Popular Amazon Items We Have/Buy For Our Home

  • Most Ring Doorbell models are on major sale. We can’t say enough good things about ours! We have an older model (Ring Video 2) but most of their models get incredible reviews!
  • One item I buy almost monthly is my favorite laundry wash detergent. It has an amazing smell and a little bit goes a long way!
  • We are still so happy with our iRobot Roomba robot vacuum – it’s a life saver! So I had to let you know that Amazon is having a major savings on iRobot RoombasEufy VacuumsShark robotic and upright vacuums, and Bissell vacuums & floorcare.
  • Love, love my Elemis cleansing balm! It works so great removing all my makeup and it smells amazing. Always leaves my face feeling so smooth. Their moisturizer is fantastic too!
  • Winston still loves his slow feed bowl. Well, maybe I should rephrase that and say: ‘we’ still love the bowl. Winston probably would love all his food immediately but that sweet guy needs to slow it down! 🙂
  • Save up to 40% on select power tools from brands like BLACK+DECKER, BOSCH, DEWALT, and GEARWRENCH. This DEWALT miter saw is only $199 (down from $319)! Great gift for the men in your life. 🙂
  • Looking for a great air purifier? I love our Levoit – it works great and is so quiet! And this one is on sale for a great price!

Now let’s talk about all the other fantastic Black Friday sales happening right now!
