Steph built a trailer!
When I bought a new car three years ago, we had a hitch installed with the idea that at some point we'd buy a utility trailer to tow. That way, we could easily bring home sheets of plywood and lumber.
Steph happened to see a folding utility trailer in her friend's garage and was instantly interested. A folding trailer would solve the storage problem associated with trailers.
She did the research and off to Harbor Freight we went to buy the trailer and accessories.
I would suggest watching the video of the build as this tutorial will only touch on the highlights.
Steph's backyard is small and is totally shaded by large oak trees thus no grass grows back there. The ground is covered with pea gravel in lieu of grass which creates a problem when you try to rake leaves.
Steph researched a solution and decided this Ryobi battery powered leaf vacuum/mulcher would be a good choice to deal with the leaf cleanup problem in the backyard.
When doing projects that require caulk or construction adhesive, we rarely use up an entire tube. We've tried various means of storage in the hope that we can use the tube for another project. Our efforts to keep the product from drying out have failed time and time again, which led Steph to search out a better option.
Read on or watch the video to see what we tried and what we ultimately discovered really worked to keep the contents of the tube from drying out!

While once again using a plastic scraper we got from Amazon in yet another project, we got to thinking we needed to share our other favorite Amazon "must have" tools. We put together a list of five tools we find ourselves using time after time on projects--that are all under $20! There's a bonus tool that comes in at $27 that we've had since Sears was in the business of selling tools!
