Bought tool much from Homedepot.ca and ended up here

Hows it going, I am from Ontario and bought some tools I really no need right now. I plan on finishing my basement but that wont be till spring.

I have always been a sucker for good deals and Homedepot had some clearance deals going on.

One problem was my local HomeDepot was not listing the best price, so I have to set my phone to show a different Homedepot store and get them to price match. It took some talk but they did agree to it.

 

So for 179.00cnd + tax I got Hammer Drill, Impact Driver, Flash Light, Charger, 2 Batteries, Larger ToughSystem Box

Then I started looking into what I had bought and found Tools in Action YouTube channel. It seem the tools are entry level version and most are discontinued.The charger and 2 batteries where good versions and the cherry on top was the DS400 ToughSystem box

I watched all the Tools in Action to Dewalt ToughtSystem and started looking into cost of more when another deal from HomeDepot came up.

 

 

For 119.00 cnd + tax Driver/Drill, Impact Driver, Charger, 2 Batteries, Small ToughSystem box

The Impact Driver was the same version I had just bought, Drill was not much smaller then the Hammer Drill, the charger was not as good and the 2 batteries where also not as good as the first deal but I still bought it. One nice thing was the small DS150 Toughsystem box came with a insert for the tools, which the bigger one didn't come with.

 

I was feeling a bit of buyers remorse, I decided to sell of some of my the parts. I listed the Driver/Drill, 1 of my Impact Drivers, a charger and 1 of the smaller batteries on Kijiji.ca (it is like craigslist). I listed it for $130 I was hopping for $110 and that would give me some. In less then 24hr I had a few offers and got the full $130.

 

So after tax I spent $206.72cnd for a Hammer Drill, Impact Driver, Flash light, 3 batteries, Large and small ToughSystem. I felt good, I did spend money I didn't need to but really good value.

 

 

But then I started watching more Youtube Videos...

Thanks guys, that was not a the end of my buying spree.

 

 

I am married with baby, so instead of going out to eat on Valentine Day we went out a week before since it was much easier to get a baby sitter. I still was going to get my wife a gift, wheres a better place to find ideas for a gift for the wife then Tools in Action YouTube channel.

So for Valentines day I bought my wife a Dewalt Heated hoodie and flowers.

Thanks for the warm welcomes.

My wife does like the hoodie but have not had a use for it yet but we will be going to some Hockey Arenas to watch my Nephew and Niece play, it will be a good place to try it out.

 

 

Now I have 4 devices with 3 batteries but only 1 charger. I like to have home charger that stays in the same place and charger the goes with tool boxes.

 

As I had this big tool box, I was thinking about creating a permanent charger in the box. I already had a small USB powered bluetooth speaker, I would need buy a Power Bar, Dewalt Charger. With this setup I couldn't charger anything like my phone or the Bluetooth off the Dewalt batteries, with more looking I found the Dewalt does have a USB chargers powered by the batteries.

I would need to drill a hole in my new tool box and find a good way to mount everything and it would cost me over $100.

 

Then back on Youtube the for reveiw of the DeWALT ToughSystem Music. I started looking around for it in Canada, I found a decent price put it was still well over $200. It would cost more money then the tools I had bought, but I still ordered it.

 

My justification was that I do play good number of out pick up outdoor sports when the weather is better, I could use the music system during those times. I have not gotten it yet but I am hopping it is worth the money.
