Happy Amazon Prime Day(s)! Unless you are living under a retail rock, today (and yesterday) is a huge online sales event and there are some great deals to be had. I love ordering from Amazon and have quite literally ordered everything from protein bars to makeup. Today I thought I’d share some of my Amazon Prime picks (affiliate links used.)

Although I don’t have a college student (yet), my high school senior is already talking about decorating her dorm and I’m already thinking about things she’ll “need” to make college life pleasant. You know things have changed a lot since I was a college freshman in 1987. I’m fairly certain that milk crate book shelves, hot plates and corded phones with extra long cords so you can stretch them out to the hallway are nonexistent on must have dorm essentials today!

Here are some deals I’ve found that are perfect for college students or older teenagers as well as some items with universal appeal for anyone looking for space saving, organizing products!

Amazon Basics Microwave with free Echo Dot for $60: This voice-activated Amazon Microwave (what is this…the Jetsons?) costs $60 typically but during this promo Amazon is throwing in an Echo Dot for free.

The Fire TV Stick for $15 (normaly $39!). We have one and LOVE it. It’s the cheapest way to add Netflix, Hulu, Prime Video and tons of other streaming channels to your TV. Comes with an Alexa-powered voice remote.

Kindle Paperwhite for $85 This new Paperwhite gets better reviews than its predecessor, and this is the lowest price since it debuted earlier this year.

Keurig K-Mini Single Serve Coffee Maker (black only on sale so if a fun color is important…move along!) Keurig makes a great compact coffee maker.

Stone & Beam Vintage Task Lamp. Stone & Beam is an Amazon brand that has great urban/boho type decor on a budget. I love this classic vintage look desk lamp.

Savafieh Monaco Rug for just $59 (regularly priced $174!) or the trendy nuLOOM Moroccan rug for just $58.66 (regularly priced $169)

Otto & Ben Storage 30” Ottoman $24.86. Storage ottomans are great for storing throws, magazines and any type of clutter in a small space. Plus they can often double as a small coffee or side table.

Woven Storage Baskets $16.97. These are great for laundry, toys, shoes, etc!

Embrava BPA Free Water Bottle $13.55 (regularly priced $39.95) This all purpose large water bottle would be great for ANYONE who commutes!

Easy & Eco Life Bedside Bed Organizer Storage Rack Shelf Caddy Self Stick On Wall $15.49 This would be perfect for a dorm room or anywhere you need to maximize space!

Mrs. Meyer’s Candles (Pack of 2, $10.26) Lots of great scents, the Lemon Verbena sounds great to me.

Charcoal Deodorizing Bags Great if you don’t want candles burning! These are perfect for musty spaces like closets, bathrooms, laundry rooms (dorm rooms) and cars.

Book lovers you should also take note that you can save $5 off a $15 book purchase: Use code PRIMEBOOK19 so save on a hard copy book purchase of $15 or more on Amazon. Some of my recent favorites are An American Marriage and The Girl on the Train. I also stumbled across this brand new title that sounds great for teen girls, He Numbered the Pores on My Face: Hottie Lists, Clogged Pores, Eating Disorders, and Freedom from It All.

I'm Jamie, a 50-year-old Nashville working mom desperately seeking a few moments of Zen and zinfandel. I love to travel, find great deals, and talk with my hands. My husband and I have two daughters, three dogs, one cat and too much laundry. Email me at blondemomblog @ gmail.com.
