What I Ordered from Amazon in March 2022

I came across some fantastic finds on Amazon this month, and I’m so SO excited to share all of them with you today.  So many winners, y’all!


Fluttery Skirt

I have two of these skirts, one in black and white, and one in beige and white, and I love them so much that I bought a third when it went on super sale!  I’ve been wanting a colorful one, and I love the shade of green on this one.  I sized up to a medium this time as the elastic in the waist runs a bit small on these, and it fits perfectly.  I’m counting down the days until I can wear it!


White Top

I’ve been wanting a couple of cropped tanks to wear with my high-waisted leggings that I wear when I work out, and since this one has great reviews, I decided to grab one.  It fits perfect, it’s not see-through, and it’s so cute!  I’ll also be able to wear it with my high-waisted skirts (like the one above), so it’s multi-purpose!  I love this one so much that I added the black one to my birthday wish list.  I’ll be able to wear that one with workout clothes and also with my black and white high waisted skirt.  I haven’t had a great black top to wear with that skirt, so this one will be perfect.  I bought a small and it fits true to size.


Fanny Pack Option #1

I searched high and low for the perfect fanny pack for our Disney trip, and I ordered four to try.  This was option #1 and it ended up being my second favorite choice.  I loved the way this one looked the most, but I didn’t love how the zippers clanked together when I walked.  I also loved a couple of features of option #2 that this one didn’t have, so I ultimately sent this one back.  I was soooo tempted to keep this one in addition to the other one, though, because it is a great pack!


Fanny Pack Option #2

This fanny pack ended up being the winner and the one that I kept for our trip!  It was the most comfortable and it has a hidden pocket on the inside where I can store my ID and credit cards without having to worry about someone sliding the zipper open when I’m not looking and stealing my stuff.  It’s large enough to fit all of my essentials, and it has four separate zippered pockets so I can keep everything organized.  As I said before, there’s a small inside zipper pocket that rests against your abdomen where I can store my ID, credit cards, and cash.  Then there’s a small zipper pocket on the outside where I’ll probably keep medication (Ibuprofen, Band-Aids, etc.).  The zipper pocket just behind that one is the perfect size to hold my iPhone, a charging bank, and a cord.  And then the main zipper pocket is large enough to hold everything else – hand wipes, hand sanitizer, my inhaler, sunglasses, a small sunscreen, Chapstick, a couple of Young Living oils that I never leave home without, gum, etc.  The pack is comfortable, it’s fully adjustable, and it’s waterproof.  It also has a built-in headphone hole (although most people use wireless headphones now anyway) so you can use your headphones without holding your phone, and it has a loop on one side that will also hold a water bottle.  It can be worn around the waist, as a crossbody bag, or as a standard one shoulder bag and I could not love it more.  At just $15.29 it’s going to be worth every single penny, and I have a feeling I’ll be using it for a lot more than just Disney World.  If you’re in the market for a “waist bag” then look no further than this one.  It’s perfect.   


Fanny Pack Option #3

This pack was just as good as option #2, but ultimately, I thought option #2 was more stylish.  This one is a bit too masculine for my taste, but overall, it’s a fantastic bag.


Fanny Pack Option #4

I didn’t like this one at all.  It looked too much like an old 80’s version of a fanny pack, and that was reason enough for me to send it back.  I also didn’t like how the main zipper opened because it was more difficult to access everything inside the pocket than in the other bags.  I do think the leopard print is fun, but this one just wasn’t for me.


Gold Sandals

Remember all of the gold sandals from Target that I had purchased for Olivia to try a couple of weeks ago?   Well, they run HUGE, and none of the sizes worked for her because they were all too big.  The smallest size they came in was a 2, so it was back to the drawing board for sandals for her.  I came across these darling gold glitter sandals from Amazon and I knew she’d love them.  They are excellent quality, the fit is perfect, and she loves them.  They’re not super stiff like some sandals, and therefore, they don’t rub on her heels or toes, and the best part is… the buckle is just for looks and there is an easy-off/easy-on Velcro strip under the buckle!  We couldn’t love these more and I’m sure she’ll be wearing them all summer!  They’ll go with everything from shorts to casual dresses to her Easter dress!  Highly recommend these!


