By now, most shoppers knows that Amazon Prime Day is a good time to splurge on a new Vitamix blender or those rarely on-sale Apple headphones you’ve been eyeing. But real deal watchers know that some of the best Prime Day discounts are on household essentials, and those are often the very things that you’ll be kicking yourself for having to buy full-price (or even at a premium) when you inevitably run out of them next week. Think nice-smelling hand soap, absorbent diapers and fragrance-free baby wipes, garbage bags that won’t leak, and actually effective stain removers.
Here, we’ve rounded up some of those everyday, deeply unsexy items — all of which we’ve recommended on the Strategist before. (You’ll thank us later.)
The Strategist is designed to surface the most useful, expert recommendations for things to buy across the vast e-commerce landscape. Some of our latest conquests include the best acne treatments, rolling luggage, pillows for side sleepers, natural anxiety remedies, and bath towels. We update links when possible, but note that deals can expire and all prices are subject to change.
