It’s been a week since I’ve posted, and it’s been a looooong crazy week! It started off with a trip to the ER (everyone is ok). Then everyone in the family got sick all at the same time with a high fever cold/flu bug. John and I got better in a couple of days. Then the week ended with a visit to the doctor to find out Caleb has an ear infection and Sofia has pneumonia. I am so happy last week is over and I’m starting a new week.
I normally do most of my shopping online. With me being stuck inside all of last week, I really learned just how much I love shopping online. Especially on Amazon! They make shopping so easy and convenient and they always have the lowest price!!! Even if their price is the same, you don’t pay tax so it’s actually cheaper. I don’t have to leave the house and it’s delivered to me in 2 days. Seriously amazing!!
So why do they have the lowest prices and why do the prices fluctuate? After one phone call to them I found out all the answers. They have thousands of retails, stores and individuals they get their products from. With the volume of inventory they sell, it demands a competitive price. Then they always sell the lowest price first.
For example- Say they have 500 rolls of paper towels. They got 100 rolls at $0.89, another 100 rolls at $0.99, another 100 at $1.09 and so on. They will sell the $0.89 ones first, then move to the $0.99 ones. That’s why you will see things that say “only 2 left”. This is also why the prices can fluctuate up and down from day to day, some times from hour to hour.

What can you buy on Amazon? Everything!!!! I get everything from beauty products, vitamins and supplements, electronics, shoes, everyday household items, toys, etc. If I’m buying anything online I go to Amazon first to see if they have it before shopping anywhere else. Let’s do a few side by side comparisons.
