July Prime Purchases

And, here it is, the first Tuesday of August.  And, that can only mean one thing, it is time for Prime Purchases.  It's a favorite of mine to create and it seems to be a favorite of many of my readers.  I don't think you will be disappointed with this months.  Hopefully you will find something that appeals to you or someone you love.  Enjoy!


If you are in the market for a throw or need a gift for someone, this might meet your need.  These are the softest, silky throws I've ever felt.  They come in some great colors and are neatly rolled inside a nice silky bag.  I got these for gifts but, if I needed any more throws, I'd definitely get one.


I am a HUGE fan of HP printers! It's the only brand I've owned for years and years.  They are so easy to use, and do an awesome job.  I love the scan, fax and print capability and at some point I use all of them.  My last 2 printers have had that feature.  If you are in the market for a new printer, I highly recommend HP.  And, it's wireless! That makes the set up very easy.


A sweet friend gave me a Peace Lily a couple of weeks ago and I found this beautiful container to set it in.  It is the perfect fit and looks lovely in it.  This piece would be pretty without anything in it as the inside is just as pretty as the outside.  I was thrilled to find this.


I think I saw this on someone else's post but, I can't remember who it was.  It is the greatest shower towel for washing your back.  I've always used the back brushes for that but this is sooooo much better.  And, it has the exfoliating feature.  It lathers up nicely and could easily be used as your wash cloth.  I prefer a sponge so I only use it for my back.  It dries quickly and washes up nicely.  I just throw it in with our towels and then hang it to dry and do not put it in the dryer.  


I may have featured this is a past post but, if you missed that, you need to know about this.  It is the greatest appliance cleaner and it is good for your garbage disposal, your washing machine and your dishwasher.  It's so nice to have one cleaner do them all, and it's so easy to use.



In February of this year I stopped having my nails overlaid.  I had them overlaid for almost 30 years but I knew it wasn't healthy for my nails and the time had come to STOP!  Talk about painful! It took 4 months for my nails to grow completely out with all new nails.  Ugh! They were so ugly and I didn't like it at all.  But, this past month has been so much better.  They have grown to a nice length and are fairly healthy.  All this means that I now do my own nails. By doing my own nails, I mean filing them and I keep nail strengthener  on them along with a very pale pink color.  I LOVE these nail filing blocks so much better than a nail file.  They are easier to use for me and are the perfect grit for fingernails.  They come 12 to a pack for $9.00, enough to share with a few friends. And, they're in such pretty colors.


If you have any lower back issues, you would likely LOVE this inflatable pillow.  I have been using them for about 13 years in our vehicles.  It makes the biggest difference and I only have 2-3 puffs of air in mine.  I don't even understand how they work but they do!  It's as though your back just sort of floats. They show many other uses for them but I've always just used mine in the car and I also take it with me when we fly.  It folds in half very easily and will fit down in a carry on tote. 


I have been using hand wipes for many years, long before Covid.  I prefer the ones in this type of packaging rather than the round containers.  I keep a package of these in the console of our vehicles and I use them ALL the time.  These came 6 to a case and 60 to a package.  These are so easy to get out of the package and I love the way they snap shut. 



Again, as you know, I'm a big fan of popcorn.  I generally just buy the bags of pre-popped by Skinny Girl.  And, I take it up a notch by spraying this buttery goodness on it.  No joke, it is so good and has 0 calories.  If you like buttered popcorn but don't want the calories, then this is for you. 


Who doesn't need an eraser on a pen from time to time.  I love these and they are what I use on our calendar for our appointments, engagements and such.  I love my IPhone calendar but I still want a big grid calendar hanging that I can write on and look at to see whose got what in the week ahead.  And, I'm always having to change a date or a time and now I can do it without making a mess of my calendar.  These erasers work great and leave not a trace. 


I'm also a fan of Seseme Sticks and these are some of the best I've ever eaten.  They can be hard to find in stores but I found these on Amazon.  They taste great and have just the right amount of crunch. Amazon also has some with a hot and spicy flavor but, for me, they aren't near as good as these.  And, I'm a big fan of hot and spicy but these just didn't appeal to me.  


I got this to take on my trip to Israel in November.  I had several criteria I wanted a backpack to meet and this one met them all.  Plus, it's so good looking!  It not only can be a backpack but a shoulder or arm bag as well.  It has height enough for me to put my back vitalizer in when folded in half.  If you a need for a backpack, you definitely need to check this one out and it comes it several more cute, cute patterns. 


We will going to Oklahoma in September and while there, will be attending an Oklahoma State football game.  They require clear handbags/purses to get in to the stadium.  There are lots of styles on Amazon but this was a favorite of mine and very inexpensive.  It seems that more and more venues are now requiring these type bags.  I guess that is a definite sign of the times we are living in. ~sad~
