Favorite Amazon Purchases of All-Time!

Happy Prime Day, fall edition, y'all!  

I’ll be sharing some of my favorite Amazon Prime deals on Instagram stories today, and in honor of the sale, I also wanted to share some of my all-time favorite Amazon purchases with you, some of which will be included in the sale today.

We do a lot of our shopping on Amazon as they do tend to have the best prices (I've been a loyal Amazon shopper since 2002), and between that and free two-day shipping with our Prime membership, it's a great way to save money while also experiencing the convenience of having everything delivered straight to your door.

If you’re not already a Prime member, you can sign up here and join me in shopping all of the Prime Day deals!  And if you're already a member, what are you waiting for??  Head over to shop all of the deals here!

Now for some of my all-time favorite Amazon purchases...

White Ruffle Sleeve Top

Ohhhh, y’all, I LOVE this top.  By far, my favorite top I've ever purchased from Amazon.  The ruffle detail looks like something that you’d get from a boutique rather than Amazon, and it is just so cute.  I bought this to wear with my fluttery Amazon skirts that I love so much.  Fits true-to-size.  The small is perfect on me.  Just keep in mind that these are fitted, so if you prefer a little bit of extra room, size up one size.  I also have it in black, and there's now one in HOT PINK, so I want that one, too!

Sheer Sleeve Top

I love this top so much I dedicated an entire blog post to it plus an Instagram Reel!!  Y’all, this top is just perfection!  It’s fitted through the bodice, and it has puffy sheer sleeves adorned with polka dots for a chic, classy look.  The quality is good, the fabric is average thickness (not too thick and not too thing), and the bodice is super soft.  The sleeves are comfortable and not itchy at all to me (although, if you have sensitive skin, I could see where they could possibly be a bit itchy on the seams at the wrists?).  It can be worn with a regular bra (no strapless bra required), and it’s true-to-size.  I’m actually wearing an XS, but I think the small would have worked just fine, too.  It’s soooo versatile and it comes in 13 colors, so there’s something for everyone!  I own it in four colors!  Haha.

Workout Tank

These are my all-time favorite workout tanks and I’ve talked about them numerous times on the blog.  They did go on sale on Prime Day back in July, so I grabbed two more… one in black, and another white one since white is my favorite color to wear since it matches everything.  These tops are AWESOME, though.  They wick away sweat, they’re comfortable, they’re cool, and they have built-in shelf bras with light padding, so you don’t have to wear a sports bra with them.  They’re very supportive (keep in mind I’m small-chested, so I can’t speak for larger-chested ladies!), and they’re soooo cute!  They hit at just the right spot on my waist, and the criss-cross back adds a little something special!  I cannot recommend these enough!  They’re all I wear with my running shorts now.


Workout Tank

I also love these workout tanks as they are my very favorites to wear with leggings!  They are just perfect.  They have a built-in shelf bra with removeable pads, so you don’t have to wear anything underneath.  They hit my torso just above my belly button which is perfect since my leggings hit right at my belly button.  They do run small, though.  My true size is a small in tops, but I buy mediums for these.

Women’s Athletic Shorts

And speaking of athletic shorts, these are my favorite.  In case you haven’t heard me rave about these shorts yet, they are ah-mazing.  They are the perfect length, they hit at just the right spot on my torso, and they have a little zipper pocket in the back where you can store a key or whatever else you may need that’s small.  The fabric is excellent, and the overall quality is top-notch, too.


Workout Skirt

I bought a workout skirt to change things up from my usual shorts and this one is SO nice.  The quality is top-notch, and many of the reviews compare it to one of the Lulu brand skirts.  It has built-in shorts along with a back zipper pocket, and it comes in tons and tons of colors.  It’s comfortable and cool and it’s such a fun addition to my athletic wear since I workout so often. 

Faux Leather Skirt

These faux leather skirts are fantastic and I get compliments every time I wear them.  The material is really nice… it’s very realistic and it’s not too plastic-y or shiny, and it’s soooo soft.  It’s mid-rise, so it hits at just the right spot on my waist, and the length is perfect, too.  It’s not too short, but it’s also not long like a pencil skirt that you’d wear to work.  You could easily wear this out somewhere fun or you could even dress it up for a classy look.  It zips up in the back so it’s easy to put on, and IT HAS POCKETS!  This skirt is such a winner, y’all, and I cannot recommend it enough if you’re wanting to jump on the (faux) leather train.  I would also say that it fits true-to-size.  The small is perfect on me and I’m 5’5”.  It comes in 12 different colors/variations including brown, dark red, and dark green.  

