Just the other week, we wrote about a Target cart that’s taking the internet (or, at the very least, the Instant Pot Facebook community) by storm. Turns out, Target sells a round utility cart that’s the perfect size and shape for storing your Instant Pot. (If you haven’t read that story, we’ll wait!) And today, in more Cart News, we bring you yet another smart use for another cart that’s sold at Target. This time, brought to you by blogger and lifestyle guru Camille Styles.

Styles turned a $30 rectangular cart into the simplest, most perfect breakfast station. “The idea of an ‘appliance garage’ is something we’re seeing in modern kitchens a lot, and it’s such a great way to keep counters clutter-free, while still keeping your appliances accessible,” she says. “This rolling cart from Made By Design accomplishes the same thing, and is a great solution that can be incorporated into any kitchen. We keep ours stashed in the pantry when it’s not in use and roll it out when we need to quickly grab the toaster or the coffee maker.”

We’ve long loved the appliance garage, but recognize that it’s not an option for everyone. Because it takes up counter and cabinet space — and requires special cabinetry. This idea, however? Well it can be put to use in nearly any kitchen. You just need a little corner, a bit of wall space, a pantry, or even a coat closet, and you can easily tuck the cart away when not in use.

If this cart looks familiar to you, it might be because it’s a lot like IKEA’s RÅSKOG cart. It’s the same price as IKEA’s but it DOESN’T require an all-day shopping event. Plus, we’ve heard some comparison shoppers say this version is sturdier and far superior.

Want to load your cart up with even more breakfast supplies? We’ve got some ideas to help you (see: The IKEA RÅSKOG Cart as Coffee Station) and are particularly proud of the idea to use S-hooks to add storage space for coffee mugs.

What do you think? Would an appliance garage or an appliance cart work for you and your breakfast supplies?
