Yeppers, I will be participating in Amazon Prime Days, and I am so excited to save on some items that I’ve had my eye on for awhile.
This year it’s on July 12 & 13th, and I have learned some simple savings tips, and here’s 5 below!

Make sure to set up notifications on any deals you are interested in on Prime Day. Here’s a little video on how to do this here: Amazon Notifications
Make a Prime Day List
Make a list of what you’re looking for, for instance here’s mine: Prime Day Super Saves!
Super Savings Tip: I like to make sure that I’m getting a good deal. So, I use a price comparison search extension like : camelcamelcamel.com.
When it comes to Lighting Deals, setting notifications on items ahead of time, comes in handy. You will be notified when your selective deals have gone live.
Prime Credit Card
If you happen to get a Prime credit card, there is special card only deals for using your Prime charge card.
There’s so many ways to save, and I hope you go to the Prime Day Hub, and see all the extra offerings that are available now!
THE DOLLAR TREE HAS IT GOING ON!
I don’t know about you, but I am so happy that the fall season is almost here.
It’s been hot as hades here in East Tennessee, and it’s time for some, as they say here in the south, “Fall Y’all”!
So here’s some super fall time decor ideas below:
Change Your Pillows Seasonally
I love this retro pillow design above, but check out these
What a super way to save for the holiday seasons!
I’ve seen these decorator pillows go for a mint, and it just makes savings cents to buy a plain starter set and change the holiday designs out seasonally.
Harvest Time Decor
My favorite part of Fall decorating is seeing what my neighbors come up with each year.
Scarecrows, hay bales, and corn stalks are usually the way most of us start building our Harvest decor themes.
Super Saving Tip: Home Depot & Lowes will have a huge semi truck out front, full of hay bales for around $4 – $8 bucks.
For instance, I sprayed a corn stalk with some burgundy paint, added a scare crow and ribbons from the Dollar Tree a few years ago. Cheap and cute….
Gosh that picture was a long, long, time ago. Below is a wreath from the Value Seekers Blog on The Dollar Tree!
Places like Wal-Mart, and your local home improvement stores have really stepped it up when it comes to decorating for the fall season.
Fake pumpkins, gourds, and don’t even get me started on the the velvet decor that’s hot this year.
Velvet Me Please
Ok….I like a little bling, but add in some velvet & lights and it’s mine! I love the velvet pumpkins this year!
Trust me….this is a deal, because these velvety pumpkins can run you $40, without all the extras!
These beauties are available at Amazon, with Prime shipping, but there almost gone, so other people must love velvet too! 🙂
Finally…if your not into decorating, and would rather just add a lighted wreath, well I’m into that too! LOL
Just add these three things together above, and you have a designer wreath with timed lights for around $62. Bam…your done. 🙂
I hope that some of these ideas inspire you to enjoy all that the Fall season has to offer.
Carving pumpkins, candle making, making cider, and spending time with your family & friends around a fire is really what the fall season is all about.
SO…….HAPPY FALL YA’LL!

OMGosh, since turning 50 this past year, I’ve realized that my holiday gift list has really changed from the past years. My kids, parents, and siblings are all getting older, and here’s what my gift list looks like today.
For My Family & Friends
My #1 gift for my family & friends, drum roll please! Gift Cards!
That’s right, other than a few gag gifts, candles, and fragrance sets, I don’t have a clue what everyone wants, and a gift card takes a lot of pressure off of me to try and figure out what everyone wants. (Trust me, they like gift cards). 🙂
Now Lets Move On To Me!
My mom head out in the wee hours of the morning, and we’ve come to the conclusion that on Black Friday we tend to really buy for ourselves. It’s almost as if we buy the things we’ve been wanting all year, at drop bottom prices, and get what we really want under the tree.
So, here’s what I’m searching for this season:
I knew that when my mom and I bought this Amazon Fire HD tablet for my hubby last year, that I was going to be jealous! It’s just the right size, it’s fast, and the HD graphics are crystal clear. He absolutely loves it, because he watch movies, reads his western books, and talk to Alexa, which is irritating to me. 🙂
Right now for Black Friday, they are running drop bottom prices on all of their tablets, including the New HD 10 Kids Edition, so if your in the market for one, now is the time to buy!
New Balance Athletic Shoes
I’m 50 peeps, and I need some relief for my feet. Every year my mom and I both take advantage of the Black Friday sales on athletic shoes, and this year I’m going online to Joes New Balance Outlet. Since I already know what size and width I need, I am going to take advantage of the deep discounts they are offering. Here’s my last pair, and if you decide to
Bon Voyage! Luggage
I recently went on my first Carnival cruise, and it was a sad sight watching my hubby huff and puff from carrying our old suit case up that plank. LOL
So, this American Tourister 3pc luggage set, is defiantly on my list, for $55 on Amazon.
Super Saving Travel Tip: I booked my cruise through Ebates , and received 10% back on my trip. I figure if I’m going to shop online, I might as well rack in the money. If you follow my link below, you will receive $10 just for joining this FREE cash back service!
I already own one, but it’s a surprise for some a family member….shhhh. I have had my Apple watch for several years, and it’s been awesome to see my steps, text messages, and weather alerts. This guy is on Amazon for $299
Isn’t this a super list? 🙂 Although, I am seriously thinking about booking another cruise. The earlier I book the better the savings. Thank you for stopping by, and I want to wish all of you a very Merry Holiday season. Cheers.
Yeppers, I have out done myself over the past two years and had two surgeries, steroid injections, and plenty of physical therapy. In the mix of all that, I like to have a clean home, and the following super cleaning products have helped me along the way.

First up is the Dyson cordless Vacuum. I love that I don’t have to unwrap a long, heavy, chord, which I hate to do, and it weighs about five pounds. It has attachments that allow me to go from bare floor to carpet, and becomes a handheld when I need to clean out my car. I wasn’t quite sure if it would have the suction power of a traditional vacuum, but this little guy has some vroom. It”s perfect for everyday day hubby, kids, and puppies the messes that they leave behind.
I knew that I needed to do some deep cleaning in my home, and we have white doors that love to collect hand prints and dust. So, my mom gave me her SteamFast 3 in 1 mop to try, and holy moly I became a steam cleaning machine. LOL It’s funny how much gunk is just sticking around on your cabinets and doors without you really knowing it. I love how quick it is and the extension keeps you from bending down all the time.
I didn’t even know that their was such a thing as a spinning mop until my mom bought me one! LOL See she’s the cleaning queen of the family, and once I figured out out this product worked, I could see why she loved it so much.
If you have a weak back or maybe hands and knees full of arthritis, this mopping system makes it a whole lot easier by wringing that water out for you. The mop head itself sucks up just about anything very quickly, and it makes mopping your floors a whole lot faster and cleaner.
I am turning the big 50 this year, and I have to admit that my body is changing, and I really do appreciate finding ways to keep my home clean.
These cleaning products have really helped me over the past year, and if you have some suggestions, leave a comment below and let me know.
