Rise and Shine 12/18 – Amazon One-Day shipping sale, Kindle coupon, NW getaways

Good morning!

We have snow on the ground this morning in Olympia, Washington! There is something about snow that makes things a little magical. Hoping to get out and play in it a little today. Hoping our chickens are okay, it looks cold! If you’re headed out – drive carefully.

One week until Christmas. Are you ready? Are you taking the time to soak this in? It’s going to be over before you know it so decide what is really important and what you can take off the list – and try and enjoy this time of year. If you’re worried about gifts, you have until noon PST Wednesday (12/19) to place an Amazon order for guaranteed Christmas delivery with Super Saver shipping.

And if you’re still worried, check out the Amazon One Day Shopping Sale and all the items that are part of that sale will ship with FREE expedited shipping! I haven’t had a chance to look around, but you can see all the qualifying items here. Make sure and select One-Day Shipping before completing an order and the discount comes off at checkout!

The toy deals on Amazon have been HOT, but they move fast. I updated the toy list three times yesterday and even ended the night by adding new discounts. I will update this morning after I get the best deals of the day posted.

Amazon Moms can still save on the Kindle! Use code FIREMOMS at checkout to save on other Kindles:
