Here are my top ten tools every woman should have in her toolbox, plus a few more that I particularly love and use all the time!
Before my married days, I had the following conversation with a guy I was dating:
Guy: “So I want to hang these curtains.”
Me: “Cool. Grab your drill and let’s get to work.”
Guy: “Uh, I don’t have a drill.”
Me: “Oh. Well then. Let me grab my drill.” Later: “Okay, let’s see if it’s a stud or if we’re going to need some anchors.”
Guy: *blink blink*
Needless to say, it didn’t work out. My hubs now has more tools than you can shake a stick at, which is awesome. But despite having a guy who can help me with all sorts of things, I still like to be handy myself. Knowing I can build it, fix it, install it, or replace it makes me feel like a capable woman. It’s empowering!
Want to feel capable and empowered yourself? Here are my top ten tools that any woman should have in her toolbox. And I mean real tools. Not that wimpy pink hardware set you get for $20. Go out and buy yourself some real, quality tools and learn how to use them. You might be surprised on how much you enjoy it, too
