You can buy everything in Home Depot except your home. On the other hand, if you’re handy, you might be able to create your house kit and hammer a home together. Home Depot is one of those places where you can buy everything up to and including the kitchen sink. Finding something among acres of stuff is more like hunting than shopping.

And like hunting, you find the folks in the orange vest, who all seem pretty darned happy to help you. And this is how cool those orange-vested folks are. They host workshops to teach you to do stuff, such as making a gravestone candy holder for Halloween, a Christmas stocking holder and even a veterans’ Flag Day case.

If it’s not a holiday, check out the workshop for measuring and installing window treatments. Your spouse will be thrilled that you know how to do this stuff.
