Random Things People Bought on Amazon from My Blog This Year

This post was most recently updated on May 22nd, 2017

I wanted to find out what the most popular items on Amazon that people bought from my blogs this past year. I’m always surprised to see what is on the list. There are several products I’d never heard of or thought to buy myself. I think it’s fun to peek at what other people buy. Amazon has so many things that you’d never even think of – they have almost everything.

Amazon sells over 480 million products in the USA. Amazon’s product selection has expanded by 235 million in the past 16 months. That an extraordinary average of 485 thousand new products per day.

There are things that I can’t stand to go to the store to buy – things like replacement parts for the dishwasher, refrigerator water dispenser parts, printer ink, furnace air filters, and other things like that that have a lot of part numbers, models and a million possibilities. You can drive all over to look for the exact thing you’re looking for only to have it out of stock or none of your local stores carry it. Same with unusual cooking ingredients like kaffir lime leaves for that Thai dish I want to make. I’d rather just order from Amazon, have it arrive at my house in a box in two days.

One more thing – shoes. It seems like they never have my size or my daughter’s size in shoes I like. I guess I have a very popular shoe size! So when I know the brand and shoe I want, it’s easiest to order them online and know it’s available.

Most Popular Items on Amazon from My Blog

Ok, back to my Amazon bestseller list. These are things people actually bought from Amazon. I only see something on a report if there was a sale. It doesn’t matter if I linked to the product or not, I will see a list of what was purchased. If I were to choose a theme to the purchases, I’d say it’s business women who like luxury sheets, home decor, and skin care products.

Here are some of the top buys. I like seeing what people buy. Maybe it will give you some gift ideas too. Most are very popular and get high reviews – plus they ship free with Amazon Prime. Truthfully, I was about to cancel Amazon Prime because it makes me buy more but then I got an Echo Dot and learned that it streams all the Amazon Prime music free. Ok, I’m sold. Dang capitalism. Amazon is so good at it! Don’t forget you can sign up and put another person on your account. They’ll get the same benefits. I’ve had my mom and brother on mine for a year or more. Now you can just choose one person. But they get free shipping, free movies and music streaming and other benefits.

  • This is a low priced duvet insert and is great for what it is but it won’t perform like a $200 one.
