pre-pay the gym for better rate.

  10. Anon in NY :

    Newbie to automated purchases. Made my first automated toothbrush subscription/purchase this weekend. It will be a great reminder for me and my hubby of when it is time to change brushes!

  11. I get cereal and oatmeal automatically delivered to me using Amazon Subscribe & Save. I always have breakfast on hand!

  12. Automated student loan payments (and a monthly calendar reminder just to make sure I don’t forget all about them).

  13. I do all my bill-paying automatically, and I also have my dry cleaning delivered to and picked up from my house (does that count)? Now that I’m pregnant with my first, I am considering signing up for Amazon Mom, which auto-ships your diapers and other baby needs! I would love to try out Hoseanna too!

  14. Automatic payments for almost all bills is a given for most people these days. My automatic bills include cell phone, daycare, netflix, and student loans. Other home-related bills are automatic through my husband’s bank. I also do automatic delivery of diapers, wipes, baby food, toilet paper, and some toiletries through Amazon… this has seriously saved my life as a new mom.

  15. MissJackson :

    I automate everything. Everything. Even bills that vary from month-to-month, I pick an average $ and automate the payment (I go in and edit the payment to the real amount every month — but if for whatever reason I forget to do so, I feel pretty confident that the electric company is not going to cut off my sevice because I’m $20 short so long as the money keep flowing). My savings is automated. My investments are automated. All of my subscriptions are on auto renew (AAA, SiriusXM, auto insurance, etc).

    I’m intrigued by the idea of toothbrush auto delivery that Anon in NY! Now, if someone could just remind me when it’s time to change the sheets. Or somehow force me to make (and keep) timely hair cut appointments? Pretty much everything non-automatic in my life is a tragic mess.

    • I mark on the calendar in my bedroom when I change the sheets, otherwise I can never remember how long they’ve been on!

    • I’m also intrigued by the toothbrush delivery idea. (What service do you use Anon in NY?) As for hair appointments, my solution is booking an entire year’s worth of appointments at once (I don’t change style too much during that year so that I don’t have to change the frequency) and then treating the time as sacred. I will change it if I’m on vacation, but other than that I need a really good reason to do so. The other advantage of this system (at least with my hair dresser) is that it is the only way to get Saturday morning appointments (or, when that doesn’t work, late Friday evening).

      • Anon in NY :

        I used Amazon’s subscribe and save feature for my toothbrushes. They delivered within 2 days of my order!

  16. i love auto bill pay. it’s so handy.

  17. Annabelle :

    I’d love to have groceries auto-delivered but the grocery store we regularly shop at canceled their delivery program a few months ago.

  18. karenpadi :

    What don’t I automate? Everything that can be automated is automated.

    I wish I could automate work-wear basics: black shoes and black/grey pants.

  19. I live by my Outlook calendar. If it weren’t for those 15 min prior meeting reminders, I’d be late to everything.

  20. I automate nearly everything – love the ease and keeps me from accruing finance charges (by making sure everything gets paid on time).

  21. Yay! They ship to Canada for a flat fee! Is it too much to hope they cover duty as well?

    I can’t live without Outlook reminders or the Stickies application on my Mac. I have it set to open automatically when I log in so I cannot avoid my to-do lists.

    But by far the most important automation in my life is the automatic weekly mortgage payment that comes out of my bank account. I love not having to think about it, and I love that making weekly payments reduces my overall payment term. Yay.

  22. I automate all my mortgage, car payment, and college savings and daycare tuition payments for my kids – basically anything that’s the same amount every month.

  23. I am all about anything that would make my poor student life easier. I always seem to find myself looking for hosiery the day before I have a networking event.

  24. I auto-draft utility payments and TV. The new iphone reminders will likely be helpful to remember to do things that occur on a monthly basis too!

  25. I automate in every way possible – bills, everything. I used to have groceries delivered, and will probably do so again once I have the $$.

  26. I automate all bill payments, in part because I might forget, but mostly because I never have stamps or can find a mailbox. So I end up carrying envelopes around for weeks.

