Help me life hack my Crohn's..... coping strategies, please

This forum is full of mental coping strategies and that's great, but I don't need those. Can you suggest little changes you've made to keep yourself fed/sheltered/warm & clean on your zero-energy and pain-filled days/weeks/months? Here are the things I do, but I know there's more:

* automate EVERYTHING. bills, prescription refills, house appliance maintenance.

* take full advantage of the internet age. Amazon Prime sends me toothpaste and paper towels and dog food automatically and monthly. Grocery delivery, when I can afford it, is amazing.

* if I feel good enough to cook, I cook extra and freeze it.

* if I feel shitty but I'm still hungry, I order extra delivery food and eat the same thing for days.

* I make smoothies with all the vegetables and fruit I was too tired to cook up before it goes bad.

*I gave up on housework SO long ago. I have no problem trading money for house cleaning when I really must, though.

tell me more! ready go.

You sound incredibly organised already! Even when I'm feeling bad I can usually get out the house (so long as there are toilets wherever I'm going of course) and I eat out in a cafe that does simple homestyle food like cheese on toast or scrambled egg on toast rather than bother cooking at home.
