What is amazon prime?
We love Amazon Prime and it saves me so much as a busy mom — saves me both money and time! Not only does it save us money on shipping (“Prime” marked items ship free) but we can also access Amazon Prime Video on our TV, iPads and technology devices. Right now, I’ve been catching up on Amazon Prime movies while I get my workout on at the gym! My boys also used the Prime Video app while we traveled to watch movies in the car. I just made sure to download movies or shows they picked into their libraries before we left while I had an internet connection. There are lots of shows and movies for free on Prime. Prime membership is inexpensive for what is included! Find out more by clicking the banner.
How does Amazon Prime Day work?
During Prime Day, different items will go on sale for a limited amount of time. You need to be a Prime member to participate but if you’re not signed up for Prime, you can do a 30-day free trial, and still take advantage of the big sale.

What to buy on Amazon Prime Day 2018?
These are some things I’ve bought as an Amazon Prime member this past year. While I’m not sure what will actually be on sale until the day of, I wanted to round up my recent Amazon purchases that I’ve made in case any of them go on sale! These are all products that I’ve bought with my own moola and can recommend whole-heartedly.
Sensory Friendly Finds
We recently purchased this ANKOVO thermometer since it was an “Amazon’s Choice” product and it had good reviews. It takes a child’s temperature by swiping the forehead or in the ear. So far we are happy with it! We had the Exergen Thermometer before but after it had been dropped a few times, it was time to replace it. It was also a great thermometer.
Melissa & Doug Water Wow! Reusable Color Water Pads
I’ve shared about these Water Wow Water Pads on my Instastories. The boys really enjoy playing with them when we take them with us in the car or in restaurants. They are mess-free, quiet entertainment! Kids seem to really enjoy the reusable, no-mess, paint-with-water drawing pads.
Intex Swim Center Family Lounge Pool
We have purchased this family lounge pool two years in a row now. The boys really enjoy playing in the backyard in this pool on hot days. It was the deepest inflatable pool I could find and my son loves being able to “dive” underwater to find his favorite dive sticks. This year we didn’t inflate the actual seat in the pool so that they had more swimming space.
OXO Tot Perfect Pull Wipes Dispenser
The boys in the household love having baby wipes in the bathroom. I was tired of hiding the plastic baby wipes packages when we were expecting company. This wipes dispenser looks way better in my bathroom and it fits perfectly on the back of the toilet. It dispenses one wipe at a time and it fits a whole package of wipes at one time.
Columbia Women’s Switchback Jacket
I decided it was time to retire the rain jacket I was using since my college dorm days. I bought this Columbia rain jacket and I’m sure I will use it for many years to come. As a mom, I can’t juggle an umbrella and the kiddos but this jacket keeps me dry and my hands are free. It isn’t lined so it even works for warm weather days. It comes in multiple colors, too.
Stomp rocket Dueling Rockets
The boys got this Stomp Rocket Set for Christmas after I picked it up on sale on Amazon. We didn’t play it until the weather warmed up in the spring but it really is pretty cool. They have enjoyed playing it and the neighborhood kiddos usually join them to play. It’s a stompin’ good time!
Fat Brain Toys Squigz Starter Set
The boys love this Squigz starter set. They have been so innovative when playing with them. They stick to our floors and windows so they love to play with them and build with them. They are also an awesome early learning resource and we have practiced everything from counting with them to painting with them.
Mirari Ok To Wake Clock
We bought this clock for our 3-year-old for Christmas since he was waking up very early and wanting to stay up for the day. We didn’t think we had much to lose and maybe, just maybe it would work to keep him in his room a bit longer. Well, with a few nights of practice, he learned very quickly that he should stay in his room until the light on the clock would glow green!
Pure Enrichment MistAire Ultrasonic Cool Mist Humidifier
We bought this cool mist humidifier for my son’s bedroom. My son was getting frequent nosebleeds. My sister in law who is a nurse had the perfect suggestion for us to buy a humidifier and see if that would help at all. Well, it definitely did! We have been using it ever since!
