It's on, people! Get your shopping cart wheels oiled up, because Amazon Prime Day is here and in full swing!
If you've been living under a rock (or a vintage camper) and don't know what Prime Day is, it's a 2-day event where Amazon discounts LOTS & LOTS of stuff on their site.
I know Amazon prime Day can be super-confusing with so many deals flying around out there, so I thought I'd give your a little primer on Amazon Prime Day and some suggestions of things I love there!
Amazon Prime Day 101
- Shop early and shop often. Deals come and go throughout the 2-day event. If it's a super duper deal and you want it, it's best to just go ahead and buy it NOW. It may not be here 15 minutes from now.
- Amazon Prime Day is a 2-day only event and lasts until Midnight Tuesday, July 16th and then it's over again until next year.
- You do have to be an Amazon Prime Member to get the discounted deals. You can sign up for a FREE 30 day Trial of Amazon Prime HERE though.
- Insider Tip: You can sign up for the FREE 30 day trial of Amazon Prime and get in on all the deals over the next few days and then go ahead and cancel your Prime Membership after that if you wish! And they don't even care! It's not like I'm telling you something Amazon is going to freak out about, they have pretty much set up Prime Day to entice you to try their services and once you try it they are betting you will love it!

Perks For Being An Amazon Prime Member:
- You get to be in on Amazon Prime day deals!
- FREE 2-day Shipping! (Did you notice the FREE part?) And when Amazon is coming to your door every other day this is a game changer (said the girl with 14 Amazon boxes stacked up in the garage).
- Instantly watch thousands of movies and TV programs on Prime Video
FYI: I will be updating this page throughout the sale with additions and items that are sold out, so stop back by to see what's new.