Silver Cowboy Boots

I’ve sung the praises of these boots on the blog several times, and they are from Amazon, y’all!  I was really worried about the quality and the comfort factor when I bought these, but it turns out that they’re very well made and they’re soooo comfortable!  I wore them for 12 hours straight when we went to see Taylor Swift in Atlanta, and I was on my feet the majority of that time, and they didn’t hurt my feet at all.  I highly recommend these if you’re in the market for a pair of good boots but you don’t want to spend a ton of money on real leather ones.  They also come in lots of different colors, so you can find them for pretty much any occasion. 


Belt Bag

I’ve been wanting one of the Lululemon belt bags for months, but they have been out of stock.  My friend, Emily, found this bag on Amazon, and it is a dead ringer for the Lululemon bag… and for half the price!  The quality is fantastic, and the size is perfect, and I am so excited to have this bag!!  In the fall, we attend lots of events where we walk around a lot, and there’s nothing worse than having to tote around a giant, heavy bag all day.  I’ve been wanting a small, comfortable bag that holds all of my essentials, and this one fits the bill!  And it’s so stylish unlike so many other belt bags AKA fanny packs.  This bag comes in 43 colors so you can find the one that’s right for you, and the 14,000+ reviews are excellent… it has 4.7 / 5 stars, most from people who were also seeking the Lululemon bag.


Reusable Shopping Bags

We’re big on reducing waste and recycling and caring for the environment when we can, and one thing I started doing last year was using reusable shopping bags.  Each grocery store trip was resulting in us using 10-15 plastic shopping bags, but now I can get all of my groceries into these four reusable bags.  

These bags are awesome!!  They’re large and they hold a ton of stuff, but they’re super sturdy and even when they're filled to the brim with groceries, they never feel like they're going to give out.  They’re made of a material that’s easy to wipe down, but they’re surprisingly thin and don’t take up much room in my car when folded up.  All four filled bags fit perfectly in one shopping cart and they fit perfectly across the back of my Telluride trunk.  I love this neutral color, but they do come in other colors if you prefer.  I've been using mine for over a year now, and they still look brand-new.  I cannot recommend these enough!


Hanging Toiletry Bag

I've mentioned this travel toiletry bag numerous times on the blog, and it's by far, one of my favorite Amazon purchases.  It has been a GAME CHANGER.  It doesn't take up a ton of room in your suitcase, yet it holds a TON of stuff including full-sized Bath & Body Works body creams (to give you an idea of the sizing).  There are so many pockets that you can organize everything exactly as you need to, and it has a hanger that pulls out so you can hang it in your hotel room when you travel.

Battery Operated Candles

These candles are my favorite thing!!!!  These candlesticks are battery-operated so there is no actual fire used, and that means that you can place them anywhere without having to worry about little kids getting into them or catching something on fire.  The candles are made of real wax, though, so they look authentic, and the battery-operated flames dance just like real flames… I don’t know how on earth they made them look so realistic, but they did.  They are incredible.  The candles also come with a remote control, so you can turn them on and off with the click of a button, and you can also customize some of the settings – you can adjust how bright/dim they are, and you can also opt to have the candles flicker or provide solid steady light.  There is also a 2, 4, 6, and 8 hour timer, so you can set them to turn off automatically.  They look gorgeous with my fall décor, they look amazing at Halloween, and they are stunning at Christmas.  I love them so much I leave them up all year-long now.


Candlestick Holders

These black candlestick holders are excellent quality, they’re sleek, and they look fantastic with my battery-operated candlesticks.  They hold any standard taper candle, though, so you’re not limited to using them with those.

Snack Bag

Every time we travel, we bring a bag of snacks for the trip.  In the past, I’ve always used a gallon Ziploc bag because I like to be able to see everything we have in a clear bag.  After years of using Ziploc bags, I finally decided to get this cute clear pouch for future trips so we can have something a little more sturdy, and something that’s also reuseable so we don’t have to keep wasting Ziploc bags.  The pouch is just DARLING and it comes in a bunch of different colors.  It’s also very sturdy and very large, and the whole thing is excellent quality.  It has a nice, smooth zipper, and a removeable wrist strap for easy carrying as well.  We've used it numerous times already and it's just perfect every time!

Mini Car Trashcan

This mini trashcan for your car sits perfectly in a cupholder, and it holds a surprisingly large amount of trash.  Prior to this, I’d just been sticking my trash in one of the cupholders anyway, so this keeps it out of sight.  It’s very well-made and the lid flips back in place quickly to trap the trash in there before it can pop back out.  It’s the best $10 I’ve spent in a while.


