                                             Heres my list of top ten items on amazon!!

1. Toilet paper. 
Amazon consistently offers great prices on toilet paper, just about every single day. While these savings may not be quite as good as shopping at your local grocery store with a coupon (although often they win!), they are frequently less than Sam’s or Costco, plus you get the convenience of having them delivered to your door. To make sure you’re getting the price, scan the “$.xx/count” on this page for the lowest price per count and check for any extra coupons they’re offering.

2. Diapers, Swim Diapers & Pull Ups
Amazon’s prices on diapers are so good, unless you get a crazy fun deal at the drug stores using coupons. However, I’ve often calculated Amazon’s price per diaper and found them to beat even prices at local stores after coupons, so it’s definitely worth watching for their sales! To find the best price, do the math to find the lowest price per diaper on size 1 diapers HERE, and know that your price will go up per size.

(Typically I aim to find a deal priced around 10¢ per Size 1 diaper for Luvs, or 12¢ per diaper for Huggies or Pampers, after coupons and Amazon’s subscribe and save program.) 

3. Baby Wipes.
Occasionally local grocery stores offer a great price on smaller packed wipes after a high value coupon, but typically you can find baby wipes on Amazon from 1¢ to 2¢ per wipe after you subscribe and save (and clip whatever coupons they have available.) If you have babies or small children and go through large quantities of baby wipes, this is a great (easy!) way to save!

(Note: On Amazon subscribe and save items you’ll need to subscribe to shipment for an item, but can cancel your subscription once your order arrives in the subscription section of your Amazon account. I usually set mine to ship 6 months apart so I have plenty of time to cancel an order if I need to!)

4. Books.
Amazon has fantastic prices on most books just about every day, and if you don’t mind buying used you can save a bundle on those as well! Be sure to note shipping prices on used books though as those sometimes negate the savings on the book themselves ~ go HERE to search Amazon’s extensive book selection.
5. Blu Rays & DVDs.
There are hundreds of deals every day on DVDs and Blu Rays at Amazon, and you can find a huge selection available for less than $5! .

4. Make Up
If you wear department store makeup (Estee Lauder, Clinique, Lancome, etc), and an item you need is not in “gift” at your local store (where they offer a special free gift when purchasing), Amazon is a great way to easily get your makeup. I order my Estee Lauder from them just about all the time (my one big splurge!), mostly because it saves me a trip to the mall and it’s just convenient.

5. Drug store brand makeup on sale with coupons.
Amazon has a huge selection of makeup that goes on sale pretty heftily every month with their special coupons. Right now there’s a $1 off Cover Girl Makeup coupon, valid on eye shadow, mascara, blush and more, and when you add that to the subscribe and save discounts you can get them for as low as $1.35, delivered to your door. I usually can’t beat those savings even with coupons, so this is a great convenient way for me to save without leaving my house!

6. Personal care items.
 they regularly have digital coupons on shampoo, conditioner, feminine care products, body wash and more. By watching for those savings I’ve gotten them on sale for substantially less than I would pay at Walmart, and of course love that they bring them to my door! (For an idea of the savings you can see on these, go HERE and HERE. They don’t happen all the time, but if you subscribe to PPP daily emails I’ll be sure to alert you when I see these savings.)

7. cleaning products.
There are dozens of items that Amazon offers high value coupons on each month, which offer some great savings (and prices just about always less than Sam’s or Costco – so you don’t need a membership!) Here are a few of my favorite deals that come up fairly regularly on Amazon . . .

8. Toys & games.
There are typically great deals on Amazon on toys and games, but it’s worth taking a few minutes to do some research before ordering

9. Gift cards.
Amazon offers special Lightning Gift Card deals regularly, which typically will save $5-$10 off a $50 gift card. 
10. Pet toys (not pet food.)
I have consistently found great prices on pet toys at Amazon, compared to the crazy high price you’ll often see at specialty pet stores. I haven’t seen decent savings on pet food, but if you’re looking for just toys you can save a bundle. (Our dog’s favorite is this one – he’s loved it)!
