It's here! The long awaited, once a year, multi-day shopping event on the giant shopping site Amazon: Prime Day! From today at 3pm EST through Wednesday (the 18th) at 3pm EST, you can peruse Amazon for some of the best deals you'll see anywhere, all year. So of course that means this is the time to do a little forward thinking, (and quickly, since time is of the essence!).
- Are there are any big-ticket items you've been waiting to buy (pricey appliances, expensive pieces of furniture)?
- Are you mentally prepared to do a little holiday shopping in July, months before you really have to (yes, we know, the temptation of procrastinating up until the week before the holidays is perhaps your MO) in order to save yourself some money (and a headache later)?
Since a lot of the Prime Day deals are quite significantly discounted, buying a mattress at 40% of, for instance, will most likely end up saving a few hundred dollars—why buying these big ticket items during Prime Day will definitely be worth your while! As far as holiday shopping, we know it's a bit of a stretch this far out, but believe us—come December you'll thank us.
After checking out all the kitchen and home deals across Amazon, we've chosen some of the our favorite items. And not just investment pieces that you'll save majorly on, but some great basics that will fill out gaps you might have at home. Enjoy, and go forth and shop!
