Amazoning in the New Year

Hello all. I love shopping small & local, but the convenience of Amazon wins out pretty often in my life. And I’ve finally stopped being lazy and registered for an affiliated link (woo!), so I will earn a penny or two for M’s piggy bank*.

*her piggy bank is actually a fox

Most of these items are Christmas gifts, but some after post-holiday purchases and some are things I ordered for myself. As I mentioned, I make a tiny profit from sales through these links 🖤

New Books for M

Olya shared a bunch of marked down books on her IG last week. So naturally I stocked up for trips, holidays, birthdays, and just-becauses.

Gifts for the Critters

We like to spoil our pets and other people’s pets during the holidays. The vegetable squeaky toys were a big hit with our neighbors’ 6 month old puppy!

Stuff for M

Both M’s big birthday gift and big Christmas gift came from Amazon. She got these awesome stepping stones for her b-day and this kitchen for Christmas. Both have provided hours of entertainment!

Stuff for Me

I decided to stop scrolling in bed and the easiest way to do that was to charge my phone across the room at night. But my phone was my alarm clock… so I needed a new one. I opted for this sunrise-simulating one. Way less $$ than a Hatch, but it’s actually been really nice.

The blue light glasses & cheetah flats were practical and beneficial purchases. The bag was purchased as a snack/toy travel bag for M. I actually keep it in my car right now, but it’s a great bag! Big, sturdy, tons of pockets!

We still have one more Christmas to go to, so I didn’t want to share ALL the things I’ve purchased. I’m linking up with Tanya for Prime Purchases.

What did you buy this month from Amazon? (Or Etsy! Or your local store!)

    The Monster at the End of this Book was one of my favorites growing up, and is one of my favorites to read to Zoe still. “I’m so embarrassed” on the last page cracks her up every time. Those flats are cute! Amazon definitely wins for convenience and timely deliveries.

      I remember seeing it on your page after Oyla posted it! I haven’t shown it to M yet but I think she’ll love it. Grover is relatively new to her- we’re still team Elmo & Abby. Lol
      I found these cheetah flats and some GREAT black flats on Amazon lately!


  2. Moving your phone across the room is a great idea – I bet I’d sleep better if I weren’t waking up to look at my clock several times a night!

      It has stopped me from mindlessly grabbing my phone and scrolling while waiting for sleep to wash over me. I like the new setup a lot, even if it’s a form of tough love. LOL

    I am no longer allowed to scroll at night either. I should move to an alarm clock.

      Ironically, the alarm clock was a middle-of-the-night purchase. Hahaha!
