Amazon Prime: why you need to have it

If you are like most people these days, you probably shop online all the time. With 4 young kids, I almost never go to malls anymore, I do most of my shopping online. That is where Amazon prime is one of the best tools to have on your side. No matter what you are looking for, Amazon has it, most of the time cheaper than retail stores, and with Amazon prime you can get it delivered in 2 days.

Seriously, if you haven't joined Amazon prime yet, you absolutely have to give it a try. We've been prime members for over 4 years and we have loved everything about the membership. From our kids being able to watch free videos anywhere in the U.S. to receiving free 2-day shipping, the possibilities are endless.

I cannot begin to tell you how many times I needed a gift for a birthday party and waited to the last minute but I wasn't worried because Amazon prime was there and the gifts always arrived on time. Whenever I am looking for something, I look on Amazon first because Amazon has everything, literally :). We've bought mattresses for the kids room, toys for the kids, clothes for the whole family, personalized jewelry, water filters for the fridge dvd players for the car, and so many more.

Amazon prime does cost $99 (or $49 if you have a student account) a year but it is so worth it for the 2-day free shipping when you shop often and all the videos that you get to stream for free. We have 3 kids and this is such an amazing feature, particularly when we are traveling.

One thing that I have purchased consistently on Amazon over the last 3 years has been our family Halloween costume. I am not good at DIY but I can always find what I am looking for on Amazon. Check out our awesome costumes from the past 3 years

This year's Halloween costume is also courtesy of Amazon. I love that I can shop in the comfort of my home and get things delivered so fast without ever leaving the house. Amazon is simply the best place to find anything you need in life and with the added benefit of free 2-day shipping, prime makes it the absolute best deal. So if you haven't joined Amazon prime, go do it and enjoy the awesome benefits like all of us.
