Lit Deals You Absolutely Want To Check Out On Prime Day 2018


Photo by: Nia Washington 

Ever since I was a little kid, I've always loved chasing a good sale! I get a buzz from finding amazing deals and making my money stretch. Growing up, I would scout out all the sales and come up with gameplans for my family whenever we went on family shopping trips to the designer outlet malls, Black Friday and back to school shopping. And my love for researching and planning for major sales hasn't gone away. In fact, now that I'm a relatively independent, young adult, my love for finding and maximizing the value of a great sale has tripled because I'm on that #budgetlifestyle. And now that I've basically sold my soul to Amazon, Amazon Prime Day (July 16, 2018) has become a major holiday for me. But guess what, I don't play around when it comes to these type of sales. So here's the DL on what I'm excited about this Prime Day.

But before we jump into breaking down the sale, I don't want you to go crazy on Prime Day. Just because it's on sale or a great value doesn't mean we should buy a ton of stuff we don't need. We still have to be financially responsible. So with that in mind, here are some practical things to focus on this July 16th-17th. Also, there are some pre-Amazon Prime Day deals that already launched in the US, so go check them out. And heads up, this post contains affiliate links. That means that Amazon gives me a small commission from each sale. They pay me, not you. So if you do decide to shop from below, thank you so much for supporting my passion project. Regardless of if shop through my site, I hope you find this post helpful, and thanks for taking the time to read my blog. Your support means the world to me.

Reasons To Shop On Prime Day 2018
  • Get your holiday shopping done early -  you can get your loved ones amazing gifts for a fraction of the price and not stress out about Christmas, anniversaries, birthdays, Mother's Day or Father's Day 
  • Invest in tech - I need to invest in some tech devices to take my content creation projects to the next level. If you're in the digital creative industry or just want to make your life a little easier, this could be a good time to invest 
  • Closet revamp - It's freaking hot and you may have outgrown or donated most of your clothing, so now you can get a few items for a fraction of the price 
  • Stock up on groceries and household basics - if you don't have a Cosco membership, this is for you! Wholefoods is participating in Prime Day this year. If you spend $10 at wholefoods between July 11th and 17th, you get $10 free in an Amazon voucher... THAT'S FREE MONEY!!
  • Also AmazonBasics - aka everything you need to run a smooth household - will be up to 20% off. 

What I'm Checking Out On Prime Day 
  • Lulus's - This is one of my favorite online stores and they've teamed up with Amazon Prime! You get 30% off AND free shipping this Prime Day on lulus.com when you use your Amazon Prime account and Amazon Pay 
  • Get you an Echo Dot for $25 (price should drop on the 16th I believe)!!! 
  • Bedding/Home Decor - I need to replace my ish asap. 

  • Outdoor Furniture - Because it's summer, I have a backyard, and right now it's ugly so I want to fix that.
