Nothing kills your momentum when you’re in the middle of a DIY job than having to stop and run to the store for a tool you don’t have. It can add hours to an otherwise simple job. Don’t make it harder than you need to, and don’t shell out a lot of money for a contractor to do easy jobs that you can do with a screwdriver and a pair of pliers.

We’ve rounded up all of the best tools you should have to handle all but the biggest DIY jobs.
