My mum was here for a fortnight, and like me, she is fond of all things organizing. For the kitchen, in particular. She
helped me in organizing organized the kitchen, got rid of stuff that were old, plastics, and put a ban on purchasing anything new until it was time to discard some of the existing canisters. Aren’t mums are the best? I really love it when she is here as it’s like getting a crash course on life and how to be wiser and balanced.
I took her to Home Centre and she shortlisted a few things I must buy later. Surprisingly, these are sold out online all the time but I was glad to discover they were available in stores.
Here is the list and why I think they are great buys. And just so you know, this is NOT a sponsored post.
1. 6 pc GLASS STORAGE JARS FOR Rs 599
I started with that one thing that’s my favorite and tops the list because it is a great buy at this price. This set of 6 pieces glass storage jars for Rs 599. I have held these jars in my hand and found them comfortable to hold. I am someone who shouldn’t be having any glass canisters in cabinet for the rate at which I break them. My mum often jokes that she is tired of the crockery she has held onto for years and they just don’t break, and that maybe she should just give them to me for they’ll be gone soon.
What I would store: pasta, chickpeas, millets and other stuff I use weekly.
2. CERAMIC SUGAR JAR FOR Rs 550
I keep oscillating between having a clean counter space versus having some essentials in eye-catching containers as this one for some often used items like sugar and tea.
3. TABLE LINEN SET FOR Rs 499
I bought this during the last sale in green and it was a great buy. My mom wanted it but it was sold out. I found this in store but not in red as she wanted. The placemats are not ok for everyday use but once in a while when you are entertaining as the gaps between them make it cumbersome. They did not lose their sheen even after washing so I can say it’s a good buy.
4. LOTUS HANGING WITH 3 TEA LIGHTS FOR Rs 1199
This is a hot buy that sells out as soon as it is available. I’ve seen it in many homes displayed in a nook from an antique bracket. It looks lovely and shins a lone corner like no other.
Where to display: by the sides of your pooja, or in the foyer hanging from a bracket. you can use it as a single one or as a pair.
5. GLASS STORAGE JARS FOR Rs 799
This set of glass jars in varying sizes are brilliant and versatile in their use.
What to store: I use glass jars of varying sizes to store several things from honey and cookies to murabba and cane sugar syrup for everyday use.
6. GLASS STORAGE JARS FOR Rs 299
The glass jars are small enough to display on open shelves in the kitchen. You can store dry spics or condiments.
Well that was my list. I can’t wait for the sale season again. What are your favorites in Home Centre?
When it comes sold out kitchen products..
I see that, Nisha. Which product were you looking at exactly?
Hi Lakshmi ,

Please guide me.
Thank you for your kind words.
Home Centre is present in most major cities and towns. You can also order the products online. The glass jars have improved in quality since I wrote about them. These are good quality ones — https://www.homecentre.in/in/en/Home-Centre/Kitchen/Storage-And-Containers/Containers-%26-Jars/HOMECENTRE-Regal-Glass-Containers–Set-Of-6-Pcs-/p/1000006360932 You can look for similar ones in various sizes. The other alternative for storing spices are Treo (310 ml) – https://www.amazon.in/Treo-Milton-Cube-Jar-Glassware/dp/B010B6GD58. I’ve been using these for the past 3 years and they are all still good.
For slightly cheaper options, you can also look at Yera glass jars. These are available in most crockery shops.
