AMAZON...INNOVATIVE PRODUCTS THAT HAVE MADE LIFE EASIER

It’s the beginning of the month and once again time to share some magnificent Amazon prime purchases. This month, I thought I would focus on some innovative and inexpensive products that have enhanced my life or made every day living easier. Don’t forget to link up tomorrow with my Friend, Tanya from The Other Side of the Road for ever-growing Prime Purchases link-up. Coming at cha with "9" items of course!

1. Immersion Blender
My dear friend Lisa got me hooked on the most amazing Cauliflower Soup, and this immersion blender is the perfect thing to get all creamy. I use it for all kinds of things, including easy peasy put it down in the glass and blend smoothies!
BUY HERE

2. Luggage Scales
Many of you know my mom was in Florida for three weeks recently. She was bound and determined to only take one suitcase but was so worried it was going to be over on weight. We tried regular scales but it was just too close to call. How she longed for a luggage scale that would give her more accuracy. Now she has one for the future. Long story short however, her suitcase with 2 pounds under....woohoo
BUY HERE

3. Luggage Cubes
While we're talking travel....(Can you tell I am excited about an upcoming Spring Trip?) These are all the rage and I cannot wait to use them for our next vacation. I really think it’s going to make all the difference in my packing.Well, if I don't take 30 outfits, lol.
 
BUY HERE

4. Monkey Fist
I have been walking a few mornings a week at our local mall. 3/4 of the stores have left but the mall is still up and running and there are often groups of walkers in the morning. Yes, I am one of the youngest, lol. However, Mr. Nine wanted me to be safe so I carry this monkey fist in my pocket if no one is walking with me.
 
BUY HERE

5. Remote for Photos
OK, I have showed you this tripod and remote control before but that was before I fell in utter love with it! I take my big tripod for my regular camera and put the attachment on it for my phone for full length shots and the remote works so so great! The fashion pictures in number 9 are taken using this remote.
BUY HERE

6. Salad Spinner
I buy a lot of loose-leaf lettuce, otherwise, not in the package. So, I feel the need to wash it extremely well as I do lettuce fresh from the garden in the summer. I used to just dry my leaves on paper towels on the counter but it took so long. The salad spinner is the perfect device to get those leaves dry and ready to eat!
BUY HERE

 7. Under Shelf Baskets
I am on a mission to completely organize our pantry this spring. These under-shelf stacking baskets Will be perfect for things like baggy boxes, foil, fruits, onions and sweet potatoes.
 


BUY HERE

8. Shoe Inserts
Sometimes, especially a pump or heel just needs a little more cushion. Or, maybe a shoe is a little bit big and you love it so much that you want it to fit just right! Enter these satiny and very comfortable shoe inserts. They stick onto the sole of your shoe and are so amazing! The perfect shoe fix if needed!
BUY HERE

9. YES....and FASHION
So, some people may not consider fashion innovative, but the fact that Amazon is killing it with so many great affordable fashions certainly makes my life a lot easier! I had to show one of my latest fabulous finds! This long navy cardigan with white stripes and a touch of mustard is perfect for the spring and I’ll be pulling it out again in the Fall! Just look how cute all the buttons are and it is super soft! AND the tall boots are from Amazon too and some of my most comfortable. 

BUY CARDIGAN HERE // BOOTS HERE

Have a great and innovative 
week ahead brilliant Babes!

  4. Amazon is just killing it, aren't they? I see so many cute and inexpensive things from their sites or other bloggers. That photo you took from the tripod looks great! Aren't tripods life savers?! I have the salad spinner but I can't wait to get my grubby hands on those luggage sets! I pack for three when going on vacation so I know it will help with my OCD! Happy Monday Andrea and I hope your day is off to a great start!

  5. Thanks for reminding me to order a luggage scale. The Mister gets so grumpy when he has to pay extra $$$ for my bag, especially when I only wear half of what I brought! Have a great week, Andrea!

  14. I'm pretty sure that tripod is sitting in my Amazon wishlist currently because of you lol. I am in need of a new one since my old one busted somehow. Different one... not that one!

    ReplyDelete
  15. I need that luggage scale! We always struggle with our bags and how much they weigh, and there is nothing worse than having to deal with it right at the airport. Argh. Where are you off to for Spring break?
    I love that cardigan you purchased. The size, shape, and the colors go together like my favorite snack, PB &J.

