My wife works at Sears, I get a discount and besides, I'm supporting her employer.

wow, lots of tools folks here. My problem is that I go to home depot or Lowe's and I've already got something similar to 98% of their tools - although I did notice they were selling off a really cool mini skid-steer loader from their rental yard the other day - I need one of those.

I usually need to get to a more specialized store to buy more tools - I buy quite a few on Amazon.

That could get expensive

Oh hey, this just occurred to me
As it's tax time once again, I just wanted to remind everyone:
I get to write off tools as a business expense
