Oh, Amazon.ca! You Had Me at "Savings"

Sonix iPhone case

In 2004, I made my first purchase on Amazon.ca. I was engaged to be married to my then fiancรฉ who was about to celebrate his 33rd birthday. With so many things to prepare before our big day, did I really want to waste time at the mall trying to find the ideal birthday gift? Of course not. I still had invitations to make, a honeymoon to plan and, to top it off, I had to help my parents pack up our old house to prepare for a big move right before my bridal shower. Nope. I needed a convenient, stress-free solution. And so I turned to online shopping and purchased some DVD collections of the first few seasons of his favourite sitcom "All in the Family", which just so happened to be on sale. Score!

Fast forward to 13 years later. We now have a family of our own, full-time jobs and hectic schedules. And if you had told me back then that I would be running a successful blog while simultaneously juggling mom life, housework and a teaching career, I would have laughed in your face. Yet, here we are. I can't say that I have perfected any of my roles as either a mom, a wife, a teacher or a blogger, but I've become pretty good at online shopping and saving myself some undue stress by signing up for Amazon Prime so I can enjoy fast free shipping. I'm a woman of convenience so it only made sense to partner up with one of my favourite online retailers Amazon.ca. I am excited to announce that, for the next several months, I will be sharing some fabulous sales on Amazon.ca, including Amazon Prime early access deals. I've also registered as an Amazon Associate and look forward to sharing my favourite finds, such as my most recent purchase which included:

Mosiso Plastic Hard Case with Keyboard Cover and Screen Protector for my new MacBook Air 13 inch. It was super easy to install and the screen protector was a nice added bonus. The keyboard cover is easily removed and the baby pink case is translucent so you can still see the logo when lit. It currently retails for $23.99 and is eligible for Amazon Prime shipping.

VicTsing Wireless Doorbell Kit Portable Waterproof Doorbell Kit to replace our old wireless doorbell. Unlike our battery operated doorbell, this one features a small receiver that plugs directly into the wall. The waterproof pushbutton transmitter can be screwed to the wall or adhered using the double-sided tape that comes with it. It has a bunch of fun melodies from which to choose but I stuck with a basic ring. My favourite feature? The volume control. Can we say, "Zzzz!" This kit currently retails for $18.99 and is also eligible for Amazon Prime shipping.

8PACK Sticky Anti-Slip Gel Pads which I have been wanting to try for the longest time. I currently use one in my Jeep to hold my iPhone while driving and my daughter uses them to hang fan art featuring her favourite K-pop band. If they get dirty or covered with dust, you can just clean them with water to renew stickiness. The 8-pack currently retails for $10.99 and is also eligible for Amazon Prime shipping.

There are so many other great finds that I can't wait to share with you. And, when I upgrade my iPhone and pass down my older model to my daughter, I'm sure she'll want to share which Sonix iPhone case she picks out, too!

    I don't remember what my first purchase was from Amazon but I do know that I got addicted and now I love to just search Amazon because you can find things that you can't find anywhere else and you can usually get great prices especially on the LIGHTNING DEALS.
