There’s a reason to be excited for Monday, and it’s not just because there’s going to be a new episode of the Bold Moves Podcast! It’s Prime Day!
If you’re not familiar, Prime Day is a “holiday” from Amazon specifically for its Amazon Prime members.
An amazing photographer I worked with years ago (who took the picture below, and who has since passed away) gave me my first membership to Amazon Prime as a gift, and I think of him every time I use it! Primarily, being a Prime member gets you free one or two-day shipping on almost everything you see on the site.
You also get access to Amazon Prime Movies (their streaming service that features original content), Prime Music (same, but with music), as well as Kindle books, or Kindle Unlimited!
Since Amazon purchased Whole Foods, now Prime members get discounts at the register at Whole Foods, too, which I’m grateful for!
If you’re not a Prime member yet, and I’ve convinced you, you can sign up here for a 30-day free trial!
Once you’re a member, mark your calendar for this Monday at noon Pacific time for a day and a half of deals!
One can’t really predict what they will put on sale, what type of deal it’ll be (like a spotlight deal or lightning deal that gives you a limited time to purchase), but aside from membership, I’d love to share a few of my favorite and/or frequent Amazon Prime purchases!
Instant Pot* - this has been a game-changer for cooking! There are tons of recipes (here are some of mine) for this handy device, which is great for if you purchase something like a roast and forget to put it in in the morning! You get the effects of an all-day slow-cook in just under an hour!
If microwaves freak you out, but you still want to warm things (or you want to cook, but don’t want to pre-heat your whole oven), let me recommend the Nu Wave! It’s a great tool for heating up smaller items, or reheating food!
Magnesium has been a game-changer for us in terms of getting help falling asleep naturally. We order this regularly and also use it to supplement when we don’t get enough greens in our day!
Of course, since you know I’m anti-single use plastic and try to avoid it whenever I can, I have to recommend my bamboo utensil set, which is where I store my stainless steel straws! Check it out so that you can keep your own items with you in a handy pouch, and feel less guilt around what we’re doing to our oceans! I actually need to get a second set for Tommy!
I think that about covers it for physical products… Unless you want to check out the 22 must-have makeup list items for my Mandie’s Makeup Mastery online academy for makeup artists, as there are some of my favorite makeup items there!
Every single podcast episode I do comes with book recommendations from the guests. Since I am interviewing such amazing people and success leaves clues, I figure my listeners and viewers would appreciate book recommendations from the people whose stories inspire them!
Some of my favorite books (most of which are personal development) are:
The Little Prince by Antoine de Saint-Exupery
The Compound Effect by Darren Hardy
You Are A Badass at Making Money by Jen Sincero
Get Rich, Lucky Bitch by Denise Duffield-Thomas
Think and Grow Rich by Napoleon Hill
The Desire Map by Danielle LaPorte
The Firestarter Sessions, also by Danielle Laporte
Ok, that about covers my amazon recommendations that I can think of now! I hope you enjoy them!
