Of course, I couldn’t not shop for myself. Here is what I purchased:

Instagram Giveaway

Amazon has partnered with me this year and I’m giving away TWO $500 Amazon Gift Cards. The instructions are in my Instagram Feed and Stories so be sure to follow me there.

Instant Pots & Air Fryers

The Instant Pot

For the last few years, the Instant Pot has been one of the hot deals. In fact, I purchased this exact one a few years ago.

I know many people who have missed the deal and tried to find a similar one throughout the year. Trust me, today is the day to buy it. It’s a huge savings.

Even if you miss out on the deal, this is still one of my most favorite purchases ever.

My Instant Pot now has a permanent residence on my kitchen counter. The Instant Pot makes the best hard-boiled eggs and poached eggs–you will want to check out an accessory kit. This one comes with everything you could possibly need.

For more on how much I LOVE my Instant Pot, be sure to check out the post below.

Air Fryer

If you don’t have an air fryer, I highly recommend getting one. I use it at least five times per week, way more than my Instant Pot.

I roast all sorts of vegetables, heat up veggie burgers and chicken fingers, and pierogies. We’ve even made air-fried donuts and fried pickles. It’s so much healthier than actually frying anything.

An air fryer is basically a mini-convection oven. It takes just minutes to cook your food and you can throw the basket right into your dishwasher.

This is the one I have and use it so much I leave it out on my countertop.

You can even dehydrate fruits and vegetables. We make dried mango, apple chips, and kale chips.

I have video reviews & demos of MOST of these products in my Amazon Storefront. Type the product name into the search bar.

Tineco Mop

This may be the best thing I bought all year. It mops and vacuums at the same time and has a self-cleaning mode. I have the S3 but if I had to buy it again, I would get the S5 which has a larger canister. If you already have the Tineco, their cleaning solution is on deal.

Also, check out these Bose headphones. I mention them in this blog post. My husband’s had them for years and it’s one of his favorite things.

Personally, I love the OpenRun bone conduction headphones by Shokz. They allow you to hear the outside world without compromising sound and they’re super lightweight. And I still use my AirPods every day.


Besides the Instant Pot, one of the best things I’ve purchased on Prime Day is my Kindle Paperwhite now waterproof!

If I were buying a new Kindle right now, this is the one I would get. Not only is the Oasis waterproof but it also feels more like a book as you turn the pages. Plus, it has a larger screen and charges quicker than the Paperwhite.

And, you can read in the bath or at the pool or beach.

Before buying the Paperwhite, I had a Fire but could not read with the glare from the sun. This Kindle goes everywhere with me.

If you have an older model that you would like to trade-in, Amazon does offer a trade-in program, which can save you 20% on a new Kindle E-reader (limit 1 per customer) + get an Gift Card equal to an appraised value of your old device. My current Kindle would get me a $25 gift card.


What a great deal on this iPad!

Kids Fire Edition

My kids both have Kindle Fires. Is it as good as an iPad? For games, no, in my opinion. But it gives your child access to tons of age-appropriate games an extensive library of age-appropriate books. I recommended buying the models with built-in extra storage. Otherwise, you’ll be purchasing a storage card in the future.

I love the Kindle’s no questions asked warranty. I already used the two-year worry-free warranty and got a free replacement.

Amazon Echos

Echo Show

I’ve never seen a better deal on the Echo Dot. With kids home now more than ever, they need lots of reminders. My kids use their Echo Show every day.

My daughter even uses hers to watch Netflix’s “Stranger Things.”

Tip: you can also use the Echo Dot as an intercom system. Just ask Alexa to “drop in.”


While the Skylight Calendar is not on deal, their frame is on deal. Also, this Echo Show 15 is a comparable alternative, and it’a great price!

Head on over to Instagram for details and make sure you’re following me there.

Home Electronics

eero Mesh Router

Ever since we bought this eero mesh router, we’ve had zero internet problems. We tried the Google Nest but this was better. If you think your internet’s been spotty lately, this should help.

Ring Doorbell

This hard-wired Ring video doorbell is a best-seller on Amazon and it’s a great deal today!


I don’t know why we waited so long to get an outdoor camera. This 2-pack Blink camera is a great deal on Prime Day. We have one outside our front door and garage. Not only do you get notifications, you can playback videos throughout the day.

“Cord-Cutting”: Get Rid of Cable

If you’ve been thinking of getting rid of cable, there’s no better time than now.

We cut the cord more than seven years ago and haven’t looked back.

But you need the proper equipment:

Fire Stick

My house gets access to my non-cable shows through the Roku device and these Kindle Fire Sticks. Simply, stick these into your television, download the apps you need, and voila, goodbye, cable.

This one is voice-activated.

Health and Wellness

Orgain Protein Powder

My favorite protein powder is on sale. We also love the kids version.

I bought a portable blender that I’m obsessed with, basically a knock-off BlendJet. You can find this one on sale today.

Speaker of protein drinks, this is my go-to frother. And yes, you can use it for so much more than mixing protein powder. Check out some of the ways I use my frother.

Resistance Bands

I’ve had resistance bands for years but now that Peloton has classes specifically designed to use band for strength training, I’m using them more than ever. Check out this blog post about other accessories you’ll want to use if you use the Peloton app, bike, or Tread.


We got TRX a few years ago. This is a great price plus there’s a coupon for an extra 30-percent off.

Peloton Bike

The Peloton Bike is on Prime Day. This includes both the Original Bike and the Bike Plus.

This Echelon Smart bike is on also on sale for Prime Day.

Check out my spin bike reviews here.

Peloton Guide

I love the Peloton Guide for strength training. You can read my full review here. While you do need a Peloton membership, you don’t need Peloton equipment. And, you can stream almost all of Peloton’s classes.

Rowing Machine

I got this rower this year and love it for doing the Peloton Row classes.

Smart Measuring Tape

I bought this tape recently to keep track of my body measurements. It can be hard to see the changes in your body with just the scale. It syncs to an app on your phone.

Apple Watch

I love my Apple Watch. In fact, it’s so old, that it’s practically obsolete. You can get this newer one on Prime Day.

Yoga Mat

If you’re in the market for a new yoga mat, I have this one. I also love my foldable yoga mat.

Revlon One-Step Hair Dryer and Volumizer

I’ve been using the Revlon brush (this is the new one) for a few years now and it’s one of the things I can’t live without. It cuts my drying time in half and gets my hair tame without the frizz. You can read more about it here in this blog post.

Revlon just came out with this flat brush but I haven’t tried it yet.

Dyson Hair Tools

If you’re interested in the Dyson, there’s no deal on Prime Day but you can learn how I saved a ton on my Dyson AirWrap.

I also love the AirStrait which I recently bought. It dries and straightens my hair in just 10 minutes.

Other Favorites

Roomba iRobot

A couple of years ago, I bought another brand of robotic vacuum to replace my Roomba and I hate it.

If you’ve been waiting for Prime Day to get a new Roomba, check out this one or this one.


If you’ve been wanting AirTags, now is the time to get them.

If you want an alternative, I love the Tile and included it in my gift guide for hot mess moms like me. Stop wasting time looking for your keys. This Bluetooth tracker makes my life so much easier.

23 and Me

This DNA kit is on major sale today.
