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!
1 – Gloves
No home improvement project begins without all the protective supplies you’ll need. And gloves are a key protector in most projects. Now you won’t have to feel bad if you get paint on your gloves–you can easily grab a new pair at the dollar store without breaking the bank!
2 – Ratchet Screwdriver
We were very excited to spot this item at the dollar store! Ratchet screwdrivers are very handy for a wide variety of home improvement projects, from putting together that new bookshelf you bought to fixing your kitchen cabinet doors.
