This Prime Day, live your best life with some great deals because you know what? You deserve it. And, make sure to come back and check this list often. We will be updating it frequently during Prime Day(s). 

Yayyyy!!!! It’s Prime Day!!! For two days I will be glued to my Amazon account searching for the best deals for me, my friends, and family (Christmas in July!!!).  

Will I be buying things I need? Sure! Will I have to convince my husband we “need” them? Sure! 😊  

Are you a bargain hunter? Or do you prefer not getting your hands dirty, paying full price because you can’t be bothered with finding “the deal?” I am the former. My favorite thing to do is find a great deal. If you can’t be bothered or don’t have time to do the work, let me help you save money on some cool stuff you may not know you need. This Prime Day, live your best life with great deals.  

I come from a family of competitors. We were all determined athletes led by my dad (the coach) and my mom (the manager) and it’s how I learned to tackle just about everything in life. So, I think of shopping as a sport. It’s not just about getting stuff (though, that’s not bad). I get an incredible rush from putting the work in, exploring all the options, and uncovering a spectacular deal. It’s in my blood – and I do it very well. 

So, I’m going get you started with some things that we can all use. Okay, most of us. And if you already have something, maybe you can start your holiday shopping with these great deals. I’ll be adding to my list over the two days of Prime Day so check back frequently. My focus will be on things to make your life a little easier … because who can’t use that?  

I am a wife, as I mentioned, and I am also a mom to a teenage daughter and a pre-teen son. So, I will also slip some things on my list that will make them happy and make your life easier. (Especially the teen daughter!) As they say, “happy wife – happy life,” but it is even more appropriate with teenagers living under your roof. When they’re smiling it’s like the world explodes with love.

Don’t forget these deals are available for Prime Day members only. So, if you’d like to take advantage of the deals, sign up for a 30-Day FREE trial now! Let us make the world explode with love! Happy shopping.

  • iWalk Small Portable Charger 4500mAh Ultra-Compact Power Bank

    I love my family, but they are horrendous at keeping their phones charged. This portable power bank is a game changer. It is not too big and you do not have to worry about cords or cables. Our portable chargers have kept our family connected to each other as well as social media and YouTube. Thanks, Mom! You’re welcome, kids.

  • Lightweight Compression Packing Cubes

    My life is complete chaos; until it comes time to pack for a trip. I am a nut about staying organized and, more importantly, not having to iron once I get to my destination. I have two tips for achieving these goals: 1) Roll your clothes. 2) Packing Cubes. More specifically, THESE packing cubes because they offer a compression feature to maximize storage. My secret is packing everything in my cubes for the trip there; then packing and compressing for the way home so I have room for everything I bought.

  • Kasa Matter Smart Plug w/ Energy Monitoring

    I love having a smart home, although I am not fancy enough to buy each item it takes for full connectivity. That is why I rely on these smart plugs. They connect to Apple Home, Google, Alexa, and more. I use them to set timers for when we are away and for waking the kids on school days. (Evil laugh)

  • iRobot Roomba i4 EVO (4150) WiFi Connected Robot Vacuum

    I am pretty self-deprecating when it comes to my parenting skills (or lack thereof), but when I tell you I cannot clean a house it is God’s honest truth. Even if you are one of those people who claim to like housework, you must admit it would be pretty nice to check the vacuuming off the list week after week without ever lifting a finger. Take advantage of this deal. You deserve it, Queen.

  • Vacuum Sealer Machine Food Vacuum Sealer

    Do you ever open your refrigerator and audibly gasp because it seems No. One. In. Your. Family. Can. Close. A. Container? Wet foods dry out. Dry foods become too moist and moldy. I have seen infomercials for these vacuum sealers for years and I am finally biting the bullet. Who doesn’t love a new gadget? And I know the kids will love to use it and watch their food shrink into the bag.