Encyclopedia of Cocktails Book

I’ve mentioned this book numerous times on the blog because I love it so much.  I bought one of these for our school auction last year and the year before, and I loved it so much that I bought one for myself, too.  This book is gorgeous – it’s big and it’s sleek – the page edges are black and there are little spots on the cover that are foil, so it’s great to use as a decorative item in addition to an actual recipe book.  I also love how organized and uniform all of the recipes are inside.  It’s truly a gorgeous book and it would make a great gift for anyone who loves cocktails... it would make a great holiday gift, and it would also make a great hostess gift!

Girls Gold Glitter Sandals

I've bought this exact pair of gold glitter sandals for Olivia twice because she loves them so much.  They are very well-made, they are comfortable, they go with everything, and the buckle isn’t real… it’s actually Velcro which we loooove, because they’re so easy to take on and off.  They also hold up beautifully over time.  If you’re looking for great quality shoes that are comfy and won’t break the bank, look no further!  These are excellent!


Echo Devices

If you have ever considered purchasing any of the Amazon Echo devices (they are the ones with Alexa) for your home, Prime Day is the day to do it because they discount all of them deeply.  We have three Echo devices in our home – one in the kitchen, one in our bedroom, and one in my office – and we use them every single day.  Alexa will play music of any genre from Amazon’s music collection (my personal favorite is to ask her to play 90’s pop or 90’s R&B – SO FREAKING GOOD).  You can play music from your iPhone (iTunes library, Pandora, Podcasts, etc.) by asking Alexa to connect to your iPhone (all you have to do is pair it with the Echo first).  You can play any local radio stations as there is a tuner or you can play any radio station anywhere in the country as long as they’re on iHeart Radio.  You can also create groups for all of your Echo devices to play the same music all over the house or just in specific rooms and you can also “drop in” to any room with an Echo and talk to the person in the room.

You can play trivia and other games (our kids love this), set cooking timers, ask what the weather will be in your area, order items from Amazon, add items to your shopping list or wish list, set reminders that occur daily/weekly/annually, ask Alexa to tell you a joke, and ask Alexa pretty much any random question that pops into your brain.  Our kids discovered that you can even ask Alexa to burp or fart (face palm) and she totally does all kinds of different ones.  Lol.  We get a weekly email about all the things that Alexa can do, and I learn new stuff every single week, years after having it.  We love these devices SO much and they are currently 40% off in the sale today and tomorrow!


Amazon Smart Plugs

If you do decide to outfit your home with Echo devices, don’t forget the smart plugs!  Y’all, these are just the best things in the world!  We have them in so many rooms of our house.  These are so easy to set up and you can plug any device into them.  I have twinkle lights in our kitchen on the bar cart, in the living room on a fake tree, in our bedroom, and hanging from the ceiling in my office, and all I have to do is walk in any room and say, “Alexa, turn on the bar cart (or whatever else)” and the lights just pop right on.  You can also group smart plugs together in rooms, so instead of telling each one to turn on individually, you can just say, “Alexa, turn on the kitchen.”  And BING, all of the items in the kitchen turn on.  Seriously, the best thing ever.  You can also control all of these from the app on your phone, so even when you’re away from your home, you can turn lamps/lights/etc. on and off as needed.  These are 48% off in the Prime Day sale!


Amazon Ring Home Security System

We have also outfitted our entire home with the Amazon Ring home security system.  We have cameras outside so we can see every single angle of our house anytime, right from our phones.  We love the Ring Spotlight Cameras because they sense motion (you can adjust the sensitivity levels for your needs), they have spotlights that turn on automatically when motion is sensed, they have a two-way talk system (so you can talk to someone on the camera through the app on your phone), and they have a siren alarm that can be activated right from your phone or Echo at any time.  We also have a Ring Doorbell for the front door.

Any time motion is sensed, B and I are both alerted on our phones (and my Apple Watch), and we can replay the footage at any time.  We’ve been using the Ring security system for a couple of years now, and we absolutely LOVE it.  It gives me so much peace of mind to know that I can just pop in and see what’s going on around our entire house any time I want to, even if we’re out of town.  If we see anything suspicious, we can talk to someone via the camera or sound the alarm from anywhere in the world.


