Amazon Round Up: October 21

It's no secret that I'm a huge fan of Amazon. You really can't beat the convenience of 2 day shipping. We have been Amazon customers for YEARS (maybe 8?). They have slowly added different services over the years (Pantry, Fire Stick with streaming, Subscribe/Save, etc.) that for us have made the yearly membership cost worth it. For quick 2 day shipping and access to almost everything we would ever need it has paid for itself over and over again. If you have never tried prime, you can get a free 30 day trial here.

I occasionally share deals that I come across on Facebook, but I thought that as we approach Christmas that it would be fun to have a weekly round up here on the blog. I will post baby items, house items, toys, etc. Some things I have used and some I haven't but that we are interested in OR have great reviews. Please remember that Amazon prices change FAST, so from the time I post to the time you read the prices may have changed. If that happens I'M SORRY. It's part of the game. I'll always leave the price written underneath so you can double check.This post contains affiliate links, which means I received a small commission from each purchase from my direct link.

First up is an AMAZING diaper deal. In order to maximize the savings I recommend first signing up for Amazon Family. This is FREE. This is Amazon's program for diaper subscriptions which gives you 20% off (YES TWENTY!). Please don't run away when you hear "subscriptions". Yes, you have to subscribe to receive this order every month or every 2 months, etc. BUT you can cancel these subscriptions AS SOON AS they arrive. So don't feel tied down. I usually cancel my subscription as soon as it arrives in the mail. 

These diapers usually stay around the $42 mark which is roughly 24cents a diaper. Which is NOT a deal. If you buy this without subscribing, it's $32 (19cents/diaper). BUT if you subscribe it takes the price to $25.59 (15cents/diaper). THAT is a very good price (and the lowest to date on Amazon)! 
with $2 off coupon: 
Just to compare- Size 3- 174 pack at Walmart and Target is $32, which will not give you the 20% off or free shipping (unless you have Walmart's shipping pass or Target's red card). :)

I'm a pretty huge fan of cleaning with microfiber rags. This is an amazing deal for 48 (!!) rags. I personally LOVE using different colored rags for different spaces (mirrors/glass, polishing, counters, etc). Read all about how I color code and organize my cleaning supplies here. I grabbed my rags at Target, so while I haven't personally used these, they have amazing reviews. The average price of this pack is $24 and the current price of $17.99 is the LOWEST PRICE it's ever been! And if we needed more I would have already bought them ;) 
We love LEGOs in our house! While we don't need another set, this classic supplement set is amazing to make up for lost pieces! Two of my favorite lego hacks? Color code them for storage and find fun designs online that your kids can recreate (instead of buying new sets every time). This set is $14.79 and is only FOUR CENTS from the lowest price ever on Amazon! Stock up now for Christmas!
The next three deals will be add-on items which means you need to spend $25 on products shipped by Amazon. I like to save these items in my wishlist and add them to my order when I am placing a $25 order! These markers are $2.79 for a 20-pack! This particular marker has been discontinued by Crayola (so what?) so the price is over half off  the regular list price!
Sticking with the coloring theme, this Melissa and Doug coloring pad is adorable. It usually ranges in the $6 range (although it's recently been as high as $15 (!!). 
I already mentioned that we love LEGOs, and we love giving LEGOs as gifts! This is a great price as an add on item (free ship with qualifying $25 order). We have had a few of these sets that create 3 different finished pieces using the same pieces. These sets usually range from $6-$8. 

Also I have photographed our Master Bathroom Vanity that I've been promising to post about for a month. I edited pictures yesterday and it'll post next week! We are slowly checking off our fall bucket list items and I CANNOT BELIEVE we are in the second half of the month. What in the world?


1. Fall Bucket List: Apple Orchard, carve a pumpkin, craft with fallen leaves, take our Christmas card picture, bake pumpkin bread.

2. Finish our stairs. I shared that we were working on our basement staircase here. We are currently in a standstill because we don't love how the stain is taking to the wood. We have bought stripper (that was awkward) and we will see how that works. Seriously I can't recover. My point is, we need to decide whether to continue with the stain or swap the look all together.

3. I shared about how I was able to snag $60 in Home Depot gift cards to jump start our kid's room redecorating project. I am excited to get going and I honestly think choosing a paint color this month and purchasing supplies will be a win! Maybe I'll share an inspiration post with the direction we are headed for our kid's shared bedroom?

4. Speaking of swagbucks- I have a goal to fund our Christmas through swagbucks gift cards. Having earned $60 in a month of barely trying, I think setting a goal for the kids of $200 by Christmas would be fantastic. I would need to do $70 a month to surpass that goal (and I have $20 sitting in my account currently) so $50 more dollars this month!

5.  Make an extra machine payment. I am currently paying on my embroidery machine that cost me the price of a small car. I got a 0% financing deal for 4 years which is GREAT but of course I'd love to have it paid off sooner! We have decided that while we want to buy a new home, we are committed to paying off our debt first and this is part of our debt (well my debt). So #goals.

6. Re-listen to Crystal Paine's Goodbye Survival Mode. I took major advantage of a free 3 month trial of Audible these past few months and have loved it way more than I thought. Grabbing her book was almost an afterthought. But I am SO GLAD I DID. My goal this month is to re-listen to it. It was seriously that good. Also if you haven't tried Audible, click here for a free 30 day trial.
