Don't wing it at the hardware store

I was plumbing a bathroom/laundry room addition and guessed at what I'd need in the way of copper tubing and connectors during a quick stop in town. I brought it all home and set to work, not realizing until most of it was soldered together that I didn't have the right elbows and tees to make the layout work. I had to redo an entire wall of pipes.
