Not to be a party pooper or anything, but Memorial Day's not actually the beginning of summer. That's not till 5:13 am (Eastern) on June 21. Which makes this holiday weekend a best-of-both-worlds situation for all the handymen and home-improvers out there. Not only do you get to reap the benefits of a stellar weekend of sales on tools and materials, you also get to tackle those long-delayed DIY projects while it's still spring!
If you're one of those fix-it fanatics, married to one, or the spawn of one looking for a Father's Day gift, here's a can't-miss deal: This Dewalt 20V Max Cordless Drill/Driver Kit is now on sale at Amazon for $99, down from $169 — that's 41 percent off! But today's your last chance to get this Memorial Day deal
In case you're new to the world of home improvement, Dewalt is one of the premier brands. (Don't believe us? Have a gander at a nearby construction site; you'll see a horde of hardhats wielding Dewalts.) So, this is a special sale indeed.
Really, no home (or apartment) should be without a drill. Who doesn't need to put up shelves, hang drapes, mount heavy picture frames or add an electrical outlet from time to time? This Dewalt will cut your project time from hours to minutes.
This Dewalt drill/driver offers 300 watts of power and can run at speeds up to 1,500 rpm, with a maximum torque of 530 inch pounds. That's enough to show the toughest, tightest fasteners who's boss. This kit comes with a charging dock, which plugs into any household socket. It also has two lithium ion batteries, which means you can have one fully juiced at the ready while you go to town with the other. Additionally, it features an LED "headlight" for drilling or driving in tight dark spaces (inside closets, under stairs or porches, between tight-set joists or beams). And, are we nuts, or is the included "contractor" bag both seriously professional-looking and vaguely stylish?
One thing's for sure: Shoppers are gushing over this bad boy, registering more than 27,000 five-star reviews. "Hands-down the best drill on the market!" proclaimed one part-time woodworker. "Let me tell you, I will never go back to corded tools after the way this tool performed.... If you do tons of research on products like I do before I buy, this is a 100% safe bet. You won't be disappointed!"
"As I am not a handy person (usually), I had not had a drill for most of my adult life. After doing tons of research, asking friends, asking contractors, I was always brought back to DeWalt," reported this distaff do-it-yourself-er. "As a woman, I didn't feel like getting all pink power tools was necessary but was also concerned about how easy it was to handle a normal drill. It is powerful but very easy to use.... On a side note, my dad was totally jealous of this drill when he saw it :)"
Neil Patrick Harris is aging like fine wine — and he's enjoying the ride. The actor, 49, stripped down to his skivvies for a recent cover shoot with Out magazine, and spoke in its feature interview about everything from filming nude scenes for his upcoming Netflix show Uncoupled (created by Sex and the City’s brainchild Darren Star), the complexities of digital hookup apps and how he’s embracing aging.
Kristin Cavallari is opening up about learning to love herself. The Hills alum, 35, appeared on Lewis Howes’ podcast The School of Greatness this week, where she discussed everything from parenting to finding confidence in herself. She spoke about making her reality TV debut as a teenager and how that taught her how to navigate hearing criticism from strangers. It's a skill, she explained, that she now can pass down to her three children, who she shares with ex-husband Jay Cutler.
