As a shopping editor, Amazon sale events are my kind of Super Bowl. Now that the Amazon Prime Early Access Sale is officially live, scrolling through thousands of deals to catch the very best has finally kicked off. And let me just say, the deals are good.

From now until 11:59 p.m. on Wednesday, October 12, you can snag huge deals for hundreds of dollars off before the holiday shopping season even starts. Instead of browsing the extensive sale pages and hidden storefronts, I decided to give you a sneak peek of the deals I'm personally buying as an Amazon expert. Did I mention that the prices start at just $6?

There's nothing cozier than cuddling in a throw blanket with a cup of tea and a good book. When I saw that this Eddie Bauer reversible plaid throw was on sale for $18, I immediately added it to my shopping cart. One side is made of ultra-soft fleece and the other a warm Teddy fabric that I can't wait to curl up in.

My current towels lack that "hotel luxury" feeling. That's why I'm grabbing this high-quality, long-staple cotton waffle weave set that's quick-drying, absorbent, and super soft. They're called "bath sheets" because they're larger than traditional towels to keep you comfortable right out of the shower.

Laneige Lip Sleeping Mask

This lip mask has taken over TikTok, and it's time I check to see what the hype is about. The overnight lip treatment is full of hydrating coconut oil, shea butter, vitamin C, and antioxidants. And shoppers say their lips feel "soft and smooth" when they wake up.

Swedish Wholesale Dishcloths

I received a package of these dish towels a year ago, and it's time to get another set. They work wonders on wiping counters, dusting surfaces, and drying dishes with nary a paper towel needed. I love the multicolored pack because I can categorize the purpose of each cloth by color.

With a busy schedule and a house full of pet hair, now's the perfect chance to grab a robot vacuum for less. I'm shopping this iRobot model while it's $75 off. It has a three-stage cleaning system, smart navigation settings, scheduling capabilities, and dirt detect technology that cleans high-traffic areas more thoroughly.

As a novice baker, working with dough is finicky to say the least. I'm far from reaching precise measurements when it comes to cutting and shaping dough. After seeing some contestants on The Great British Baking Show use this adjustable rolling pin that's designed to produce an even thickness, I added it to my wishlist immediately. Now that it's 40 percent off, I'm finally making the purchase.

One Southern Living editor, Kaitlyn Yarborough, said these $17 joggers are practically identical to her Lululemon pair—and I have to see it for myself. The spandex and polyester fabric is lightweight and moisture-wicking to keep me comfortable on the couch and on the go. And I love the high waistband and cuffed ankles.

This concealer has been my go-to for years, and it's time for a restock. It applies smoothly without caking or creasing around my eyes. I use the full coverage concealer on blemishes as well as dark circles, and the application stays all day.

Chef'N Emulstir Salad Dressing Mixer

Chef'N Salad Dressing Shaker

We can all agree that homemade condiments and dressings are tastier than store-bought options. I've been searching for a vessel that can help me create dressings in my preferred proportions, as well as store and serve the sauces with ease. This Chef'N salad dressing shaker does this thanks to its measurement markers, leaf-proof seal, and easy-pour spout. The $13 tool even has a built-in plunger to emulsify ingredients for perfectly blended homemade buttermilk ranch, honey mustard, and vinaigrettes.

Lodge Scraper Combo

I love my Lodge cast iron pan, but I must say, cleaning it is unpleasant. I never feel like I'm getting the stuck-on grease when I hand wash the pan. That's why I'm grabbing this scraper combo that's 33 percent off. One cleans traditional cast iron and the other is for grill pans—the toughest kind to clean in my opinion.

I've wanted a slow cooker for years because it's the perfect set-and-forget way to make tender and flavorful meals. This $30 Crock-Pot has a 7-quart capacity to make roasts, stews, soups, and chilis without any active cooking. Plus, the removable stoneware pot and lid are dishwasher-safe.

We could all benefit from a streamlined home, so I'm grabbing a few Amazon smart plugs that will allow me to schedule lights, fans, and other appliances all throughout my home. They connect to Amazon Alexa, so I can tell her to turn off the lights or turn my coffee maker on each morning. I'm particularly excited to use them for all of my Christmas lights.