Peplum Top

This top is one of my favorite tops I’ve ever purchased on Amazon.  It is versatile because you can dress it up or down, it’s flattering for all body types, it looks fantastic with jeans or shorts, and it comes in a ton of different colors and patterns.  I love this top so much I own it in four different colors/patterns and I wear them all the time.


Fluttery Skirt

Chances are you’ve seen this skirt all over Instagram and influencer land because so many people have them.  The reason everyone has them is because they are SO GOOD.  Again, this is one of my all-time favorite clothing purchases from Amazon, and I love it so much, that I own it in three different colors and patterns.



This sweater is, hands down, my favorite sweater ever purchased from Amazon.  Y’all, this sweater is HIGH quality.  It’s thick, the fabric is soft and luxurious, the cut is gorgeous, and it’s long enough to wear with leggings.  Seriously, so SO good.  I own this one in three colors because it’s just that good!


CRZ Yoga Leggings

These leggings are, by far, the best leggings I own… they are even better than the ever-popular Zella Live-In leggings that I also own.  They are called “naked” leggings because they are truly that comfortable.  You barely notice them when you’re wearing them.  And they don’t leave a big itchy seam mark down the inside of your leg like the Zellas do when you take them off.  I don’t even know how many pairs of these I have, but it’s at least 4-5, because they are AMAZING, and they are all I wear for workouts in the winter.


Green Top

This top is stunning and I receive so many compliments on it every time I wear it!!  The quality is great, the top fits perfectly (it’s true to size… I’m in a small), and the colors are rich and beautiful.  The sleeves can be worn on the shoulder or off the shoulder, and either way, I do wear a strapless bra with it.  Otherwise, my bra straps show slightly in the front.  It comes in tons of different colors and patterns, and there are loads of long-sleeve options as well.  I also have the purple floral long-sleeve version for fall!

One Shoulder Sequin Dress

I bought this dress for a ball that we attended earlier this year.  When I first pulled it out of the bag, I thought for sure it wasn’t going to be as good as the other black one shoulder sequin dress I had decided on, but it ended up being the absolute best.  In the picture on Amazon, the dress appears to be covered in black sequins (which is what I was looking for), but when it arrived, I noticed that all of the sequins had a turquoise or purple hue.  That was a complete turnoff and I almost didn’t even try the dress on, but I’m so glad I did because I ended up LOVING it. The dress is very well-made… the bodice is actually velvet (which was also unexpected) and it was thick and luxurious and soft.  It also had a full zipper all the way up the side which made it easy to get in and out of.  When I put this dress on, Olivia literally squealed with delight, so I knew it was the winner.  It was slightly shorter than the other option I’d chosen, but it wasn’t too short that I felt uncomfortable, and I actually preferred the shorter length to the more conservative length of the other one I’d originally chosen.  Bottom line, this dress made me feel beautiful and confident, it was comfortable and easy to dance in (didn’t have to worry about wardrobe malfunctions), and I cannot even tell y’all how many compliments I received while I was wearing it.  It was a HUGE winner and I love it so much that I wore it again to the Taylor Swift Eras Tour concert.  It fits true-to-size… I’m in the small.  And it also comes in tons of different colors and cuts.

Convertible Tights

These are our favorite tights for Olivia for dance.  She can wear them regularly for ballet, tap, and jazz, and then she is able to put her feet through the holes and pull them up on her ankles for her lyrical class.  The tights are thick and stretchy and comfy (believe me, Olivia hates anything too binding), and they hold up so well.  She’s always pretty rough on everything, and these hold up for months without getting holes or runs.


Accupressure Mat

I bought this acupressure mat back in 2012 when I was having a terrible time with lower back pain after childbirth.  I had put it away for years, only to resurrect it in recent months since I started suffering from debilitating neck tension that we're thinking has been the root of my vertigo.  Y'all, this mat is just incredible.  It hurts like hell when you first start laying on it, but as your body adjusts, it starts to feel like magic instead, and it has been a source for pain relief for me for 11 years now.  I roll a towel under one end and lay my shoulders, neck, and the base of my head on it, and it just melts away the tension when nothing else works.  I've started laying on it daily as a preventative measure, and between this and the turmeric and magnesium I started taking, I have been feeling so much better in my neck and shoulders area.  I've also only had one headache in the last month, which is fantastic since I get them frequently.  You can lay any part of your body on it for pain relief, and you can even stand on it to relieve tired feet.  It increases the blood flow to the area where you lay, and that, in turn, improves circulation as well.  This thing has been a Godsend these last few months with all of the neck tension I've been having, and I can't recommend it enough if you get tension headaches and/or carry all of your stress in your neck and shoulders.

