As you all know, I keep killing all my plants…I’ve already been through 3 fiddle figs and 3 succulents this year. Maybe it’s that I have a very dark house, or maybe it’s that I smother my plants. Regardless, I finally just decided to buy some fake plants. After all, maybe these plants will be motivation to try AGAIN and actually keep one alive. Maybe?
Okay, I’m not a big shopper, but I DID round up just a few of my favorite things for this holiday season.
My Most Purchased DIY Item
5 Tools Every DIYer Needs (these are the only tools I own):
***RYOBI is having a BUY a tool get one Free at Home Depot. Check out this link for details.*** Here are some Home Depot deals below.
You can get this drill and nail gun kit combo for $51 off. The nail gun is battery operated and doesn’t even need an air compressor. I use a drill and nail gun on almost every project.
Here is a miter saw for $100 off. It can even slide to accommodate wider boards. I use one to cut all my boards.
Kreg Jig(Optional but LIFE CHANGING): This tool is so cool because it allows you to attach boards with hidden holes so the finished project looks nicer (and it makes joints stronger). This is a must if you ever get into building built ins or basic furniture. This is the exact set I’ve had for 8 years and loved.

I wish I had a huge assortment of tools and a huge gorgeous garage workshop. The truth is, I am using the most basic versions of just a few tools and I mostly work on my garage floor…BUT, I’ve still been able to get by building built-ins, wall moldings, shelves, furniture etc. with just 5 power tools. So here’s a quick list of the ONLY 5 TOOLS YOU REALLY NEED to get going on almost any home improvement project.
