After coming up empty in my search for a step stool at Linens ‘n Things and Home Depot yesterday, I visited Lowe’s today. When I finally found the correct aisle, I looked for the kind of stool I wanted.
Remember those round things librarians used to use years ago? Lowe’s didn’t have that kind, but they did have a variety of step stools. Unfortunately, the weight limits were low. The highest limit was 300 pounds, but it was a full-fledged step ladder, for which I have no room in my kitchen. The smaller step stools also had the lowest weight limit. At 255 pounds, my husband wouldn’t have been able to use those stools! What’s up with that?
