If you’re a home-owner or renter I’m sure you’ve had to call in maintenance people to fix something or other at some point. I’m very fortunate to have married a guy who is pretty handy. So, over the years he’s accumulated a pretty solid collection of tools that have helped us save a ton of money in home maintenance repairs.
Many home maintenance repairs are really quite simple to DIY. YouTube is a wonderful resource when it comes to teaching yourself how to fix just about anything.
Recently, my husband took to YouTube to learn how to unclog our dishwasher. After watching a couple of videos he was able to take apart the necessary parts, unclog the dishwasher and get it running as good as new. Most importantly, he saved us the cost of an expensive dishwasher repair service.
General household repairs however, require that you’re equipped with the right tools and gadgets to be able to properly fix whatever issue you’re dealing with. So, my husband has been kind enough to indulge me and create a solid list with explanations of the best tools to have in your collection. If you’re a savvy homeowner looking to cut costs and repair things yourself you really need to keep reading!

Have you ever heard of Harbor Freight Tools? We get almost all of our tools from there for a fraction of the price of name brand stuff. We bought our 12 inch double bevel miter saw for $125 with a coupon which would have easily been $350 at Home Depot or Lowes. I highly recommend Harbor Freight Tools.
Awesome! Thanks so much for sharing I’m going to let my husband know. He’s basically all set with tools. We’ve bought some used and others at heavily discounted prices!
I’ve always sworn by Stanley’s and DeWalt. Had the misfortune of buying the Ikea tools and regretted it the moment I used them.
Hahaha I understand the ikea thing. I learned my lesson the first time when I tried using their tools to build a dresser and nearly ruined it.
I’ve always used Dewalt and never had a problem.
Thanks for stopping by my wife’s blog.
The one tool I wouldn’t want to be without is ViseGrips. For many things I’ve done, they’re way better than any of the variety of pliers that I have.
