My husband and I have been Amazon Prime members for years. We order all of our household supplies, gifts, crochet supplies and even some food items from Amazon. We wouldn’t be able to save money if we had to pay for shipping. Amazon Prime members get free two day shipping on eligible Prime items plus a ton of other perks such as free movie and TV show streaming and free music streaming.

If you’ve been thinking about getting an Amazon Prime membership, how about you start with a free 30-day trial on me? It’s the least I can do for your support!
