Pink Tool Sets to Fight Breast Cancer

When a company comes along and does something wonderful, it's hard for me to hold back from singing their praises...

Such is the case with Little Pink Tools. They are best known for the various hand tools, power tools, tool sets, and tool kits designed for women. What impresses me most about this company though is that they have put together a program where, for each tool purchased, they are donating 10% of the proceeds towards breast cancer research with hopes of finding a cure.

What a wonderful idea - get a good tool kit to help at home and provide tools for women everywhere to help in the elimination of breast cancer.

If you're in the market for tool sets designed for women, I would encourage you to give these a close look and support a company that supports you.

Tool Kits Back-to-School College Tip

Where did the summer go? Back to school is in full swing and if we don't move fast it will be behind us.

I won't be going into the usual spiel of ways to prepare for your child's needs. Instead I'm going to talk about what to do for them as they head off to college. This is a bit different cause they'll be on their own and it's probably the first time they'll have been away from the safety and comfort of the home you've provided for them all their life.

It's a bit scary, huh? I know I was very uncomfortable when Shelly went off to school. As parents, we're so used to watching over them that when it comes time to let them loose on their own it sets a new standard for not being able to sleep at night. I marvel at the courage my parents had to let go. I couldn't even fathom what it was gonna be like until I was in those shoes.

Ok, so how can we help them take this next step? Hopefully we've done a good job of teaching them how to take care of themselves and make good decisions. To give them an added hand, how bout sending them off with a general tool set and some reading material on self protection?

A tool set like the Denali 115 piece, will come in real handy and help them to break the ice with their new dorm mates as well; sort of a safe way for them to meet new people and size them up when they will surely ask to borrow some tool. Send the advise that they not lend those tools out, but instead go help. That way they hold on to the tools and make friends at the same time.

Then make sure they know how to protect themselves with a good book on self protection. We may know a few of the tricks, but not half as many as are in the book Protect Yourself At College. Every student heading off to college needs to learn how to protect themselves, their surroundings, and their possessions.

These are two gifts you can give that will help you sleep better at night and give your daughter or son a good leg up.

Women can Repair, not replace it - With the right Pink Tools on Hand

There's no doubt that this economy has stressed budgets to the breaking point. Nearly everyone I've talked to has a story to tell about something they have needs replacing.

The truth of the matter is that for so long we have become accustomed to replacing something instead of repairing it.

True, many items just aren't manufactured with repair in mind but many things around the house can be fixed with the right tools.

Once you invest in a good quality tool, there's a good chance that tool will last you a lifetime. Tools are an investment, not and expense and will pay for themselves over and over again.

Car Problems? Jumpstart your on the road safety with these tools for Women drivers

Got a call from my daughter the other night and she was stuck at work with a dead battery. I ran over with the jumper cables and in a matter of minutes she was ready to go.

I told her, in typical 'Dad' fashion, "You should get yourself a pair of jumper cables". "No Dad" she said, "It's not safe for a girl to use those". Huh? What? How is using a set of jumper cables unsafe? After she explained it to me I understood.

Using jumper cables requires someone else to be included - you have to get a jump from someone. Unless you know this someone, you're placing yourself in a potentially unsafe situation. OK, so how do we find a solution?

Actually, the answer was pretty easy... A POWERPACK. This is just like having a spare battery along with you. You hook the thing up to the battery and wal-la, you have a jump. This pack includes outlets to power 110volt appliances, a built-in emergency radio, and safety light.

No father likes to think about his little girl being stranded somewhere all alone... But now I feel better knowing the next time she needs a jump, she won't have to get a stranger involved - just one step closer to self independence.

Strategic Plan for Spring Cleanup

Warmer days and longer stretches of sunshine mean its time to get started with all those spring cleaning projects around the house.

What's on your list? Mine never seems to end. As I scratch one item off, two more get added.

No matter what that list holds, the important thing to remember is that the easiest and safest way to go about tackling any project around the house and yard is to make sure you have the right tool for the job.

Now, I know that we can't go out and buy every single tool we need (at least not all at once), so some planning is in order. Is there a number of projects that need doing that would require the same, or similar tools?

For instance, if you got a good sturdy step ladder you could change that light bulb without having to stand on a rickety chair. You could also change the batteries in the smoke and carbon monoxide detectors. Get that unsightly spider web out of the corner of the room. Reach that screen that needs repair. Dust the fan blades on the ceiling fan. Put those items above the garage rafters and get them off the floor and out of the way...

See what I'm talking about here? With just one tool, you'd be able to get a whole lot done. I'll bet that with one or two good screwdrivers, a hammer, and a couple of plier sets you could wipe a whole bunch off that list.

My point is this: you don't need to spend a fortune to accomplish a lot. Start small and get those tools that will give you the most bang for the buck. Then as time goes by you can slowly add to your tool box. Tools don't eat, they don't spoil, and they can give you years of service. Putting a few dollars towards some good quality tools is an INVESTMENT that pays off big dividends throughout their lifetime.
