Many people do not realize, if your doing a major home remodel/project you can go the commercial desk at Lowes or Home Depot and set up an account as if you were your own commercial contractor.
They have a couple of different options. The one I prefer to use is give them a check to open an account. They hold it and just deduct from my balance when I go to the cash register. If you don't spend it all, at your request, they return the balance and there are no service fees. I save 5-10% on each purchase. When your buying carpet, flooring, paint, and odds and ends it adds up to a great savings. I just saved $110.00 on interior paint and painting supplies, and on a couple of ceiling fans.

If you are military active duty or retired show your ID and get 10% off at Lowes. I am a dependent of retired military and get the same discount.
You can also do something similar if you are having someone do work for you. The contractor can charge supplies to your account, but you have to approve the purchases (so they don't tack on extra stuff like soda). We did this when we had some work done on our rental house 4 hours away. Worked great. Camilla
