      THE BEST WAYS TO SAVE ON TOOLS:

      The ultimate best way to save money on tools, I would say, is to NEVER lend them
      to your friends and neighbors. They never seem to make it back to your toolbox,
      do they? Then you have to go out and
      buy some more, because you can’t remember who you lent them to, and if you do
      ask your neighbor to return them, well, chances are he or she hasn’t a clue. (At
      least that’s been our experience with tool-lending in times past.)

      But if you do want to be Mr. or Mrs. Nice Guy to your neighbors, (because
      someday you may need to borrow something from them) there is a quick thing you
      can do to help get your tools returned to your own toolbox:

      Paint your initials in big letters on them in obnoxious, glow-in-the-dark paint
      colors! The letters will stand out like a screaming sore thumb on your
      neighbor’s workbench and will be a loud reminder to get them back to you. Make
      them so ugly, he can’t wait to return them! Also, the tools will be easy to spot
      if left outside, by YOU or your neighbor. Give it a try!
