I’m Robyn, a special education paraprofessional living right outside Boston with my husband, our 2nd grader and our cat, Molly. Our house is the hangout for all the neighborhood kids so there’s never a dull moment! I’m sharing my 30 favorite things I bought on Amazon that I’d buy 100 times again because I love them so much. See if you agree with my picks for home, kiddos and treating yourself!

This Soft Shag Rug
This shag rug is so soft and plush but still affordable, so it’s great if you have pets or kids (and you have to replace it more often).
This Angry Orange spray cleans up tons of messes easily – it even gets the cat pee smell out of rugs!
This microwave popcorn popper makes a delicious snack without harmful chemicals or fake butter (yuck!), just popcorn and air!
This Balsamic Vinegar
This is the absolute best balsamic ever – it’s rich, decadently smooth and almost more of a glaze than a thin vinegar. Delicious on salad, drizzled over grilled veggies or even on fruit!

This camping chair keeps me comfy during my kid’s long soccer practices – it’s easy to tote along and has a 4-can cooler built in!

It’s hard to say who’s more entertained by this interactive cat toy maze – the actual cats or us watching them try to figure it out!
My elementary school kid is obsessed with memorizing all of the random facts in this National Geographic Fact Book and dropping some knowledge on us, There are over 5,000 facts, so it should keep her busy for a while!
This Camo Sweatshirt
This camo sweatshirt is a cozy outfit maker and so comfortable. I like that it comes in a few unexpected colors so I can snag more than one!

This Breezy Tank Top
This flowy tank top comes in a bunch of colors and is so easy to wear since you can dress it up or down. The price is amazing, too.
These Charging Cords
You can never have too many charging cords – I love this set because they’re really durable and are long enough to reach an outlet across the room.
This Rummikub Game
Rummikub is a fun STEM game that combines math and…fun! Weird but true! I was surprised how much the kids love playing it.
This Comfy Maxi Dress
This well-priced maxi dress makes an easy, comfortable outfit that looks like it took more effort than just popping it over your head.
These Stretchy Jeggings
These jeggings are perfect for casual days or weekends. So stretchy, so comfy but a little dressier than regular leggings.

These cooling towels are a must-have for the gym since I hate being sweaty. These come in a set of four so I always have one in my gym bag or car.
This Tangle Teezer Comb
This comb gets tangles out of my kid’s hair so easily – no more tears while brushing! And it’s compact enough that it’s easy to pack for travel.
