For those of you who order often from Amazon I highly recommend getting Amazon Prime. I ABSOLUTELY LOVE my Amazon Prime. I don’t know what I’d do without it, because I’m such a last-minute person that sometimes I need that 2-day shipping pretty badly :)

*Amazon Prime includes unlimited Free Two-Day Shipping, with no minimum order size, on more than 15 million items.

This alone is worth the cost to me. I want to be able to grab great deals quickly, without browsing around trying to pad my order to reach $35. Plus, sometimes it’s just plain cheaper than the gas it would take to drive to the nearest Toys R Us or Best Buy, etc… (which are 30 minutes away)
