Tools are expensive–very, very expensive. There’s a reason your dad always told you to put those pliers back in his toolbox when you were through using them, and that’s because of how much it costs to replace them! But your dad didn’t have the dollar store to turn to for cheaper replacements. These days, you’ll find a large (and ever-expanding) selection of tools at the dollar store. We’re continually surprised by what shows up on their tool shelf! The best part is, the savings over big box home improvement stores is massive. While not every item you’ll find is investment grade, you won’t mind, because $1 isn’t much of an investment!
