If you are going to attempt to repair some parts of your home yourself, such as mount a shelf to a wall or fix a loose screw, you should have a toolbox in your home filled with versatile tools to complete these simple tasks. Although you may not want to spend a significant amount of money on tools, investing in ones of higher quality could save you some grief in the long run.

Here are some essential tools you should purchase for your toolbox at home:

  • Tape measure
  • Level
  • Phillips screwdriver
  • Flathead screwdriver
  • Claw hammer
  • Adjustable socket wrench
  • Locking/Vise grip pliers
  • Needle Nose pliers
  • Circular handsaw
  • Box cutter
  • Utility knife
  • Handheld electric drill
  • Toothbrush to easily clean dirt that might be in the way of successfully repairing something
  • Eye protection goggles: this is most likely the most important tool you could have in your toolbox
  • Always have the business card of a reliable, professional handyman in your toolbox. Sometimes you may feel that you would save money by repairing or restoring parts of your home by yourself, but a professional might even save you money in the future since they bring experience to the table.