Clear Stadium Bag

Now that stadiums and other large venues are requiring clear bags, I’ve been on the hunt for the perfect one, and I found it!!  It’s this one!  It holds so much, but it’s lightweight.  It has one inside clear pocket for smaller items and one large compartment for larger items.  It has an adjustable strap so you can wear it at your side or as a crossbody, and the plastic is soooo soft.  It’s not hard like most plastic bags are.


TSA-Approved Toiletry Bag

I bought this TSA-approved toiletry kit to take on our trip to New York City last December.  There are tons of different ones on Amazon, but I liked this one the best because of the combination of bottles.  This set has 4 bottles, 4 jars, 2 spray bottles, 2 scoopers, 1 funnel, 1 clean brush, 1 page of labels, and the bag.  I can't even tell you how much I love this little kit.  It has a container for everything, the bottles are easy to squeeze so there's no waste, it came with little scoops for the tubs, and it even came with little labels that you can stick right on each of the containers.  None of the containers leaked either!!


Glass Nail File

I keep a nail file in my office, my purse, and my bathroom, and as each one of my old ones is biting the dust, I’m replacing them with these glass nailfiles.  If you haven’t used a glass nail file, then you’re seriously missing out!  They file your nails to perfection with little effort, and since they’re made of glass, they’ll never get dull which means they can be used forever.  I ordered my first one two years ago and it has been the best thing ever… worlds better than a standard nail file!


Gold Bond Neck and Chest Firming Cream

This item can be purchased at most stores, but Amazon typically has the best price.  I started using this about a year ago, and it has made a huge difference in the skin around my chest and neck.  My neck and chest skin is rough and uneven compared to the rest of my body (probably from years and years of exposure to the sun), and this cream has worked wonders on smoothing it out. 


Toilet Bowl Pumice Cleaner

The kids’ toilet had a couple of stains that were impossible to clean.  I tried every single thing I could think of, and nothing would remove them.  I came across this Powerhouse Pumice toilet cleaner, and it has been a miracle-worker.  It removed the stains easily and completely with minimal work.  Any kind of stain that you may have in your toilet – calcium, rust, limescale, mildew, hardwater – it will remove all of them.  And this thing is chemical-free, non-toxic, and odorless.  The cleaner is a pumice stone, and the stone works similar to a sander to gently sand the stains right off.  By far, one of my favorite purchases on Amazon ever!


Bug Bite Thing

Jacob and I are magnets for mosquitoes, and both of us get bites constantly during the summer.  Our bites swell up huge and itch for days and it’s just misery.  I saw this Bug Bite Thing on Shark Tank a while back, and I finally decided to buy one last month after Jacob got eaten up one evening.  Since we bought it, I have gotten bitten twice, and Y’ALL, THIS THING WORKS!!!!  Color me shocked.  I was very skeptical, but I cannot believe I’m telling y’all that it actually works.

When you get bitten, you take this little contraption and place it over the bite.  You pull up on the handle until you feel the suction, and you can adjust the suction level to your comfort based on how far you pull the handles.  Once the suction is in place, you hold it for 10 seconds and then push the handles back down.  Repeat this one more time on the same bite.  Voila.  No itching.  No swelling.  And the bug bite disappears within hours.

The suction literally pulls the mosquito’s saliva out of your skin, therefore, preventing your body from reacting to it.  And this thing works with all bug bites – ants, bees, wasps, chiggers, etc.  No chemicals.  No creams.  It’s lightweight and portable.  It’s safe to use on children.  It takes, like, 30 seconds to do the whole process.  The relief is immediate.  And it’s reusable. 

Seriously the best $9.95 I’ve ever spent.

Pineapple Slicer

We love pineapple, but we don’t love the price tag that comes with buying precut pineapple… whole pineapples are soooo much cheaper, but they’re so hard to cut!  Brian grabbed this pineapple slicer about a year ago, and it makes cutting pineapples the easiest thing!  All you have to do is cut the top off of the pineapple, and then you just sit the pineapple corer on the top and twist the handle until it gets to the bottom.  Give it a little tug, and the whole inside of the pineapple comes right out, sliced into rings.  Seriously amazing and it takes about 30 seconds.  It’s also dishwasher safe which is important because nobody has time to hand wash!


Entryway Christmas Trees

I bought two of these entryway trees to flank our front door last year, and they are perfect.  The price of artificial trees has increased crazily these last few years, and these had the best price of any that I could find at Michaels, Target, Walmart, or any of the other standard retailers.  They’re great quality, they’re tall (4-feet), and they’re full, so they were a great deal for the price.  They look beautiful on our front porch, and I highly recommend them if you’re looking for some!



