My favorite is decking and untreated lumber.

Bro, they are just trying to screw you with that overpriced treated lumber

Every once in while I'll buy a giant sized box of "large" male contraceptives, two bottles of extra strength Tylenol, and some rope.

Love to see the other shoppers' expressions.

Man, you must have a great Homey Dopey near you. The only thing on that list I can get at ours is the rope.

Re: DIY Interesting Combined Purchases


Man, the ladders some guys climb in other countries are absolutely frightful!

Put me in a bucket truck, no problem.

On a ladder more than 2 stories - no way!

That's why I'm no roofer or sky scraper builder !

Looks great, so glad we didn't pay some over priced CONtractor to do it for us.
