In the kitchen
I am. I want to see if the price decreases on the Ninja Hot and Cold Coffee Bar. If it does, I may spring for it.

We're getting tired of the whole K-cup thing. I used the coffee grounds in our compost during the summer and we have single-stream so the rinsed K-cup goes into recycling. But trying to recycle plastics has gotten to be a real PITB. I've been reading about plastics and it's just not good.

Probably not. I looked at a preview of what they will be offering and I didn't see anything that exciting.

Is there a preview of what they're offering somewhere? My husband has prime and I want to know if any of our bigger ticket baby items are going to be discounted!

Off topic, but I bought the reusable inserts for our Keurig so I don’t have to use the plastic k-cups. I bought mine at Bed Bath & Beyond years ago, but I see that Keurig has given in and is selling its own now.

I'm not positive but I am pretty sure that the Keurig I had came with one. They are more environmentally friendly than the plastic ones but they can be a pain to use. I didn't like the Keurig in general and gave it to my DD. It's packed up with her things for when she moves to her own place. The Bunn coffee maker I have makes coffee almost as fast as the Keurig but the quality is much better.

I don’t have prime. I just save up my list of what I need until it is over $25 and I get the free shipping. As far as Kcups, I used reusable cups that fit a Keurig for years. That way you use whatever your favorite coffees are and then just rinse and reuse the cups. The ones I like look like these and are sold on Amazon.

I may although I need to pay off bills before I'm sitting in the cold. But I do have Amazon Gift cards sitting there so I should be able to use those. I really just need a styrofoam cooler and some gorilla tape is all I need although I doubt those will be offered on Prime Day Ugh

Prime day is very serious for people who suffer from the BSAIDN virus

BSAIDN - Buying Stuff on Amazon I Don't Need

BSAIDN is a virus that has spread faster and affected more people than any other known illness. Both my wife and I have been infected for a few years now, and the disease is getting worse. It really got bad when I discovered Amazon's cheap and plentiful supply of small electronic components: relays, soft start modules, speed controls, voltage regulators, etc that I use in various projects. BSAIDN virus has progressed to the point where we are on a first name basis with all the Amazon delivery drivers. We suffer flareups (deliveries) about every week, occasionally two or three time a week.

We are very concerned about the October Prime, and have been discussing how we will deal with it. A 3D plastic printer is high on the list, could use a new small tablet and one of the Fire tablets seems like it might work, and the echo show 5 would be nice too :)

It is all so easy. Just push the button and it usually appears at my door the next day even if the next day is Sunday. I live in an apartment complex and I see the Amazon prime van most days, probably is every day I just don't see it every day. I am not the only one in this area who is hooked.

I see them all the time too. Their delivery service is excellent.

I will check it out; to see if anything I could use, at a good, reasonable price—- not expensive.

I'll check it out, of course. I don't need anything big but there are always a lot of little things on the side and I might pick some of them up.

Where my cats are
Almost every year my friend texts me and asks to order her a Fire stick when they are like $10 or $20. I should surprise her and ask her now if she needs another. And ask exactly how many tvs does she have? :crazy:

I might get something for the kid's or nieces and nephews for Christmas. I have one niece away at college so I'm trying to think of ideas for her. I have things I need; but I don't know if I'll get them there. Maybe if they have sheet sets with good reviews.

Pam, have you ever used a French press? I don't drink much coffee, but I have a small one from Amazon and
the coffee tastes really good. Mine is not fancy nor was it expensive,

Chewy is doing a sale right now too. Which happened last year too, other retailers jumping on the sale period and hoping to make more sales. I always cross compare across another website during Prime day. Sometimes they have the seemingly great deals that are higher then elsewhere or its on an inferior version.
