INSIDE : Check out all of my very Favorite Amazon purchases from last year! This is the REAL LIFE favorite items I bought in Home Decor, Cleaning Items, Fashion, Kids’s Books + Toys.
About a month ago, I saw someone do a post on their favorite Amazon purchases from last year and I don’t know why but I found it SO fascinating and helpful. It wasn’t a list of just the fun fluffy “summer tees” they love but only own maybe one of. It was a list of their REAL LIFE favorite Amazon purchases.

I immediately went to my Amazon orders and clicked on 2018 and thought I LOVED some of these things… I wonder if other people would be interested in seeing what I bought for my family last year.
So here we go. Most of the items were things for kid’s birthdays, Christmas, etc… so although I don’t typically do a ton of kid related things on the blog today’s post will have a heavy kid section.
We have Amazon Prime and clearly do most shopping this way, don’t judge the length of this list – this was the best from the entire year!
FAVORITE HOME DECOR ITEMS:
8″ Disco Ball – I LOVE having this catch the morning sunlight!
Blue + White Buffalo Check cloth napkins – Ah, these are such fun to use.
