How to Prepare for Amazon Prime Day

Amazon Prime Day 2018 is less than a week away! Are you ready?!

Raise your hand if you’re excited for Amazon Prime Day 2018!!! {ME!!!} I honestly don’t know how moms survived in the days before Amazon Prime. It has saved my life sooooooo many times when life is crazy busy. Need to plan a dinosaur birthday party for your 3 year old this weekend? No problem! No need to load all the kids in the car and drag them around to 5 different stores all day long looking for everything like you used to. Just hop on the computer during nap time, click around Amazon to get your fun, themed decorations, party favors, presents, and/or games- add to cart. And done! I seriously planned my son’s last party in less than 30 minutes. {Without having to pay for gas money or shipping! BAM!} Motherhood requires a whole lot of balancing and juggling, especially when it comes to time- so I LOVE how much time Amazon Prime saves. Plus getting to shop the sales and check out the reviews makes me a total Amazon-lover! Back to school shopping for 4 kids? I got this! {If you haven’t tried doing your back to school shopping online– girl! You NEED to!} But my VERY favorite thing about Amazon Prime is, of course, AMAZON PRIME DAY!!!! It’s like Christmas in July with all of the killer deals {some of them better than Black Friday!} and I love using it to stock up for future birthday parties, gifts for the holidays, etc. And every year it just gets better. This year it will be a full 36 hours chock-full of deals.
