Home Depot sends us daily deals. And we sometimes get suckered in to buying these daily deals. Sometimes, we buy from their overstock deals. Either way, we save a bunch of cash for updated things. Like exterior lights. We had some pretty sad lights when we moved in. Sad because the flood lights were literally coming off the brick, in addition to being broken. And then there was brass. Bright, shiny brass.
A few minutes of work, and we have new lights! Literally. It takes less than 15 minutes per light to install. And they make such a difference.
