9 Top Picks From Home Depot's Memorial Day Sale to Keep You Busy This Summer


The extra long days of summer can feel a little too long after a while — there are only so many ways to entertain yourself when it's a thousand degrees outside. But the downtime is a perfect opportunity to do all those things you never seem to have time for during the rest of the year.

Whether that means completing projects or making your own seasonal fun, Home Depot has you covered as it cuts up to 37% off a selection of patio furniture, grills, garage storage, tools, and more during its Memorial Day Sale until May 31. Shipping starts at $5.99, or get free shipping with orders of $45 or more. (Oversize items may incur additional fees; in-store pickup is also available for most items.) Here are 9 items suited to various summer activities.
