October 10, 2022


Team LIY

It’s that time of the month again….noooo, not that one πŸ˜‚ the one where the LIY Team is sharing our Amazon purchases from the month that we think you NEED to know about! Have we gotten a look or two from the neighbors when another package arrives? Sure. But heyyy, it’s all worth it and part of the hard hitting research we do here to let you know which items are worth hitting checkout on and which are worth deleting from cart! πŸ›’

By the wayyyyy another Prime Day is coming TOMORROW (October 12th and 13th) so follow along here, on our Facebook page, and Amazon Finds & Fails Facebook group for all of the hottest deals!

Step right up for our favorite Amazon purchases this month….


Erin’s Plaid Shacket

Shacket [true to size, wearing in small in B Blue] // Tank [true to size, wearing in small] // Jeans [size down if in between, wearing in 2] // Sneakers [true to size]

Shacket season is officially here and I am here for it. Bring on the cozy layers and days outside. I just picked this one up and it is a good option under $40! The buttons do make a little bit of a jingle when you are operating them but it didn’t bother me! Bring on the Caramel Apple Spices!

Katy’s Pullover Sweater

Sweater [true to size] // Zella Maternity Leggings [true to size] // Sneakers [size down .5] // Waterproof Booties [true to size]

Another big winner from Amazon in the sweater department! I love the elevated detail of the quarter zip on this one πŸ˜ Wearing here in the color Rust and I am 5’4″ for reference!

Claire’s Cardigan Sweater

Cardigan [TTS, wearing medium] // Similar Denim [TTS] // Sneakers

Claire’s Puffer Coat

Coat [size up if in between, wearing large] // Sweatshirt [TTS] // Leggings [TTS] // Sneakers [size down .5 if in between]

Claire’s Pullover Sweater

Sweater [TTS, wearing medium] // Leggings [TTS] // Sneakers [size down .5 if in between]

Claire’s Clear Stadium Purse

Clear Stadium Bag

Lauren’s Bag Strap

Bag Strap // Black Tory Burch Bag

Fun bag straps are all the rage right now [do people still say that? idk, either way…] and I spotted this one and immediately popped it on my Tory Burch bag when it came in! I love what it adds to my otherwise neutral look!

Macy’s Children’s Pajamas

Toddler Pajamas

Baby Pajamas

Does anyone else put off buying their kids jammies because who wants to spend money on pajamas that won’t last very long anyway? While I’d like to deny it, the fact is my babies are growing like crazy and desperately needed new pajamas. These brands had several color options to choose from and both were true to size.

Skye’s Workwear

Button Down [sized up] // Pants [true to size] // Heels [true to size]

I have a simple workwear look to share today! I have held off on this style of pant because I have never been convinced they’d work on my body type, but I decided to give these a go just to see, and I’m happy to report that they are very flattering! I find them to be true to size, I am wearing them in a L for size 12!

I paired it with this very simple white button down that is a great find for $20. I had to size up to fit my chest correctly so I am wearing an XL here!

Lisa’s Loungewear

Sweater [size up if in between] // Tank [size up if in between] // Leggings [TTS]

Lisa here with my go-to football lounging attire for this season. I have at least four pair of these leggings and they are my absolute softest pairs I own. The tank I have two colors in and love the cut and fit of it! This sweater is new to my collection this season and I did buy true to size (small) although I do wish I would have sized up for a little more comfort and room. To be honest, the sweater seems a little β€œstiff” but I am hoping with wear and wash it will soften up because I truly love the details of it. Here’s to sweaters, kick-offs, and fantasy football leagues! πŸˆ

Sthefany’s Handbag

Handbag [White/Coffee]

How cute is this Amazon handbag? I was on the hunt for an affordable, trendy bag for this fall and once again, Amazon killed it. 

Allison’s Dress

Dress [true to size]

College football season is here, and in Northern Indiana, Notre Dame tailgating is a Saturday staple! I found this cute shamrock dress on Amazon, and thought it would be perfect for the hot Saturday tailgates in September. I did wear a green tank underneath due to the fact that the top wasn’t wide enough to cover my bra. The length was perfect for my 6 foot frame, and the pockets were a major bonus! Let’s go Irish! πŸ€

Heather’s Workout Outfit

Tank [7 different colors, tts] // Leggings [tts] // Sneakers [tts]

Heather here with another TALL girl Lululemon “save” find for you from Amazon! These 31″ Inseam leggings are great for my 6 foot frame and are a save version of the Lululemon Align! This Amazon top is my new go to for yoga and Peloton rides and also a great save version of the Lululemon Align Tank Top.

