Amazon Prime Early Access Sale!

Amazon is hosting its first ever Prime Early Access Sale October 11-12! This two-day sale gives early access to Black Friday deals exclusively to Prime members.

A blogger friend of mine said that Amazon Sales can feel like trying to drink from a firehose. There’s so much coming at you all at once! I’ve rounded up my favorites, best-sellers at big discounts, and items too good to pass up! I hope these lists help narrow down what’s really out there and help you find the biggest savings!

I’m thinking of this as an early start on holiday shopping. I always like to get a head start on gifts. It allows me to be more intentional with spending while enjoying the season.

I’ll be adding to these Amazon lists throughout the day, so keep checking back for new items! I’ll also be sharing a few lightening deals on Instagram stories, so be sure we’re connected there!

It takes a lot of effort to scout and round up the best deals. It means the world when you use my links to complete purchases. Amazon will reward me with a small commission at no additional cost to you! 

Want to start by exploring deals on your own? You can access the Prime Early Access Sale HERE! Go find the best deals! 

You can access my Amazon Storefront here to find all the items I’ve shared and love. You’ll also see all of my Prime Sale lists at the top of the page!

How to Organize Your Bookshelf

You’ve got the books. You’ve got a designated space. Now, how are you organizing?

Hello, friends! We’re talking about organization! I get asked all the time how I organize the bookcase and I’m happy to finally lay it all out!

There’s no right or wrong way to organize. In fact, when we first built our bookcase, there was ZERO organization. 100% aesthetic display and, although it was pretty to look at,  it created an internal fury every time I went to search for a book.

There are several ways to go about it. Many organize by genre, fiction & nonfiction, alphabetically by author, celebrity book club picks, and even the eye-catching color-coding rainbow. Organization only needs to make sense to YOU!

My Hybrid Approach to Organization

I’ve taken a hybrid design to lining my shelves and have two systems in place. 

The bookcase is made up of eight rows of five shelves each.

The Top Four

The top four rows of shelves are only books that I’ve read and kept. These are organized alphabetically (left to right, top to bottom) by the author’s last name. 

The Bottom Four

The bottom four rows of shelves are all books I haven’t read yet- hold your judgment! They are also organized alphabetically (left to right, top to bottom) by the author’s last name.

Keeping my read and to be read (TBR) books separately makes locating a book so much easier. If I’m looking to lend a book to a friend, it’s one I’ve read and loved and I know to look at the top. 

If I’m looking for my next read, having all available books within arms reach makes the process more accessible and the decision overall less stressful. I don’t have to climb a ladder every time I want to read a synopsis or first chapter of a potential next read!

The Exceptions

Of course, there are exceptions! Scattered throughout the bookcase, there are some special edition sets and our Bible on display.

There is also a dedicated space for books that have not been published yet. I keep these lined in order of their publication dates. I organize those chronologically, as opposed to alphabetically, to ensure that I can share about the book in a timely fashion. 

To each their own! Like I mentioned earlier, organization only needs to make sense to YOU!

So, tell me! How do you organize? Do you have exceptions to your organization, too?
