What We Don't Like Two-day delivery. Only one brand available per button. This is a Dash button that’s exceptionally useful simply because of what it is and where you’re likely to be when you realize you need it. One of these mounted under your bathroom sink means you don’t have to remember you’re a roll away from crisis and ensure that you’re never without a roll when you need it. There are a handful of different Dash buttons available for toilet paper brands. 02 of 13 Diapers Amazon What We Like Conveniently place near the changing table. Ideal for parents who prefer one brand. What We Don't Like One brand per button. Easily lost in a nursery. New parents know exactly how fast you can go through packs of diapers. If you don’t have diapers on constant reorder (with a stockpile sitting around just in case), then a Dash button can be a great thing to mount next to the changing table. We all know diaper changing can be . . . an ordeal. With a Dash button, you can focus on your little one, and avoid a panicked call to friends asking for emergency provisions. 03 of 13 Baby Wipes Amazon What We Like Place button near the changing table. Conveniently order when supply is low. Amazon brand saves money. What We Don't Like Easy to lose buttons in the nursery. Two-day delivery can leave you in a bind. Right up there with the immediate need for diapers is the one for baby wipes. Do yourself a favor and pick up one of these as well so you can handle shopping for both with the press of a button. 04 of 13 Ziploc Bags Amazon What We Like Convenient to place in pantry. Quickly order your preferred brand. What We Don't Like Only one brand per button. Need network connection in kitchen. In general, plastic bags are something most of us go through relatively slowly, slowly enough that you can remember to pick up a box at the store before you run completely out. If you're someone that’s regularly packing lunches; however, then chances are good that you go through bags a little faster than the average person. For you, there’s a Dash button. Put this one in your pantry. 05 of 13 Greenies Amazon What We Like Easy to keep near dog food supply. Free shipping for Prime members. What We Don't Like Only orders Greenies brand.

Just don't leave it near speedy paws that could reorder all on their own. 07 of 13 Red Bull Amazon What We Like Place near fridge for fast orders. Perfect for Red Bull customers. What We Don't Like Might require adhering a fridge magnet. Convenience could encourage excessive consumption. Everyone needs a boost of energy now and then. Harried parents can stash one of these in a dresser drawer. And college students everywhere need one of these buttons in their dorm room. Those of us that have a little trouble making it to those group dinners and the like after a long day at work could probably benefit as well. 08 of 13 Tampons Amazon What We Like Conveniently place in the bathroom. Avoid having to purchase at a store. What We Don't Like Only one brand per button. Not suitable if needs vary. You only need them once a month, but when you need them you often really need them and somewhat unexpectedly. Depending on how things went the month before, you may or may not have reserves ready to go. And if you’re not in an immediate need of tampons, chances are very good you’re not going to remember to buy them. Stash this in the bathroom so you can reorder the next time you're running low. 09 of 13 Dial Hand Soap Amazon What We Like Perfect for fans of Dial. Place near sink for easy orders. What We Don't Like Limited to Dial brand. Danger of dropping button in water. Hand soap is another thing many tend to unexpectedly run out of. Who keeps reserves?

What We Don't Like Danger of losing button in the trash. One specific item per button. Chances are good you can remember to put kitchen garbage bags on the grocery list on the fridge when they run out, but what about all the trash cans you have elsewhere in your house? This Dash button can be customized with a particular type of bag, and then orders can be made with the press of a button. For instance, you could have one in the garage to reorder leaf bags, or in the bathroom to get some new tiny bags for that trash can. 13 of 13 Underwear Amazon What We Like Slip button inside underwear drawer.
