Amazon Prime Day can be overwhelming. This year we’ve seen two million deals released on Amazon and many more across other websites. It’s so much it’s easy to not know where to start. Even our guide to the best Prime Day deals is a long list of items that could give you more options than your wallet can handle.

I’m a true procrastinator, particularly when it comes to buying anything of value. I like to read all the reviews, check all the options and then narrow my choice down to a few products before finally parting with my cash. Unless you’re lucky enough that something on your wish list suddenly comes on sale, there’s not the time to start this whole process.

So, to help you out, I’ve taken stock of all the best deals we’ve seen over Prime Day and shortened the list to just five products. If I was you, these are the products that are not only great items, but they are on sale at a price that it would be crazy not to buy. You only have until 11.59 pm PT / 2.59 am ET to make your choices – after that, prices will go back to normal for most products.
