Not sure I truly realized the value and glory of all things Amazon until I had my son…less than two months before Christmas with ZERO shopping done. Queue AMAZON PRIME!
My obsession with Amazon has not waned over the years, either – especially when free time is at a minimum and a trip to Target seems like a vacation. A few amazing finds on that site recently include:
Tuxedo Teeth Whitening Activated Charcoal Powder :: I wish I had taken a before photo, because the after has been incredible. I use this in the shower each morning, then brush my teeth normally once I get out. I’m still in awe that this actually worked!
Panda Planner :: No joke, I read about this on an article dedicated to Amazon cult favorites. I was in the midst of too many work projects — all with the same level of “priority” — and was having difficulty focusing. No focus, no progress. Enter, the Panda Planner. This has really helped me focus on what needs to be done that day, and what I can do without. It also helps me recognize the things I feel good or excited about in my life, which is something I take for granted too often.
Glass Foaming Soap Dispensers :: Okay, I’ll admit that in the midst of my “OMG I NEED A NEW DISPENSER B/C THESE PLASTIC METHOD CONTAINERS AREN’T DOING IT ANYMORE,” I didn’t realize that one was clear and one was blue. I had spaces in my house where that worked, so not a full blown crisis, but I was surprised. But hey, it’s better than when I wasn’t paying attention and bought my husband child size t-shirts…and opened the package…and washed them…and still didn’t notice, even when he tried to put it on. Yeah…
Cell Phone Stand :: Like everyone else on Earth, I struggle to ignore my phone while at work. I have a computer (sometimes two) and at least two screens in front of me at all times — WHY CAN’T I PUT THE PHONE DOWN?! I realized it was because I was always worried I would miss something. Did my son’s preschool call? Did I get a text reminder of a doctor appointment I would have otherwise forgotten about? What is Rue La La selling today?!?!?! And yes, I have an Apple Watch, so I really have no excuse for checking my phone. This stand helped me keep an eye on my phone without holding it in my hand should an issue arise, with a handy dandy cord slot so you can still charge. Plus, it gets my phone off the desk — and we all know how many germs end up on those. Oh, and it’s $10. Genius.