  27. Need a screen name :

    I automate payments that are the same every month, savings and investments. I tried Door to Door Organics for vegetable delivery, but couldn’t make it work with someone having to be home during the day to sign for them. Sometimes, when I need the standard and heavier household items, I put in a Peapod order.

  28. I automate my loan and insurance payments – so nice! And I love mint.com for automating my budget – only little things to do.

    Love this giveaway!

  29. First time commenting here. What do you feel about wearing a red dress to work? I have this red dress that I want to wear on weekdays but a bit hesitant that it will look a bit too much (but then again, that is what red dresses are for!).

    It’s more of an orangey-reddish sheath dress, cut 2 inches above the knee. I am 5’4, 105 lbs, quite skinny so I’m pretty sure I wouldn’t look va-va-voom with it on.

    I’m wondering what you guys think if you see a co-worker rocking a red dress to work?

    • I would think that she’s awesome. If you are feeling hesitant, I suggest wearing a charcoal, navy or chocolate sweater/cardigan/jacket over the sheath dress to tone down the red (not black, that’ll make the red pop). Also, breaking out with this type of color is easier to do in the summer but I’d still wear something that bright in the fall. Go for it!

    • Do you often wear bright colors to work? If you don’t, it might get noticed more because it is unusual for you, but if you do, go for it! I like Ru’s suggestion of pairing it with charcoal.

    • MissJackson :

      I have a conservative red sheath that I wear to work frequently.

    • I have a red wool sheath dress that I wear to work. Sometimes I put a coordinating, striped button-down blouse underneath.

  30. I automate my laundry – it is picked up once a week and dropped off by a local laundromat. If it weren’t for them, I’d always be running out of clean clothes. (In case you couldn’t tell, I live in NYC so laundry in apartment is a luxury :-)

  31. Bills, banking, mortgage, like others have said above. But also? Nespresso.

    Yum, tasty caffeine!

  32. Now that I’m out of school and having a regular job with regular paychecks, I’m starting to automate most static bills, like cable, phone, and student loans. I’m also automatically transferring money every month from my checking account to my ING savings account. There are so many more things I’d like to automate, like household goods and personal items. I’m starting to use Amazon’s Subscribe and Save on things that I know I buy on a regular basis.

  33. I automate cell phone bills, netflix, cable and savings from one checking account to another. Just signed up for retirement thingamajig, so that’s automatic, too.

    I have to be careful with this automatic stuff…I just opened up a cell phone bill and saw that they’re charging insurance for one phone (that I didn’t sign up for) and that they messed up billing for one month on another account. ARgh.

  34. I auto my charitable donations. I find that when I give $20 a month to each org, I give more throughout the year than if I give one check at the end of the month (less of a shock to my bank account as well).

    I also love remember the milk and the daily, weekly, monthly, quarterly, yearly reminders that tell me to do things. That’s automated, right? Ie I put in change air filter, change toothbrush, change mascara, give dog medicine, all on the time schedule that is appropriate to the task.

  35. I just moved from Chicago, where I had on automate my grocery shopping through Peapod. I sure do miss them. Time and money saver! They would show up every two weeks on Saturday morning, and I even had a regular shopping list.

  36. Kimberly A. :

    My husband and I now outsource/ automate everything dealing with our home (both of us are lawyers in Atlanta). We have a maid that does everything around the house, a yard company, and a dry cleaners that delivers and picks-up twice a week. I wish Peapod was in the suburbs because that is the only errand I have to run on a regular basis.

  37. I automate all my bill payments. It’s nice to know it’s done and I don’t have to worry about it.

  38. I automate DH’s paychecks as he travels often, usually internationally, for long time periods. Sigh – miss him so – one coming up soon. Our sprinkler system automates most plant care for us (Orchids and Tropicals) and lawn maintenance – except we’re on water rationing now due to a drought – but it’s still automated…no midnight watering by hand for me!

