So FH and I are fixers + frugal…so we’ll most likely never pay someone to fix something in the house unless we absolutely cannot do it ourselves. So naturally, we want to register for some sweet power tools…but we don’t know where a good place to do so would be. I did some investigating online re: Home Depot and Lowe’s registries and I got mixed messages but determined that those stores do not (?) have registries (please correct me if i’m wrong).
Where do we go next from here? Did anyone else register for good quality power tools? If so, where did you register?

I wanted to do the same. When I went to Lowe’s they told me they have a registry online and only certain stores do registries. Maybe you can try registering at Sears. I know they have a huge selection of tools and appliances.

Sears has a great reputation for tools! Craftsman is a reallly good brand so i think that would be your best bet 🙂

I would normally say register at Lowe’s and Home Depot but unfortunately Lowe’s no longer has a registry (they shut it down July 28, 2009 but nobody can tell me why). As for Home Depot, I cannot find on their website anywhere that they ever had a registry option. My next thought would be that you could use Amazon.com to make a ‘universal wedding wish list/registry’. It’s really neat because you can go to different websites and click something and it will add it to your registry. This means that you could add Lowe’s or Home Depot gift cards to your registry and then use them for tools and toward project supplies. Just a thought.

Good Luck with your project! I know Mr. Luna and I have them going on all the time too – I am frugal and he’s a fixer 🙂

I would say Sears, they have a great tool selection. We had cousins that registered at Home Depot and we got them a gift card, Im not sure if the “registry” was just gift cards or if they were actually able to register for stuff.

I AM PISSED! Okay, that was kind of strong, but I just spent two hours at Home Depot dreaming about my wedding leaf blower (I know, I’m weird) and some other power tools I need for my garden/yard – and then came home ready to fill out the online gift registry.
After having no luck finding where to fill stuff out on the website, I called customer care and was told that they no longer do gift registries – but that the customer service rep would pass on the feedback to her manager that there is interest in opening the registry. Such a sad day.
I realize this post is 4 months old, but I just wanted to confirm that there isn’t an HD registry and say thank you to Bella for the idea about Amazon.com’s registry. I’ll be sure to check it out. . . .
