To continue my series of household applications using Intercept to protect my personal belongings from rust/corrosion, mold and mildew, I present to you my backyard “Tent of Meeting”. Liberty Packaging sells Intercept packaging to numerous companies in the United States for the protection of their industrial goods. Intercept has allowed many manufacturers to ship and store products safely anywhere in the world. Due to my experimentation and success with home use of Intercept for unusual applications, I daresay I’ll soon be Intercept’s best proponent.

This post continues my series on how I have implemented Intercept protective films for my home owners possession protection and how Intercept has limited me from having to buy the same things at the home improvement stores over and over again. Let me tell you about my over 20-year-old air conditioner unit. It is on its last legs. This story is not about the A/C solely, actually it is more about the back-up portable fans I save for when the A/C is down and needs repair.

I am curious to know if anyone else suffers from a love/hate conflict with home improvement stores. I love visiting my local home improvement store, browsing all the terrific items, finding products to solve immediate problems and gathering ideas for my dreams of more atheistically pleasing convenience. My aversion lies in that there was once a time, not so long ago, when a home improvement store visit cost a $35.00 minimum. Now it seems to be $85.00. In fact, today’s purchase of two bags of lime, three small types of fertilizer, two cans of ant guard with tax totaled $87.50. This post is not meant to be a complaint, but is a perception based on my own experiences as a home owner for 26 years. More importantly, this story is about the changes I have made so that I frequent these stores less. Of course, most homeowners know that goal is difficult because the more things accumulated in our homes, the more items require maintenance, repair, and replacement. I have made the decision to protect my items so they don’t fail.
Cause and effect, action - reaction, push - pull; however you want to delineate it, some sort of change will cause transformations, both favorable and detrimental. What brought this thought on, you ask? I was executing my February home property inspection - a task surely effortless in this crisp 40 and 50 degree weather rather than in past years trouncing through feet of snow. This year’s winter weather has been a record breaker and unseasonably warm in New England. It feels as if we are living in Maryland or the Carolinas.
