When I started out doing odd jobs and DIY around the house, I needed some tools, and most of us have "hand me downs" from family members.
The number of tools you can get from any hardware store is just staggering, and there is a tool for nearly every job. I wanted to share what I have in my tool bag as a beginner or novice DIY and help anyone who wants to get started. Here are some of my essential items for your tool bag;
Regarding the budget or how much you should spend, it's a personal choice, and most of my tools are at the budget end, such as screwdrivers, mallets, etc....but for the power tools, I do like Bosch (again, personal choice).
I would have to say that the most used tool for me is the cordless drill, then the measuring tape. Cheers everyone.
Thank you so much for sharing your knowledge and advice on such a great topic. Those who are just starting their D.I.Y. journey will find this guide very useful. I totally agree with you that the tape measure is one of the most indispensable tools you've got to have in your tool bag. My first hand-me-down tool was a folding ruler that I still have in my toolbox.
Thank you for sharing this part of your journey into D.I.Y.
