Not sure what to do with a Home Depot or Lowe’s discount gift card? Since we’re quickly approaching the cold weather of Fall and Winter, what about weatherproofing your home? Home Depot has these great project guides; I particularly like the one for weatherproofing your windows. It makes such a huge difference with just a couple minutes of work. I did this in my previous apartment and my utility bills were halved. Besides windows, you can also weatherproof your doors, garage – even your doggy door!
Still hanging on to the summer? No problem, Lowe’s is currently having a grill clearance sale. Stock up for Labor Day or Indian summer! And if you’re going to grill, you need some patio furniture for your family and friends. Barbecued chicken, a cold beer, and relaxing with your favorite people is a great way to take advantage of the last bit of warm weather.
Have you bought our Home Depot and/or Lowe’s discount gift cards? What did you use them for? I love hearing renovation stories. They give me ideas for my future home!
