During the last few months, my main source of shopping has, of course, been Amazon. I thought a great first post would be my top ten Amazon favorites.
Side note: I track all of my spending through an Excel sheet I designed (in a future post I will share it with everyone). I was updating the sheet when my daughter looked over my shoulder and read: "Amazon, Amazon, Amazon..." What can I say, single-mamma's know the value of not walking into a store, COVID or not.
I'll show you mine if you tell me yours! ;)
#10) Tree Hut Lemon Blueberry Tart Shea Sugar scrub, 18oz, Ultra Hydrating & Exfoliating Scrub for Nourishing Essential Body Care
This is on automatic delivery. There are many scents, but this one is great in the morning. DO NOT use this on your face, neck, or chest. Legs, arms, and hands are my target areas. Physical exfoliators like this should never be used anywhere else :)
#9) Univivi Garment Bags Hanging Suit Bags (4 Pack 54 inch) with Clear Window,Washable with Study Full Zipper for Closet Storage and Travel
These are great for winter coats. I have been organizing all of my clothes and trying to take better care of what I have in the name of sustainability. These look chic in any closet and have a great panel to see what you are storing.
#8) Vailge 100% Waterproof Dog Car Seat Covers, Dog Seat Cover with Side Flaps, Pet Seat Cover for Back Seat - Black, Hammock Convertible
For all the animal parents out there, this is key. It protects your seats and you can belt your dog in in too. Another great perk is zipping down about a 1/3 of the area, which lets your child sit there too.
#7) Sole Sticker The Crystal Clear Protector for Christian Louboutin Heels, Jimmy Choo, Ladies Heels
If you have "fancy" shoes, protect them! This gives you traction while protecting the coveted bottom of your shoes. It's okay to invest in nice things, but protect them. When we respect our belongings they last longer and provide us more joy, and not less money!
#6) DHC Deep Cleansing Oil (M), 4.1 fl. oz.
My nighttime routine is sacred to me. I wear make-up for up to 12 or 13 hours a day (sometimes more). I do a triple cleanse to remove my make-up. I first start with BioDerma on a cotton round, then I turn to the Deep Cleansing Oil as my second step. This gets every bit of mascara off in a gentle manner. I then finish cleansing with a gentle cleanser.
#5) Nippies Skin Ultimate Adhesive Nipplecovers Pasties & Travel Case - Creme
These stick-on no matter what, I mean it! I had my first pair for SIX months and wore them almost every day (bras bother my shoulders...long story).
#4) CeraVe Moisturizing Cream for Normal to Dry Skin | 19 Ounce | Fragrance Free
In Minnesota, there is a saying, "dress in layers". Well, this is my first layer. I love this stuff. I slather it on winter, spring, summer, or fall!
#3) CeraVe Night Cream for Face | 1.7 Ounce | Skin Renewing Night Cream with Hyaluronic Acid & Niacinamid
Apparently, I've bought this night cream four times so far. I now have it on automatic delivery. Love it! No, I'm not sponsored by CeraVe, their products are just that good!
#2) Atomic Habits: An Easy & Proven Way to Build Good Habits & Break Bad Ones
I had to add one book. Read this one. It is really good.
#1) Evercare Pet Mega Cleaning Floor Roller
Broom. Size. Lint. Roller. Need I say more? Dog hair, crumbs, don't want to vacuum? Use this!
