The carpet cleaner, def. the carper cleaner. i used a compay, and it cost me $400! for the price of using them i could have rented the equip and done the job myself for ALOT less & more than once.
Its all about saving money and still getting a job done.

4 Kris May 17, 2009 at 6:27 pm

Well, we already have most of the tools we need for the projects - just need to save money for the materials! I'm sure that dh would appreciate the hole-digger for installing our new fence!

Kris´s last blog post..Happy Thanksgiving. . .

I'd really like to rent the Carpet Express carpet cleaner. I need to deep clean my carpets. With three cats, this is a must do.

6 catherine May 17, 2009 at 6:30 pm

we need some shelving, so a home depot card would be awesome! but i really really need my garden spot tilled... really bad.

7 catherine May 17, 2009 at 6:30 pm

i meant to say, that tiller rental would be perfect!

and you're on my blogroll.

8 Doris Landry May 17, 2009 at 6:30 pm

Looking at the Home Depot Rental Page , the choices of things to rent were great. But to pick one i would pick the Carpet Cleaner. I have dogs and use to be able to save up and treat myself to have my carpet cleaned once or twice a year. well with my husband and i working less that is just one of the things that have to go to the back burner. I would not mind using very good equipment and do it myself. Fingers crossed to win :)

14 Nancy S. May 17, 2009 at 6:46 pm

The carpet cleaner is my first choice.

15 Jill J May 17, 2009 at 6:52 pm

We could use the aerator, pressure washer, or carpet cleaner!

16 Laura May 17, 2009 at 6:53 pm

We are about to buy our first home, so the card would be great for blinds and painting the walls and adding shelves in the closets.

17 Elizabeth May 17, 2009 at 6:53 pm

I need the carpet cleaner!

18 gayatri May 17, 2009 at 6:53 pm

23 Laurie D May 17, 2009 at 6:59 pm

The cement mixer would be great to make a patio in the back of the house! :-)


24 Brea V May 17, 2009 at 7:01 pm

My family could really use the 2 man hole digger as we hope to put fence up this summer around our home. That would be very helpful! Thanks!

25 Anna S May 17, 2009 at 7:03 pm

The demolotion hammer would be awesome! Our front entry way needs to be repaired and it's all concrete. The Gift Card would go a long ways to helping us fund this project!

26 Brea V May 17, 2009 at 7:05 pm

I have just subscribed to your newsletter. Thanks for all the savings!

27 sarah woods May 17, 2009 at 7:06 pm

Love the idea of the solar lights on top of deck posts plus the love of the prefabricted/nonwood fencing in panels; thanks sw

28 Shelly May 17, 2009 at 7:09 pm

I soooo need the tiller. We did our whole garden mostly by hand, and by we, I mean my hubby! Great giveaway!

Shelly´s last blog post..Totally Free Groceries!!! I Can't Believe I Won!

29 Michele May 17, 2009 at 7:10 pm

The wood floor edger would be helpful for finishing off the new dining room. Bought the furniture and everything, now just need someplace to put it!

33 kathy pease May 17, 2009 at 7:16 pm


34 nicole May 17, 2009 at 7:29 pm

i would rent the carpet cleaner!

35 Shirley May 17, 2009 at 7:29 pm

The Airless paint sprayer would work for me, along with the chainsaw too! I'm trimming trees and painting the outside. We just bought this house and OH MY GOSH. What a mess it was in. My "to-do" list needs a day at the spa when this is done. :-D

36 tricia May 17, 2009 at 7:33 pm

I'm planning on doing my linoleum (yes linoleum) countertop over with new tile. The tile saw would come it handy.

37 Luisa May 17, 2009 at 7:41 pm

The power rake looks awesome! I didn't know thjere was such a thing. That would be my choice.

38 Sherry Castello May 17, 2009 at 7:58 pm

The Panellift Drywall Lifter, which can be rented from Home Depot, would make installing drywall to our garage ceiling easier.

39 erica May 17, 2009 at 8:05 pm

We'd love to utilize the paint sprayer! We just bought a new home last fall and are expecting, an unexpected, addition to our family this June. We had planned on both of us painting, but it will have to just be my husband this time around. With all of the other stuff we have to do in order to get ready for the baby, a paint sprayer would really lessen the amount of time it would take for him to paint with a brush!

40 Desirae May 17, 2009 at 8:10 pm

I would love the tile saw! master bath needs to get finished!

41 Desirae May 17, 2009 at 8:10 pm

I subscribed to the email

42 Tina Harris May 17, 2009 at 8:21 pm

The carpet cleaner. We just bought a home, and this would be a huge help to us.


43 Jennifer May 17, 2009 at 8:22 pm

Tile saw! I would love to replace the tile in one of our bathrooms!!

44 Leigh Nichols May 17, 2009 at 8:23 pm

I need to rent a carpet cleaner AND a tiller.
Our home is nearly 4 years old and the carpets have never been cleaned...yikes!

46 Louise Brouillette May 17, 2009 at 8:26 pm

The Airless Paint Sprayer sounds useful

47 Janice May 17, 2009 at 8:30 pm

The carpet cleaner would be great to rent for the weekend.

48 Sherry R May 17, 2009 at 8:37 pm

I would like to try the Two-Man Hand-Held Hole Digger to install a fence this summer!

We could really use the rental of the carpet cleaner. We rent our home and have lived here for 8 years. Our kids were much younger and the carpet was an off-white. Why oh why did they put that, I have no clue.

Nevertheless, the house is hubbys bosses and he offered rent a bit lower than where we were so we took it. Kids are out now and I so want it cleaned really well. I am about ready to try vinegar.

The airless spray painter would be nice to rent as well.