Tiered Tray

This tiered tray has been in our kitchen for years and I get asked about it constantly.  It was an Amazon purchase, and you don’t just get one in the package… you get two!  I had no idea that there were going to be two, so I was thrilled to have an extra one to put in Olivia’s bedroom to hold all of her hair accessories.  We’ve had both of these for years and years and they are both still going strong in their respective rooms.  Excellent quality and a great price since there are two in the package.  It's currently 69% off, too!!


Cookie Dough Scoop

I bought one of these and it has made baking a breeze.  We make a lot of muffins in our house and dividing up muffin batter is always such a pain until I bought this little scoop.  I just dip it in the batter, hold it over the muffin cup, squeeze the handle, and a perfect little plop of batter goes right into the muffin cup.  No more dripping all over the sides of the pan.  I love this thing!! 


Microfiber Cleaning Cloths

No cloth cleans like a microfiber cleaning cloth!!  These little powerhouses clean my countertops and mirrors soooo much better than regular cleaning cloths.  Prior to purchasing these, I couldn’t find a single cleaning cloth or paper towel that didn’t leave streaks on my mirrors.  These cleaning cloths leave ZERO streaks, and they make my mirrors and other glass items look perfect and shiny.


Hello Doormat

I bought this doormat five years ago, and it’s still going strong on our back porch.  It comes in lots of different colors and it’s so fun.  The price is also really great! 


Faux Pink Tulips

These tulips look SO real and the color is gorgeous.  I have them in a couple of different places in my house year-round and they are so good that several people have mistaken them for fresh flowers.  I highly recommend them if you love fresh flowers in the house, but you don’t like to spend money on them.


Fog Proof Goggles

The kids love these goggles… they’ve been using them for a couple of years now.  They are adjustable, they’re fog-proof, they’re sturdy, and they unclip in the back so they’re easy to put on and take off.  We love these and highly recommend them!


Yeti Rambler Jr.

We bought these for both kids and we love them.  They’re made from stainless steel, so they withstand drops, they don’t sweat, they’re dishwasher safe, and they keep drinks cold for hours upon hours.  Both of our kiddos take these to school every single day and they use them all summer when we’re on the go, and they have held up beautifully for YEARS.


Hair Elastics

We bought this pack of 2,000 hair elastics for Olivia, and they are perfect for braids, ponytails, and other hairstyles.  They’re ouchless, too, which is important if you have tender headed kiddos like I do.


Barf Bags

Unfortunately, these barf bags are a must if you have kiddos with sensitive stomachs.  I bought this pack of 12 to keep on hand in the car.  The plastic ring makes it easy for the kids to hold wide open so they don’t make a mess (yuck), and then the bag can be twisted up and tucked into a notch to keep it sealed.  I keep one of these up front in the car and in my purse at all times.


Bookmarks with Timers

Our kiddos have to read at least 20 minutes per day for school, and these bookmarks with timers have made reading time so easy and so much fun.  The kids are able to keep track of their time while they read, and then I don’t have to.  ;o)



In addition to all of these things, there are items that we order exclusively from Amazon because they always have the best prices.  I get all of my allergy medications from there – XyzalFlonase Sensimist, and Alaway eye drops – and I also buy all of my daily multivitamins from there.  Gum is also cheapest on Amazon, and so are Maui’s Denstastix treats that she loves so much.  We have ordered all of these items countless times from Amazon and we’ve saved so much money as they’re significantly more expensive at Target and Walmart.


Gift Cards

And don’t forget that when you purchase Amazon gift cards from Amazon, you get to choose from tons and tons of different cards, boxes, and other containers to hold your gift card at no additional cost. 

We’ve purchased this cupcake tin multiple times along with the mini Amazon box (SO CUTE!).  I also love this one for Christmas, this flowery one for teacher’s gifts, this one for baby gifts, and this mermaid one for a little girl.  Oh, and who doesn’t love a rainbow?!  This one is so dang happy!


And that’s it for now, y’all!  I could go on and on, but I’ll stop there.  Be sure to follow along with me on Instagram today as I’m going to be sharing some of my favorite Prime Day deals… I use these two days to go ahead and get a jump start on my Christmas shopping... it's right around the corner, after all!

Happy shopping, y’all!

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

  2. I have SOOO many of these items and agree that they are great! What a good post to pull everything together!
