October Favorites

I’ll be honest, I haven’t done much in the way of trying products or even using that many products this month.  Most of the month was centered on not throwing up so you can imagine that make-up and really pretty much anything involving me being upright, hasn’t really been used this month.

However, there was one thing I tried this month and it worked out great.  So, in addition to not wearing make-up, I rarely wanted to leave the house, especially towards the beginning of October when the nausea was exacerbated by my anxiety meds.  But, at the beginning of every month, I generally go to the store for all the household and toiletry goods that need to be restocked.  So this was a dilemma with an actually easy answer.


I used Amazon Prime Pantry.  It comes with our Prime service.  Basically, for $5.99, Amazon gives you a Pantry box to fill up with random household and grocery items.  And there are coupons available on a lot of the products.  In fact, I think I had 7 dollars worth of coupons which actually covered the cost of the box.  You don’t have to fill up the box, either, and since I don’t have to get a whole lot of things, this worked perfectly for me.

And, overall, I saved about $20 compared to going to the store.  I know this sounds like a commercial, but it was actually amazing.  I’m so thankful to live in the generation where I can shop for the things I need without leaving the couch (especially when I have a difficulty leaving the couch anyway).

Amazon Prime is more than just two-day free shipping.  And they are coming up with new ways to serve their customers all the time.  If you have seen some of my book reviews, you might notice something like this at the bottom of these posts:

I also wanted to let you know that I am a participant in the Amazon Services LLC Associates Program, an affiliate advertising program designed to provide a means for sites to earn advertising fees by advertising and linking to Amazon.com.  These are all things I have used personally.  I wouldn’t recommend something I haven’t tried myself.  Thanks!

I don’t get paid by Amazon to write reviews like these or to write anything for that matter.  If someone does purchase something through my links, then I do get a small earning.  If you haven’t tried Amazon Prime, and you would like to try it for free for 30 days, just click on the link below!

    If it weren’t for Amazon prime I’m pretty sure my household would stop functioning! For me in canada Amazon is drastically cheaper for ALL things baby except clothing because they don’t stock much baby clothing. But everything else is drastically cheaper. So basically everything comes from a quick click rather then a real life shopping trip which means it is also way quicker. Amazon prime is the best.

      Oh yea, we are officially hooked and have been for some time. My husband went to the store to get a hardfloor vacuum cleaner, and when they didn’t have it…ordered it from Amazon. It arrived the next day.

    I love Amazon. One year I thought “You know, I really don’t NEED amazon Prime, I don’t think I will renew it” I think that lasted like 3 months. LOL

    Soooooo worth it!
