Obviously, Amazon is a great starting point if you’re shopping from home. There are hundreds of thousands of items to choose from, but note that Amazon is temporarily prioritizing household staples, medical supplies and high-demand products until April 5, 2020.

Amazon generally offers 5% to 10% off for subscriptions.
Pet supplies are an often-overlooked necessity that many people forget about when they’re stocking up, but your companions need food, treats and maybe even a toy or two.
