Rise and Shine July 6 – Did you feel the earthquake? Sushi Go game, Crocs sale, GAP 40% off sale, Stanley tool set, 30% off Disney favorites, more

Rise and Shine is my way of starting the day with you – almost as if we’re chatting over a hot cup of coffee or tea! I share my favorite deals of the day, highlights from yesterday, and anything else that might help you save time, money or energy. Published in the morning on Monday through Friday  – as I’m able. 

Good morning! How’s your day going? We slept in and are taking it easy this morning. We had a fun day yesterday exploring Glacier National Park. Yesterday afternoon we took a boat tour on Lake McDonald and hung out in Apgar Village. Last night we went for a drive at dusk to see if we could spot animals but didn’t have any luck – beautiful views, though!

Did you feel the earthquake last night?  I woke up to our travel trailer shaking and my first thought was it was a bear! What else would make our whole trailer shake? An earthquake in Montana didn’t seem probable – but after looking on Twitter/Facebook and I found lots of other people felt the quake too. It’s a trip when you’re in a travel trailer!

This morning we played a few rounds of Sushi Go – have you played it? Our cousins brought it camping and it’s been so much fun to play that I ordered it from Amazon this morning so we can continue playing at home! What are some of your favorite family-friendly games to play?

Amazon Prime Day is quickly approaching on Tuesday, July 11, 2017!  And Amazon has announced that Prime Day deals will start on Monday, July 10th at 9pm ET.  There will be deals happening all over Amazon, but you can find most of the top Prime Day deals here and know that we are working hard to find you the very BEST deals possible.  We will be making individual posts, but you can do a little digging yourself on the Amazon Prime Day Deal page.

Keep in mind, these deals are ONLY available to Amazon Prime members .  If you don’t currently have a Prime Membership, sign up for a FREE 30-day Amazon Prime FREE trial today and get all the perks of a membership (including Prime Day Deals).  At the end of the trial you can cancel or continue your Prime membership for $10.99/month or $99/year. I’ve been a Prime member for many, many years and I always feel like it pays for itself. The free shipping alone is great but I love the exclusive coupons, special sales, photo storage, Prime video streaming and more.
