Great lawn care Shopping Deals

Wow, I was at Sam's Club yesterday and picked up 100 feet of soaker hose for just $12.xx. Insanely good price.

They are two hoses of 50 feet each. They come in packets of 2--so you can't buy just one hose.

These are the soaker hoses made from recycled tires.

If you find any good deals, post them here. Let's keep this thread going and save everyone lotsa moolah :-)

RE: Great lawn care Shopping Deals

I was at Walmart today getting an all-metal impact sprinkler and a bulb planter that has an adjustable diameter--nifty. Of course, I couldn't resist looking at the new bags of grass seed. Most of the bags were printed with an appropriate 2012 or 2013 "Sell By" date or "Use By" date, but I saw some bags from Scotts that had a sticker placed over their original "Sell By" dates!

When the sticker was peeled off, you could see that printed on the bag itself was a 2011 "Sell By" date, but the sticker covering the bag had a 2012 Sell By date! I don't know if these were last year's seeds or, hopefully, just this year's seeds in last year's bags? Kinda shocked me.

The stickers were so plainly visible. Just needed to lift them up in order to see the bag's original hidden Sell By date. My faith in corporate ethics has been forever shattered--LOL.

In fairness, I should say that most of the Scotts bags had appropriate 2012 and 2013 Sell-By dates. Only a few bags had the conspicuous stickers covering a date from last year. And again, maybe, those were this year's seeds in last year's bags. Sure hope so.
