When we closed on our house two years ago, I was excited to tackle all the home improvement projects that we had on our list... but what I didn't realize was how many tools we'd accumulate throughout the process of accomplishing those projects.

So if you're in the market to invest in some tools for your arsenal, here's where your money will probably be best spent.
If you live in the United States, there's a lot of cultural pressure to become a homeowner. It's an official part of the American Dream™, and most people consider it a natural progression in the steps to growing up and becoming a real 'adult'.

This recycled wreath project (super easy and cheap) is only a reenactment of one of the very first DIY homeowner projects I pulled off successfully.
