My first purchase was a RedMax backpack blower which cost $430. I bought it at the end of summer for leaf cleanups. I remember the day my dad stopped at the dealer for me on his way home from work and picked it up. Then for some reason i told a girl at school i had to pay my dad $400 bucks for something he picked up for me and paid with his credit card because i didn't have one. She thought i was crazy and couldn't imagine why i'd be spending $400 bucks on a tool at such a young age. If only she knew where it's taken me, lol.

In one of your pics. you made a new mulch bed around what looked to be a tree stump, what did you use for that? Brown Bed Edger? Also, I know this will probably sound stupid but... where do you get those small green trash cans from?

Thanks
Ryan
I cut that with my Little Wonder walk behind power edger. You can get those trash barrells at Home Depot for $50 each. They are very durable and usefull though. I have 6 of them.

I noticed your lawn sings. What are they made of and how well do they help up? Thinking of getting some and noticed yours.

How far off are you from buying yourself a brand new truck, one like your dads? My neighbor bought a brand new truck when he got out of high school but that was 30 years ago, and he keeps bugging me about me buying a brand new truck, but that ain't gonna happen, but you seem to be doing fairly well.

I'd like to keep my truck i have and get a 1 ton dump truck. Hopefully before next summer. I need to get one but also need to be able to afford it and support the cost of owning one.