P.S. If you’re on the hunt for a pair of great sneakers go for a pair of On! I plan to snag a new pair for our upcoming Disney trip!


Katy’s Pantry Organization Baskets

Wicker Baskets

WOWIE nothing like a little home organization to help you feel like you have your life together (a little) more πŸ€£ With our pantry being exposed I wanted something that was pretty yet functional and these baskets did just the trick!

Lisa’s Battery Operated Candles

Battery Operated Candles

My mantle area is decorated with different lanterns that I have purchased while on vacation or finding unique ones on sale. I was always skeptical with battery operated candles as I have had some bad luck in the past. But these are great! They come on every day at 5 PM and automatically turn off at 10 PM. Easy Peasy! There are several different settings so you can find what is perfect for your mood and home decor.

Lauren’s Fireplace Log Rack

Fireplace Log Rack

Slowly but surely, we’re overhauling our basement with a major remodel, and that includes the fireplace area! We needed a place to store our wood, and loved the height and modern appeal of this log rack! Bring on fall and winter fires!

Macy’s Gold Dresser Knobs

Gold Dresser Knobs

These gold knobs were a simple, easy change from the silver ones I had before and I love them so much. They go perfectly in my daughters nursery with all the other gold accents.

Macy’s Bath Toy Storage

Bath Toy Storage

Lately it seems our collection of bath toys keeps growing and growing and my bathroom feels smaller and smaller. We finally have some organized chaos in the bathroom thanks to this bath cubby.


Erin’s Hair Ties

GIMME Hair Ties

These things are the best – end of story. Hannah on the team got me hooked on them and now I never want to use another hair tie again! They don’t pull on your hair [they are similar to a panty hose feel] and hold your hair nice and tightly! Love them!

Katy’s Lip Balm

Biossance Squalane + Rose Vegan Lip Balm

Obsessed πŸ˜ My lips seriously feel so good using this balm and I love that this brand uses natural ingredients!

Claire’s Lip Mask

Vanilla Lip Mask

Random Amazon Finds

Erin’s The Perfect Pizza Pack

Pizza Pack

Shark Tank got me again. When I saw this product for storing leftover pizza on their recent airing I ordered immediately. It collapses and expands to fit 1-5 pieces with individual microwavable trays to separate in between, so you can either heat up one slice at a time or put the entire pack in and heat up all slices at once. I love it mostly because it allows me to not have to fit a giant box in the fridge! A fun gift idea to give to any pizza lover in your life!

Claire’s Kindle Book

Pre-Order Now! [Available October 18th!]

Lauren’s Magnetic Hat Clip [similar]

Magnetic Hat Clip [mine is sold out, but several others available here, here, and here on Amazon, or here at Nordstrom]

Raise your hand if you love to take a beach hat along for warm-weather trips, but wonder how the heck do you pack it?! I gotchu, boo. This magnetic hat clip [similar linked] clips right onto your carryon bag or purse, and voila, off to the tropical oasis with hat in hand!

Skye’s Bento Lunch Box

Bento Lunch Box [set of 4]

School is officially back in for us so now my life revolves around the questions “Have you packed your lunch lunch?” and “Can I have a snack?” πŸ€ͺ These little containers have been a life saver – perfect to put alongside a main dish in a lunch box or to have pre-packed and ready to go for a snack after school! They are an extra 5% off with a clickable coupon which makes a 4-pack of them around $10. Great quality, each compartment seals separately, and super sturdy – I love these things! xo, Skye

Skye’s Dog Bed

Dog Bed

Don’t mind Honey’s expression – she is just anxiously awaiting her treat for staying πŸ€£ Hey LIY Fam! In addition to just wanting a reason to sharing a picture of my sweet Honey girl, I also wanted to share her new dog bed too! She was in need of one and loves to curl up in this one. Plus it has a cover that zips off so I can easily wash it

Aundrea’s Chapstick Holder

Chapstick Holder

Okay LIY Family, please don’t leave me hanging with this Amazon need. If you are anything like me, you loose your Chapstick weekly or maybe even daily. I found myself placing one in every place or room I would go in! That’s when I knew I had a problem that MUST be solved. So, to Amazon I went and there I found these Chapstick sleeve holders! They have been a true life saver. No more loosing Chapstick and, having to place one in every space of my life! I simply slip my favorite Chapstick or lip gloss in the holding sleeve, and attach it to my car keys!