    Other than that, my brain automates alot of tasks…

    Towels washed on Tuesdays, Toilets cleaned on Tuesdays
    Laundry (rest of it) on Saturdays
    Sunday groceries/target after the gym
    Bills pay and filing on Sundays too (we have had credit card hacking recently from the internet so continue our resolve not to pay bills on line) … don’t know, might have come through Amazon … only way we think someone got the cc info AND our mailing address…in process

    Similar slate of office/corporate tasks by day of week or monthly (I run my own Corp, just me).

  39. Sorry if this is TMI – but the only way I can remember to take my BC pill is with daily automatic calendar reminders on my phone. I have been using this system for over 7 years and have only forgetting on days when my phone was dead. I have a word pop up on my screen that only I would recognize it as a pill reminder, just to be sure my nosey coworker doesn’t see “pill” on my phone screen.

  40. I automate savings. Otherwise it’s too easy to spend the money!

  41. Michelle V. :

    My iPhone automates almost everything for me and puts them in one place, reminders for bill payments, checking account balance, appointments, etc.

  42. I automate my donations to nonprofits.

  43. I work crazy hours from 7:30 am to 7:30 pm, by time I get home at 8:30 I grab some food and crash! On the weekends I teach at Church so I only have time to do lesson plans. I could never keep track of my bills, or making sure there is enough toilet paper lol! I need things at my door so I don’t have to leave my door.

  44. AnonInfinity :

    I automate all of my bills. I need to automate groceries and dry cleaning. We seem to always run out.

  45. Love internet shopping

  46. shortlegsneedstyletoo :

    Groceries, Dog Food, and Housekeeping! If someone would take of those for me, I’d have plenty of free time and no more stress.

  47. Now that I have two kids, I automate everything I can. All of our bills and student loan payments are autmated. We use peapod for grocery delivery (which has an ipad app and keeps all of your recently ordered items in a list, so i can literally grocery shop in 10 minutes); diapers.com for diapers and other baby supplies, and soap.com for detergent etc (both of which also keep your past orders so you can re-order in a snap). We use a cleaning lady twice a month, which means I never have to do the big cleaning items. And I have even started using Fresh Diet — which delivers freshly made, pre-portioned, 40/30/30 food for the entire day to you door each morning. And while I can automate my workouts, have have started putting them in my Outlook as an appointment to help me get there more often.

  48. I automate almost all of my bills, buy groceries online, and am considering having core staples (toilet paper, paper towels, etc.) auto-delivered as well! It would be fantastic to auto-deliver hose and beauty products!

  49. I automate my life with my to-do lists and calendars. If it’s not written down somewhere, it’s in one ear and out the other.

  50. i automate my calendar with reminders – google for personal and outlook for work; have all of my dry cleaning and tailoring delivered (love!) and have plenty of online alerts for all of my financial accounts.

  51. I automate as much as I can. My Amazon subscribe list is growing. It’s great for things like water filters that need to be replaced periodically.

  52. I automate deposits from my check into several ING subaccounts so I can automate saving for odd non-regular expenses (yearly auto insurance, next car, repairs on a rental property, etc). It makes it waaaay less painful to write a big check when you know the money is coming from an account that exists for that purpose. It keeps me from having money anxiety :)

    Next automation plans? Automatic cat feeder and litter box. Recommendations welcome.

    • Blonde Lawyer :

      For the cat feeder, go with one that does portion control, not just all you can eat buffet. The all you can eat buffet led me to a 19 pound diabetic cat :) He didn’t have the self feeder all the time but had found the 25 pound bag of cat food, chewed a hole in the side and was self feeding as much as he pleased. We also refilled his bowl whenever he cried and had the buffet style self feeder when we were away.

      Now he has portion controlled diabetic cat food and insulin shots! Learn from my mistake!

      For the litter box, do you have a dog walker or anyone else that comes to your house? My local dog walking service includes free litter scooping. They also have a litter scooping only service for people that can’t scoop.

      PS: my cat is doing much better with the pancreitis and eating his regular food now.

