Using Amazon Smile to give back while shopping

Apparently in 2013 I had 164 orders from Amazon.

Yup, I'll just give you a minute to let that astronomical number sink in.

Still in shock? Me too.

As I've mentioned before, using Amazon Prime saves me at least 10 hours a week and hundreds of dollars. The time part is easy, but the money part is mostly due to the fact that I don't have any impulse purchases (ahem, Target I'm talking to you).

So when a friend told me that Amazon rolled our Amazon Smile, and will give a small percentage to the charity of *your choice* I was all about it. I signed up to support my daughter's school, and now each time I buy diapers, toilet paper, crocs, books, a TV for a vacation house I'll be making money for a worthy cause.

Just go to smile.amazon.com and sign up for the charity you want to support. All your wish lists and orders and account settings are the same, and you can still get prime shipping and everything, but it's super awesome.

btw- I'm hoping to stay under 100 purchases for 2014. Last year was just extra crazy with the vacation house to furnish and fill, so I'm blaming at least 50 purchases on that:)

That is so cool! We use Prime, so I'll definitely have to sign us up for this!
