Home Depot Sweep!

Remember that show Supermarket Sweep? This is a short clip from the 90’s TV show that will help you visualize what my night is going to look like tonight: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=UO_tm-C7yfU

For $15, Jeremy and I have 75 minutes with a Home Depot truck to purchase everything we need to install the master bathroom this weekend, get it home and unloaded, and then return the truck back up to Kennesaw. Only 75 minutes to make it happen and I live about 20 minutes away from the stores. This shouldn’t be a problem except that I also have to go to Floor & Decor Outlet and pick up all the tile for the shower and bathroom floor. It is way too heavy for my car and would take several trips without a truck. Last time I needed a truck I went through U-haul and paid $50 for 3 hours. Ouch.

I think I would rock Supermarket Sweep because I went to both stores on Tuesday night to run through my checklist and make sure they have everything in stock that I need to purchase tonight. It’s called strategy, people. And everything will be at the house, ready and waiting for Jeremy’s parents to arrive on Friday.

I hope someone will take video of this. Ready… set… SWEEP!

  1. Ha! Have fun. The clock shouldn’t start ticking until you begin to actually load the truck I would think. If that’s the case, take your time shopping at HD, line up a clerk to help you load, and then begin the frantic ‘sweep’. good luck, be safe, if you have to pay for another hour or two its cheaper than a speeding ticket!

    Did you crash and burn like that woman in the video, or did you “get by with a little help from my friends?”
