What I'm Priming December

Hello friends and happy New Year!! I hope you spent the weekend surrounded by people you love and are starting 2023 off with a full heart.

Tanya has brought back Prime Purchases in 2023 and this year it will be on Mondays-- woohoo! As someone who only blogs on Mondays and Fridays, thank you Tanya!!! 

Here's a look at what I bought in December:

Collapsible Laundry Basket-- One of the handles on our old laundry baskets broke so we needed a new one. The reviews on this one were high so I gave it a shot. I really like the size-- it's perfect for when I'm walking around the house picking up items to move to another room. It's smaller and lighter so it doesn't get too heavy. I also love the height for pulling the clothes out of the dryer, they just fall right into it. 

Car Cleaning Gel-- I saw this on TikTok a couple weeks ago and knew this would be a game changer for cleaning out my car. I get very annoyed by those little pieces of dust/crumbs that get stuck in the tiny little nooks and crannies of the car. This gel works to get those out. 

Air Filters-- I usually grab these from Walmart whenever I'm there, but the past few times they haven't had the size we needed. It was just easier to get them from Amazon. 

Nature Meditations-- I grabbed a pack of these from a boutique in Colorado for a friend, but looked through them before I gave them to her... I really liked them so I grabbed myself a pack too. If you are hoping to incorporate some more mindfulness/meditations into your routine in 2023, I'd recommend these!
Rechargeable Batteries-- Liam got a Hot Wheels race track for Christmas that uses batteries, and he has had that thing going for hours a day. I know we are about to start going through batteries like crazy so I grabbed these rechargeable ones to use in his race track. 

Today I am linking up with Tanya for Prime Purchases. Have a great day!


  1. Great idea for a laundry basket! That car cleaning gel thingy looks neat too. Isn't it amazing the things we can learn about on TikTok?

  2. I love the idea of a collapsilble laundry basket. My family went to the tall stand up hamper/baskets when my kids were in high school and I love them. When someone had a full one, they knew to do their own laundry. I could never carry the traditional horizontal size through the house and these vertical ones are so much easier. But, I can still see the need for one like yours. I think they are great for packing for trips and for keeping in the back of your car to corral things, too!

  3. I got the car gel for stockings this year for my parents. I can’t wait to hear what they think. Rechargeable batteries are smart! Those hot wheels tracks can cook through batteries! Sarah @ Sunshine & Books

  4. I have the Nature Meditations but haven't used them - I should!

  5. I bought the car gel too and hoping it works well!

  6. Oh! I've never heard of/seen the car gel. Sounds genius!

  7. The car gel looks interesting. It would make a great little stocking stuffer or add-on gift too. Thanks so much for linking up with Prime Purchases! Tanya - The Other Side of the Road

  8. I have seen the gel but been hesitant to try it. My van needs a good cleaning.

  9. I've always wondered about those car cleaning gel things! Seems like a great concept!
