Why I like it: still a good idea. This principle helped us a lot while we worked on our new house. We could never have afforded all the tools we needed but friends graciously loaned many. (And we're quite a bit more trustworthy with power tools these days.)
What I'd change now: more pictures. (I know, I say that every time.) And I'd probably make it a clearer list.
How about you? Do you have a post from days gone by that you would like your readers to see?
