Here are a few highlights from our Facebook discussion:

above ground pool

Lisa is enjoying this new pool addition to her backyard.

A new above-ground pool and pool floats. I’m a teacher, so this is my summer fun! – Lisa

Best thing we ever did was add a pool. We love it and it adds so much fun to our family! – Marie

Same and was thinking today – I need to go buy a big umbrella for the pool 😂 My husband will be thrilled. LOL – Heather

My Sam’s Club had that $35 family pool in stock, even though the website says no availability! I’m excited. – Jessica

AC unit outside home

Caitlin is staying cool with a new AC unit.

It’s currently 110º outside. – Caitlin

I did the same last night. 🙁Kelly

I am replacing one too. – Marlene

holding a blue bento box

Amanda is getting ready for back to school with new bento lunch boxes.

Honestly, these are so exciting! I know they’re simply to-go containers. But my soon-to-be kindergartener is excited about her lunch in these!! – Amanda

OK, I just bought these in the bright colors and it made me ridiculously happier than it should have, to have my lunch items in separate quadrants. I’m just rolling with it. Oh, my kids like them too, I guess! 🤣 Jessica

Those look like they are perfect for people who don’t like their food to touch. – Natalie

hair in a French twist

Aubrey achieved this look with Goody Spin Pins.

My hair is an inch or two past my shoulders. Look up instructions for a French twist – I learned it from a Klutz book ages ago! The pins also work amazingly well for plain buns. They’re so comfy! – Aubrey

I love the spin pins! – Jennifer

Thanks – just ordered some! – Sandy

woman grooming dog

Carol is going to try DIY pet grooming with her new Neabot.

I bought this during Prime Day on a lightning deal. I also got a pet dryer the same day. I used to groom my Scottish terrier 4 years ago and now I’m going to groom my 2 doodles myself. This has amazing reviews from a group on FB, so we will see! – Carol

It will be your best purchase ever for your pets!! I use it on my German Shepard & lab … best thing I have ever bought! – Shannon

I bought this recently and LOVE it for my very furry schnauzer/poodle mix. So easy to use and ZERO MESS!!! It’s magical. – Robin

I’m getting one for my Australian Shepherd/Bichon Frise. He’s ready for his first cut! – Mike

speaker on wall of shower

Kathy is loving her new SoundBot Bluetooth shower speaker.

This was a great buy on Amazon and it sounds SO GOOD!!! – Kathy

I have one for true crime in the shower. So relaxing. 😂 Lydia

dog wearing Thundershirt

Susan’s chihuahua is enjoying the calming effects of a new Thundershirt.

For our poor lil’ chihuahua who is scared of the thunder we’ve been getting! Hope it works. – Susan

This works great for our chi! – Christine

You can also find Burts Bees Lavender Spray for pets and spray the Thundershirt patches. Lavender is supposed to be soothing 💜 – Deana

bikes hanging from garage ceiling

For less than $50, Jessica scored 4 of these genius bike hoists.

It’s arriving tomorrow, but I got a 4 pack of bike pulleys so my kids’ bikes can hang above my car instead of blocking me from parking in the garage! I’m so excited!! – Jessica

You’re going to love them! Such a great space saver. – Jennifer

using a UV light to dry gel nails

Angie is using her new poly nail kit for DIY gel manicures at home.

I bought a poly gel nail kit so I can do my own nails at home, even though I’m not good at it yet. The kit comes with everything you will need. Something which might help is an electric nail file to help with keeping the cuticle flush under the nails. They sell them on Amazon for $13. I think my nails looks okay right now but I’m still trying to make them so they are not so thick. 😂 – Angie

stacks of Amazon boxes

Finally, if your Prime Day hangover looks like this, you’re in good company!

This is what my house is looking like right now from Prime Day – sporting goods for the start of football season, back to school, and basic sales. – Ari

OMG girl, you’re grabbing those deals! I have to show this to my partner. He thinks I shop a lot 🤣🤣🤣Barb


I bought so many things… thank you to Prime Day and Target. And an online shopping addiction 😂Amanda

Prime Day can’t be beat when you need to buy a lot! We have apartment complexes so lots to buy to keep places nice! – Jill

    Thank you for these posts and the ones for what your team is buying. I find great ideas for gifts, for hard to buy people. Also, things I never knew I needed! It always helps when real people comment

    • Collin (Mrs. Hip)

      Yay! You’re so very welcome! Super glad these have been helpful! 💞🤗

  2. A.B.

    I’m hopeful I can reign my curls in with some of the spiral hair pins! My hair is very fine, and shoulder length, so a ponytail just seems to fall out. This humidity is killing me, and I need a plan! 😝 Does anyone know how solidly they stay put when exercising? Thanks in advance! 💕

    • CJ

      Same here…I had never heard of them until this post! I also have fine hair slightly longer than shoulder length and was wondering how they work. Amazon has 10 for $4.99 but the reviews show they have bumps/notches that snag hair so I think I’ll go with a reputable brand. Hope they work for us both! 👍👱‍♀️
