July 10th is Amazon Prime Day! You know… it’s like Black Friday shopping deals in July. Starting today, July 10, 2017 at 9:00am, Amazon releases a new deal as often as every five minutes for 30 straight hours. If my math is correct, that’s around 360 deals!
First, if you’re not an Amazon Prime member , consider signing up for a 30-day free trial here.
Second, if you don’t already have a shopping cart started, start one now. If you’re like me, I always keep a running Amazon cart going as my shopping list. Things like the bathroom supplies, pet supplies, summer reading books for the kids, etc. Then, I order a bunch of items at the same time.
To be 100% open with you, this post does contain affiliate links, but they are all to products I use and love myself. I actually went to my own shopping cart history to be sure I included them all to show you. If you shop thru these links (which I’d really appreciate) , I’ll receive a small commission, but at no extra cost to you.
Here are few things in my Amazon shopping cart:
These Handcandy headphones are my favorite headphones. I bought them when I worked in a very quiet accounting office. They look like a beaded necklace and offered a little color to my otherwise plain attire. They come in lots of colors to match your style and at only $14.89, you can’t go wrong.
Kid’s Summer Reading
Every July I jump on Amazon and order the kids’ required summer reading books. Last year, one of the books actually became unavailable in Barnes & Noble because so many schools required it. I’m so glad I got this requried reading book early this year.
Shark Rocket Vacuum
You will love this vacuum! It’s lightweight, but has amazing power. You actually see the vast volumes of dirt, dust, pet hair, and other stuff it’s picking up off your floors and pulling out of your carpets because it has a clear canister (no bags). I’ve had my Shark Rocket stick vacuum for almost two years now and absolutely love it. It goes from hardwood to tile, thin area rugs to thick carpet with a click of a button on the handle. My mom, who can no longer lug around her heavy vacuum, also easily uses this one. Love it!
DeWalt Rotary Sander Supplies
If you refinish furniture as often as I do, then you know that a rotary sander is your most prized tool. Occassionally you have to replace the sanding pad and dust bag. I also order these sanding discs in bulk.
Dove Mousse Volume
I’ve tried just about every type of mousse in Target and CVS. Some are sticky, some dry out my hair, and most leave my thin hair still very flat. Dove Volume Amplifier Mousse is the best (and I don’t say that lightly). It actually makes my hair softer (like a leave-in conditioner), yet offers tons of volume and hold without being the least bit sticky. Absolutely love this product and buy several bottles at a time just to be sure I don’t run out!
Dove Shea Butter Soap
Since we’re talking about Dove products, you need to hear about their soap too. It really is super soft and moisturizes your skin. I don’t use heavy-perfumed anything, but the mild smell of this shea butter soap is heavenly.
Olay Regenerist Micro-Sculpting Cream
Let’s face it, we’re getting older and those wrinkles are creeping up on us. When I was in my twenties and thirties I just needed Olay’s daily moisturizer, but one day in early my forties I woke up and really took a close look at my skin. Yup it was starting. You know when you haven’t seen someone for a few years, they’re now in their early 50’s, and their skin has suddenly changed overnight. At the time I was still a decade away from 50, but did not want to be that person. I started using Olay’s Fragrance-Free Regenerist Micro-Scultping Cream in my early 40’s and it actually seemed to reverse and tighten the wrinkles that had started on my face, neck, and chest. Get it ladies! It worked for me.
doTERRA Lavender Essential Oil
If you or your kids have trouble sleeping, you have to get this lavender oil. I’ve been telling everyone about it, including my pregnant friend who’s been getting headaches. I’ve been using lavender oil for the past two years and sleeping through the night like a log! Place 10 drops in a roller ball bottle and fill the rest of the bottle with fractionated coconut oil. Rub the oil on the bottom of your feet or on your wrists at night and you’ll be asleep in minutes. Trust me on this one.
Regenepure Shampoo, Head & Shoulders, & Collegen Peptides
So as I mentioned earlier, we’re all getting older. When you enter your forties, hair starts to thin. For me it was pretty drastic until I finally found Regenepure NT Shampoo. All I can say is that it worked for me. I use it every third day. On the other days, I use Head & Shoulders Shampoo with almond oil. Ladies, it’s not the heavy dandruff shampoo you think. It moisturizes your scalp and softens your hair (but doesn’t weigh it down). My hair has tons of volume from this shampoo. I also take Vital Proteins Collegen Peptides to strengthen my hair and nails and tighten my skin. It’s a tasteless powder that completely dissolves in any cold liquid, including water. It’s I can actually see a difference in my hair and skin with these products.
Organic Fields of Heather Natural Deodorant
My daughter is allergic to most deodorants on the market (even the natural ones) and we won’t use deodorants with aluminum in them. Organic Fields of Heather is the one natural deodorant that she can use without breaking out in an itchy rash. The blueberry lemonade smells great too.
Almay Clear Complexion Foundation & Mary Kay Timewise Soap
There are two skin products in my supply that I could not live without. My skin used to breakout – even into my forties, until I found Almay’s Clear Complexion and Mary Kay’s Timewise soap. If I run out of this Timewise soap I immediately breakout – so I make sure I never do! Liquid foundations used to add to my breakouts, but Almay’s Clear Complexion is different. It prevents them. It also tones down the redness in my skin. And the best part, after you apply just a tiny amount, it feel like you applied a light powder rather than a liquid. Love them both!
Blue Buffalo Dog Food
Here’s the dog food we feed our own pup. We used to feed her I**MS, until she developed several lumps and I did some research! Now, I give her Blue Buffalo dry and wet food. She loves both!
