It seems like this week is all about shopping, with the Nordstrom Anniversary Sale kicking off (see Amy’s top picks in this post) and now it’s Amazon Prime Day! My next post will be full of updates on my progress at our new (old) house, Magnolia Cottage, but today I wanted to share what I think are the five best deals on Amazon today.

If you’re a regular reader, then you’ll recognize that most of these are items that we use and recommend in our own homes. I find that Prime Day can be a bit overwhelming, and I’m not a fan of the instant deals that get snapped up almost immediately, so these are items that should be available at these prices until the end of the day on July 16th.

First up is this sweet deal on a Nespresso espresso maker (plus 30 coffee capsules) for just $99. I love my Nespresso and whenever we’re in Europe, this is what the hotels have in their rooms instead of coffee makers.

Next up is the Amazon Fire Stick for only $14.99 (usually $39.99). We discontinued our cable/satellite TV service about two years ago and use the Fire Sticks to stream on our TVs. We have one for every TV in the house (three if you must know) and one for my son’s TV that he uses in his dorm room, and then we stream Hulu, Netflix, and Prime Video through them.

Amy and I both love our Dyson Stick vacuums, and if you read this post, then you know that my Dyson upright is almost 20 years old and still going strong–well worth every penny I spent on it! I’d rather spend a little more on a high quality item that I’m going to use forever than have to throw it away and buy a new one every few years. The V7 Animal is only $279.99 during Prime Day(s) and will go back up to $399.99 later this week. Dyson is almost always price controlled so these deals are few and far between!

My husband bought an InstantPot to use during his time as a geographical bachelor in Kansas and thinks it’s pretty amazing. This Plus6 is only $55.99 right now so if you’ve been wanting to try it to see if it’s worth the hype, this is a great price.

My kids have been wanting Apple Watches for awhile but I haven’t pulled the trigger because of the price. This deal could truly be Christmas in July for them since Apple’s Series 3 watch is only $199 during Prime Day; it will jump back up to $309 later this week. I have an Apple Watch and the functionality is pretty amazing compared to a Garmin or a Fit Bit, in my opinion.

OK, here’s a bonus because I realized that my top 5 are all electronics or appliances and while that’s where the best deals can usually be found, they’re not that fun. But I found these adorable low rain boots (with bows!!) that are under $20 and well, they are definitely fun. They come in a variety of colors if pink isn’t your thing, too.

I know there are so many great deals out there, so if you’ve found an amazing one that you want to share, please drop it in the comments for everyone. I’ll be back later this week with some updates on Magnolia Cottage. I’ve got five rooms painted and the only room that’s still in boxes is my son’s, but he’s in England until mid-August so I’ve got some time still. Back to my paint brush!
