If you’ve read much here, you’ll notice that we make use of Amazon Prime a lot. Usually it’s just because it’s an easy place to find what we’re after at a fair price. When you’re travelling, especially when you’re only going to be somewhere for a few days, the certainty of when something is going to be delivered is very valuable.
I also find myself doing the math comparing a trip to Lowe’s or Home Depot to ordering online. In one case, I needed a dozen or so M4x6mm machine screws. If I went to Lowe’s, it would be almost $2 for each pack of 5, and I wouldn’t know until I got there if they had enough. Even with the extra charge for overnight delivery ($3.99), I had a pack of 100 in my hands before lunch for less than $10.
Why am I talking about Prime now? In celebration of their 20th anniversary, Amazon has decided to make today Prime Day–a day of sales that they say rivals Black Friday. I wasn’t going to go quite that far, but a quick look this morning shows that there are some pretty good deals to be had, and a long list of them.
Part 4 on the kitchen project should be up this afternoon, showing how we sourced cabinet doors and drawers, putting them up, and finishing them.
