Amazon Prime Day 2018
Okay, guys! Where my Amazon Prime lovers at?! ??♀️ Seriously, Joe and I have been Amazon Prime members for years now, and there’s a package delivered to my door at least once a week. I’m not even kidding! We buy everything off of Amazon Prime because #1 – I’m super lazy and hate going to the stores and #2 – two day shipping!! Apparently, I’m also super impatient.
So since there’s all this hype around Amazon Prime day and it can be a little overwhelming, I’m breaking things down for you and sharing my favorite deals from the sale!
What You Need To Know
This is an event. Even though prices are pretty decent on Amazon year-round (believe me, I’m the cheapest MOFO ever and don’t ever spend a ton of money on anything) – on Amazon Prime Day, a bunch of products go on crazy sale for just a day and a half. The only downside is that the sale is only available for Amazon Prime members, so if you’re not a member yet, you might wanna sign up ASAP. Believe me, it’s totally worth it. We order from Amazon so much we pretty much make up the annual fee in what we save on shipping within a couple of months.
When does the sale start?
Amazon Prime Day starts today! July 16th at 3pm EST and runs through tomorrow, July 17th.
I’ll be doing my best to keep these updated as the sale goes on, but right now, here’s what’s worth checking out! I’ve already got a bunch of deals I’m watching and I can’t wait for them to go live! Remember, deals are happening at different times throughout the sale, so as time goes by, new stuff will pop up that you might wanna buy!

Contigo Travel Mugs: On sale for $21.99; Regularly $31.40 (Save 31%) – Once you’ve brewed your coffee, you need somewhere to put it, and these travel mugs are perfect. You get two of them for a little over twenty bucks so I think that’s pretty decent. (Black + Silver ones are the cheapest).
Samsonite Two-Piece Luggage Set: On sale for $199.99; Regularly $329.99 (Save 64%) – I’ve been needing to upgrade my luggage set and this might be it. Love the 360 degree spinner wheels because pulling luggage without those wheels is a total pain in the butt.

Fisher Price Baby Dome: On sale for $43.88; Regularly $69.99 (Save 37%) – We have this for Riley and we love it! It’s perfect for the beach and we’ll be taking it with us on our beach vacay later this month! It totally closes too in case you want baby to be nice and enclosed in there.
Newborn to Toddler Baby Rocker: On sale for $35.54; Regularly $54.99 (Save 35%) – We have a rocker for Riley (not this same one) but it’s one of our baby essentials because every once in a while you’ll need to put your little one down while you’re doing something. I keep ours in our bathroom, that way I have somewhere to put Riley down whenever I’m getting ready.
Rainforest Music & Lights Deluxe Gym: On sale for $39.89; Regularly $59.95 (Save $20.06) – This is the cutest little activity mat but some of these can be super pricey! This price point is awesome and given that your little one will spend so much time on these, it’s totally worth it.
Fisher Price 3-in-1 Activity Center: On sale for $62.91; Regularly $99.99 (Save $37.08) – This is so practical. Riley’s been using her activity center for a couple months now and she loves it. This one’s great because it transitions with your baby as they get older, so it starts off as a mat, then becomes a jumper, and then a little station they can stand around and play with. So cute!
Rock-N-Play: On sale for $38.93; Regularly $59.99 (Save $21.06) – This is a life saver for so many mamas with babies that don’t sleep well. We actually used this for Riley when she was about 2 months old but she didn’t love it (she was a TERRIBLE sleeper and nothing rally worked besides the sleep training we did). That being said, tons of mamas SWEAR BY THIS, so it might be worth trying if you need a good night’s rest.
Soothing Motions Bassinet: On sale for $66.38; Regularly $149.99 (Save $83.61) – This deal is pretty unreal because that’s an amazing price for a bassinet. We actually bought the Halo bassinet for Riley and looking back, I wish we had gotten this one instead. The Halo was just way too pricey and this would have worked just as well at a fraction of the price.
