I am a do it yourselfer around my house if it is somthing I can do as it cost so much today just to get sombody to come fix even the smallest thing. You talk to a repair person by phone and they want a hundred dollar's up just to make a house call and then repair's are added on top of that. So I collect. My wife like's to go to yardsale's and the flea market and look around and I do too. I look for box's or jar's of nut's and bolt's, screw's and nail's. Tool's or just about anything that I think might come in handy at some point. You cant go to the store and just buy the one thing you need anymore you have to buy a whole box. Guy's alway's call each other when they are working on somthing too to try to save buying a bunch of stuff. Hey do you have a two foot piece of 2x4 laying around or such and such size bolt and nut so we save each other a little money. But when my wife stick's her head inside the shed to try to find somthing I know there is a fussing comming and I really dont understand why, The shed is mine and I dont fuss at her about the 22 pair's of shoe's she has spread out in three closet's that dont get worn. At least I use my stuff.
