A home is a lot like a Rubik's cube—many people attempt to properly coordinate its shapes and colors, but few can do so without painting over the entire thing. Solve puzzling design problems with today's Groupon: for $8, you get one-day admission tickets for two adults to the Third Annual Providence Home Show at the Rhode Island Convention Center on November 12 or 13 (a $16 value).
The Third Annual Providence Home Show brings domestic-improvement experts, contractors, and merchandise together at the Rhode Island Convention Center. More than 130 vendors showcase remodeling services, building supplies, and energy-management solutions ideal for saving money during winter months or optimizing basement cold-fusion reactors. Raffles offer the chance to win home-improvement prizes, such as an invisible fence for pets installed by Moriarty's Fence Company (a $1,289 value) and up to $1,000 in gift certificates from the WaterFilter Company.
