I love tools. Hand tools, power tools, garden tools, I love them all equally. If it fixes or can be used to build something, I own it. I didn't buy them all at once. It took me many years and several brands to finally get my collection together because the price of tools can be outrageous sometimes.
I would wait for Black Friday, store sales,clearances, and even bought second-handed tools at garage sales to get started back in the day. Now a days more and more stores other than hardware and home centers are creating and selling budget friendly tools for the average home owner and DYI-er. Wish that was around when I was a teenager. Check out Wal-marts new line of HART tools.
You know what's next....when will Target get their line of power tools?
