DIYs and home improvements are becoming more and more popular hobbies and pastimes. Projects can range from indoors to outdoors, with wide varieties in each. But one thing many of these projects have in common is that the materials for these DIYs were bought at the Home Depot store.
With a store this big, it can be hard to find what you want, and that’s where their product locator comes in. Below we explain what it is , how to use it, as well as a little bit about the Home Depot app.
Home Depot Item Finder
Home Depot is one of the most popular stores to get your building materials for all your projects. They sell everything you could possibly need for any home fixes and remodels. Whether you need to fix a leaky faucet, need new tools, or you want to renovate an entire room, they’ll have just want you need for the job in their store inventory.
But don’t forget to check the clearance sections. They have everything in there, including penny items. As a teen, I would be there all the time. My family on my dad’s side was big on doing things yourself and not hiring someone to do it for you. One summer, we re-did my grandparent’s deck, and I cannot tell you how many trips we made to Home Depot.
Even though we went so often, I don’t think I’ve ever seen the whole store. That’s how big it is. I can’t stress how helpful an item finder would have been. Instead, we had to find an HD employee and ask or wander until we found it.
But what is the Home Depot Item Finder? Well, that’s what today is about. We discuss what it is, along with how to use it.

What It Is
The Home Depot item finder is one of many features in the Home Depot mobile app, and it allows you to find the items you’re looking for down to the exact aisle with a press of a few buttons.
One question you might be thinking about is whether it’s free. The answer to that is yes, the entire Home Depot app is free.
How It Works
You need to download the app and register your account to use the item finder. You need your phone number, email address, and zip code to do this. It needs your zip code so that it can find your store location. Once you have that done, you can make a list. You can do this on the home page.
The great part about this app is you label your lists for different projects. After making your list, go through the app and put everything you want to buy into the shopping list you created. Once you’ve done that, you need to turn on your location setting for this app.
This is the only way you can use the item finder. Now, when you go to your list, the search results will tell you which aisle the product is on as well as the exact section.
And it gets even better. It will even tell you the local store prices and inventory levels of the items in real-time. Now you can get to the cash register or self checkout 10 times faster with all your great deals.
