Ah, Amazon. The online retailer we all know and love, famous for tricking us into spending extra money without even knowing it, particularly around midnight and after a couple glasses of wine (why yes Amazon, I think I DO need 1500 live ladybugs delivered via Prime to my house!). While it's always exciting to see just what will show up on your doorstep the next day, sometimes it's good to plan ahead and purchase things, that, you know...you may actually need and use. In honor of Amazon Prime Day, we've rounded up five amazing deals for the home from the only retailer that can get us to shell out money faster than you can say "sold!".
