We all have that not-especially-fun list of household necessities to buy: batteries, replacement toothbrush aids, tea lights, pest control, toilet paper…you know what we mean. As un-thrilling as they may perhaps be to make a trip to the store for, these household essentials are at some of their lowest prices of the year for Black Friday, making it easy to shop online and get the list taken care of in way less time. (And if it’s annoying to spend money on boring but necessary things, at least this way you spend less.)
We’ve rounded up some of the best Black Friday deals on household products, including eco-friendly swaps for disposable items, go-to skincare like Cetaphil and Olay, as well as must-haves like a first-aid kit and Keurig K-Cup pods. Read on for our picks below.
