It’s been a while, so I figured it was about time for another Amazon round-up! I always love hearing about what people buy there – because their inventory is so vast, you could literally spend days looking through all the fashion, kitchen & household gadgets, jewelry, etc. So, hopefully these posts are helpful in narrowing down the best & most useful purchases for those on a budget. Here are my current favorites for February:
Amber Glass Soap Dispensers
Beautiful refillable containers that look so chic sitting on your kitchen counter (or you can set them on this tray). I love the size of these & the neutral labels, plus they are such a great price!
Blue Light Blocking Glasses
My old pair of blue light glasses broke recently, so I ordered these to replace them & I really like how lightweight they are. The thin frames feel very modern and they’re comfortable enough to wear all day long. Be sure to clip the coupon for an extra 5% off!
Gold Bangle Bracelet
This bracelet is the one I get asked about the most often and anytime I share it here, it sells out quickly. But it’s worth mentioning again because it’s one I wear almost everyday and it looks so high-end (another option here).
2 Layer Portable Food Storage Container
I took this to a brunch potluck with friends recently and everyone wanted to know where I got it. This has been a lifesaver for carrying treats to school (pre-COVID), carting food to family get-togethers & parties and delivering treats to friends. The cupcake/muffin inserts are removable and you can fit a standard 9×13 pan inside each layer!
High Waist Joggers
My friend Kendi shared about these & they looked so good on her that I immediately ordered them – she never steers me wrong, so I knew they were a safe bet! I got my usual size and the fit is perfect – so soft & stretchy and great for lounging around the house in. They come in tons of different colors & patterns and they have a 30-day full-money-back warranty.
Pan Organizer Rack
One of the best things I’ve ever bought for my mom (according to her). The cupboard under her stove was such a mess and you would have to move three pans just to get to the one you wanted. This solved all that and actually created more space so now she has room for cookie sheets, cooling racks & cutting boards too! You can use this horizontally or vertically depending on the height of your cabinet.
Longline Padded Sports Bra
I think I mentioned this workout top before, but it’s quickly become one of my favorites. I’ve been wearing it so much lately that I ended up ordering more colors! I recommend sticking to your usual size unless you have a larger bust. Side note: I don’t think this has enough compression for running, but it’s great for all other types of exercises.
Oval Marble Tray
Perfect for pairing with the amber soap dispensers shown above – but this would also be so pretty on a vanity with perfume bottles or to store your favorite jewelry that you wear frequently. This larger divided tray is another great option too (be sure to clip the coupon for an extra 5% off!).
I actually counted and discovered that my mom has 10 rugs throughout the house. Whenever the dog runs up & down the hallway, they inevitably slide around and there’s one in the kitchen that I am constantly tripping on. So these handy grippers were the perfect solution to hold all her rugs in place & ensure that the corners lay flat without leaving any marks or damage. The best part is that they are washable & reusable so you can move them around as needed & they will last for a long time.
Beaded Huggie Hoops
I have had really good luck with Amazon jewelry lately – I think the key is to choose styles that are simple and be sure to read all the reviews thoroughly. These dainty hoops are perfect for wearing in my second hole – these come in several different styles (I bought the beaded and the trio bead).
Travel Dispenser Bottles
I know not many of us are traveling right now, but this is one of those things that I know will come in handy in the future. Each cylinder contains four small bottles that you can fill with shampoo, conditioner, body wash & lotion and it easily dispenses them all – so genius! I plan on using these for camping, long weekend getaways to the beach & our upcoming Spring Break trip.
Bamboo Scrub Brush + Holder
Get ready to throw out all your sponges & scour pads because this tool cleans dishes even better! The sturdy bristles remove everything without damaging your pans and it looks so nice sitting next to the sink in this little ceramic dish.
CZ Adjustable Tennis Bracelet
I have a hard time with chain bracelets because they are often too big on me. So, I’m finding that I prefer styles that are adjustable so I can get a perfect fit. This one has the look of an expensive tennis bracelet and it looks so nice stacked with other pieces (also comes in rose gold & silver).
Gold Band Ring
This is another ring that I’ve owned for a while & get asked about often (warning: this also has a high sell-out risk!). I wear mine on my ring finger and stack the beaded ring (below) on top of it.
18K Gold Plated Croissant Ring
One of my favorite designs that has a retro feel – I ordered the large dome option & got mine in a bigger size so I could wear it on my pointer finger as more of a statement piece.
18K Gold Bead Stacking Ring
Perfect for stacking with other bands – I’m a big fan of this beaded ball detail & this pretty ring is no exception!
18K Gold Quilted Ring
This looks practically identical to the popular Chanel ring – I ordered the Gold Mid option and bought in a larger size so I can wear on my pointer finger. This also comes in silver & there’s matching hoop earrings here.
18K White Gold Plated CZ Tennis Necklace
This looks so much like the BaubleBar version I recently bought, but it’s about half the price! One of my friends got this and I was amazed by how expensive it looked – would make a great last-minute Valentine’s Day gift!
Sock Drawer Organizer
File this under something I should have purchased years ago. I know it’s something small but it makes me so happy to be able to see all my socks at a quick glance & to not have to rummage through to find the pair I’m looking for. I love it so much that I ordered another one for my underwear & bralettes!
Layered Monogram Pendant Necklace
These are actually two separate necklaces, so you can wear them alone or together. The paper clip chain style is so popular right now and the quality is great. I like that the monogram pendant is slightly smaller than the coin necklaces I own, which makes it more versatile. For only $11, this would make a great gift!
Blush Loafer Mules
These are a great alternative for the Sam Edelman & Gucci mules if you like that look but don’t want to spend a fortune! I Think these will be perfect for when the weather warms up a bit & we get closer to spring. They come in several different colors (also eyeing the camel croc) & get great reviews!
Stackable Water Bottle Holder
One of my least favorite cabinets to open is the one with all our stainless steel water bottles – because you reach for one and inadvertently knock all the others down. This acrylic holder alleviates that frustration by neatly stacking them all horizontally so you can quickly grab & go. This set gets you a 2-pack (which holds 6) or you can get a 4-pack here.
