I don't buy my underwear at Home Depot so I can't comment on it. [emoticon]

Sorry Home Depot doesn't even begin to compare to Amazon when it comes to on line shopping.

I would drive 10 miles and pick up the stain. If you go in person you know what you are getting and not something picked/shipped by a new employee who thinks all stains are the same.

If you order underwear, make sure you specify no one is wearing them.


How could anybody order underwear? Man or women is not allowed?

I don't live in the middle of nowhere. My Amazon orders come in a day or two. I just checked, so far this year we have placed 67 orders with Amazon. The last few were swimming trucks, cloth adhesive tape, a surf caster's tackle bag, fishing line, and ear buds. With Prime we do not bother to consolidate orders so even small items are shipped separately for the same price.

Needless to say, none of those items were available at Home Depot.

Home Depot in Mexico sucks for hardware and a lot of electrical stuff. But when I shop carefully in the states, I can buy contractors lot boxes of 20-amp duplex receptacles at a good price. But drills and hobby saw stuff are knee knockers. A hoe in Mexico costs around sixty DOLLARS. The head is heavy and sharpened to cut tufts of weeds.

I am going to need a small wagon to haul sacks of groceries from the trunk to the freezers and refrigerators. No dirt or steps. Does this really call for a hundred dollar wagon?

For me anything delivered beats visit to the store during these times. As long as the delivery is free. All big box stores have now added a substantial amount of online-only items, i.e. they don't have it but order from the US distributor when you need it. Amazon have gone further yet, they are now not much different from Ebay or Aliexpress - some guy in China sells you something via Amazon, higher prices than Ali and same 6 weeks wait.

I do live in the middle of nowhere, way out in the boonies but considered in the Raleigh metro for some unknown reason.
Amazon can't be beat. Even out here a lot of stuff is next day. I do like Home Depot a lot for their staff over Lowes.

There are probably literally a million products you can get from Amazon that aren't available at Home Depot.

I live in central NC and nothing out here but me, cows, and chickens. Nearest stop light is maybe 15mi away. I check local price, check on line, and then make a decision. A recent water pump was $200+ at Auto Zone and $37 on line delivered. Both made by the same manufacturer. Looking for a step motor for the DP and dealer wanted $200+ and it was $37 online delivered. I would like to shop local but they don't make it easy.
Being a veteran I go to Lowes for the 10% discount on everything. It adds up.

Mex, what are you doing with all those receptacles? Sideline business perhaps?
