Black Friday savings continue… now thru Christmas! Stop in for Christmas gifts… electronics, small appliances, home decor!
Each and every holiday season we are reminded of the abundance of gifts we are given. For the 5th Christmas season, with the help of our community, we at Cullen’s Home Center will donate meals to local families in need. A portion of the proceeds of purchases made in our store will go towards a meal. We hope you will join us this year in keeping Christ in Christmas.
We are 4 days away to huge savings! This Black Friday and Small Business Saturday we will be opening at 8 am. Stop by for big savings in all areas of our store. Check out our ad in the Thanksgiving Day Shopper!
Take a minute out of your day today to thank a Veteran. On this Tuesday, November 11th, we publicly thank them for their abundance of sacrifices. No doubt it is a selfless act to “serve” (in general), but what our Veterans have done for us certainly defines selflessness. We may not know first hand what each and every man or woman who has served our country has gone through, nor do we want to experience that, so the least we can do is acknowledge their time and efforts.
From all of us at Cullen’s Home Center, thank you. Thank you from the bottom of our hearts. Our country indeed is a better place to live because you have fought for our freedom. Young or old, man or woman… each and every one of you had a role that was vital and helped us as American individuals.

We at Cullen’s Home Center believe on improving the skills within us. Because we only know what we know, we look to resources and help. One of our favorite resources we use is John Maxwell. A leadership guru, he has helped shape us and teach us. Whether is has been thru videos, seminars, or books, this man has taught us about the subject of leadership. If you aren’t familiar with John Maxwell, we encourage you to.
John Maxwell’s Advice On Quitting
When to quit:
(1) Quit something you don’t do well to start something you do well.
(2) Quit something you’re not passionate about to do something that fills you with passion.
(3) Quit something that doesn’t make a difference to do something that does.

Who knew there were so many to choose from? There are incandescent bulbs, candelabra bulbs, flourescent (or CFL’s), halogen, LED, xenon bulbs….. and the list goes on. Most of us are used to using the standard A19 base incandescent bulbs- the biggest decision we had to make was whether we wanted 25 watt, 40, 60, 75 or 100watt. Well, the days of using incandescent bulbs are officially numbered.
In 2007, Congress passed the Energy Independence and Security Act. This would force manufacturers to over time stop production on incandescent bulbs, beginning with 100 watt and moving down the list from there. 100 watt and 75 watt are obsolete today (unless stores purchased stock) and as of January 1st, 2014 60 watt and 40 watt have been omitted as well.
Where does that leave us? LED’s. Although the investment is GRAND up front, you should never have to change an LED in your lifetime, or at least not more than once. LED’s are much more energy efficient and overall better for our environment. Our recommendation: Don’t wait until all of your incandescent bulbs burn out– start now!Replace them one by one. Perhaps, one a month. It wont seem to hurt the pocketbook quite as bad that way.
Check out this great article for more information on finding the right bulb for your home. Be sure to watch the video, it will help you understand the bulb “lingo” better!
