    A couple of weeks ago, i was out pricing 3 way plugs to start stocking up the season. I checked Menards, Home Depot and Lowes and they all wanted $2-3 a piece. I was shocked and their prices on 20 ft extension cords was high compared to the last couple of years. Stopped at Menards today to reload on electrical tape and they had the 3 way plugs on sale for 50 cents.

    So if anyone needs 3 way plugs, menards has them on sale for 50 cents until November 14 or until they run out......

    I picked up the last two over here.
    long way to drive to save a buck for me.
    So I recommend call ahead to get some reserved.

    My wife went to pick more lights up today and she stopped at menards - still $.50 a piece - she bought a 100 for me. OUr light place wants $3.19 for the same exact thing, local hardware store has them for $3.29. So my wife did well today!

    haha isn't the internet great.

    Here's the thing. So many guys get caught up in the technical side of the business and think that just doing the best work around will keep them in business. . . .NOPE!

    Marketing, Professional Sales, and Business Smarts can take you a lot further.

    How bout I give you some tips on your site in exchange for telling me why you use a 3 way plug
