I’ve been an Amazon Prime member for years. I admit that when I first heard about it, it seemed like a just another thing to spend money on. But Amazon Prime is a lazy crafter’s dream! I’m a bit of a procrastinator. I think it goes hand in hand with the lazy crafting part of me. Luckily for me, Amazon Prime has thousands of items that qualify for free two-day shipping (and one-day or same-day in certain areas!) I’ll be honest; Amazon Prime (and every shipping service) has sometimes been a struggle for me. I try to be sustainable when I can. But Amazon Prime is so quick and easy that it has my sustainability senses beat. I just do my best to reuse the boxes in craft projects or kid crafts and when I can’t I take them to the cardboard recycling center.

Easy Craft ShoppingAmazon Prime means I’m not spending hours running errands from store to store looking for the exact right thing. I can lay in bed and shop. I can shop at the breakfast table. It also means I can quickly and easily comparison shop. And I can read the hundreds and sometimes thousands of reviews to find out if a product really is the right fit for my craft project.
Subscribe and SaveAmazon Subscribe and Save is a game changer. Certain items are available for subscription at a discounted price. You choose how often you need the item from two weeks up to six months. I use the subscription feature for craft items. Food items. Printer cartridges. I even use it for my fridge water filter! It means I never forget to change it because I have it set to every six months and right when it shows up is about the time I need to change it. So handy!
