Are you more of a Target or Amazon addict? I know most “Insta-moms” out there are all about the Bullseye, but over here, we’re full on Amazon addicts. Here are just a few of our favorites from Amazon that I want to shout my love for from the rooftops. Some we’ve had for over a year, others are new to us, but all of them are things we use daily. And full disclosure: this is only supposed to be 5 of our favorite things found on Amazon. But here’s the deal. I suck at limitations and so there will be a few extras. And I’m not even sorry about it, ha.
Current Top 5 Amazon Purchases
(In no particular order)
Produce box (large one here)- our veggies kept wilting in the fridge, so we picked this up a while ago. It’s a miracle worker! No more soft celery or gross veggies. It’s under $20 and we’ve already saved so much money on less wasted greens and veggies. Plus, it also helps to keep the fridge organized!
Cereal dispensers – we’ve had these over a year now and they’re one of my favorite purchases. We try to keep our counters super clear of clutter now that we’re in a smaller kitchen, but these still have a place of honor. The boys are able to get their own cereal and I dont have to worry about anything going stale since these cereal dispensers have airtight seals.
Grape Cutter I get TONS of questions about this. The boys love using it, and I love that I don’t have to worry about choking hazards. It works on grapes and cherry tomatoes and slices them in quarters. So perfect if you have kids!
MagnaCalm – this is my holy grail for all things pregnancy right now. BUT it’s also amazing for anxiety in general. My midwife says this is the one thing she wishes all of her patients would buy. There are so so so many benefits. It helps keep you regular (yep, poop talk – but you know if you’re pregnant this is something we all struggle with). It kicks restless legs to the curb! It helps me wind down and actually be able to sleep at night, and definitely minimizes my nighttime anxieties. I am a huge proponent and have this on auto-ship!
Pregnancy Pillow – y’all. This is my full on boyfriend right now. I had a Snoogle and I’ve tried a million others, but they dont compare AT ALL to this one. I have the pink, just because it was the cheapest at the time. I’m 5’10-11″ and the 55 inch pillow is perfect for me. I promise you will not regret this beauty, and it is full on the only reason I have been able to sleep this entire third trimester! Plus, you can zip off the cover to wash, and even remove or add more filling to the pillow super easily to get your exact perfect comfort level.
And a few more I couldn’t leave out:
Best pillow ever – Speaking of pillows. ORDER THIS RIGHT NOW. These are a gift from the heavens. Like, legit my husband made me buy him one too after he kept stealing mine.
It comes with extra fluff, and has a zippered outer which is awesome with kids and spit up and spills. And means it’s super easy to customize how full or soft or whatever your pillow preference is. LOVE IS NOT A STRONG ENOUGH word for how we feel about these pillows. When we moved, and were without these pillows for 11 days, my husband literally would tell me every night and every morning how much he missed our pillows. I had no idea how much I really loved them until like a week without. Once we unpacked them and slept on them again the first night, I was out like a LIGHT! Super easy to get comfortable on, no matter whether you sleep on your back / side / front / etc, and we are just full on obsessed. And after my mom used one while she was visiting, she ordered her own before she even got home!
Silk pillowcase – because if you’re upgrading your pillow, you need an upgrade to your pillowcase. I have two of these, and ended up buying 2 for the boys as well. I kid you not, there is a noticeable difference when we sleep with these versus any other pillowcase. They are a budget friendly silk, so no insane $50+ pricing here, but still with all the benefits. Since starting to use these about a year ago, my skin is so much better as is my hair. I’m not breaking out like I used to! And the difference in hair, oh. my. gosh. No more crazy frizzy hair! And when I get a blowout, it lasts like twice as long.
Blow dryer I’ve had this blow dryer since 2/2/2018 and it’s THE BEST. I have super thick and curly / wavy hair and this takes me under 10 minutes to dry my hair completely. Plus, since it’s a rounded brush I can add volume and style at the same time.
Shape Mags Classic Set and Accessories Set. The boys can play with these for HOURS, which is awesome. I love that it fosters independent, open ended play, and they can literally build whatever their imagination can think of. We work on colors and shape recognition while we play, and both my 5 and 2 year old are obsessed. The Classic set is under $40, and the Accessories set is under $20.
Silicone milk catcher – how I built almost my entire milk stash! I’ve shared this one a few times and I love that y’all are just obsessed as I am. It’s super easy to use, encourages a let down, and I was always shocked at how much breastmilk I was able to collect.
