I wanted to share some information about a new program at Lowe's; it is called MyLowes and its revolutionary for homemakers everywhere.
Jake and I work on a lot of home and garden projects together. (Shh! Don't tell him, but I really enjoy it!) The last time we were in Lowe's we were looking for a Bay window. I tend to dream big and I think a Bay window would be great place to read. Of course, Lowe's didn't have any in stock and even if they did, you would have to know what size you needed. When asked about size, I told the gentleman working there, "You know, standard." He chuckled and then he handed me a brochure and a MyLowes card.
So, what was this piece of paper and plastic card he handed me? Well, it was the greatest thing I'd ever been given at a hardware store. It was a way to manage, track, and dream about all things home. Lowe's had created a way for me to upload all sorts of information pertaining to my home online at MyLowe's account (for free) and bring it with me every time I went to the store. Thus, making the "What size windows?" question easily answered.
I can load the types of filters the fridge and the A/C unit use, the type of stains and paints used for various projects, and the light bulb sizes for every fixture in the house. It is a Type-A Homemaker's dream come true!
I can't wait to get all the measurements, paint schemes, and maintenance parts loaded on this card. I have a feeling it will make my future trips to the hardware store blissful!
