It truly is like Christmas in July.
I LOVE a good deal, and Amazon Prime Day is absolutely full of them!!
Here, I've compiled everything you might need as a student and as an SLP. From home and kitchen (including coffee, of course!) to storage and organization, notebooks, craft items for making therapy materials - you name it, it's probably here!
*This post contains affiliate links & was created for Amazon Prime Day 2022. While links will still be active after this sale, the prices may not be the same. I still recommend these products for students & SLPs no matter what time of year it is! If you make a purchase through these links, I may receive a small commission. All opinions are my own!

Let me know what deals are your favorite! Enjoy!
As a college or graduate student, these are the furniture & kitchen items you want in your space!
Yes, this just had to be my number one recommendation! This machine makes the best coffee I've ever tasted outside of France & Spain. Right now, it's on sale for $50 less for Amazon Prime Day.
Try my favorite capsules, Melozio, and let me know how much you appreciate this recommendation when you're waking up on a stressful day to the most amazing coffee!
P.S., yes, I do recommend getting the machine with the milk frother. I use it to froth creamer and it truly makes a difference in how delicious it tastes!
This thing does it all, and has over 53,000 ratings to show for it. Making meals is a breeze with this thing, and since it's a 10-in-1, it helps limit all the appliances you need when you're in a small space!
The air fryer has become one of my best friends, especially on busy days when I don't want to spend an hour cooking when I get home!
This one has over 75,000 ratings & 4.7 stars, and it's currently under $100. The cookbook has 100 air fryer recipes to give you ideas and get your comfortable using it. Check it out!
This set has everything you need for stovetop cooking in college & grad school, and it's pretty. Its 4.6 stars and hundreds of reviews make it hard to beat!
I really think the title speaks for itself. It's a compact, space-saving vacuum that is extremely powerful and self-cleans. Plus, it's on sale for 34% off! Check it out:
Health, Wellness, and Beauty
If you've read my article on Healthy Meals for Busy Students, you know I love a good smoothie.
This blender makes it extremely easy to make a quick, healthy smoothie in a travel-friendly container, put the lid on, and go. It's cheaper than the Ninja version and has similarly great ratings & reviews. Check it out!
I have an older version of this same diffuser, and I absolutely love it! I love the peaceful lighting and love that it comes with a starter essential oil set. I quickly discovered the ones that I like and learned how to make combinations for energy, relaxation, and stress relief. It's currently 42% off - check it out!
I also love that these bands are super cute and are also good for working out - they're comfortable and stylish so that you don't have to change them out all the time!
These are essential, and this is a great price! Check out all of their colors at the link below:
I recommend these shoes all the time! I run in mine, but doctors and nurses at the hospital I work at wear these for all-day comfort, too! These are great for running, work, and clinical placements. Grab yours here:
6. Quite Literally Anything CeraVe
CeraVe is having a big sale during Amazon Prime Day, and they are tied for my favorite skincare brand with cocokind.
Storage & Organization
We all need some good storage & organization no matter what size of space we are in. Check out these deals below:
This is a pack of 6 storage cubes with handles for under $20. I have some of these in my home office closet - see here for home office organization tips!
2. Utility Tote
Whether you use this for groceries or for transporting materials - this is the tote for you. It holds so much & makes carrying multiple items extremely easy! Snag one of their 14 patterns below:
I LOVE my shoe racks! They are so helpful for organizing shoes in small spaces. For me, I have so many shoes that all get neatly organized with just one of these organizers!
These fit easily under beds and look nice for putting them on top closet shelves as well. Easily and neatly store out-of-season clothes, extra pillows/blankets, and sheets with these awesome organizers! They come in 4 colors and 3 sizes so you can get exactly what you need!
I have this in my bathroom for extra storage, and I have a friend who uses it in her bedroom as an extra dresser. It is a chic storage organizer that holds so, so much and looks beautiful. Not to mention it has 4.5 stars and hundreds of reviews. Check it out:
This is a 14-piece set that you can use for your desk, kitchen, and bathroom:
School / Office Supplies
I used a Microsoft Surface Pro in grad school, and it is still my main laptop today. I have never had any issues with it, and I love how portable it is! Get this bundle with the surface pro, keyboard, pen, and protective sleeve at a low price year-round:
This will be important for grad school. Save yourself lots of time and stress by having a color printer in your apartment. This one is extremely affordable, is Amazon's #1 best-selling printer, and has 4.3 stars with over 11,500 reviews. Check it out:
Grab HP printer paper HERE.
These are 1.5-inch 3-ring binders plus divider sets at a steal of a price:
Set of 6 different-colored notebooks for all your written notes:
5. Black Pens
You've gotta love a sale on the perfect gel pens! Get a 4- or 12-pack here:
This is what I use for work in both my practice and at the hospital, and I wish I had it in grad school. It's so much nicer when we can hold our pens, markers, and papers all in one spot!
Crafting / Material-making
Cricut has a lot of options, but this explore air 2 does everything you would need for crafting/making therapy materials, and it's a great price. I purchased the Maker 3 myself, but I'm not sure I'll use the extra features all that often, and the Cricut Explores seem like the best choice for everyday use!
You definitely don't need this whatsoever for making therapy materials, but if you're crafty and plan on making/already make lots of materials yourself (and would use this for other craft/gift projects as well), this is a great buy.
Check out Cricut's vinyl & accessories that are currently on sale for Amazon Prime Day HERE. There are so many options on sale!
2. Colored Pens
I used colored pens to categorize information in my planners throughout college and grad school, and it really helped to have certain colors for certain activities/classes/exams. Get the same pack I used on sale here:
These are one of my saviors when it comes to therapy materials. I don't always have time to laminate, so I use page protectors to protect coloring pages, dot pages, and pages for using playdough to 'trace' animals/objects! It saves lots of printing and also saves me from having to laminate everything!
Clothing & Accessories
Honestly, there aren't great deals so far on clothing. There may be more that pop up throughout the sale, and I will add them here, but I only add deals that I personally recommend and have high ratings. So far, there isn't much, but you can check out the deals I did find below!
A classic staple that goes with any outfit:
Comfortable yet chic. These are great for dressing up or down, and are perfect for a mixed day of clients when you may need to be playing on the floor with children one hour and working with a professional adult the next!
CRZ Yoga is having a big sale during Amazon Prime Day - most items are at least 20% off! They have a whole host of products available (and a majority have 4.5+ stars and thousands of reviews), so check them out at the link HERE.
This is my all-time favorite tote bag I have ever owned. It holds so much and has compartments for everything. I use the handbag for my makeup, which was a nice bonus and also holds a LOT. Plus, the tote adorable, and I get compliments on it all the time! Check it out:
Bed & Bath
More essentials, lots of deals! Here are some of the best:
This 8-piece set comes in 6 colors and has 4.5 stars with over 3300 reviews:
2. Sheet Set
Disclaimer: I do not have personal experience with this yet, but I am buying it during this sale for myself! It has 4.5 stars and over 110,000 reviews, so I think it's a good choice! It can be used as a duvet insert or just as a comforter itself:
Casper is having quite the sale for Amazon Prime Day, with up to 50% off select items! Their pillows and weighted blankets come highly recommended by me, and they have 4+ stars and hundreds of reviews. Check out their deals HERE.
This is Amazon's #1 best seller in wall-mounted mirrors, but you can keep this one sitting on the floor against the wall, too, if you wish!
I use these in my closet and I LOVE them!! I keep all of my workout clothes neatly organized in them. They're super helpful!
