I caved. For the past few years that I had known Prime Day to exist, I hadn’t purchased anything. I resisted the deals and survived. This year was a bit different. For one thing, I have $$$. I am trying to save most of what I make this summer to buy a car, but I still am making more money in one summer than I ever have before #bless. I couldn’t resist Prime Day this year. Almost all of the items I bought were extremely practical things I had been wanting for a while and were marked down to a great price. I don’t feel guilty about any of my purchases at all which I think is a HUGE win. Here’s what I got:
Get it here. Ryan bought me a Kindle Fire HD 4 years ago for our first Christmas. I loved that thing for a while and refused to read my e-books on anything else. However, I slowly began to convert to reading on my iPhone. It was more portable than the Fire and I always had it with me. I decided to get the Paperwhite because I struggle to read my e-books in the sunlight. One of my favorite things to do is read at the beach or on my deck in the summer and I just couldn’t bang those e-books out with all the glare on my screen. The Paperwhite solves that problem and it also has a backlight so I can still read in the dark if I want! I chose the white color and it’s super sleek and SO portable. I can’t wait to read my first book on it!
Get it here. I had one of these on my bed at my apartment in Philly, but I needed a new Queen sized one! I scored this one on lightning deal for only $23. I haven’t taken it out of the packaging yet because it’s going right to West Chester but I’ll have to update you once I use it.
Laminator and Laminating Pouches
Get the laminator. Get the pouches. This was a future SLP purchase! I have a feeling I’ll probably be using this a lot during grad school come August so I’m excited to have scored it for under $20. I got the pouches on a lightning deal for super cheap as well. Really excited to test it out!
Get it here. Again, this was a grad school purchase! I figured a label maker would be good to have for the future and to label my supplies, games, etc. We use this label maker at work and I really like it! You can even get colored label paper too which is awesome.
Get it here. I also bought myself a new SD card because I really don’t think I’ve bought a new one for myself in like 4 years. The one I do have is only 8GB and this new one is 32! I’m planning on making this my vlog camera card. I scored this on lightning deal as well for $11!
The last 3 Harry Potter Books
Get the boxed set. If you haven’t heard, I’m working on finishing the Harry Potter series for the first time! During Prime Day, they also had a deal buy $15 worth of books, get $5 off. I used this to my advantage and purchased the final 3 books since I only owned books 1-4. I had to get the classic Scholastic paperback covers so the new books would match my old ones. The only thing I’m bummed about is the new ones have a different page texture than the old ones I have. This is such a silly thing to be bummed about but I really wanted them all to be the same! PS: Which HP book is your favorite? Seems like everyone loves books 4 and 5! That’s it for my Prime Day purchases! Did you shop on Prime Day? What did you get?
