We’re reminiscing on the top items sold, our favorite retailers, and some of the social media and blog posts that this community loved the most! Cheers to another fabulous year, and here’s to the next one – see our 2023 year in review below.

AirHeads | Phone Chargers | Hot Wheels Car

Ah, Amazon. The retailer our dreams are made of. Simply think up an item, type it into the Amazon search bar, add it to your cart, and *boom* it’ll be at your door quicker than you can say “did I really need that??” With the thousands and thousands and thousands of items Amazon has, our top 3 were an eclectic mix!! We were loving this AirHeads variety box, this 3-pack of phone chargers (of course), and this Hot Wheels RC car!

Top 3 Walmart Items

Cookware Set | Shark Vacuum | Outdoor Set

We were all about upgrading the home with Walmart this year! This Carote cookware set, this Shark vacuum, and this 8-piece outdoor set were the top sellers!

Top 3 Target Items

Gift Card | Squishmallow | Target Cart

We obviously had playtime on the mind with Target in 2023! Our top three items sold were this Roblox gift card, a Bluey Squishmallow, and the iconic Target cart toy!!

Top 3 Items from Other Retailers

Lululemon Belt Bag | Hey Dude Shoes | Stanley Tumbler

And we clearly all have great style, and love being on-trend, because our top 3 items from other retailers were the famous Lululemon belt bag, Hey Dude shoes, and Stanley tumbler. Three cheers for great taste, Frugal and Thrivers!!

Top 3 Other Retailers

It’s no secret we love Amazon, Walmart, and Target…I mean, can you really blame us though?! These three retailers also brought some fierce competition this year, and with good reason! The top 3 retailers after our big three were:

  1. Lululemon
  2. Macy’s
  3. Under Armour
