I like to think of myself as an “Amazon Aficionado”. I’ve spent more hours than I care to share researching, reading reviews, and testing products from the site and feel like I have quite the collection of gems everyone needs to be ordering!! I mean, those daily packages and visits from the UPS man are justified if it’s for the greater good of this community…. right?? 🤣
My husband believes we are single-handedly keeping Jeff Besos in business…what can I say, that one swipe with the “BUY NOW” button is just too easy!! The upside of my lack of Amazon willpower for you is that I have found some hidden treasures that are not only budget friendly but are also so good I buy them again and again!!
Each item listed here I have, love, and use regularly or it didn’t make the cut!! I hope this list is helpful and is a resource you can come back to for reference when you are ready to try something new in each category.
I can’t wait to hear which ones you try; let me know in the comments which are your favorites and share the Amazon items not included that you love and swear by too! I’ll draw a random lucky winner to get a $50 amazon gift card from me to try out some of these amazing products!!! I have a feeling this is just part one, because my “research” and PRIME adventuring are far from over. 😉 Enjoy!

I use this every morning and night and always have a backup because it’s too good to run out!

If you think you’ve tried this gummy candy, think again - these are next level good! It’s the only brand I’ll eat, they are just that good!
#3: International Chewy Candy
I fell in love with these on my trip to China and thanks to Amazon I can still get them once in a while as a special treat!! They are worth the purchase!!
I love to use the WISH LIST feature in Amazon to save products and items I want to try in the future. You just scroll down under the price on the listing, tap “add to list”, then Wish List It makes it easy to save them for later. This way I can remember the recommendations and go back later when it works for me and do some more looking around or just checkout. Also it’s a great list to pull from if you share a PRIME account with your spouse… you can easily purchase items they actually want with a simple click!
Cheers to stress free gift giving!!
