There are certain aspects of adulting that are hard for me. Like remembering to put gas in my car. Or remembering to buy toilet paper. I'm a huge fan of Amazon Prime and they've got an ingenious little device that let's you stick a button right where you need it . . . and press when you need a refill.It's like a tampon/toilet paper/coffee panic button. You can get a Dash button to help remember to reorder everyday items, from cleaning products to paper towels to trash bags. Wanna try some? They've got over 20 on sale today for .99 cents. Use the code DASHMOMS at this link: http://bit.ly/yaydash

Check out The House in theaters nationwide on 6/30. #ad
