It's all lawn stuff and pseudo new-age wisdom all week on Tools & Garden with our EnLAWNtenment event, and we're GIVING AWAY this RECONDITIONED electric trimmer and blower set.
Was it really just one year ago that Woot Tools & Garden bloomed from the harsh cold ground? It's hard to believe, but it's true. Something like 52 Mondays hence, our little site came to life. And now it seems like it's always been here.
Anyway, in honor of this very special day, we're having a little celebration for the next fortnight*. Check out a special soundtrack, or the Woot Tools & Garden main page, or the various Woot Plus sales, or our Facebook, or maybe even our Twitter because in some or all of these places you'll see us giving away our presents to you! Sadly, we can't offer slices of cake. You'll have to buy that somewhere else.
*if you don't know what a fortnight is maybe look it up on this new thing called Google
There comes a time in every geek's life when he or she must put away childish things, at least for a few hours. We each of us ask ourselves searching questions about our responsibility to maintain the world around us, about our place in "our" place, about the physical legacy we'll leave behind when we're gone.
Or maybe we just like drilling holes and banging on crap. Whatever path may bring you to Woot Tools & Garden, the important thing is that you buy some of the solid DIY gear we're offering at prices so low they're structurally unsound. From drills to grills, from planers to planters, from - yes - tools to garden, think of Woot Tools & Garden as the discount hardware store of your dusty little dreams.
But what if you're new to all this drilling and banging? How will you know where to start? We rank each day's featured Woot Tools & Garden deal on a difficulty rating scale, so the novice can avoid hubristic overreach, and the veteran can avoid crushing boredom. Do the guys at the big-box hardware store even know the word "hubristic"? Well, maybe.
Speaking of crushing boredom, there's nothing duller on the entire Internet than reading a site launch announcement. So we'll shut up now and let you get on with your Woot Tools & Gardening. Let's make beautiful everything together!
A new site means a new way of living. A new way of thinking. And whole new pile of things to which one must pay attention. Hey, it's a lot of effort being an informed consumer, and we understand your plight. That's why we've come up with a system so simple, even a monkey can handle it.
Each day, you'll find a new rating system in the features. Each day, you'll be able to see with a glance just how difficult each item will be to master. Is it for the Complete Noob? Is it for the Actual Professional? Follow the links back here and you can compare and contrast your skills with our monkey's opinions. Like so:
