Like most people, I buy a lot of crap on Amazon. Some things are everyday things that are more convenient to order, because I don’t have a car. Other things, I buy because I have no idea where else I could get these things. And some things, I buy and ask myself later, why did I buy that??
Anyway, here are the last 15 things that I bought on Amazon, because I personally am snoopy and like to see what other people buy.
So these are actually pretty cool. At night, after you wash your face, put these stickers on your zit and go to sleep. I like to put my serums and moisturizer after I put this on. Overnight while you sleep, these suckers suck the gunk out of your pimple making them smaller the next morning. And, my favorite part, you can see the pus in the sticker, which is actually more satisfying than watching Dr. Pimple Popper.
First of all, I love this rice. This is the go-to rice of almost all of my asian friends. My grandma and mom buy this rice. And it is pre-washed so you don’t have to, which is saves Mother Earth’s water because it is more efficient for Nishiki to wash than for us to do it individually. I also don’t have a car, and the nearest Asian market is far from me. I don’t know how I would be able to get a 15 lb bag of rice without Amazon, because I am obviously not going to be carrying it on the train.
This mascara is from a Korean brand, Touch in SOL. They used to have it at Sephora, but now they don’t sell it anymore. Wahhhh! (Jk, it was like $20 at Sephora). I really like this mascara, and considering that it is cheaper than most other mascaras at Sephora, I just order this. My sad lashes go straight down, and holding a curl is pretty tough. This is actually my most recent favorite (more than L’oreal Lash Paradise and CoverGirl Super Sizer… I know). But I think this is better when it gets dryer inside, like about a month or two old.
Emergen-C does not protect me from the flu, because nothing, not even the flu shot, protects you from the flu. It does however protect me from colds that I used to get when the weather in Chicago fluctuates like crazy, which is all the time. (55 one day and 26 the next. WTF!) I like the Pink Lemonade Emergen-C, which my grocery store doesn’t have. And my grocery store sells it for $13ish. Amazon sells this for $10. Saving money, better flavor, AND right to my doorstep. Uhhh Yea.
This is the only way I remember to take my vitamins, because they are candy. I rarely forget to take these, whereas I will always forget to take normal vitamins. The serving size is 2 gummies. Do I sometimes eat 4? Maybe.
I couldn’t find the blue glasses that I bought, but the price point was about the same. Blue light from your computer or phone makes it harder for you to fall asleep. So I wear them in the late afternoons or evenings, and sometimes in the mornings (and all day), because they are easier on the eyes. Especially since I look at a computer for 8+ hours a day. And then like look at my phone for a bajillion hours after that.
I kept two for myself and gave the other two away. I wanted a long one and a short one. These work well and were very affordable.
My friend who is really on top of his game it’s not even funny recommended (almost pushed) this book to me. He told me that a) the author is a billionaire, and b) this book changed his life. Ok fine, so I bought it. It is well organized into different sections. I have finished the first section which was about his life. This guy is smart, but sometimes I felt he was a liiiitle arrogant. I mean, I guess he is super duper successful so he has a right to be, but I don’t get that feeling about Oprah. I’ve just started the second portion, which is about his principles. And I like this section more, because this is where the fundamentals come in. I’m not even half way and I have a ton of sticky tabs in my book to refer back to.
I like Glad kitchen trash bags, but I usually order whatever’s cheapest at the time. I could easily buy trash bags at the grocery store, but like I said I don’t have a car. I take two reusable grocery bags with me shopping every week and that is it. If I buy trash bags, that will take up like half a bag, and that means 25% less food for the week. So, I buy it on Amazon. The OdorShield is also a nice touch.
I was using my old school crappy keyboard and decided that it is time to grow up to something better. And this is way better. Interesting tho, I’ve discovered that my right hand reaches over to try and type keys that are supposed to be typed by the left hand. This used to work with my old crappy keyboard and my laptop (like right now), but when I used this, the keyboard is like Nope, go learn how to type.
This is legit. I mean, $30 is expensive for a freaking neck pillow. However, when I used to use my old U-shaped pillow, my head would just go forward, and not use the sides at all. When I would wake up, I would always have neck pain (which is like stupid because what’s the point of a neck pillow if my head just goes forward). I have used Trtl Pillow on a redeye flight in the middle seat, and it was still awesome. In fact, I bought two more as gifts for family members.
I wanted a set of headphones for my gymbag, my work backpack, in the house, and on the go. This was a two pack and gets the job done for only $11.
I don’t even know where to buy this. This is the lint trap for my washing machine so all the lint from my clothes don’t clog up the drain, and it works well. And it is affordable. Or at least I think it is, because I don’t know how much they are outside of Amazon.
I wear this beanie almost everyday when I go outside in the frigid cold of Chicago winter. It looks good and my ears and head are kept toasty. I can’t believe this is under $10. I think I will order another one in grey.
My laptop case was getting kind of old so it was time to buy a new one. I liked that this one had handles, and has an area with lots of different compartments to put my charger, headphones, etc. I also bought it because the foam diamond patterns would protect my computer from my clumsy ass.
