As you may have noticed, we at HGTV love Amazon. You can find just about everything you need from the comfort of your own couch. Plus, Prime members get free and fast shipping! You can also find TV shows or movies to stream, order groceries with Amazon Fresh or Whole Foods Market, take care of your pharmaceutical needs with Amazon Pharmacy and so much more. The list goes on and on. One major Amazon store we can’t say enough good things about, amongst many, is Amazon Basics.

When we shop in-store or online, we consider many factors. Those factors vary by product, but two that usually remain constant are price and quality. As we compare our options, we may find that getting the best quality means paying a higher price, and going the inexpensive route may result in a lower-quality purchase. Thanks to Amazon Basics, those days are in the past. Check out our favorite products (all with 4.5-star customer reviews or above!) from key categories below and know you are getting the best finds for the best prices.