      • Poor cat- I’m glad he is doing better now! I wondered what would happen if my cat had access to limitless food, because it seems like that’s how some of the feeders work. I’ll take the warning.

        I have a cat sitter who I use when I travel, but I was thinking I’d like some kind of litter box that cleared out messes as they occur, just for odor control.

    • We have this one and it has served us well: http://www.amazon.com/Cat-Mate-C20-Automatic-Feeder/dp/B0013IX9YC/ref=sr_1_1?s=pet-supplies&ie=UTF8&qid=1319041907&sr=1-1
      I think we paid a lot less for it though.

  53. I love auto shipments. I have The Laundress laundry products auto shipped to me by Amazon. I never run out, never have to think about it (and my clothes look great,too!)

  54. I automatically transfer money into savings every paycheck! It keeps adding up without me even thinking about it!

  55. Working Mom :

    I automate bill pay for the credit cards. I would love to automate other things like packing the kids’ lunch or making my bed. :-)

  56. Amazon Mom — autoship diapers, wipes, etc. Best thing ever!

  57. I autopay for the ASPCA. I also have autoship for my coffee and for my vitamins. Obviously this means I have to think about a few less things and I am always stocked so I never have to make a trip for my “essentials” (vitamins and coffee, of course). I also like to use saved lists on sites like Peapod or even Amazon (I buy food items from Amazon) to help make finding my favorites quick.

  58. automatic shipments of coffee every month!

  59. automated shipments of coffee!

  60. Like many others here, we automate many of our bills. And we also get a box of veggies from our CSA on a biweekly basis. Works out very well!

  61. I automate bill paying through my checking account, health care reimbursement through my health savings account and house cleaning with a cleaning service who comes every two weeks. I also have a handyman who I trust who has a key and regularly checks in with me and I give him my up do date repair list.

  62. I automate bill payments. Have not used a stamp in a long time.

  63. I’d love to automate my billing, both those I pay and those I collect from my small business. Most of the bills I pay are automated, but some of my creditors are in the stone age and require me to go online each month to make payments.

  64. I use automatic payments for reoccuring bills. I also love that I can deposit checks to my bank through the IPhone – you simply take a picture of the front and back of the check and it automatically appears in my bank account — brilliant!

  65. I automate my savings through my 401k and now my iphone updates! I keep saying I’m going to automate my bills but I get such a sense of relief and satisfaction from actually making the payments myself.

  66. I would love to win! I use a CSA – you get veggies every week, and it definitely helps you cook healthy because you have the food on hand and you want to use it all up before it goes bad.

  67. I love autoship, autopay, auto-everything! I hate being late, but I have a horrible memory. My filofax is bursting at the seams with items I *must* remember so the more things I can automate, the more ordered and less frenzied my life feels.

  68. I like automating my life by receiving mail electronically. I have everything in one place and I don’t have to worry about shredding things with my name on it.

  69. Bill paying. I would love to have automated grocery delivery — but I need to re order on the Safeway delivery site — its one step shy of automated.

  70. I love my automatic bill pay and automatic monthly donations to NPR!

  71. Like many others, I automate all of my banking and bill payment.

  72. I do my bills automatically, and my dentist is very high tech so all my apts. are automatic too which is awesome!

    Hoseanna looks like a great time saving website- thanks for sharing it!

  73. I do bill payments and that stuff. But it is the automated reminders of birthday and anniversaries and such that is a real life saver.

  74. Charity comes out automatically, and every other thursday a box of produce shows up at my doorstep. I get emails from each reminding me that it happened/is happening, but I don’t have to DO anything. Genius.

  75. I automate all my banking and payment things much like a lot of ladies here. I have yet to automate food items just because sometimes I like to browse and be spontaneous.

  76. Gooseberry :

    Busy women unite! I am trying desperately to get away from the “I can do it all” mentality because, guess what, I have no time to do it all. So, if I can automate the things I do on auto-pilot anyway, I have the satisfaction of checking off those “to-do’s” (shaving cream, purchased! stockings, check!) without having to run around to three different stores. Sounds almost like cheating, in the best way!

