There are certain things in this world that help make life so much easier. I love those things. Those things are FANtastic. Easy is always welcome in my home. We can be best friends forever, because I need easy in my life. I’ve found this to be especially true as a new mother. I’ve also found this to be even more true as a new mother who lives way out in the sticks. Sometimes driving 20+ minutes to get to a decent store with a 7 month in tow is less than ideal or desirable. I can’t tell you how many times I’ve thought to myself, “Can’t someone just ship all the junk I need to me without me paying an arm and a leg for shipping, cuz that would be AWESOME!”.
Actually, I have that thought roughly 3 times a week to be honest. But you know what?Thanks to Amazon Prime, l DO have junk that I need shipped to me, and it arrives in just 2 days without me worrying about extra shipping costs. I never have to load my baby into her car seat and waste my gas driving into town to go pick up the 2 things I needed, and IT. IS. GLORIOUS!
Now when I need to purchase something, I usually ask myself, “Can I wait two days to get this item?” If the answer is yes, I just Prime it! Seriously. I’ve “Primed” almost everything, y’all. Laundry detergent and undergarments are not exempt from that list. I should probably bake my UPS lady something sweet, because she stops at my house almost every single day. Bless her heart.
So if you’ve never heard of Amazon Prime until now, let me fill you in here. Amazon.com offers a special membership program that offers ROCK STAR benefits to paying customers. For $99 a year (SO SO SO SO SO worth it), you will have access to the following things:
- UNLIMITED free two-day shipping on eligible orders with no minimum order size. (Hallelujah!)
- Access to Prime Instant Video, where you can instantly watch over 40,000 movies and TV episodes
- Access to Prime Music, which offers unlimited and ad-free access to hundreds of Prime Playlists and more than a million songs
- Free unlimited book borrows for Kindle users
- Free access to Amazon Mom (hello, 20% off diapers!)
- Plus several other amazing benefits that you can learn more about here.
Isn’t that AWESOME? I’ve been using Amazon Prime for over 3 years, and I don’t ever want to go back to life without it. For as many times as I have things shipped to my door, that $99 has saved me so much money in shipping fees, but more importantly it allows my life to be easier in so many ways. Amazon Prime is especially great during the holidays. My Christmas shopping is basically done!
What’s even better than me bragging about how my life has been easier than it used to be and I don’t pay a ton for shipping? Why, I’m glad you asked.
YOU can have it, too! If you want to try out Amazon Prime for a month before committing to paying $99 for a year, you can start out with a free trial. No hidden fees or anything! This would definitely come in handy to help you get your last minute shopping done. I’d love to share prime with you through my affiliate link.

I hope this helps you out a little bit with your holiday shopping. Who knows, maybe you’ll love it as much as I do and become a member! There’s so many great benefits, and I just can’t help but to sing praises about Amazon Prime. If you’re not already a member and decide to try it out, let me know how you like it!
