How would we have survived the pandemic and the height of the quarantine without Amazon? No, seriously, I think some of our neighbors have even commented on the quantity of deliveries that we do get to our home. Let’s just put it this way – we took the pandemic very seriously, lol. Thankfully, we have been very good at recycling all those boxes, whether for crafts for our kids or to ship out gifts to friends or family! And while Amazon Prime Day was postponed (originally scheduled for July), we have become experts in Amazon shopping!
So, we thought we would share our Top 5 Amazon Prime Day Deals! All of these items are tools that we use in our home everyday, and some of them we have even shared in previous posts. In our home, they have become game changers!
#5 – Stretch Resistance Bands by WODFitters – Boy, am I glad that we invested in a home gym 2 years ago!! It’s shocking, but we really haven’t missed the formal dining room at all! Considering we only used that room twice a year, we are definitely used the space more wisely. The pandemic put it to the test, as we both took out our stress and anxiety in the gym, especially on those cold gloomy days back in March and April. Over the past 2 years, we have continued to add to our home gym, including Resistance Bands. While these aren’t the exact brand that we use at home, we have found that training using Resistance Bands has become an essential part of our workout. The best part, they don’t take up a lot of space in your home, and you can use them anywhere!
#4 – Reusable Produce Bags by Mipruct – Now that we are back to doing our own grocery shopping again, I am so happy to be using these Reusable Produce Bags again. WHEN I remember to bring them, it is shocking just how much plastic I can avoid during a shopping run. Truth, I think I may grab this 24 pack of bags so that we can use them to start organizing toys and even puzzles in the playroom. This simple life hack can bring you one step closer to saving the planet.
#3 – Foam Roller from ProSourceFit – I hate to say it, but as we have gotten older, we have become more and more cognizant of the importance of stretching. It has become critical to our recovery, but also our strength program. If you don’t take the extra 15-20 minutes to stretch, you are missing an important part of your workout, and over time, your body will take a major hit. Foam rolling has become an essential part of our strength program, and ProSource Fit offers a great option to add to your home.
#2 – Premium Stainless Steel Cups by Greens Steel – With three kiddos in check, our kitchen used to be littered with plastic sippy cups, many of which became mismatched over the years and simply had to be pitched when we couldn’t find all the parts. Our cabinets became a wasteland of random plastic cups and their parts. It was so frustrating to throw this away, knowing that we were just littering the earth for our children and their future. But glass cups simply aren’t an option with 3 kids under the age of 7. Stainless steel was the solution and we made the switch. Cups, plates, straws and even chopsticks. Try it, you won’t regret it.
#1 – Total Classic Original Blender by Blendtec – This appliance is the beating heart of our kitchen. Essential and life changing. We can’t live without it. Our Blendtec has lasted nearly 10 years and we haven’t had a single issue. Make smoothies, shakes, dressings, salsas, batters, nut butters or even soups (in some cases, the blending process heats your soup as well) in one appliance. Truthfully, I never even use my food processor. Some of our favorite smoothie recipes include the Banana Berry Power Smoothie and the Blackberry Peach Delight Smoothie. Catch us on Taco Tuesday, and we are usually making our homemade 5 minute Fire-Roasted Salsa, which couldn’t be easier in the Blendtec. If you are looking for an amazing gift for your spouse, this is it! And the price is right!!!
Please let us know if you order any of these items and how they work for you. You have to have the right tools in your home to live Focused on Fit!
