The Last 5 Things I Bought on Amazon (Non-Video Post)

Hey there! Yesterday was a pretty crazy day that ended up with a visit to Urgent Care, but all is well and I’ll have that story to tell tomorrow.

Today I thought it might be interesting to share the last five things I bought on Amazon. Like most people I am a Prime member, and I love online shopping especially when packages arrive in 2 days or less!

Here’s what I’ve picked up from Amazon recently…

1. 3-Tier Flower Pot Stand 

I bought a different flower pot stand a few weeks ago that’s a bit taller and I LOVE it. I recently decided I wanted another one but a bit shorter which is how I ended up ordering this one.

If you’ve been reading here for the last couple of months you know I’m obsessed with my garden, and I’m very excited to be developing a green thumb. I can’t wait to go buy new flowers for the stand when it arrives!

This stand is going in a spot that’s mostly in the shade, so it will be fun to pick out flowers that enjoy shade.

2. Micro-USB Cables with XL Cords 

I have a Mophie charging case on my iPhone which charges via micro-usb. I don’t often have to plug my phone in since I do use a Mophie, but sometimes when it’s late at night the battery will get low and I’ll need a cord.

The normal length of phone charging cord is short, so I finally ordered 10 feet long ones! Three for only $10, that’s a steal. I now have one long charging cord in the bedroom, one in my car and one in my purse.

3. Bamboo and Silicone Cooking Utensils 

Previously I had a set of all bamboo cooking utensils, but I read somewhere that bacteria can get into the wood and live in there after a while. I decided right then and there to order cooking utensils with silicone ends.

I like the look of wooden cooking utensils so I made sure the handles were still bamboo. I think they’re cute!

4. Toilet Paper and Paper Towels 

I like buying toilet paper and paper towels in bulk on Amazon. I’ve been doing it for a while because it allows me to get my favorite brands for a little less than I would pay for them in-store.

In case you’re wondering we like Cottonelle TP and Viva “Choose a Sheet” paper towels. I would honestly not use a different type of paper towel, I love the Viva brand. The consistency of the paper is different than other brands and you can wipe up a lot without using a lot.

5. Cecil’s Food 

I order Cecil’s food in bulk through Amazon “Subscribe and Save” which is so convenient. He’s a picky eater and only likes chicken pate, so ordering it in bulk works for him.

Every once in a while I’ll go to the pet store and get him a variety of cans of different food and open them all at once so he can pick what he wants, but he always goes for his beloved chicken pate. He’s a creature of habit which I totally get because I often eat the same foods over and over too. Like mother, like son …or something :).

Kate Spade “K” Necklace 

A couple people have asked about the necklace I’ve been wearing recently, and it was a fairly new purchase from Amazon too. It’s the Kate Spade “K” necklace.

It comes on an 18″ necklace which is shorter than I like, so I actually took the pendant off and paired it with a gold leaf pendant on a 22″ necklace chain. I really like the layered look of the two together and I was happy to get the “K” pendant with free shipping from Amazon!

Of course the necklace comes with pendants in all letters of the alphabet so you can pick one up with the letter of your choosing.

Over the years I’ve actually purchased so many things on Amazon from jewelry to perfume to shoes and backpacks and makeup and notebooks … what would we do without it?

    I freaking love Amazon! And I love your necklace! We have now crossed over into the toiletries/pantry type stuff on Amazon, so to me, the weirdest thing we have bought is cereal! Haha! But soon that won’t seem weird anymore. Amazon Prime is going to help me reach my ultimate goal of never leaving the house again. 🙂 The last thing I bought was a black purse that you sent me the link to. If it comes and I really like it, I will get brown too 🙂

    I love Viva papertowels!! They feel so comfy and nice. Roger hates how they feel, but I just bought an 8 pack, he has to deal with it.

    I really like the Buzzfeed post on things that one can buy from amazon, if I had prime I would buy so many things from there!!!
