    Bought a few things I’ve had my eye on for awhile that we were going to buy anyway—you can kind of predict what will be on sale and there are often repeats.

    Lunchboxes for the kids—yumbox and bentgo. These are awesome. We didn’t use a single plastic baggie last year and the kids do a better job of eating out of them at school.

    Mom jeans 😉 (It is what it is)

    It worked.
    Because of the talk I went to look and saw a deal I could not pass up. 2 kids fire tablets for $100. As a parent of twins I always appreciate two packs.
    I have been keeping an eye on these and it usually is $100 for one and sometimes they go on sale for $150 for the two packs.
    So I feel I got a good deal. My kids will be happy and Amazon was successful in getting me to spend money I didn’t need to.

    @lordosis,
    Oh no. You needed it. Really bad. Anything for the twins.
    Dad, is it our BIRTHDAY?
    No, it’s PRIME DAY!
    Such a teachable moment! (good deal).

    Seriously my wife and I had this conversation yesterday.  We do not like giving gifts for no good reason.  Hard to say that without sounding like a cheapo doc who does not want to buy his kid a toy.

    Just because the package will arrive in 2 days does not mean they will get it.  I am in favor for waiting until xmas but my wife wants to compromise and make it a gift when my oldest starts school.    Not really sure why you need a gift when your brother starts school but it is a better reason then it was prime day.

    Yeah, it’s July
    •Sunday
    Nat’l. Ice Cream Day
    •Saturday
    Colombian Indep. Day
    Nat’l. Moon Day

    “School starts” is usually not considered a holiday! Try to be creative. Ice cream is popular in the summer.
    A learning tool in the hand is worth more than 2 in the closet! Rationalize if you must. We always found presents in the closet or under the bed!
