your basic toolbox


Here is what you need to keep on hand for basic home maintenance and repairs. I am not talking about renovations, but about items that will come in handy for most day-to-day needs.

All of these items can be purchased at your local hardware or home building store. Most are modestly priced.

Tools and supplies for your basic toolbox:

  • cordless drill (with drill and screwdriver bit sets) – your most expensive item
  • screwdriver sets: Robertson (square) and Phillips (star) and Slot (flat), various sizes
  • claw hammer
  • adjustable wrench
  • pliers set
  • picture hanging kit
  • level (torpedo)
  • tape measure
  • variety of nails & screws
  • utility knife
  • safety goggles
  • caulking gun and caulking

Cool additional items to keep on hand: a putty pencil or DAP, magic eraser, stain markers, goo gone and glue.

Tools and supplies also make great housewarming gifts! xo