    ReplyDelete
  16. I need to get on the Amazon bandwagon. I rarely order things from them for no reason whatsoever...LOL!!
    I do miss my immersion blender, but when ours broke and we downsized, I decided not to replace it. So I use the regular blender. Maybe when it conks out, I'll just get the immersion one.
    XOXO

  17. I do love my immersion blender and luggage cubes! I think the cubes are so genius and have bought sets for everyone in the family! That monkey fist is a great idea for walking alone. I agree with Mr Nine! I'm starting to try a few fashion things on Amazon and so far, so good.

  18. I need to get myself a monkey fist. You have so many great finds here. I love those little insoles for your pumps, and I also need those scales to weigh my luggage. Hahaha! I always try to take it right to the limit!

    ReplyDelete
  19. Just got back from our trip and I soooo could've used those luggage scales- definitely need to invest in one- my suitcase ended up being 64 pounds-can you believe it? Jet Blue was wonderful and letting it through BUT now I know for the future :) Also first time using the packing cubes and they were awesome!

  20. A monkey fist??? What the heck? I've never heard of that. Gotta check that out.
    & heading right now to order those under the cabinet baskets. Those will fit perfectly in my pantry!!!

  21. Those packing cubes the best! I could use a luggage scale. I'm always shocked how much my luggage weighs when I get to the airport! That striped cardigan is darling on you!

  22. What does the monkey fist do? Ive never heard of it. I have to walk a few blocks to work, wonder if I need one!! I have an immersion blender, don’t use it often, but when you need it...you need it!

    ReplyDelete
  23. I think I need an immersion blender. I have packing cubes and love them. My parents have always used a salad spinner but I just dry mine with paper towels!

    ReplyDelete
  24. You find the best stuff on Amazon!! In fact, because of you I find myself ordering from there more often these days. I love packing cubes. Although, I found them at TJ Maxx on clearance! They are pink and blue, guess people didn't want them. I think I made like ten dollars for two sets (four bags each).

  25. Nice ideas. My son might benefit from the phone tripod.

    ReplyDelete
  26. Gosh, I don't even know where to begin!!! HA! As soon as I saw the immersion blender I thought how much I love mine and then I started reading and saw the shout out. A million thanks my sweet friend! I love my salad spinner too. The best. I'm going to order that iphone tripod. I've had it on my list and wasn't sure I'd use it, but you've convinced me I need it. 😘Yes, to under counter baskets. I have them in my pantry. I'm going to remember the shoe inserts too and before our trip next month to see the kids, I'm going to get some packing cubes. I love, love, love that sweater!!!! Happiest of Mondays! XOXO

  27. I too was curious about the Monkey fist! I don't like walking alone because I often feel vulnerable.

  28. I need those shelves! and I have that same "Paracord" Monkey fist in green on my key ring. Did you know, That actually is a life saving device? If you ever need rope, just undo it.

  29. I don't know what I would do without my immersion blender or salad spinner! I have never heard of a Monkey Fist, i need to hear more about this. Isn't it sad about the demise of malls, glad you can still put yours to good use!

    ReplyDelete
  30. Well, I have the blender, the salad spinner, and the remote. GReat minds think alike. I've had so much fun putting together my Prime Purchases post for tomorrow. Hope yours is off to great start Andrea!!

  31. Having a luggage saver has SAVED me a lot of headache traveling all these years! I still have to get on board with the cubes and I keep saying I will. You have convinced me I need that salad spinner! Happy Monday Andrea!

  39. I'm intrigued by the monkey fist (you look so pretty holding it in the picture btw). I tried researching it on Amazon but got little information about the safety purpose. Travel packing cubes and a luggage scale is so needed for my over-packing self.

    ReplyDelete
  40. Thanks so much for the mention and for linking up tomorrow. I have never heard of a monkey fist - is it for self defense? You will love, love, love the packing cubes. I couldn't believe how much I could fit into a carryon using the cubes. And those shelves are going on my "shopping ideas" list for later purchase. Genius. Have a terrific week!

    ReplyDelete
  41. I bet you are the cutest walker! I have to look into the monkey fist. Also those luggage scales!

    ReplyDelete
  42. I got that tripod for Christmas from my sister and I LOVE it! It's so easy to use and will be great for summer vacations. And portable luggage scales?! How did I not know about these before? You always share the best Amazon finds! Hope you had the best weekend girlfriend! Happy Monday! XO

  46. I had never heard of a monkey fist before! What a neat tool! How crazy is it that you can buy a luggage scale on Amazon?! I mean, that's just too fun!
