Since coming up with the idea for this Website, I’ve thought long and hard about what my first “hack” would be. Now, for the intents and purposes of this website, I’m using the term “hack” as in the cool, geeky way to take apart code in order to make something better vs the negative connotation of hack to either a) take apart code to break something or b) like a doctor who gives out fake medicine. So, as we continue, just think of me as cool and geeky vs malicious and deceitful. Actually, forget I mentioned any of that.
So anyway, my first Mom Hack for this website is….Amazon Mom. Now, you’d have to be living under a rock to not have heard about Amazon. Drones? Jeff Bezos? No? How about free 2-day shipping?! Prices lower than Target most times? Order from your computer?
Amazon Mom is THE BEST. Seriously. In fact, I seriously don’t know if I would have survived the first year of each of the girls’ lives without being able to order diapers last minute, never mind the dark chocolate for my sanity or shampoo, if I ever got a chance to shower.
If you’ve never tried Amazon Mom, you get a 20% discount right off of their list price for most anything kid-related. A lot of things mom-related too. In addition to that, you get access to Amazon Instant movies, music, etc. It’s pretty amazing. Finally, the best part – free 2-day shipping. There’s usually an option to get things next day as well for $3.99 per item. I’ve used that quite often after I realized I pulled the last diaper from the box 3 hours ago. AH.MAZE.ING.
At $99, it can be kind of pricey. However, with the discounts on merchandise and the 2-Day shipping, I figured that I’ve saved at least 3 times that already this year and it’s only July!
They do offer a 30-day trial so if you’d like to try it, click here: Amazon Mom Free Trial
*Full disclosure: I wasn’t paid by Amazon for this post, just offering my honest review. However, if use that code to sign up I do make a “commission” by being an Amazon Mom referrer. If you have any questions about it, feel free to send me an e-mail!
