I don't know about you, but I absolutely LOVE Amazon Prime! The convenience of having things delivered for free two days later, not having to leave my house for diapers, watching things that aren't available on Netflix, and Audible... oh how I love Audible.
Our house is FULL of things we have purchased from Amazon. From the mattresses in our bedrooms to the toilet paper in our bathroom to the trampoline in the kitchen (Yes, you read that right!), there isn't a room in the house that doesn't have at least 3 things that were purchased from Amazon.
Tomorrow (July 11) is the third annual Prime Day, a day full of incredible deals just for Prime members. It is supposedly bigger than Black Friday, so it is kind of a big deal. First, if you don't have a Prime membership yet, you can sign up for a 30 day free trial here.
One of my absolutely favorite deals is for Audible. New-to-Audible Prime members can listen to audio books for only $8.95 per month for the first 6 months, a savings of 40% or $36. Plus, as an Audible member, you also get 30% off all audiobooks. They have been having amazing sales this summer, and I've gotten a variety of books for myself and the kids for under $5! Sign up here!
If you enjoy reading books on the Kindle (app or device), this deal is for you! Through July 11, 2017, enjoy unlimited reading from over one million titles on any device. Prime Members get 25% off a 6-month Kindle Unlimited membership, get 33% off a 12-month Kindle Unlimited membership, and get 40% off a 24-month Kindle Unlimited membership.
You can even purchase Amazon gift cards to give as gifts.
Some of our favorite Amazon items are listed below (not all are Prime Day deals - though that might change as deals are revealed tomorrow - but they are highly recommended regardless):
Instant Pot 7-in-1, 6 qt. - My family has two, and they are used daily. We use them to make rice, meat and potatoes, hardboiled eggs, stew, even yogurt! We usually have one going with the main dish and one with a side dish. For Christmas, I had both of them cooking a breakfast casserole with hashbrowns, sausage, cheese, and eggs. It was absolute perfection, if I do say so myself ;) **EDIT: The 8 qt Instant Pot is on sale right now!
Viva Naturals Aromatherapy Essential Oil Diffuser - I currently have two diffusers in the house and hope to get two more. I diffuse in the kids' room every night and in my room frequently. I'd like to get one for the bathroom and one for the living room. **This is on sale**
Planet Earth Giftset - My kids actually really enjoy watching Planet Earth. I put it on in the background while they play on the floor during quiet time, and they ask lots of questions about the images shown. **This is on sale**
Erin Condren Hardbound LifePlanner - If you've had your eye on an Erin Condren planner for awhile, it's one of the Prime Day deals! Isn't it gorgeous??
Fire 7 Kids Edition Tablet - We have two of these kid's tablets and I love them. They come with a no-questions-asked 2 year warranty and one year of FreeTime Unlimited which gives your kids access to 15,000 popular apps and games, videos, books, and educational content from PBS Kids, Nickelodeon, Disney, and more. You can have different profiles for each child (up to 4, I believe?), and set a time limit so that the tablet automatically locks when their time is up. **This is on sale**
Regular Kindle Fire 7 with Alexa - This is on sale for only $29.99! I've used it before and it is great. Especially for older kids or teens.
Osmo Genius Kit - My mom has this for my 9 year old sister, and my kids love to use it as well.
Skywalker Trampolines Round Bouncer Trampoline with Enclosure - Remember how you read that we have a trampoline in our kitchen? This is the one, and it is used daily. All three kids can jump on it safely because there is an enclosure with a bar that they hold onto. We've had it for almost 3 years and it is still in great condition.
Portable CD Player with AM/FM Radio - The kids have this cd player in their room and listen to audiobooks every night while they get ready for bed and fall asleep. It is simple enough that the two older kids can start and stop the cd on their own, or skip to their favorite stories. I need to get a second one for the living room. Right now we just use the dvd player for cd's, but I don't like having to keep the tv and dvd player on instead of just a cd player. Waste of electricity, I think.
Regalo 192-Inch Super Wide Gate and Play Yard - We have this around our wood stove and it keeps the kids away from the hearth, wood, stove, and also trash and recycling (which are next to the hearth). I love it because I was always so worried that the kids would fall and hit their heads on the brick hearth, or touch the hot stove and burn themselves. My parents also have one across their living room to keep the kids out of the kitchen (like my newly-crawling nephew).
My computer is about to die and I need to get the kids to bed, but check back here throughout the day tomorrow as I plan to update the list with deals and more favorites!
