One, I am ridiculously vigilant about changing our toothbrushes very regularly. For a variety of reasons. And even more often when someone has been sick. And well, just ick. One of my germophobe tendencies that I make no apologies for. *And besides me being a weirdo about this, the American Dental Association says you should change your toothbrush every three months anyway.
And two, I am all for convenience.
If there is a way to combine those two things? I’m on it like white on rice.
I am a big fan of automation. Of things magically being taken of without me even having to think about it. Or order it. Or go get it. No second thoughts, ever.
More ways to make life easier? Puh-leeze. And sign me up.
I have a list of items that I “subscribe and save” to on Amazon. I set how often we need it, and they magically ship it to me on that schedule without me ever reminding them (perfect for things like vitamins, for example). My contact lenses? I have that on automatic shipment too (and one of these days, I’m going to write a post all about it). Every four months, a new package arrives on my doorstep with new fresh lenses, and I didn’t have to think twice about it.
So when I was able to combine the magic of automation with my penchant for changing our toothbrushes on the regular?
You didn’t need to ask me twice.
Forget the fact that it’s ridiculously inexpensive to boot.
That’s just like the icing on the proverbial cake.
Or the toothpaste on my delivered-to-my-door toothbrush.
And that’s why I’m telling you about this Floss and Brush joint.
You tell them how many people are in your household. And they will send you, monthly, a package with a toothbrush and dental floss for each person.
$1 per month per person.
Now being that I am a extreme couponer, I will tell you that since we replace our toothbrushes often, I know the cheapest I can get a brand toothbrush for is 88 cents.
With this program, you’re getting the toothbrush *and* the floss delivered to your door for a buck ($1 shipping per brush, but if you have a family of three or more, it’s free shipping).
I don’t know of a better deal going.
And that, my dear folks, concludes today’s Public Service Announcement.
Oh … well, almost! How about you winning a one year package from them?!
I know. Awesomesauce.
