Sunday Morning at Our Place of Worship

Just dropping off our tithe at our place of worship. You know the place whose motto is “You can build it. We can help by taking all of your disposable income.”

    Ha. If it’s more than 10%, isn’t it really an offering? :)

  2. Tracy D says:

    That tickled me so bad I laughed out loud. Thanks for the giggle!

  3. Stephanie says:

    Ahh, yes. They take our tithe as well.

  4. liz says:

    love it!

  5. Anna says:

    Ahhh! Worship at the alter of the Depot…smart to train ‘em young. Surely they must have some sort of punch card system for you…renovate 5 bathrooms get a laundry room free? No? Shameful!

  6. suburbancorrespondent says:

    Really? Only a tenth? I think we give these guys way more than that.

  7. Dot says:

    That’s where we worship too!!!

    Do tell - what are you working on now???? We are currently looking to put hardwood in our bedroom, I could just faint at the prices.

  8. salsaqueen says:

    Ha! We worship at the same place! And we gave our tithe yesterday as well.

    The front of my under oven drawer fell off the other day, so we had to get something to fix it. Otherwise, it will look like redneck trailer trash lives here!

  9. Brigitte says:

    Sometimes I feel like the place is so big, my daughter will get lost, living in the forgotton corners like those little birds that always seem to get lost in there.

  10. Amy says:

    Yes, we dropped off a tithe at that place yesterday as well. Know that place quite well.

  11. jody says:

    Would this mean that the cabinets are going it?

  12. CathyC says:

    HA! and for a minute I thought you were at the Children’s Museum!

  13. Nicki says:

    We were finally able to give up that place of worship as we moved, but sometimes I feel a little lost as we yet to replace it with a new place. Maybe Ikea?

  14. aimee says:

    Love it! My hubby goes through withdrawl if he doesn’t stop there at least once a week. Last Friday evening he went “just to walk around”.

  15. Bekah says:

    At bedtime my two year old typically requests that we “talk Lucy’s day” or “talk Lucy’s friends”. After spending both Saturday and Sunday morning at HD this weekend, her bedtime request was to “talk Home Depot.”

  16. Alisa says:

    I feel like I must confess my sins. Dear Depot Lord, we had to visit the “local” place of worship yesterday. As any human would, I’m going to place the real blame at your feet…you didn’t have the bushes I needed for my landscaping.

    Your humble do it herselfer forever
    (Thank you for allowing me to be sin free once again!)

  17. Scylla says:

    Oh my! Is that why I feel compelled to spend so much money there? I didn’t realize it was the Church of Home Improvement, but it makes so much more sense!

  18. balconygal says:

    This cracked me up as I read the words in my reader and so thought you were talking about helping to build the church with your disposable income. Then I came and saw the pic and almost peed. I like going there on Friday nights by meself b/c it’s very quiet. If they only had wireless hook up I’d be there all the time.

  19. Jamie AZ says:

    Ah yes, the weekend tithing. Ours this weekend was at the altar of Costco, but with a backyard to landscape soon, we’ll be back at THD soon.

  20. judi says:

    yes, we have been worshipping there for years. it is a sunday morning ritual. and of course, no trip to Home Depot is complete without the necessary follow-up trip to Home Depot, after you realize that what you first purchased does not in any way fit what was needed.

  21. Angie says:

    We are members as well! I no longer feel so awful about the money we spend there. I now know I am just a very religous home improver!!

    Thanks for the laugh-

  22. Caroline Bingham says:

    I’m so glad my days there are numbered…. Damn these home additions!

  23. Ruth H says:

    Sooo… offering up one of the kids, eh?

  24. Ann says:

    AAhhh, glad to see I’m not the only broke worshipper. Hope we get to see whatever new project you have in the works. You show me yours and I’ll show you mine.

  25. Carolynn from Western Australia says:

    Here in Aus we have a place that sounds somewhat similar, Bunnings and they most certainly have had their fair share of our income over the years. They are literally less than 5 mins drive from home. Mind you it is a fascinating place to look around, Sooooo many gadgets, and soooooo many things for the garden.

    Take Care
    Love Carolynn xxx :-)

  26. jen says:

    It’s not a weekend without at least one trip to the Depot! LOL!

  27. Cate says:

    If we tithe there, is it tax deductible? Because if it is, I am so getting a refund.

  28. stacie says:

    When we were building our house we called it Home Despot instead.

  29. Shannon says:

    Once upon a time I would have wondered how people could spend SO much money at that store and its twin.
    And then we bought a house. Do I have to tell you how excited I was to find a $10 coupon for Lowes in the paper?

  30. Scout's honor says:

    Heck, we bought stock in the company when we bought our first house and realized we were going there almost daily for 3 months straight.

  31. Pickel says:

    Ah, we have been there many times this week. And its way more than 10% with a 1917 bungalow.
