FAQs About Home and Garden

While there are dozens of kitchen gadgets you can add to your home for convenience and pleasure, you'll find that many of these are only appropriate for people who consume a lot of a particular type of food. If you have a small kitchen or you're just starting your cookware collection, stick to the basics. Here are some items nearly every kitchen needs:
  • Skillet.
  • Soup/stockpot.
  • Saucepan.
  • Sheet pan.
  • Casserole dish.
  • Nesting bowls.
  • Chef's knife
  • Cutting board.
  • Colander.
  • Tongs.
  • Ladle.
  • Whisk.
  • Can opener.
  • Peeler.
  • Spatula.
  • Measuring cups and spoons.

Explore the home and garden section in nearly any store, and you'll find a dizzying range of kitchen appliances. Browse these options mindfully so you can choose only those gadgets that you'll get good use out of. 

If you're considering a major change in your diet, such as juicing, try it out with pre-made products before you purchase costly equipment to do it yourself. Try drinking green juice or smoothies from the store every day for a few weeks to make sure this is a diet change you want to stick with. If you love the results, a juicer or blender is likely a great investment.

Items such as a coffee maker or waffle maker are great if you consume these products often. However, you should consider how much counter and storage space you have available for kitchen appliances and narrow down your purchases to those you'll use at least weekly.

If you're preparing a garden for the first time, these steps will get you started:
With this information in hand, you can compare the planting guidelines for different plants and find those that will thrive. 

The kitchen is a popular gathering place for small gadgets and tools. The best way to streamline your meal prep is to keep everything you need close at hand. The home and garden department is a great place to find convenient solutions for kitchen organization. Here are some handy ways you can add space to your kitchen:
  • Place a tension rod in a cabinet to support an extra row of spices.
  • Use wall-mounted hooks and dowel rods to hang foil and plastic wrap.
  • Add shorter shelves in cabinets to separate differently sized plates and bowls.
  • Install a pull-out drawer or lazy Susan to make everything accessible in deep cabinets.

The bathroom is typically the smallest room in the home. Organizing this confined area can present a challenge, but many products on the market will help streamline the process for you. 

Begin by cleaning out the shelves, drawers, and cabinets in your bathroom to take stock of the items you have. Do you have enough lotions to fill a whole bin under the sink? Do you need a deep shelf just for towels? How many bottles, bar soaps, and loofahs do you keep in the shower? With this information in mind, you can start exploring the home and garden department at your favorite store for smart solutions.

In the bathroom, you want to make use of all available space, so you might consider stacking bins under the sink, placing a skinny shelf in the corner, or adding a shelving unit over the toilet.

You can turn to Instacart to quickly and easily stock up on all your home and garden needs. You'll appreciate the extra time to spend on your home and garden!
