It’s time to stock up! Oh yes, Toolmongers, it is indeed time to get out there to your local big-box store and pick over the bargain bins and clearance racks. Your target is not the plethora of turkey day supplies and wicker-mania, nor even freshly laid out Christmas madness that’s now being shoved out in the middle of October. Nay, these are not the goodies we were picking over this week like a pair of starving lions on the savanna.
Your target is all the discarded summer merchandise — the hoards of local big-box summer goodness that have been living in the overhead storage racks like so much Fonzy. Just this week alone our local big-box store had an entire makeshift aisle full of things like patio furniture, ceiling fans, grills and lighting for more than half off. We picked up a nice 52″ ceiling fan w/remote for $25, a 22″ charcoal grill w/side supports for $50, and way too much more to go into here.
Note: This stuff isn’t in the circulars or ads because they don’t need to advertise to move it. So if you’re a shrewd bargain hunter (like we are), it’s time to leap upon on the deals and reap the rewards.
