Don't forget to keep your Amazon boxes in case you decide to return something.

Prime Day is almost here and that means some of Amazon's most popular products will be available at the lowest prices of the year. But like all blowout sales, it can get pretty chaotic searching through all the deals trying to find the best ones. Plus, you don't want to end up buying anything you didn't actually want. So we've compiled the best strategy for making your Prime Day a success.

First off, be sure to make a list of items you might be interested in. That way you don't get swept up in the excitement and end up getting a product just because it was on sale. Amazon will let you make a wish list on your account that you can use on Prime Day.

Be sure to check Amazon a few times during the day to stay on top of "Lightning Deals". Amazon will set up sales that only last for a few hours and typically are the best prices you'll see on certain products.

Don't be afraid to use one-click purchasing. Since all sales will be through Amazon Prime, you get free two-day shipping on everything. You don't want to miss out on a deal because you were shopping for something else! And make sure you have an Amazon Prime membership ahead of time. You'll need one to take advantage of the deals but also remember you can try out a free 30-day trial membership.

And be sure to check out BestReviews, the product review site that uses consumer research and field testing to choose the top five product picks in thousands of categories. You can use their handy guides to make sure you're getting the best products at the best prices for Prime Day.
