With spring spreading like a bag of spilled gravy, now is the ideal time to throw open the windows and get home-care projects underway. Pick up a Steel Grip six-piece screwdriver set ($8.49), a VPT rip hammer ($6.29), and a whole bunch of screws, anchors, and bolts (prices vary), and you'll be ready to finally mount every buffalo nickel and steel penny in your coin collection. Illuminate the newfound décor with a 12-pack of Ace light bulbs ($21.48), the better to see by as you make use of a Purdy Chinex Slide paint brush ($14.99–$19.99). If you need to match paint to a favorite coverlet or choose a hue that complements a pleather recliner, each store offers a paint-matching service free of charge, or you can get keys made for your home or your car thanks to their automotive chip key cutting service.
Make a modest auto out of an underdressed Chevy or Ford with a protective tonneau cover ($299.99+). A selection of toolboxes ($249.99+) from United Welding Supply grants tool slingers extra space in which to stuff favorite construction components. Drivers adorn vehicles' plates with license tags and frames ($29.99+) to prevent plates from falling into a life of criminal activity, such as misidentifying bikes or spelling out hard-to-decipher swear words.
At Trim-A-Tree Farms, patrons choose their Christmas tree from a plot of still-planted leyland pine trees and chop it down themselves or have an able-bodied staff member cut, net, and load their catch. Guests stroll through rows of lush green trees ($7.50/ft.) in search of the right plant to fill lonely living-room corners as the aroma of pine needles induces memories of a past infatuation with an air freshener. Between passes through the farm, warm up with steaming mugs of hot chocolate or melt fingers over a bonfire's licking flames as little ones trot through fields atop Star, Trim-A-Tree's trusty chestnut pony, during complimentary pony rides. Though additional items are not included in this Groupon, ornaments from the gift shop revamp trees, and adventurous souls can indulge in free temporary tattoos that take the shape of holiday icons or Scrooge's evening gruel.
The meticulous lawn techs at JTL Lawncare introduce their powerful mowers to overgrown grass blades every 7–10 days to help customers spend less time with their lawns and more time with their families. When they aren't leveling verdant surfaces, the crew trims hedges, removes clippings, extracts weeds, purges gutters, and pressure washes driveways for an additional fee. They ask that clients clear their lawns of all toys, garden hoses, dogs, and outdated moats before each appointment.:m]]
