  • Reading this may satisfy all of your retail therapy needs!

Ok. Consider yourself warned. Now, I’m a weird combination of lazy, perfectionistic, and resourceful which keeps me on the constant hunt for things that solve life’s little problems or make life easier. Here, I throw my gift guide into the pile. I hope you find something to get that person that’s always hard to buy for, and I hope you find something to ask for on your Christmas or birthday list! I need to mention that none of the below are affiliate links. This list is my gift to you. The only kickback I want is your comment below! Don’t you just love spending other people’s money?!

My 10 Favorite Things (well, 11) from Amazon

My 11 Amazon Favorites

I was searching for an old Amazon order recently and noticed that ALL of our Amazon orders since 2004 are still in the system. Looking back on those orders was like opening a time capsule into the last 13 years of our lives. In 2004, I ordered a mesh crib bumper pad. Ugly but safe.

That was the baby phase. In 2005, I ordered The Kite Runner for one of our very first book club meetings, still one of my favorite selections all these years later. In 2006, a sit and stand tandem stroller. The girls are on the move. In 2009, a book about how to train dogs. Enter Flossie.

2012 was the year of the house remodel. Light fixtures and door hardware. Boring but beautiful. There were optical illusion books and swim goggles, ankle braces and cat doors. In all, we have placed 788 Amazon orders. And that includes the pre-prime years when I used to wait until my cart had 27 or so items before I pulled the trigger to save on shipping. I refuse to calculate a dollar total. I’m sure I’d pass right out. I love life-hacks and am always excited when someone shares a great find with me, so I thought you might like to see what my top Amazon purchases list looks like.
