The Post About a $40 Lowe's Giveaway

Home Improvement FundThe whatsit on my toilet broke. It's the thingamajig in the tank that pulls on the doohickey that makes the water go away and come back.

And I fixed it. Because I'm amazing.

Although it DID take consultations with my father and Walter at Lowe's

How much do I love those two guys? If Walter wasn't collecting social security and eating dinner every day at 4:30pm, then this post would be an engagement announcement.

So in light of my impressive accomplishment this week, I've decided to give away a $40 Lowe's Gift Card.

How To Enter:
Leave a comment answering the question:

What's one thing you would "fix" in your home?

**2 Extra Credit Entries**

Each of the following will give you one extra entry in the giveaway. Please make sure to leave a separate comment for each thing you do!


1. "Like" Jamie's Rabbits on
Facebook.

2. Follow Jamie's Rabbits on
Twitter.

**You can accomplish both of these tasks by clicking on the links. If you've already liked and followed before today, make sure you comment that too!**


Important Details: Open to anyone in the US or Canada. Must enter before 11:59pm CST on Monday, June 20 to qualify. Winner will be chosen randomly using Research Randomizer and announced next week. Obviously, anonymous folks can't win unless they leave a name in the comment. 
P.S. Although I wander around Lowe's looking perplexed almost weekly, they don't know the first thing about this blog or this giveaway.

  1. The nearest Lowe's is 45 miles from here, so when I go, I go for extend periods of time.  I would like to change out my ceiling fan and add one to my bedroom.    Great giveaway!

  2. Right not nothing! But we just bought a house that we close on this week that is a foreclosure. It has NO kitchen! So we will definitely be needing to be to Lowe's to buy Kraftmaid cabinets, lighting, flooring, appliances, etc!!!

I would love to be able to do that--it would make things a lot more organized! id also love a light above my tub in the bathroom---its sort of odd that there isnt enough light in the bathroom--candles are romantic, dont get me wrong---but id love to be able to flip a switch!!

  47. I fixed the same thing last week. Only when I said, "excuse me, could you tell me where the fill tanks are" the fella relied, "yes sir" then he apologized and said he'd never had a woman ask for that before. I found a video on YouTube that helped me. I was very proud of my work.

    If I had $40, I'd fix my door knobs. Hope there's a YouTube video for that as well.

    I would love to replace the ceiling fan in my bedroom as it is not my style ... but I would also like to put up a fan in my son's room and it would be something cool.  (as in neat-o, awesome or swell)  Sometime I do use "cool" when I know nothing about a topic someone is talking about because I want to act as if I do know-it-all.  In a fashion sense that word if very convenient for me because I generally don't care about what is "in".

I would fix up my crawl space.  I pretty much have a full basement except for an area under one room that juts out from the rest of the house.  They should have just poured a concrete floor to it and vented it into the basement.  However, with a dirt floor, I get chipmonks, mice, and all sorts of things rumbling around under that room creating all kinds of a mess.  Ah, hindsight!
