Finding those little pockets of time in my schedule is so rewarding – I love it. One of the things I have done for years is shop on amazon.com to save me time, money and my sanity. Yes, there are things that are more expensive, but honestly – you can find many things that are very affordable and when you count in the time and expense of driving around to other stores (bargain shopping loss leaders, like I used to do), it truly is a life saver.
As we are preparing to start our new book study, The Fringe Hours, I think it is important to look at our schedules and determine where we can find some of the “fringe” time we often waste. For me, shopping online free’s up time for me, as long as I have a set goal and am intentional.
I thought I would share with you a few things that have found a spot on my monthly subscribe and save order. I have one order a month that arrives at the very beginning – and I always order FIVE items because you save an additional 15% on your monthly subscribe and save order. In addition you can combine that savings with coupon savings – YES!
As a side note – when you shop on amazon and use my affiliate link, you are contributing the the support of our SIX Compassion girls the blog sponsors. I will say we are likely going to be able to sponsor a few more girls in the next few months due to your amazing use of my affiliate link and the money we have to bless these girls!! I will be getting a new image with all the girls picture on it!!
Yogi Egyptian Licorice Tea
I love this Yogi licorice tea – it is my favorite right now and I have at least one cup in the afternoon, nearly every day. At my local grocery store I pay over $4.50 a box, but purchasing it on amazon with subscribe and save I get it for $2.45 a box. That’s big savings!
Larabar Gluten Free Fruit & Nut Food Bar, Peanut Butter Chocolate Chip
I usually have one variation of Larabar bars on our monthly order because they make for great snacks on the go. This month it was Peanut Butter Chocolate Chip, because I could get them for $.90 a piece, which is a smokin’ deal.
Personal care products are a great deal on amazon – remember it’s not just for grocery. This kids shampoo has been one we’ve been including – for just $4.75 for an 8 ounce size it fits our budget. A small dab will do ya! My son loves it too – which makes hair washing in the bath tub much easier. It has no petrolatum, sodium lauryl, sulfates, parabens or phthalates – perfect!
Pamela’s Products Gluten Free Baking & Pancake Mix – 25 lbs.
This tasty gluten free baking mix makes it in our order about 3 times a year. My husband loves making pancakes on the weekends for our family – and we eat gluten free. This baking mix is so versatile and at this price it is very economical. I make banana muffins with it, cheese biscuits for our dinner and of course pancakes and waffles – even cookies. We store in in an air tight container and we are set for a few months.
This is the vitamin my five year old takes daily. I will say he is a bit particular on his vitamins and what he will eat. These are gummy vitamins and are fitting our need right now. I didn’t want a vitamin full of things his body didn’t need, plus one that he would eat with out a big fight. I love that you can also get $6 off your first subscription to this – so try it the first time and get a great deal!
So there you have it….. my amazon favorite’s right now. I also love the convenience of my Kindle books – so many are offered FREE too! Plus ordering gifts for others – just find the item and if it says PRIME – you are set to ship it to anyone for FREE too.
Saves me time, money and my sanity!
