Just say "Alexa, reorder oatmeal"
Since Alexa knows your order history, she'll ask if you want to buy the same oatmeal you previously ordered. Say "Yes," and your favorite oatmeal will be on its way! In place of oatmeal, insert any item you typically reorder on Amazon.
After a season of eating and family-ing, my cabinets (and my energy) are a little drained -- using Alexa to help restock has been so easy. If you don't already use Alexa to do your reordering on Amazon, I highly recommend giving it a try today!
Do This Now: Be sure you have voice purchasing set up in the Alexa app before firing off your reorders. In the Alexa app, tap/click on the hamburger icon in the upper left corner > Settings > Account Settings > Voice Purchasing and toggle on Purchase by Voice.
Pro Tip: In order to place orders on Amazon with simple Alexa commands, you'll need an Amazon Prime membership and updated 1-Click settings (if you've ever used the "Buy Now" button in the Amazon app, that means you're all set with 1-Click settings).
3 things you should always reorder with Alexa:
Pro Tip: Got mischievous little ones? Avoid sneaky sweets purchases from your other household shoppers by requiring a 4-digit voice code to confirm Amazon purchases and payments. You'll see this option when following the steps to enable Voice Purchasing shown in "Do This Now" above.

- Non-perishable food. Coffee, coconut water, canned goods -- even your vitamins
- Kid supplies. Diapers, hand sanitizer, sunscreen and everything else you need
