I'm sure you know the weather has been brutal for much of the country this week. Some places dipped down to nearly 60 degrees below zero with the wind chill factor. Yikes!

Would you even leave your house when it's that cold outside? Probably not, unless of course you just had to make it into work. But you definitely don't want to have to head to the store, especially for smaller household items.

That's why it's a good idea to stock up on some of the everyday household essentials. And guess what, Amazon can help you with that.

Household items you can order from Amazon

Whenever you're thinking about doing some online shopping, Amazon is probably the first site that comes to mind. But robot vacuum cleaners, Instant Pots, and wireless headphones aren't the only things you can find to buy on the site.

It also carries those items that you use every single day. Here are a few things that you might want to stock up on for those times you can't make it out to the store.

Batteries, $23.50

How many times have you been flipping channels and wham, just like that, the remote loses its juice? And it's not just TV remotes these days. With so many electronics all around the house, you'll definitely need to replace batteries on a regular basis.

Check out this combo pack of Energizer batteries from Amazon. It has 24 AA and 24 AAA batteries, which is perfect since those are needed for tons of electronics.


Trash bags, $14.76

You'll be glad to have extra trash bags around from time to time. And these ones help fight those smelly odors.

Of course we're talking about the Glad OdorShield kitchen trash bags. They're designed with a drawstring that grips the can and Febreze Fresh Clean to keep things smelling nice.


Hand soap, $15.80

Now that you've taken care of the trash, don't forget to wash your hands. This Citrus Hand Soap will do just fine.

It's a moisturizing hand wash featuring aloe leaf juice. This soap is infused with natural emollients and antioxidants that will help leave your skin soft and smooth.


Dishwasher detergent, $13.86

This mega box of Cascade ActionPacs dishwasher detergent should help keep your cupboards full of clean dishes for a while. The super size package comes with 78 fresh scent ActionPacs.


Laundry detergent, $18.97

While you're in the cleaning mood, how about doing some laundry? These Tide PODS oughta do the trick.

Tide PODS pacs are small but powerful. They pack 10 times the cleaning power in an innovative, three chamber design separating key ingredients until they hit the wash for maximum cleaning power.

(Warning: Keep these out of the reach of children. Remember, there was that crazy Tide POD challenge last year that sent kids to the emergency room after eating them.)


Storage bags, $16.95

You need bags, Amazon has bags! And this Ziploc variety bag comes with a lot of them, 347 to be exact.


Bathroom essentials, $29.92 

This Charmin Ultra Soft pack contains 24 family mega rolls, which is equal to a total of 123 regular rolls. It's incredibly soft with a unique cushiony touch.


Facial tissues, $13.29

What's worse than not having some facial tissues around when you go on a sneeze attack? Pick up this multi-pack box of Kleenex and you won't have to worry about that problem anymore.

This set comes with eight boxes that include 130 Kleenex Ultra Soft tissues per pack. Perfect for keeping a box in every room of your house.


Disinfecting wipes, from $13.99

It's cold and flu season, yuck! A great way to avoid getting sick is to keep things super clean.

These Lysol disinfecting wipes will help. They disinfect and kill 99.9% of viruses and bacteria. And the lemon and lime blossom scent really freshens things up, too.


Picture and frame hanging strips, $15.99

Have you ever tried using these Command picture and frame hanging strips? They are the perfect way to hang stuff up without damaging the wall with a hammer and nails.
