Outdoor Lighting and Boars Head

Do I really need to buy brand name when it comes to outdoor lighting?

Having four kids can take a beating not only me, but everything else in their path. The latest casualty was one of the door handles on my car. After eight years of kids pulling on them, one finally broke. I went to the auto part store and ordered what we’ll call a “value” replacement part, and soon enough, the broken handle was fixed at a very low cost.

However, this “value”...

What do Bass Pro and Kichler Light Pro Rewards have in common?

How many of you shop around for credit cards based on the “extra” benefits you may receive? Points earned for travel, dining, gift cards, even cash back? I know my husband uses his Bass Pro Shops MasterCard, (which we nicknamed “Bass”terCard) for points that he has redeemed on new hunting and fishing gear, and most recently, a new camp chair for me.

Best Way to Sell Landscape Lighting- Perfect the Skill of Listening
