While we take time each Memorial Day to honor the women and men who died while serving in the US military, the national holiday also marks the unofficial start of summer. With warmer weather, longer days, blooming flowers and gardening plans ahead, our thoughts are turning to working in the yard and lazy days spent lounging on the porch. And of course, this summer — perhaps more than any summer before — we’re also thinking about how to make good use of time at home.
If you’re looking to spruce up your space, you can upgrade everything from home appliances and patio furniture to power tools with the deals at Lowe’s Memorial Day sale, which is offering up to 40% off select items. We’ve rounded up a dozen of the company’s top-rated and bestselling buys that are not just major bargains, but will also help make this year’s stay-cation just a little bit better.