Neck Relaxer

I carry all of my tension and anxiety in my head, jaw, neck, and shoulders region, and I’ve been having a terrible time lately with getting all of those muscles to relax.  I started researching on Amazon to see if I could find any tools that might aid with that, and I came across this little contraption.  Just ten minutes a day gives you relief from neck and head tension, and I cannot say enough good things about it!!  By simply laying on it for just 10 minutes a day, it helps restore proper cervical curvature, therefore alleviating tension that builds up from keeping an unnatural posture.  I was highly skeptical, but after using it on a particularly tension-filled day, I was FLOORED by the immediate relief it gave me.  It is uncomfortable while in use, but when I got up, wow, did I feel so much better!  My neck felt loose and relaxed and I was even able to turn my head more to each side.  It currently has more than 25,000 reviews and 4.2 / 5 stars, so apparently, I’m not the only one who loves it.


Cervical Memory Foam Pillow

In addition to purchasing the neck relaxer, I also FINALLY bought a new pillow to sleep on at night.  Y’all may remember that I took a poll in Instagram, like, two years ago looking for pillow recommendations, and then I never did anything with the results.  Sigh.  Well, I finally bit the bullet and bought a new pillow, and I had high hopes for it since the reviews were good, but I'm just not a fan.  I'm a side sleeper, and I found that this pillow put too much pressure on my jaw causing my TMJ to feel worse.  The first night I slept on it, I woke up 84,000 times because I couldn't get comfortable on it at all.  It has so many positive reviews, so I'm sure it must work for some people, but apparently I'm not one of those people.  Back to the drawing board!


Gold Bond Crepe Corrector

My hands get soooo dry in the winter and over the long term, my hands have aged faster than the rest of my body.  The skin on my hands right near my thumbs gets crepe-y looking during the winter, so I thought I’d try this hand cream since my old hand cream just ran out.  Y’all, I LOVE this cream!  It does exactly what it says it’s going to do, and my hands have been looking less crepe-y since I started using it.  It contains Omega fatty acids that help diminish fine lines and wrinkles and it keeps skin moisturized for 24 hours (although, I wash my hands so much that it definitely doesn’t last 24 hours), and it has helped tremendously with my dry skin.  It’s lightweight and not greasy at all which was also a surprise.  It has 4.4 / 5 stars with over 8,000 reviews and the tube is large (same size as a full-size Bath & Body Works Body Cream) so it’s going to last for a long time!  Highly recommend!


Melissa & Doug Created By Me Flower Fleece Pillow

Olivia received the Melissa & Doug Created by Me Fleece Blanket for Christmas and she’s enjoyed putting it together ever since.  We had a birthday party to attend this past month for one of Olivia’s classmates, and she loves to craft, so I thought this make your own fleece pillow would be the perfect gift.  This is a no-sew project, so it’s built by knotting together the fabric.  The fabric is thick – excellent quality – and it’s something that any little one could put together on their own.  The end result is just darling!!  At just $11.99 (it was actually only $9.97 when I bought it), it’s the perfect birthday party gift!!  I’m honestly surprised that they’re not charging more for these. 


Lego Bunny Sets

I bought two of these sets to put in the kids’ Easter baskets.  They always love getting the holiday Lego sets, so these were no-brainers.  This family loves Lego!


