Amazon Prime day is almost up on us. If you're an Amazon Prime member, this is a great opportunity to get some good deals, and let's face it – who doesn't like shopping in your pajamas and having boxes magically delivered to your door? I've put together a list of my best recommendations on what you should buy on Amazon Prime Day. I hope you check them out.

What is Amazon Prime Day, anyway?
Amazon Prime Day is an exclusive shopping holiday for Amazon Prime subscribers. Prime Day 2019 will last a full 48 hours, ending at 11:59 p.m. on Tuesday, July 16. Unlike Black Friday or Cyber Monday, deals last a little longer to give you more time to shop and compare. If you don't have Amazon Prime, you can sign up for a free trial that will allow you to take advantage of these killer deals. You can always cancel later but we really enjoy our Amazon Prime membership. It's made our life a lot easier and we really enjoy the entertainment options.
Already have Amazon Prime and want to gift it to someone else? It makes an awesome wedding, baby, or housewarming gift:
What are the best deals on Amazon Prime Day?
You can expect to find savings on tech products like 4K HDR TVs, headphones, wireless chargers, Echo dots, smartphones, and more.
What should you buy?
We're showing you shopping suggestions but my advice is to look for what you actually want. With back-to-school shopping being next on your list – yep, I said it and no, I can't believe it's already upon us – look for headphones (on most school supply lists), charging cables, and if you're looking to upgrade your student's laptop or tablet, this is the time to look.

Do I have to shop at Amazon to get the best Prime Day deals?
Nope. The competition will be trying to woo you you away from Amazon. Look for deals from Target, Walmart, and your other favorite retailers. You might have to put on pants and go outside to retrieve your bounty but definitely shop around to see if you can get a better deal than Amazon offers.
What am I buying on Prime Day?
I'm not sure. I've got a few more trips planned this year and I'd like to upgrade my some of my camera equipment, although I'm deal-selective. I'm also working off of a two-year-old laptop that's working fine but I'm always looking to see if there's a “can't pass it up” upgrade.
I'm also looking to streamline our travel packing, so I'm looking for backpacks and carry on luggage that are light, rugged, and priced right.
Entertainment on Prime Day
One of the biggest perks of Amazon Prime membership for us has been the entertainment options. Check this out these:
Limb Difference Merch on Prime Day
We've bought a few things lately that have helped our limb different son, Zack, adapt to everyday life a little better. I'm not sure how righteous the Prime Day deals will be on these but I'm including them because they're products that I think are pretty amazing.
These EazyHold silicone strips have been a game changer for us. They allow Zack to use a fork with his little hand and use his sound hand to use a knife. These are really nifty, although they are ridiculously pricey, so if you get these, safeguard them to make sure you don't lose them.
Zack also sometimes uses a pizza cutter in place of a knife. It's a lot easier for him to manage, although since he's gotten the EazyHold, he usually uses those. Still, this is a good option for cutting food when you have a limb difference.
If you need adaptive clothing, check out the Tommy Hilfiger Adaptive Clothing Line. If your child has trouble with buttons – Zack can do it but he struggles – this is a great line to check out. The BEST part? Their adaptive clothing matches the rest of Tommy Hilfiger's line. It is pricey, though, so I'm hoping for some Prime Day deals.