  • Bella Immersion Hand Blender

    You know what’s the worst? Washing a blender. Those blades can be sharp, and you must stick your hand down in there so you can get the gunk out. NO MORE! I love my immersion blender. This thing is great for everything from tomato sauce to soups to protein shakes and so much more. And the best part? You won’t have to clean that stupid blender.

  • Gravity Electric Salt & Pepper Grinder

    They say you eat first with your eyes, then your mouth. It is the same way with cooking. I love to cook, and when I have tools that make me feel more adept, I think my food tastes better. This electric salt and pepper grinder may seem like something you do not NEED, but it is a guilty pleasure that will make you happier in the kitchen. And when the cook is happy, everyone wins.

    I love this thing and so does my daughter. We have quite different hair types: mine is fine and relatively short compared to her long thick hair. This hair dryer/hot brush combo is easy to use. It gives me volume and smooths and straightens my daughter’s hair.

  • Anker Power Strip Surge Protector

    When it comes to electronics, you definitely get what you pay for. If you buy a cheap power strip, you’re not going to get max power to the items plugged in. You may not notice if it’s a lamp, but when you’re trying to power your electronics, it can be really frustrating. I’m a big fan of Anker products and this is a great deal on a great power strip.

    You may have heard that Jeff Kurkjian’s wife Emily is expecting in August and he just bought these. As a mom of two I wish I had them. Cool when you need it. Hot when you need it. I won’t go into details, but if you are a breastfeeding mama or know one, these are great.

    Do you floss? I don’t floss. I know it’s good for me, but I’m terrible at doing it. I do, however, love my electric toothbrush. I’m a much better brusher when I use it. I can’t help but think that I would actually use this water pick, too.

    Shhh. Don’t tell my daughter, but I’m thinking of getting one of these to use on the door she’s supposed to use to take the dog for a walk. But I don’t think she actually takes him out when we’re not home. Now I’ll have video proof.

    They say you shouldn’t ever buy your wife a vacuum – or any other cleaning supplies – but I don’t know anyone who wouldn’t be thrilled with a Dyson. Feel free to call my husband because I think this will fit nicely under my tree this December.

  • Collapsible Microwave Food Cover

    This thing will change your life. It’s one of my favorite things in my house because it prevents food from baking on the inside of the microwave, making it difficult to clean. It is collapsible for easy storage. It comes in a pair and is a multitasker, so you can use it as a microwave cover and the other as a bowl or colander. I seriously love mine.

  • Silicone Microwave Popcorn Popper

    If you really are what you eat, then my daughter is popcorn. It used to drive me crazy how much microwave popcorn she would eat, but then I got one of these and she pops the corn on her own. None of the chemicals you get in those microwave bags, and you don’t even need oil. It’s truly magical.

  • Hamilton Beach Portable Slow Cooker

    Don’t you love a good slow cooker? I have this one and use it mostly for parties (sausage with peppers & onions, chili, bbq). I remember my mom using her’s all the time when I was growing up. She worked full time, so she would start something before work and it would be ready at dinner. Magic!

  • Hamilton Beach Stand Mixer

    Have you ever watched a cooking show when the chef or baker is using a stand mixer? It seems so grown up and decadent to me. I can’t bake, so I never wanted to invest, but at $50 off this stand mixer is a great deal – and makes a great gift!

  • Cast Iron Dutch Oven

    This cast iron Dutch oven is similar to a much more expensive name brand, but just as good if you ask me. I had it on my Christmas list a few years ago and find myself using it often. Non-stick, great quality, and makes a great appearance. Oh. And it’s more than half-off!

  • Pop Corners Variety Pack

    My kids are at the age where they go through snack faster than I can buy them. I’ve resorted to having them delivered on a regular basis. They know they’ll get a box once a month and I’m not replenishing them a day before. It’s a lesson in … something, I’m sure.

  • Digital Frame

    Many years ago, we bought a digital frame for my inlaws and we periodically send them photos directly to the frame so it’s always updating. My heart was warmed when I found out my father-in-law watches the years’ worth of photos every morning as he drinks his coffee. Don’t deny your loved ones the chance to watch your children grow …
