Inside: Amazon is treating us to a special FALL Prime Day shopping event this week. Don’t miss checking out some of my favorite products at their lowest prices!
Attention Amazon shoppers!
I have fantastic news for those of us who love a deal. (And who might have those smiling brown boxes show up on their porch a little too often🙋🏻♀️.)
Because we just can’t wait for more spectacular bargains during the online shopping drought between July and Black Friday, Amazon is giving us more Prime Day! It starts today, Tuesday, October 10, and goes through tomorrow, October 11.
I expect most of my personal Amazon favorites to be on sale, so I’m sharing a few of my picks so that you can grab them at their lowest prices and see if you love them as much as I do!
If you’re not an Amazon deal veteran cyber shopper, I’ve also included a few tips to navigate Prime Day, as well as the benefits and how to become an Amazon Prime member at the end of this post.

1. Fancy Panz.
Fancy Panz are the very first thing going into my cart. How did I not know about these??
Here’s why I’m so excited about this perfect entertaining product:
- They dress up and protect a not-so-attractive or sturdy aluminum foil pan
- The premium version comes with a gel pack to place under the foil pan that can be frozen, boiled, or microwaved to keep food warm or cool
- No more foil or plastic wrap—they come with a clear cover perfect for travel and storage
- No clean up—just throw the foil pan away, or cover and place it straight in the fridge
- No more leaving dishes behind—take out the disposable pan of food at the event when you leave for guests to continue to enjoy
- They’re easy to stack and carry
2. My living room washable rug.
The neutral color and pattern of this washable area rug could honestly match any room in my house. And this is exactly why I chose it because this room has a different color palette for every season. Plus, it will be super cleanable—my best furry friend loves a rug for other reasons, lol.
3. My family room rug.
My indoor-outdoor geometric area rug is one of the best deals I’ve found for this really large 9×13 size! And I love how it adds the right touch of lightness to break up the dark floor and furniture in this room.
For help in choosing the right area rug, see the post, “Area Rug Rules: Easy Guide to the Perfect Size and Placement (+Printable)“.
4. My everyday white dishes.
I’ve written a whole post on why I love these Fitz and Floyd Everyday White dishes. And several years later, I still think they are the ideal dinnerware.
Read all the reasons I sing their praises in the post, “4 Reasons Why These Are the Best White Everyday Dishes“.
My favorite features of this Ryobi glue gun?
- No more falling over—it stands up on its own.
- No need to be next to an electrical outlet. Or dealing with a cord that doesn’t reach or gets in the way.
- I already have multiple batteries ready to go at all times because it’s interchangeable with the rest of my husband’s fairly extensive collection of Ryobi tools.😊
As a coffee drinker, I like to make sure my teeth aren’t coffee colored too, but I don’t like the idea of using harsh peroxide too often. I’m thrilled to have found these all natural and nontoxic Lumineux Whitening Strips because I can touch up my teeth in 30 minutes and as often as I like without worry! And bonus, exclusively during Prime Days, you can get 40% off if you use my link: https://urlgeni.us/amazon/KATE40
14. Sonicare toothbrush.
And after my hygienist told me I brush a little too aggressively, my other planned purchase this Prime Day is a Sonicare toothbrush system. Having a charger on the bathroom counter has always kept me from trying one, but I’m now kind of nerding out about getting a techie toothbrush!

How to Find Deals on Amazon Prime Day.
With over a million discounts, where to start?? Here are a few different ways to navigate and shop the Prime Day deals:
1. Find and keep a tab open for the Amazon Prime Deals page.
It’s where you’ll be able to find all of the deals in the sale.
2. Check back often.
New deals are constantly added throughout the day, plus “lightning deals” that are only available for a short time.
3. Set up deal alerts.
If you’re shopping for something specific, set up deal alerts to notify you if that item goes on sale. Search deal alerts on the Amazon app and it should pop up your most recently searched items to allow you to set up a notification.
4. Shop the ‘Today’s Deals’ Page.
If you don’t have anything in particular you’re shopping for, go to the Today’s Deals page for that day’s deals. You can filter by category, brand, or rating to narrow down what you’re interested in.
5. Add Favorites to Your Cart Now, and Check for Deals on Prime Day.
If you’ve already been shopping for some items, put them in your cart now. They may not be part of the Prime Day sale, but it’s an easy way to check over the two days to see if you can save a few dollars.
6. Shop My Favorite Amazon Products.
If you’re looking for products for the home that I love, go to the Southern Home and Hospitality Amazon Storefront to see if they’re part of the sale.
