What I Ordered from Amazon in September 2019

It’s time for another edition of what we ordered from Amazon!  September was probably an average month for us on Amazon… we ordered a handful of items we needed, a couple we didn’t, and then I also ordered a couple of things for Christmas.  Are y’all ready to see what we bought?

Babydoll Dress

I ordered this dress for our fall family pictures and I’ll probably also wear it for Thanksgiving and Christmas as well.  It might just be one of my favorite Amazon fashion purchases to date.  The quality is great, the price is awesome, and it comes in lots of other colors, including solids if you’re not one for polka dots.  It runs large, so size down.  I ordered a small and it fits perfectly, but it is definitely a loose-fitting style.  It looks cute alone, or if you don’t like the billowy look, you can remedy that with a belt.  It’s darling either way!

Pilot Precise Pens

I’ve been using these pens since high school and they’re the only pens I’ll ever use.  This color selection is my very favorite as I use them to color code the calendar in my planner.  They’re usually pretty pricey, but Amazon has this particular set waaaay cheap!  They were only $5.99 when I bought them!

Kate Spade Polka Dot Mug

These mugs have been in my wish list for years, so when I saw that Amazon had dropped the price to just $6.99 I went ahead and grabbed one to add to my every day coffee mug collection.  I have lots of black polka dots in our décor downstairs, and I’ve had the matching bowls and hand towels so this mug is the perfect match. 

Digital Timer Bookmarks

Jacob has to read 20 minutes and then do a reading response sheet Monday – Wednesday for homework.  Some days he just reads as long as he wants, but on days where we have baseball practice or other activities, we only have time to do the minimum of 20 minutes.  I’ve been using the timer on my phone to get his time in, but when these digital bookmarks popped up as a lightning deal, I thought he’d think they were cool to have.  I scooped one for each kid during the lightning deal and I’m going to put them in their stockings for Christmas.  I thought it would be something different to put in there besides the typical chapstick, stickers, and candy that usually goes in there.

Almay Eye Palette

I’ve been using this same eye shadow palette for years and I recently discovered that Amazon has it cheaper than any other place, including Walmart.  I guess I should have known that anyway!  My current palette was on its way out, so I went ahead and ordered two of these babies to have for the future.


My reflux doc wanted me to start including Benefiber into my daily diet for my reflux/digestion issues, so I grabbed it on Amazon.  I haven't started using it yet, but I'll let y'all know how I like it when I do.  #OldLadyStatus

Eyebrow Pencil

These Maybelline eyebrow pencils are my favorite and I was almost out of my current one, so I bought two on Amazon.  As with pretty much everything else, they’re cheaper on Amazon than anywhere else!

Command Strips

I hang pretty much everything with these Command Strips and we were almost out, so I bought these to replenish our stock.  I keep them on hand at all times.  I’ve been using them for years and they’re perfect for hanging weird things that you can’t hang with nails.  They’re also perfect for hanging things inside cabinets and other places where you don’t want to damage the surface.  I’ve been using them for years and years and never once have any of them ever damaged a surface.  They truly come off clean and I can’t rave about them enough!

Flonase Sensimist

Per my doctor’s recommendation, I use this Flonase Sensimist year-round for my allergies and Eustachian tube issues and it’s by far the cheapest on Amazon, even when you have a Walmart coupon!  If you’ve ever suffered from breathing/stuffy nose issues during a cold or allergies, this stuff is MAGIC.  I started using it almost three years ago and I’ve literally not had a stuffy or clogged nose since then... even when I’m sick.  And it’s safe to use all the time… it’s not addictive like the old-school steroid nasal sprays.  I cannot recommend this stuff enough!

Amazon Gift Card

Finally, an Amazon gift card… because you can’t go wrong giving one of those to someone for a gift!  We celebrated my brother this past weekend and that’s what he got since he’s so hard to buy for.  If you buy an Amazon gift card on Amazon, they’ll ship it for free in one day!  You can’t go wrong with that!  And they have soooo many cute and fun gift card options, too, that you can’t get in any store!

Well, that’s it, y’all!  If you want to see what we’ve ordered in past months, check out the posts below.

Happy Tuesday!

    Both my kids had those bookmarks when they were younger and they worked well!

  4. That polka dot dress is adorable and will be perfect for Fall photos!

  5. I have that dress in a deep maroon color! I love it so much! I really love that color and print you shared here, though!

  6. Some good finds! That dress, can't wait to see your photos! Command strips are life. Mine is going live tomorrow. I bought too much this month! haha!

  7. Those bookmarks would have been great when my kids were required to read every night! They spent more time watching the clock than actually reading.

  8. I love the idea of the timer bookmark. I bet I will need those for when my girls start reading more. I love that dress so much. I used to use that Flonase too.

  9. That dress is adorable! As are the kate Spade mugs!

  10. What a deal on those pens! Michael recently started taking fiber for his cholesterol...it definitely makes you feel old when you are talking about things like fiber. Ha, ha! Thanks for linking up with Prime Purchases! Tanya - The Other Side of the Road
