You girls know how much I love small businesses and the amazing individuals who pour their blood, sweat, tears, love, and passion into them. At this time of year, though, I can’t help but to turn into a bit of a crazed Amazon.com fangirl. What can I say? Bezos and company have saved this gal from many a holiday crisis and so this edition of Five Favorites is just for them.
How do I love you, Amazon dot com? Let me count the ways…
Their Amazon affiliate program gifts me and my family with commission on anything anyone buys when they click-through from my site. I cannot tell you how much this helps us cover all those unexpected costs that come with young family life.
If you have a blog and haven’t signed up yet, you totally should. Here are all the details!
And if you happen to be shopping on Amazon this season and would like to click-through my affiliate link first, I would be oh-so so so grateful!
Patience isn’t exactly my strong suit (and procrastination is) so the fact that anytime I order (almost) anything from Amazon I find a brown box on my stoop just two days later delights in ways that probably (or definitely) aren’t entirely virtuous (wink, wink).
Oh, and free shipping during the holidays for a mom who is buying gifts for six little ones? Such a blessing. Thank you kindly, sweet, speedy Prime.
How cool is it that Amazon allows you to add things to your wish list from other retailers? (You can get the browser button here if you don’t have one yet.)
I kind of use my wish list like I use Pinterest. I do add things that I hope to obtain one day, but I also add big crazy dream items that I probably won’t be buying anytime soon (if ever).
Like this fabulous bike with a four person passenger bucket! How cool? So cool.
Covet. Swoon. And all that jazz.
Do you have an Amazon wish list? I’d love to take a peek, if so, so leave a link in the combox! (My bucket bike, turquoise couch, apron-lovin’ list is here.)
Okay, well, not entirely sure how I feel about this one yet. Even as impatient as I am, I just don’t know that I’m ready to have a drone land in my front yard. I mean…
“The hard part here is putting in all the redundancy,” Bezos said. “All the reliability to say this can’t land on somebody’s head.”
Drones landing on my head? I’d die. DIE.
Still, you’ve got to hand it to them — Jeff Bezos doesn’t sit back and rest on his laurels, does he?
Here is why I am not the CEO of a multi-billion dollar company: I can’t even wrap my head around how they have basically every product in the world in stock to send me whenever I request. I guess that’s a little bit of an exaggeration, but tell me that isn’t crazy. What is this world we’re living in???
