We all know the best Black Friday deals come in all shapes, sizes and price points. Some of the best discounts during the kickoff to the holiday shopping season are hundreds or even thousands of dollars off the most in-demand tech gadgets, fashion brands and fitness gear. However, sometimes it’s the low-hanging fruit in the form of budget buys where you can really score.
In addition to those special, high ticket items like TV’s, tablets and laptops, all the affordable, bulk-buy items you need to make your household run are also on sale during Black Friday. We’re talking Tupperware containers, cleaning supplies, medicine cabinet essentials and more. They might not be the items you’ll place under the tree, but if they’re on your Costco list you might as well purchase them now and save.
Here are the best home and kitchen essentials under $25 to buy during Black Friday, chosen by SPY editors to make your shopping experience more convenient.
