On Our Radar:
TAGS: You're It!
Posted by:  Emily Doutre

Because most leases forbid painting, many renters often adopt the attitude that if they can't change their wall color, they might as well not change anything else in their apartment. But there are so many improvements that can be made while still staying within the boundaries of a lease. And there is a wealth of inspiration to be had by visiting a good hardware store like TAGS. You probably don't need siding and lumber, so instead of Home Depot, head to TAGS, which is more like "Apartment Depot" (to borrow a phrase). They cover all the basics you could possibly need--from tools, keys, hardware, and electrical supplies to storage, shelving, decorating supplies, and a huge houseware department, in a vast two-floor space. TAGS is also a great one-stop-stop for seasonal items like air conditioners and Christmas tree stands. Their salespeople are actually competent and friendly. It is truly a joy to stop there, and I always come home skipping. TAGS' slogan is, "If you rent an empty apartment at 9 am, you can fill it with the basics by 5 pm at TAGS!" I have put this guarantee to the test: and it is true.
