We lead busy family lives here at West Wales Family Life and for Shopping as much as we love to support local businesses, it isn’t always possible for 100% of what we buy. Sometimes local stores to us don’t stock what we are looking for, or time wise we need to order online at weird hours and sometimes we can’t leave the house so have to have it delivered to the door.
So, when we can’t buy local like many others we turn to online buying for our families. Our go to source is mainly always Amazon, we have prime membership which is fab for the last-minute kids costume or birthday presents for parties as you can get free next day delivery.
Prime also gives you exclusive offers, or first to see offers so good for saving money on Christmas or Birthday presents that we buy throughout the year to help spread the costs.
Prime also gives you free movies and tv programmes which is a godsend when out with the kids you can log in and watch kiddies’ programmes on your mobile!
We also find Amazon handy too for not letting us forget essentials, so for example we have toilet roll on subscription so every month it automatically gets delivered to the door… you may think this is weird but when you have a lot going on with the kids and your memory is like a sieve you wouldn’t believe how much you can forget!!
Anyways, we thought it could be handy if we put together some of the items, we have bought over time in one place to help other families find new tried and tested items. We could list some familiar items at handy prices, some items you may not have heard of before and as we are always being asked to review products, we thought it would be a useful place to list these items in case someone fancied buying one.
Oh, and before we forget to be uber transparent with you all by us putting together this type of Shopping List we can earn a small commission direct from Amazon if anyone buys any of the items we suggest. This comes direct from Amazon not from you and does not cost you any extra on the products you buy, we are simply getting like a couple of pennies for suggesting an item.
Also, this does not sway our opinion on items we suggest they are all items we have genuinely tried and tested ourselves - And to be honest, as we work hard to put together this website for all you lovely families in West Wales for free, if Amazon wants to give us something back from our hard work, we are totally down with that lol!
