Shop the Dollar Store

Shop the dollar store rather than your local home center to buy specialty tools you may use only once or twice for projects such as cable or phone wiring.

Cost: $1 per item.

Savings: $25 for curved long-nose pliers and $20 for a coaxial compression crimper at The Home Depot.

Bonus: No worries if tools break.
