Amazon Prime Day is a once-a-year HUGE sale at Amazon — like, 100,000 items get put on sale. It’s bigger than Black Friday for Amazon. I’m a Prime member (and you have to be to get these deals) and I’ve been shopping Prime Day for a while now. But I recently learned that it is possible to find out in advance what things are going to go on sale. I looked and I found some really interesting DIY & CRAFT deals I’ll be adding to my shopping list for myself and my family — and I thought you might like to know about these deals, too. But be warned — it’s addicting.
Prime Day is over for 2018, but is expected to return in 2019! When it does, I’ll update this post again.

Note that you need to be a Prime member to take advantage of these deals. But the good news is that Amazon Prime offers a free 30-day trial to those curious about trying the service. To access it simply click this link and follow the on-screen prompts. This is how I ended up with Prime — I signed up for a free trial and stuck around because of the free 2-day shipping and free movies. Tip: Anyone with a valid .edu email address can sign up for a 6-month free trial for Amazon Prime Student here.
Money-Saving Bonus Tip: Right now you can get a FREE $10 Amazon credit when you download and sign-in to the Amazon mobile app for the very first time! (This deal is only for people who have never used the Amazon mobile app before.)
Tip: I recommend you click “Watch Deal” for anything that interests you. Then you can monitor your deals on this page.
I will add to this list as I find more deals I think could help you. Set your alarms and have fun shopping! Let me know what you scored.
I hope this list helps someone! I know it’s helping me.
