Amazon Favorites

Linking up with Tanya to share some of our recent Amazon purchases. If I am being honest, our usage of Prime is a lot less frequent than it used to be. I am combing June and July in this post. There are a lot of school supplies for Zoe in this.

Molly Suds Laundry Detergent

I have been using fragrance free laundry detergent for years because of Chris’s sensitivities. Over the last year, I have really been cleaning up the products we use. Trying to eliminate endocrine disrupters, bad ingredients, things that alter our hormones, etc. This is one of the best laundry detergents you can get. The powder lasts for 120 loads, so it is actually more cost effective than many things you can purchase at Target/Walmart etc. Plus, if you have a fancy laundry room, you can drop the powder in a pretty container.

If you like a clean scent to your detergent, they make a peppermint one that is fab.

Protein Powder

You guys, have you ever actually read the ingredients on protein powders from Target, Walmart, Publix? They are all garbage. Not a single one of them sold in stores was without nasty ingredients that do us more harm than good. I have been trying out a few cleaner options and have really liked this one. It is much more affordable than the other two I tried and liked…so it is in my regular rotation. I mix this with various different fruits for a delicious protein packed treat to hit my macros.

Hemp Hearts

Hemp Hearts are an amazing way to get some added protein and omegas into yogurt, smoothie bowls, oatmeal, salads, etc. If you have never tried them, they have a light nutty flavor. Delicious!

Memory Making Mom

Memory-Making Mom: Building Traditions That Breathe Life Into Your Home

Major sale alert!!! This book is under $5 as I am writing this post up!!!

This book is full of ideas and encouragement for moms who want to make the best memories with their kids. It isn’t always about doing everything, but choosing what is special and important to your family, and building traditions on that. I sat with a notebook when I read chapters from this, taking notes on how I want my family to look, ideas for different holidays and traditions, key lines of inspiration and thoughts from the author. One of my favorite lines was: “You never know what traditions your children will treasure the rest of their lives.” I know I have certain memories from my childhood that I hold onto and try to recreate for my daughter. I hope that she has the same. This is written by a Christian author, but you do not have to be Christian to take away good points from the book.

Stove Guard

We got a new stove awhile ago, and it didn’t sit in our counters quite like the old one. Enter these! They make it look seamless and works great to block things from building up between the stove and counter.

Glass Top Wand

Grabbed these to clean said new stove.

Shower Gel

Restocked our favorite shower gel. I also like the lavender scent. This brand uses essential oils to scent their products, no nasty hormone disrupters.

Floatie

We grabbed this for Zoe before we went to the beach this summer. She outgrew her old one weight-wise and this was perfect for her. She said it was comfortable and it allowed her to move her arms more than the other style we used to have.

Unicorn Ice Packs

Zoe chose these ice packs for her lunchbox. They had some other really cute designs like pineapples, mermaids, fairies, space shapes and dinosaurs too! These are a great size and I would use them in my lunchbox as well, if I was still going to the office.

Bentgo

Zoe chose this Bentgo box. Again, there were plenty of cute designs for any taste. I am hoping to get creative with her lunches this year. Send me all your recommendations or accounts you follow on Instagram for inspiration!

Nap Mat

Zoe had the same napmat all through daycare. It lasted 5 years. The velcro no longer held, and it was getting really lumpy. It was washed once a week for 5 years, so its understandable! We decided to get a new one for Kindergarten so she can actually carry it without it falling open. Her school will nap until December and drop naps when they come back from Christmas break. She is excited about the “big girl” design of this one…compared to the fairytale one she used to have.

Ticonderoga No.2 Pencils

Zoe’s school supply list was very specific with brands. Crayola crayons, markers and colored pencils, pink pearl erasers, and these pencils. I wanted Zoe to have some fun colors, so I thought this pack was perfect! I somehow ended up with 2 packs of 20 instead of 10, I am not mad about it.

Primary Composition Notebook

Required, but make it cute. The theme of our school shopping.

We needed a few of these, so we got a pack of fun colored ones too!

Dry Erase Markers

The teachers requested this specific color and brand in a 4-pack. Of course, none of the stores had black four packs. Probably because everyone around here needed the same thing!

    Great finds this month! I love the unicorn ice packs, and the book sounds wonderful. Have you heard of Sally Clarkson – I loved her books Life Giving Parent, Home, and Table. (3 different books) Thanks for linking up with Prime Purchases.

      I haven’t heard of those books, but my library has Life Giving Home so I am going to check it out and look into the others as well! Thanks!

    The unicorn ice packs are so cute!! And so are the colorful Ticonderoga pencils – Sheffield just has the boring ones. His school is also super picky on the brands of stuff, but I like it – someone telling me EXACTLY what to buy is always a plus!

    I got a lot of the school supplies on Target this year. I love the bento box. And we also got the EO body wash too. And I think my husband would be happy if I used Amazon less. Ha.

    Checking out the protein! I told Scott about it and he’s all like, ‘you don’t need something that fancy, you just need protein’ and I’m like, ‘hormone disrupters’ and he just rolled his eyes lol. But seriously, I need to start adding protein to my smoothies again. It’s been awhile.

    I packed Wells’ lunch exactly one day before I gave up. He ate school lunch all of last year and he loved it.
    And I used to buy those same neon Ticonderogas for my students on the first day of school. So much easier if they already have a sharpened pencil to use.

    You always find the most brilliant things! I love Zoe’s Bento box, a girl after my own heart and I am so excited for her first week in school! Keep us posted in stories! And I hope you had so much fun in Gatlinburg!
