From October 10 through 11, Amazon is holding their annual shopping-and-saving extravaganza. Days like this are usually about scoring unbeatable deals, and we’d be lying if we didn’t admit that part of the fun is buying things you may not really need, but that sure would be fun to have. Keep in mind, you have to be a Prime member (or you can try Amazon Prime’s 30-day free trial during the sale!) to take advantage of all the deals. Here are eight things we’ll be adding to our baskets.
