I love to shop locally. But sometimes it’s just not possible. Like when my second grader comes home from school with a letter that says “Please bring 2 plain white tshirts to school on Wednesday” and I am only seeing this letter Monday morning as I tuck his lunch into his backpack. Or when we get a late invitation to a birthday party and the present closet is empty. As a working mom I can’t always run out to the toy store or clothing store. In these cases I use Amazon.com And not just Amazon but my Amazon Prime account.
Not only do I get FREE 2-day shipping on anything marked Prime without a minimum but I also have access to watch over 40,000 movies and TV episodes instantly and I can borrow books from the Kindle Owners’ Lending Library.
This week I ordered Spry toothpaste. It flouride free and made with Xylitol. It’s expensive and hard to find so I bulk ordered 6 and it only cost me $6 a tube instead of $8.50. And 2 day free shipping!! In fact, I always find deals with Amazon Prime.
They have a great gluten-free section in their grocery department. My little guy and I are both recently gluten-free so I use Amazon Prime to search for new products. With 2 day free shipping I always have new snacks to try in the house. The latest was these Enjoy Life Cocoa Loco Chewy bars.
The cost to join Amazon Prime program is $99 a year but if you take into account you can drop your Netflix account at $8 a month (or $96) plus you get the free lending library and free shipping the whole year long you’ll see what a great deal it is.