  77. I only automate a few bills – gym membership, subscriptions to magazines, etc. Everything else, I like to see it before I pay it.

  78. MeliaraofTlanth :

    I automate all my bills/banking stuff. I need to look into if Fresh Direct does an automated thing, because I basically place the same grocery order on the same day every week from them.

  79. I automate payment of my mortgage and student loans!

  80. I don’t think I’d still have a roof over my head, a phone or a semi-stocked fridge if it wasn’t for automated bills and automated deliveries/refills. All my bills are automated, from the obvious (mortgage, phone, electricity, transfer to savings/investments/pension accounts, charities, magazines, prescriptions, etc) to some of my make-up (automated refills) and toiletries/household items (shared between drugstore.com and alice.com), organic veggies/fruit box, and lastly and most importantly: my monthly spa visit – same time/day every month and automatically paid on the first of the month…I think all I need to get is an toothbrush subscription (thanks Anon in NY for that suggestion) and I’m set!

  81. I’m an avid scrapbooker, so I’ve joined a ton of scrapbook of the month clubs that send me monthly kits of supplies to use : -)

  82. Anon in the Midwest :

    My drycleaning pick up/delivery is automated. Love it!

  83. Cats Ahoy! :

    My favorite automated purchase is the monthly refill for my faucet-mounted water filter. I get it through Amazon and it’s less expensive than buying it in a store or even the one-time purchase price through Amazon! I should do this with cat litter, too.

  84. I automate my life in different ways. I have prescriptions automatically charged to my credit card. I order groceries from Fresh Direct, where I am able to use a standing weekly appointment. There are always so many ways to automate!

  85. My favorite way to automate is to order beauty collections from QVC. Every few months, I get to replenish my set of products and each delivery includes all the new colors of the season!

  86. freshdirect, amazon subscriptions to energy drinks, etc.

  87. As a busy college student who is taking classes, working, and is also the president of my sorority, the easier things are the better! Although it’s difficult for me to automate a lot of my purchases and expenses, I’d love to be able to automate my bills and many of my purchases!

  88. I think I’d like laundry to be automated. I hate doing laundry… especially dry cleaning.

  89. Gooseberry :

    I’m all for autopilot! While I wish I could perfectly manage every part of my life with grace under fire, the truth is, if something can just get put on auto-pilot, or auto-ship, or auto-pay, I’m for it! It’s one less thing I have to do, which leaves a smidge of time for all the things I WANT to do! Hooray for Hoseanna!

  90. Kelci Lanich :

    I love automatic e-bills! They make this not-so-fun aspect of live mindless! I also love the auto refill option of my contacts! It’s nice to have someone else keeping track of your to-do list.

  91. I love automated stuff for the mundane tasks in life! It allows me to spend quality time thinking or doing the stuff I love, like hugging my kids more or having date night with my hubby….hmmm.. if I had to choose between buying hosiery vs. canoodling ….canoodling every time ;)

    I look forward to checking out Hoseanna!

  92. Bill paying and necessity product auto-shipments whenever I can, of course. The most hands-down lifesaving (or at the very least, face-saving) automated blessing is pre-paying and scheduling flower shipments once a year and never having to panic that I’ve forgotten. I can also adjust some in case something new comes up.

  93. Elizabeth :

    I use autopay for student loans. This site looks awesome!

  94. I have auto-debit on my checking account for most of my bills, including my credit card payment. Not having to worry about paying my student loans, cable, heat, electricity, etc on time is really nice. Though I realize that I am very lucky to operate on enough of a cushion that, no matter the time of month, the automated withdrawal doesn’t put me in danger of an overdraft.

  95. I consider my CSA weekly delivery automation. Someone else picks and packs the veggies, and that more or less determines my meal planning for the next week, too. This wouldn’t be for everyone but for me, it works wonderfully–I eat more healthfully and with more variety. And I feel good about supporting a truly local business.

