It’s A Big Deal: My Top Picks for Amazon Prime Day

Rescheduled from its typical July timeframe, Amazon Prime Day is the new Black Friday in October!

And to make the shopping even sweeter, Walmart, Target and other major retailers are joining the fun. Here’s a running list of some fab deals I’ve spotted.

If you see something that you think others might want to know about it, please email me at or shoot me a note via Facebook.

I’m also keeping a running list HERE in Amazon as I’m finding deals I like.

Aura Digital Photo Frame: $160 (20% off at Amazon)
Ever since Oprah put the Aura digital frame on her favorite things list, it was on my most-wanted list. And for good reason, it’s a fucking awesome digital frame. Pricey, yes…but totally worth it. People compliment the display quality all the time and the app is so simple to use. (I have the white one.)

Pioneer Woman Instant Pot: $49 (50% off at Walmart!)
Doesn’t this remind you of the old-school crockpots that our moms and grandmothers pulled out for parties and pot roasts?

Colgate Hum Electric Toothbrush with travel case and tracking app: $60 (30% discount for Amazon Prime members)
Proper brushing is a constant struggle in our house. With this Colgate Hum toothbrush, I’ll have receipts! The app tracks brushing time, areas, etc.

23andMe Genetic Test: $99 (50% off at Amazon)
These at-home genetic tests are all the rage…and now 50% off!

Ancestry DNA Kit: $49 (51% off at Amazon)
I have no idea what the difference is between this and the 23andMe one, aside from this one being half the price. My best guess is that this one is focused more on your family tree, and the other on health-related topics?!

Two-piece Samsonite Hard-Sided Luggage Set: $99 (57% off at Amazon)
Only $100 for a two-piece set of hard-sided Samsonite luggage?! You can’t go wrong. Technically, you can’t really go anywhere right now, but that’ll change soon (I hope!).

Rubbermaid Brilliance Food Storage Containers 24-Piece Set: $28 (30% off at Amazon!)
I have this exact set and will be buying at least another, maybe two. It’s totally weird to get geeked out by storage containers, but these are the best – especially since they stay clear, even after holding spaghetti sauce!

Shark Rocket Stick Vac – $119 (50% off at Walmart!)
Not the most glamorous of purchases, stick vacuums make up in convenience for what they lack in sex appeal. We have a similar Shark stick vac for quick cleanups. It’s actually my preferred vacuum in our house.

Matted Gallery Frames for 8×10 Photos/Art: $13 (30% off at Walmart!)
Who doesn’t love a gallery wall?! With these timelessly classic, yet inexpensive, matted frames, you’ll be hanging everything from family photos to kids art in no time! (I particularly like to frame old calendar pages.)
