    So far, I haven't seen anything click-worthy.

    I've never been impressed with Amazon's black Friday deals. So far, I'm not impressed with Prime Day, either.

    Me neither. I was really hoping for a new laptop but I have a lot of requirements. Their selection of laptops is very low quality. I'm very disappointed. I also saw a pair of New Balance sneakers, super cute for only $45. Except when I chose my size, every color was $75! Such a shame...I was hoping for better.

    Any of the little things I was hoping to find are not there. No K-cups, no board games... Mostly toys and jewelry, neither of which I buy except at Christmas...

    I always have a hard time just randomly shopping on Amazon. When I need something specific I can usually find it, but just browsing I have a hard time.

    I've not found anything. I don't have a huge list at this point though, but it'd be nice if I saw at least one thing that made my toes tingle!

    Nope...I was pretty disappointed! I was going to get the fire stick for $24 but it didn't go on sale right away. I checked back tons of times and it was still regular price. It must have gone on sale while I was out this morning, because when I got home and checked again it was sold out at the sale price. I wasn't really interested in any of the other deals. Like KC said, I only use amazon to find something specific I can't find easily in a regular store. I don't just browse/shop randomly there.

    I find it difficult to browse.

    I sorted by the couple of categories that interested me. Nothing screamed, "buy me!"

    I just bought things from my wish list but only one thing was slashed 50%. I got some fair prices but nothing different than any other day.

    I was trying to do some early Christmas shopping for my niece. Every time I found a toy, I clicked instantly, and it was sold out. Waitlists were filling in under 30 seconds! I've been having wi-fi problems all day, so that wasn't helping.

    I did purchase two things. First, very unexciting, toilet paper. I saw earlier today that I only had a few rolls left and added it to my grocery list. Then it came up as a deal at the same price I got it on sale for last time. I figured, hey, why not. I'm guaranteed a good price and now I don't have to haul the it up to my top-floor apartment. (Not that TP is heavy, but it can be rather bulky.)

    Secondly, I ordered a light jacket for my niece. It was too cute to pass up. Regular $56 and I got it for $24.99.

    I actually got on there to buy a nice messenger bag for the year. I didn't even know it was prime day today. Didn't find anything, but signed up for the free trial of Prime just for the free 2 day shipping.

    I know I'm probably behind on this, but I really really want an Amazon Echo now. I just watched the video. I'd be like Tony Stark or Back to the Future!

    I picked up a $200.00 remote start for my car for $50.00. Bring on winter!
