Are you looking to be out with your old appliances and in with some new products, but unfortunately, find that high price tags roadblock you from making the upgrade? If so, you're not alone, and eBay is the unlikely hero here to save the day.

Sure, the multinational e-commerce company might be primarily known for its large assortment of new and used items, but what isn't as well-known? That this retailer also offers shoppers just as many certified refurbished products. 

Certified refurbished — or 'CR' — is a step up from refurbished products, putting it in a league of its own.

 The difference is: refurbished items are "good as new," whereas certified refurbished mean's these products have not only been tried but tested, making it a worthwhile investment compared to a risky one. 

In short: it's a pretty sound purchase if you're someone looking to upgrade any household item and do so without breaking the bank. 

Shoppers can save up to 30% off of brand-new products from brand names you know and trust— so, if you're a new mom or budding fashionista is music to your ears. You'll have more money to spend on other items and still get what you need. 

Fantastic, right! Of course, it is. 

So, what are you waiting for here? These are the seven certified refurbished items from eBay you should be adding to your shopping cart ASAP.
