I want to remind everyone about a deal that I have talked about in the past. If you are making a purchase of $50 or more at Lowes you want to check out their Gatorade packs or Gorilla Duck Tape. On each package there should be a coupon that says $10 off your next $50 or more purchase. I bought a grill the other day for my mom and purchased a roll of duck tape for $9 then opened that package for the coupon to purchase with the grill. I basically got the duck tape for free. Always look around Lowe’s they put this coupon on many different products throughout the year.
