A house is like a home with dozens of things that constantly need fastening, adjusting, caulking, and cake-frosting removal. Keep toolbelts stocked with today's Groupon: for $15, you get $30 worth of hardware and merchandise at Lincoln Ace Hardware in Orange.
Whatever the project, Ace Hardware carries the tools and wares to get the home-improvement wheels spinning and offers the professional guidance to prevent unexpected leaks or squeaking noises. Mount each buffalo nickel and copper dime in your coin collection with an Ace six-piece, precision screwdriver set ($15.49), a VPT rip hammer ($6.29), and a plethora of screws, anchors, and bolts. Home-owners can illuminate newfound décor with a 12-pack of Ace light bulbs ($21.48), which can put a spotlight on the painting of an interdimensional portal on the garage, courtesy of the Purdy four-piece, premium paint-tray kit ($19.99). Ace Hardware offers a free paint-matching service to help select hues to complement gray shades or technicolor drapes. Keys can be crafted for $1.99 a pop, or while barnacle-encrusted carpets are cleaned with the help of a carpet-cleaning machine ($30/day to rent).
