My Favorite Things to Buy on Amazon & Prime Now

If you're like me, you're an Amazon junkie. Josh and I buy so much on Amazon, and we have Amazon Prime Now here in San Francisco (which means we get things in under 2 hours). We get so much delivered through Amazon and it makes my life so much easier — things I would normally get at the store or via a Costco run are available right way on Amazon (this is not sponsored, I just really love Amazon!).

Here are our most-purchased Amazon items:

1. Candles.

I hardly ever buy candles in stores anymore, because I know I can get them on Amazon for cheaper than I would in a store and they always have exactly what I want! My favorites right now are these Votivo candles in Clean Crisp White. Such a dreamy summer scent!

2. Amazon Echo Dot.

Obviously we aren't buying these every week (we only have one in our apartment), but I stand by the fact that our Amazon Echo Dot is one of the best purchases we've ever made. I love adding things to my shopping list just by telling Alexa from the kitchen, setting timers while we cook without having to push a button, and asking what the forecast is while I'm getting ready in the morning and picking out my outfit.

3. Books.

Really, is there anywhere else to buy books nowadays than Amazon? While Josh and I try to visit our library as much as possible instead of buying new books, there are certain things that we just want to own ourselves — I just pre-ordered this new book from Sheryl Sandberg, Option B: Facing Adversity, Building Resilience, and Finding Joy — and can't wait to read it!

4. Lens Cleaning Wipes.

Is anyone else completely anal about being sure their phone screen and glasses are spotless? I clean my phone screen once a day to remove smudges and keep bacteria off of it, and I do the same with my glasses and Apple Watch. I keep these lens cleaning wipes in a mason jar on my way out the door, so I can grab one and go.

5. Toiletries.

I'm just going to say it, I don't have time to go to the store throughout the week and pick up items we need like toiletries and beauty products. I get things like our Clarisonic Face Wash on Amazon and it's typically delivered to us in 24 hours — meaning I can wait until the very last minute to order. (P.S. you can also get Clarisonic brush head replacements on Amazon! So clever.)

6. Makeup.

I recently tried out this Jouer Long-Wear Lip Crème Matte Liquid Lipstick, and I am HOOKED! It stays on all day or night, and I love that it's available on Amazon in so many different hues.
