Our home tech and household appliances have been working overtime during lockdown, but if upgrading yours seems a little too privey right now, we've found an affordable way to buy your washing machines, vacuum cleaners and TVs with big discounts: refurbished products.

While many brands sell refurbished tech and home appliances, we’ve become obsessed with shopping eBay’s Certified Refurbished shop, a hub of refurbished electronics and home appliances from big name brands including Dyson, Samsung and Apple - all for less.
