These are the 9 Things We’re Buying on Amazon Prime Day

Prime Day

Prime DayYour car, your budget and your passengers will thank you.

I’ve been an Amazon Prime devotee for years. At first I resisted because of the price, which has gone up to $139 a year from $89 when it was first introduced. But considering the ease of ordering, a near perfect record of on-time delivery, great prices and the ability to return almost anything for free, it’s the equivalent of having a warehouse at your doorstep, especially this year for Prime Day, which requires a Prime membership and runs from July 12-13. 

Once I acquiesced and joined the Prime revolution, I used my membership to furnish dorm rooms, gift distant family at holiday time and order necessities during the pandemic. This made me even more grateful for Amazon.

Amazon Prime is coming in pretty handy during this summer’s Prime Day, July 12-13. As we all know, prices are going up on everything, and with life returning to normal, it’s nice to be able to get the things you want and need without overpaying. That’s the beauty of Prime Day: Discounts on thousands of items that make July feel a bit like Christmas.  

You do have to be a Prime member to participate; if you’re not maybe this is the time to bite the bullet. Here are the 9 things I’ll be adding to my cart on Tuesday. 

Amazon Prime Day Car Cover

Car Cover

I can’t stand how dirty my car is these days, but with Western droughts and dry reservoirs, I also can’t stand to wash it. This is a good solution for those work at home days when I don’t need to go anywhere, or when I’m traveling; I can cover my car and keep it dirt free.

Amazon Prime Day Trunk Organizer

Foldable Trunk Storage Organizer

Dog toys for a jaunt the the park; sunscreen and a cap for a quick trip to the beach; reusable shopping bags; I love to leave things in the car for when I’ll need them, but invariably they end up in a tangled mess. An organizer not only keeps things neat and easy to reach, but it leaves the rest of the trunk open for groceries, luggage and other things.

Window Shades

If you’re not lucky enough to have window shades built into your rear passenger windows, these are a good option to keep the sun off your precious littles; they’ll be more comfortable and won’t have the sun in their eyes.

Chuck-It Ball Launcher 

I love this classic fetch toy for a dog. You can pick up a slobbery tennis ball and toss it across the yard or across the park and your dog, if he’ll fetch, can run for hours retrieving and returning the ball. And, then, leave it in your in car organizing bin for next time.

They had me at one hand fold. This easy to use 3 wheel stroller is lightweight, agile and has storage underneath. If it’s time to replace the stroller or move up to a true toddler model, this is a good option.

Convertible Child Car Seat

This seat is versatile in that it can accommodate children from 4 lbs. to 65 lbs., can be installed rear facing and then turned around to face the front when the child reaches the ideal weight (40 lbs.). Even though technically you can use these seats for infants, they are more popular for children aged 6 months to 6 years.

There are more deals, of course. This is also a good time to shop for tires, camping equipment and backpacks for back to school, and you’ll find lots of discounts on them all. 

Happy Prime Day!
