October Prime Purchases

Well, guess I had a lot on my mind this morning as I completely forgot it was the first Monday of the month and that means Prime Monday.  So, sorry it wasn't posted earlier but I just now remembered.  Hope you enjoy!

It's PRIME time and I have quite a list to share with you today.  With Christmas just around the corner, maybe these will assist you with your gift giving.  You can thank me later. ~chuckle~


Okay, if you drink the nutrition shakes, milk shakes or ice cream sodas, then you need these in your life.  My Dad loves a root beer float almost every afternoon and he loves these straws.  If you have ever tried to suck something of a thick substance through a small straw then you know it's pretty much impossible. And, they are so colorful and happy looking and that always matters. ~laugh~


Our family has 3 birthdays the first week of October. We have them on the 2nd, 3rd and 7th.  One of the gifts I am giving to one of the grans is big and I decided to check and see if Amazon had any cute big birthday bags.  Well, of course, they did!  I ordered 3 , 1 to use now and 2 to keep on hand.  This is such a colorful bag and worked perfectly for the gift I have.


I still use a wall calendar and I like to write on it with an ink pen but I often need to erase something I've written on it.  These are the greatest and the eraser works like a charm.  You can't tell there was ever anything written in the space.  It sure beats the ugliness of "white out."  I do use my phone for many things but I had used a big wall calendar a long, long time before smart phones and just prefer sticking with it. 


Apparently satin blouses are all the rage.  I've seen them on so many ladies and I really like the look.  So, of course, I figured Amazon had some and I was right.  These are so, so pretty and come in an array of colors.  They refer to them as "satin" but they are really polyester and wash and dry like a dream.  I could not be happier with the two colors I ordered.


I get pedicures regularly but I absolutely do NOT allow that "cheese grater" thingy to be used on my feet.  Never in a million years!  Can you tell I feel strongly about those things? But, I do love to use a foot file a couple of times a week while I'm showering.  I am a fanatic about foot care and this is one of the best files I've ever owned.  Hey, it would make a great stocking stuffer.  Just sayin'..........


These are the cutest black and grayish camoflage joggers.  The fabric is silky smooth and soft and slip on a white top and you'll be "cute as a button."  You can't beat "cute and comfy" in my estimation.


I love lighted jack-o-lanterns!  I've had a really big one that I've put out on the front porch for many years but the poor thing had gotten so faded and old looking. I decided it was time to search for a new one.  Well, this is the exact one I had.  I was so excited that I decided to order 2 and put one on each side of the porch.  They are so cute and sometimes I walk outside after dark just to look at them glowing in the dark.  Sometimes it's the little things that make us smile.  If you need a really big lighted jack-o-lantern then here ya go!  They are not heavy and definitely need to be protected from extreme weather conditions.  Our front porch serves as just the right amount of protections for these fellas.


I know several folks on the journey of caregiving and this is such a great source of encouragement for those in that season.  I'm a big fan of this author and listen him on American Family Radio every week.  There are about 52 encouraging minutes in this book.  It's easy to just grab, read one of the entries and feel encouraged.  I keep one of these books on hand to give to someone who is on the "care giving journey." 


You know I love bling and this air pod case is definitely blingy.  But, I sure don't have to worry about losing it as it shines brightly wherever I place it.  It's very affordable and would definitely make a great stocking stuffer. ~just sayin'~


Okay folks, these are some of the finest sheets I've ever owned.  One of my sister in laws told me about them and I decided to order a set.  She said they were like sleeping on a cloud and she was right.  They are so soft and yummy.  They are not inexpensive but I'm betting they will last a long time.  Someone on your Christmas list might want/need a new set of sheets.


I love soft glowing candle light and these lanterns look so nice on a couple of our shelves.  They are battery operated and have a 4 hour timer (which I love).  They are a heavy plastic but no one would know that by looking at them.  They have a flickering glow which makes them look even prettier.


Our oldest granddaughter will be 14 the end of this week and she's getting this set of leggings as one of her gifts from us.  She loves printed leggings and I think these are so cute and hope she will too.  The sizes start at 3T and there are lots of designs to choose from.  She cannot wear leggings to school but she'll enjoy them for activities outside of school.


I love buffalo check!  I have looked for a "real red" buffalo check for a couple of years and finally found it this year.  These are a 20x20 pillow covers and I ordered the forms to go inside them.  I will use these on our front porch benches during the holidays.  I think I now have buffalo check pillows for each season of the year.  They come in several other colors as well.


I am a big fan of these structured silicone pans.  I have seen the silicone pans for years and years but they were so "floopy" that I just wasn't sure how that would work with batter and try to move them.  Well, it is NOT an issue with these for sure.  They have the structured edges and that makes the so easy to move to and from the oven.  And, baked goods just pop right out of them.  I made a batch of fudge the other day and dropped it by the spoonfuls into the pan and it worked like a charm.  And, I've also made brownies in them and they worked perfectly too.  I do spray mine with Pam but I'm not sure it's necessary.


 I'm pretty sure I've shared this little jewel in a previous post but it bears repeating.  If you have any sort of ache or pain this will likely assist in giving you relief.  And, the best part is that it is wireless and runs by an app on your phone and the "zappers" are rechargeable.  I used mine so much after my neck surgery, not immediately, but after about 6 weeks.  It was such a help with the spasms.  If I even have a twinge in my lower back, I pop this on and it takes care of it in about 30 minutes.  Most chiropractors use these and that is who introduced me to them years and years ago.  My first one was a battery operated, wired version and while it worked great, this is so much easier to use with lots more options.  

Okay, that's it for this edition.  Now, go shopping and add a few of these items to your cart. You'll thank me later. ~smile~
