I hate Prime Day on principle. I’ve always hated Black Friday too. I consider the sale items to be loss leaders get customers in the store where they will buy more. Amazon’s store is online but it’s the same principle, and I don’t like being manipulated. The hype grates on my nerves too. This is all just my personal reaction, other people love it and I say go for it if it’s your thing. But it’s not mine.
And yet…I’m so cheap I bought stuff. Pretty much all essential stuff:
- Underwear. Commando is not my thing Every time I do laundry, I basically have to do a spell that beseeches the elastic to last through another washing. I’d reached the point where I either needed a new spell or new underwear. I couldn’t find any spells on sale on Prime Day
- Scissors. I can’t stress how badly I needed those. My butter knives cut better than the scissors in my kitchen. I got two pairs! That’s a win since I suspect Wizard will snag one pair for his garage. See how thoughtful I am? Wizard really is a lucky man
- Bike shorts for working out. I’m down to one pair that is getting so droopy, it’s embarrassing. So I snagged a new pair. I should have bought 2, but… CHEAPSKATE!
- And I bought a workout top. A short one hoping it won’t get in my way even if a little bit of my “age rolls” (fat! Sheesh just call it what it is) spills out. I won’t care as long as I don’t do something scary like walk in front of a mirror. Note: I did not buy any mirrors on Prime Day!
And that was my big spending Prime Day. I still think Prime Day is an overhyped gimmick that gets people to buy more than they need, but I’m also one of those people, LOL.
How about you?