  96. Paychecks and bills online.

  97. I just started a new job where I go to court almost every day, and automated hosiery delivery sounds awesome! I generally don’t automate bills because I like to be conscious of all the money that goes out. But, I have trained my fiance (a super morning person) to make daily wake-up calls to me (because I automatically turn off or ignore my alarms). Does that count?

  98. Business&LawStudent :

    I use automation for my schedule, certain bills, and – now – commodity shopping! This is such a fabulous idea; I can’t wait to start using it! If you think about it, automation is in so many parts of our lives (from food to bills) already, it’s about time commodities joins.

  99. I automate nearly everything — birthday flowers for my sister and mom, fruit of the month baskets for the in-laws, bill payments and direct deposit, personal care items delivered regularly from Amazon.com

    If I could automate picking an outfit every morning, that would be great!

  100. I automate my cell phone bill. These comments gave me ideas to make my life easier thanks!

  101. I use automatic bill payment to pay all my bills and it is so useful!

  102. One thing that has really helped me has been booking all of my medical appointments over a two day window. Each year, I take 2 days off in November and go for all my drs appointments (physical, gyn, derm, etc), dentist, eye doctor, etc. Planning it out this way has allowed me to just automatically rebook every year and saves a ton of time.

    I also set up yearly reminders for my mom’s Christmas gifts (she get’s a stack of magazines every year). This way, I auto-pay all of them and can reduce my shopping time!

  103. I autopay my bills, otherwise I would always be late. Just tend to forget. I would love to have groceries through automation!

  104. I love automatic bill pay — real life saver; I would love to try out Hoseanna!

  105. I, like almost everyone, automate my bill payments. I didn’t realize that you could automate so many other things until I looked at the comments here. Thanks for the advice, ladies!

  106. I auto-pay my student loans – that way I don’t have to focus on the heartbreak of seeing that huge line item every month.

  107. I automate… almost everything. Bills, charitable giving, deliveries of things like toothbrushes and hair products… the only thing I buy in a store is milk and produce. (and during the summer we have a CSA). I’d even automate more grocery delivery but I like to pick out my own produce. I already use Amazon and Alice.

  108. I automate my life by paying my bills on the same day every month. Thanks!!

  109. Katherine :

    I automate my groceries and bill payments. So easy!

  110. I am always looking for ways to cheat time. Thanks for sharing this idea – I’m looking forward to adding to my bag of tricks!

  111. I automated my life by learning how use Excel to automatically pull in data that I used to have to enter manually.

    I also have notices in my Outlook calendar very far in advance, sometimes on a recurring basis (like reminders to change the batteries in my smoke detect0r).

  112. I automate all of my bill payments — even my rent with my Chase’s online bill-pay function, which is really convenient for any bills that don’t accept online payments. So much easier than writing/mailing checks.

  113. I don’t, but it’s a good idea.

  114. Blakely Kute :

    I use automated bill payment, but sure am intrigued with automated shipping services!

  115. dancingbird :

    I automate lots of things – google calendar is one of my keys to staying organized. Beyond that, I’ve got online payments set up for bills – all the obvious ones from student loans to phones to internet to charitable gifts. On the latter, it saves me the hassle of all the renewal paper work and I know it saves the non profits administrative time. I’m just getting started with community supported agriculture and they’ll be delivering fresh produce to me once a week. I have a feeling this will be one of the best automated items in my life. I like to think that the time and money I save through automating tasks means I can give a little more to my favorite organizations, and have little more for myself to buy fun things like shoes :). Now if only I could automate my shoe organization, I’d be golden.

  116. I absolutely need to automate my bill payments- it is extremely frustrating when I forget to pay my bills.

  117. We’ve automated everything in this home! We auto-pay our bills and buy cosmetic goods and miscellaneous items via Amazon and Drugstore.com. We have saved a lot of money on shipping with Shoprunner and Amazon Prime. I even got rid of my paper magazine subscriptions and read them via Zinio now! I’m a big believer in living as efficiently as possible. Now, if someone could just deliver my groceries…
