Are You “Primed” And Ready To Shop

Happy Tuesday friends! Can someone please tell me who thought it was a good idea to have the Nordstrom Anniversary Sale and Amazon Prime Day all in a 6 day period? Are you kidding me? #stopthemadness

So for those of us who shopped the #Nsale last week and have caught our breath, today is the day for all the Amazon Prime members to get their shop on. I gotta’ tell that I’m still kinda new to the Prime Day. This is my second year and maybe I’m just #aslowlearner but I have a hard time figuring out what I should be buying.

So just exactly what is Prime Day you ask?

 “Amazon’s smorgasbord of deals — pretty much “Black Friday in July.” More than a million products will be discounted, but not all at the same time, and not all for the duration of the event. Some will be available only during certain hours, for example, while others may sell out”

Best I can tell there are new items on sale for a limited amount of time throughout the day. Well I don’t know about you, but I don’t have time to sit at my computer all day long and watch to see what’s on sale.

Having said that, I did gather a few things that you might want to add to your Amazon Cart today.



This Echo was my first Prime Day purchase last year and we have loved it. Some friends had one and they used it all the time, so I got one for Kent. We keep “her” downstairs and ask “Alexa” to play whatever music we’re feeling at the moment. We really need to figure out how to make the most of her and find new ways to use her.


After we got the ECHO and got hooked on being to play music on request I wanted one for our upstairs. I purchased an echo dot and keep it in our bathroom to listen to music when I’m getting ready or just doing things upstairs. It’s got a really good sound for such a small device and at this price you could stash them all over the house. I wish you could somehow hook them together almost like indoor speakers. If you know how to do that, please share.


WOW! This seems like a great deal and would make a great thing to have on hand for Christmas gifts.


I’ve been looking at one of these Ninja blenders for a while. My Kitchen Aid blender has about lived it’s life and I’m thinking this might be the heir apparent. For $50 there’s not much to lose. I think a VitaMix would be awesome, but I don’t use a blender frequently enough to justify that price and I think this is kinda like the cousin to it, so that’s close enough for me.


I keep seeing all this chatter about Air Fryers. If you’ve been thinking about getting one, this is probably the day to do it.

Here’s another one that I keep hearing about and do actually know a few people who have done some version of these. This is a great deal. $99, normally $299.




Okay, there are just a few of the deals that are available. It’s like falling down a rabbit hole and I could just continue to list things for you, but you get the point. If you found something already that I missed and you just know I need #hahahaha, drop it in the comments.

OH, and again being a newbie to this whole Prime Day thing, last night the 6 qt. InstantPots were like $50 and today they’re more than that, so I guess maybe it was a limited time offer? Some of these may be the same, so if you want it, GRAB it!

Happy Tuesday my friends and Happy shopping.

    I haven’t shopped Prime Day . My mom gave me her air fryer over the weekend because she got a new larger one (because you know clearly 2 retired people need a ginormous one but whatever). I should really get on there and hunt around. Or maybe I shouldn’t! Ha!!!

    • July 17, 2018 / 8:26 pm

      I did good! Only ordered the Ninja (and some coffee for the beach…had it sent to KT to bring down) Hope you had a great day. I guess we were both uber busy. Talk to you tomorrow for sure. XOXO

    I ordered the Echo Show and that was it for my Prime Shopping and it was half price a couple of days before the sale so I haven’t really shopped the Prime Sale per say. As you said, I don’t have the time nor do I care to browse for the deals all day long. Goodness! I’m about “saled” out at this point.

    Wow! Our blender went kaput a while ago. That Ninja blender is a great deal! I’ve been hearing good things about it!

    • July 17, 2018 / 8:24 pm

      Fingers crossed, it’ll be here tomorrow! I’ll keep you posted. XO

      Yeah, my mom actually called me yesterday and I ordered one for her (they don’t have Prime). It is overwhelming and coming on the heels of Nordstrom my wallet is empty?

    I did snag an air fryer- so glad it is one of your recommendations- I don’t feel as guilty! 😉

      Fun!!! If we ate much fried food I’d be really tempted! Happy healthy frying!! XO

    Great blender! That sale had me so mad the first day when the site was coo coo. Thank goodness it got fixed to snag all this goodness!

    • July 18, 2018 / 7:06 am

      For real! That was so aggravating and much worse than the other sale even. Time to make the smoothies. LOL XOXO

    It was a little extra confusing shopping Prime Day this year because the site kept crashing! I did manage to get a couple of things though. 🙂 I do think Amazon devices like you got are the best bets on Prime Day! It seems like the savings on those are more substantial! Thanks for sharing your picks!

      I agree. It seems like most things are just same ol’ same ol’, but if you’re looking for something electronic it’s a good day to get it. XO

    I’ve been hearing so much lately about the air fryer, too, but didn’t take the plunge. We love Alexa, too, but really have no idea how to use it other than music, weather, and a timer.

    • July 18, 2018 / 7:08 am

      Us too. Oh a timer! That’s a GREAT idea. Thanks for the tip!
