All The Stuff We Keep Adding To Our Amazon Carts


If you’ve been reading Spotted features for a while, this won’t come as a shock: Scary Mommy staffers are addicted to Amazon. And when we find something that’s made our lives easier or better, we want to share it with the world. So, we’re spilling the beans on our latest batch of fabulous online finds, ’cause we know if we love it, you will too. (Just don’t buy the last one in stock because we’ll need more soon!)

HOMYFORT Over The Door Organizer

I just got this last night and it’s so roomy and sturdy – plus it holds a TON, so it’s great for smaller spaces like mine in Queens. The other bonus is that the compartments are clear so it’s easy to see what is in each ‘shelf.'”

UNOMOR Glow in Dark Wall Decals

These glow in the dark stickers came to the rescue when my 20 month old was having a major sleep regression. She refused to go to bed herself and my entire night would be thrown into the garbage. Enter these stickers. I put them up and told them they were here to keep her company while she was sleeping. She was so fascinated by them, I would catch her on the Nest inspecting them after I put her to bed. No more laying in the dark for hours with her! My nights are back to Netflix & chill, but without the chill.”

CABOODLES On-the-Go Girl Purple Marble Vintage Case

I’m living my 90s girl best life with this on-the-go Caboodle. It works for storing a bunch of different things, but as always still makes for amazing makeup storage. Caboodle is still mega adorable and affordable (perhaps even better priced today than it was in the 90s) and comes in a variety of colors and sizes.”

LIVING PROOF Full Conditioner

TATCHA The Silk Canvas

I’ve used all the primers – this one is unreal.  It’s so smooth and makes my foundation work like an eraser of imperfections when I apply it over this primer.”

TECKIN Smart Plug Mini Outlet

This is the best $10 I’ve ever spent. This outlet adapter can be controlled from your iPhone, while sitting on the couch, binge watching your favorite show. It also has a programmable timer. A must-have for the holidays. :)”

SEVEN MINERALS Organic Aloe Vera Gel

I have dry skin and keeping the moisture locked in has always been a challenge. I’d tried numerous serums from different price ranges and nothing worked as well as this inexpensive, natural Aloe Vera Gel. Slap it on before applying the moisturizer or retinol and your skin will thank you.”

AFATAPE Gold Foil Washi Tape
