Amazon Prime Day is here and while there are plenty of big discounts on things like exercise bikes and treadmills, there’s also a lot of smaller items that are worth bulk buying right now.

When you’re approaching a big sales day like Amazon Prime Day, it makes sense to think carefully about everyday items you use – and how you can save on these smaller products – rather than splashing out on unnecessary purchases. While it’s much less exciting to stock up on things like plasters and health goods than it is to buy a shiny new rowing machine, it will probably save you more money in the long run. 

With this in mind, we’ve rounded up the best items to bulk buy on Prime Day, with a selection of things that actually represent good value. All of these items cost less than $50 – and if you choose to buy larger quantities of them, you can save even more money.
