December Prime Purchases

AND, here we are, the first Tuesday of 2021.  How did that happen?  I would have to say that since Covid entered our lives last March that Amazon's sales have skyrocketed.  I mean, most of my peeps are staying closer to home and further away from crowds, so that makes Amazon an even bigger temptation.  I mean, we gals have got to have our "retail therapy" during times such as this.  So, here's some of my "finds" for December.

I cannot tell you the last time I ate a Seseme Stick but I have always liked them.  These popped up while I was searching for something else and I ordered a bag.  They are wonderful!  I love crunchy snacks and I think I remember someone saying that they are good for you as well.  It's a win, win as far as I'm concerned.  One thing to remember, they are fairly calorie laden, so you have to use self control so as not to overdo it. ~smile~


What will they think of next?  I've never heard of this apparatus until a few months ago when someone told my Daddy that it would help him with his dry mouth.  I can't attest to the snoring part but Daddy said it helps him so much with his dry mouth at night.  He's already worn one out.  This will be his second one.  Perhaps you or someone you know needs this, either for dry mouth or the ever bothersome snoring.


I use to own some of these many years ago and had no idea if they were even made anymore.  Well, much to my surprise, they are!  These are so nice to have on hand when you need a turtleneck under a sweater but you don't need anything but the turtleneck part.  And, I love that this has the slouchy turtleneck look.


If you need a BIG glass bowl that is microwave safe then look no further.  It is a 6 quart capacity and is 11 1/4 inches in diameter.  I have plastic bowls this size but didn't have a glass one and on occasion I need one.  



I've bought a couple of these type hot air brush dryer but this one is the best in my estimation.  It grabs the hair great and it has 3 different size brushes.  I think I'm going to enjoy it more for use between shampoos but not to use on wet/damp hair. The jury is still out on that.


I've been seeing these lately and the temptation finally got the best of me and I ordered myself one.  I have used foundation brushes before but just did not care for them but this one is totally different from any I've ever used.  I've used the kind that had a long handle and long bristles.  This one covers a much larger area and the bristles are very short and smooth.  It truly puts a flawless finish on your face.  


Surely I'm not the only person that often needs brushes to clean an item and I often do NOT have the right size.  Well, NO more!  I'm pretty sure this set will fit any need that I have.  And, I think they would make a great gift as well.  I mean, I'm at a stage of life that I pretty much have all the "stuff" I need so a "needed item" is always welcome.  Just sayin'...........


Okay, let me confess right up front, I have a "love affair" with pens.  It's crazy but I love pens and if a new type comes out, I have to give it a try.  And, I'm a big fan of Pilot pens, so I figured I would like these as well.  The best part of this pen is there are different points available and these are erasable, retractable and refillable.  I mean, how much better can it get???  And, the eraser works amazing, no more white out mess for me. 


These are such nice, nice pillow covers.  They are 20x20 and made of a heavy canvas/linen type fabric for outdoor use.  I love buffalo plaid and I put these out on the benches on our front porch when I took off the Christmas pillows last week.  I ordered the 20x20 inserts and it was simple to stuff the inserts into the covers.  These come in several colors and you can also find the solid colors on Amazon as well.  

And, there you have it, my Prime finds for last month.  And, we welcomed 2021 with blackeyed peas, cabbage and pork chops.  Hopefully 2021 is going to be nicer to us than 2020!

  1. Okay....have not heard about this snore strap thing but I wake up so often due to dry mouth. Not sexy..but sleep is important haha. And I have those outdoor pillow covers in navy and have been so impressed with how well they have held up in the elements.

  2. Who knew fun it is to read someone elses Amazon list?? You sent me down the rabbit hole looking at the dickies! Lol! Oh and I also love pens :)

  3. As usual, I am adding almost all of your items to my shopping ideas list. I'm especially interested in the pillow covers. Our outdoor seating could use an update. Thanks for linking up with Prime Purchases! Tanya - The Other Side of the Road

  4. My Mister eats those sesame sticks by the pound. He could use that chinstrap, that's for darn sure! Happy New Year, Lea!

  5. I love me a big old mixing bowl for sure. Oh girl, I love most anything with a crunch! I think sometimes that is the only reason I eat certain things is so I can get that crunch in. LOL! Great prime purchases. Happy New Year. Hugs and blessings, Cindy

  6. I always love your picks and purchases and go to check out several things each time. Thanks for doing these fun posts, Lea!

  7. I have those buffalo plaid pillow covers and just love them, they’re on my black rockers on the front porch. Yum, I think I would love sesame sticks. And I too have a love affair with pens! Happy New Year friend!

  10. Got a kick out of your love affair with pens. My poor 93 year old mama cannot keep track of her pens. I am forever sending her pens from Amazon. But sometimes the ones I send are old and dried out and don't work for long or at all. Need to give these a try.
    Thankful that neither of us snores much over here. I do puff!! Kind of like I am pouting with a puff of air coming out. Drives my Prince C. crazy. Wonder if this contraption would help with that?

  11. Oh dear...something happened and my comment flew into cyberspace, so I'm trying again. Hope it doesn't end up coming through twice!!!! I went to Amazon and put almost everything here on my Wishlist!!! My retail "home shopping" therapy has kicked into overdrive recently! Shopping online wwwwaaaayyyy too much...but a girl's gotta have something to do!!!! I'm watching too many youtube videos that show all these awesome things that I "need"!!!!! Happy New Year!

  12. Great finds Lea. I ordered some buffalo check pillow covers for fall. Great prices. I wonder if the chin straps works...LOL Happy Friday.
