Re: What was the last thing you bought at Bunnings?

On Saturday I gave my husband a list of what I needed from Bunnings - most of the items required for spring clean of house and a few things I needed for current projects. Shouldnt have been surprised he missed most of the cleaning products picked up the wrong stuff for the projects and came home with stuff he needed for his projects. Either of us can be trusted to go on our own!!

@CHowton  - such a common problem for women who send their partner to Bunnings with a list of stuff they want. I really don’t know why or how this happens 😂 Although I see you’re equally fallible in this regard, meaning, you should take his list in order to get what you want and vice versa, cheers Deb :smile:

My wife refuses to go with me and would rather I give HER a list of what I want and I stay home.
She reckons I spend waaaaay too long looking at stuff that I did not go there for and that I have come home with stuff I didn't intend on getting, too many times.

As for the last thing I bought from Bunnings. Well, my wife did via my list...
2 brass 18mm tap fittings.
Plastic ones were nice and cheap, but 2 snapped at the hose connection point within a week of each other after a year of use.

Re: What was the last thing you bought at Bunnings?

Hubby hates hardware stores like poison - except for the now defunct one that started with M. He liked it cuz it was clean. Personally I like a grungy hardware - more likely to find treasures.

 

Bought rivets, as I couldn't find the right size in the stash - only to find them whilst going through the garage drawers in a place where they aren't supposed to be. We'll never run out! I might have to dream up a creative use for them. Then I saw the hooks to put on colourbond fencing without drilling, then short hanging plant hooks (that I had to bend in the bench vise because they didn't hang straight, lol), and ended up with 2 echeveria, and some pots as well.

$80 later for a $10 packet of rivets. I'm sending us to the poorhouse, lol.

 

I need to stop going there, but it's 15 mins walk - I need a support group!

Treated pine sleepers for a new garden bed that I am building next to the new verandas down the side of my shed.

Doing a lock change for someone as he removed an uninvited guest from his house and apart from needing three sets of entrance locks he also found this.

@Brad Thanks for that info on the Swann Video Doorbell - I have a pair of rear roller doors and no gate, and not many clues as to how people can let me know they’ve arrived. This would be perfect, and quite reasonably priced! Cheers Deb :smile:
