This question is somewhat vague & broad. It almost looks like a homework question.

For starters, in the kitchen there's salt, NaCl.

In the bathroom, talcum powder, which is ground up talc.

In the garden shed there's fertilizers.

In the yard, soil contains a numerous minerals, which will differ from location to location because of different types of soil. Locations with sandy soils will contain silica.
