    HARBOR FREIGHT: TOOLS!

    by Rich62 Updated Mar 30, 2008
    HARBOR FREIGHT TOOLS

    THIS IS A NO-FRILLS hardware store. They have sold via catalog for many years but now seem to be putting up retail stores as well. Just in the past year I have come across their stores in Austin, Texas, Fort Collins, Colorado, and now in Lincoln, Nebraska.

    Inside you will find a huge selection of tools, large and small, for very good prices.

    What to buy: clamps, screwdrivers, garage hooks to hang stuff on, gardening items in season, air compressors, glues of various types, you name it, they probably have it somewhere in there. This particular store is the largest of the three that I have seen.

    What to pay: generally very reasonable prices. They have a big sale in December, maybe other sales during the year as well.

    BED BATH AND BEYOND: A WORLD OF HOUSEHOLD ITEMS

    ITS A GREAT STORE, a favorite of my wife and myself. I love all the "gadget" type household items they have.

    What to buy: You can get an alarm clock that projects the time in soft blue light on your bedroom ceiling. Its much cheaper than the Sharper Image version. Or how about a measuring cup that has graduations marked when looking straight down into the cup, rather than just on the side. Or the shower squeege for cleaning your shower. Or the best selection of towels in any color. and so on.

    What to pay: very reasonable prices.
