The Future???

Years ago, I read a Science Fiction story about a future time when industrial robots produced all the goods and all the people had a daily income from the government. The only catch was, the recitients had to buy the produced goods on a daily basis. The items only lasted a day, so they had to be replaced on a daily basis.