Dryer Vent Cleaning Kit

We’ve had trouble over the years with our dryer vent getting bogged down with lint.  A couple of years ago, our dryer wasn’t drying at all… it was taking at least 2+ hours to dry one load of clothes.  Brian and my uncle went on our roof to clean out the vent from the outside, and there was a literal brick of lint at the opening.  It was seriously inches thick and hard as a rock.  It had all accumulated for so long that it completely stopped up the vent and that’s why the clothes weren’t drying.  Talk about a fire hazard!  Ever since that day, we’ve been extra careful about cleaning our lint trap, but I still worry about the little bits that get through clogging everything up again.  I saw Danielle post about this dryer vent cleaning kit the other day, and I immediately added it to my cart.  The special hose attaches to your vacuum cleaner, and it’s over 3.5 feet long, so it can reach way down into the dryer and clean everything out.  We haven’t tried it yet, but it’s highly rated and has over 8,000 reviews. 


Magic Band Keepers

Marie posted about these Magic Band keepers and I couldn’t add them to my cart fast enough.  I’m always soooo worried about the kids losing their Magic Bands while we’re at Disney… your entire trip is attached to those things so I’m not even sure what to do if you lose one!!  These bands slide around the Magic Bands to hold them in place, so you never have to worry about one of them falling off and getting lost.  At just $5.95 for the 8-pack, I figured it was worth the money to avoid the potential chaos that would ensue if we lost a Magic Band.


Jesus Costume

Jacob’s class is performing in a live Stations of the Cross program at school and Jacob has to dress up like one of Jesus’ friends.  Amazon to the rescue!!  This costume was just over $20 (which is a little more than I would have liked to spend) but it was worth the convenience for me to not have to find fabric and fashion something for him myself.  I might be creative in many ways, but school dress-up days are not my forte. 


Dial Soap

The kids were asked to bring in bars of soap to school this month for our community outreach program, so I bought this 8-pack on Amazon. 


Flonase Sensimist

And again, it was time for a refill of my beloved Flonase Sensimist.  I use this year-round for my allergies, but it’s particularly important right now with all of the pollen flying around.  As I’ve mentioned numerous times on the blog, I haven’t had a stuffy nose since 2018 because this prevents it 24/7/365.  Even when I’m really sick.


Happy Monday, y’all!

And if you want to see everything that I ordered in previous months, just check out the posts below!

*Linking up with The Other Side of the Road for Prime Purchases.


  1. The magic band keepers are such a great idea! I love that sweet little skirt, I have two of those from Amazon and wear them all the time little white T-shirts like that. Have a great start to your week!

  2. That skirt really is fabulous - I have it as well! I love the fanny pack you ended up keeping for your trip!

  3. So many fun things! I would want that skirt if it had attached shorts. Why don't they make them like that?? Do you wear shorts under your skirts?

  4. I get allergies this time of the year and I hate them! I recently had my doctor put me back on a daily inhaler, just because I felt like I was using my rescue inhaler too much. I think I'll mainly just need it at the beginning of the spring/fall and not all year (hopefully). That neck relaxer looks interesting! I sometimes tense of my neck and shoulder muscles during my longer runs. It has been freezing when I do the runs first thing in the morning and that doesn't help. I should look into that!


  5. I'm putting the hand cream on my shopping list - my hands need it! Thanks for linking up next week. :)

  6. I am glad that you got the vent cleaner. It is amazing. I definitely need to do it every two weeks I feel like. Love that you got 4 fanny packs to pick from! I love that skirt so much. I have it in two colors and I can't wait to add more for the Summer.

  7. Thanks for the shout out, girl! Yes, you'll love those Magic Band keepers! I forgot to tell you that while we were at the Frozen show at HS, a little boy had dropped his Magic Band and family was ahead of me and walking out of the theater - I picked it up and handed it off soooo fast - the mom was so relieved. I wish I could have handed out one of these keeper things, too! Oh and that workout shirt is absolutely adorable! Adding to cart!

    1. You're welcome! I'm so glad you mentioned them. I've always worried about one of the bands getting lost. I don't know what we'd do! Thank goodness you saw them lose theirs. I bet they were so darn grateful!

  8. I have that skirt in plain black and really like it a lot! I don't actually have a March purchases post because I didn't buy anything last month.

    1. Oh wow, I don't think I've ever gone an entire month without ordering something! That's quite an achievement!
