    I applied for credit from Ferris and got $7000 but was on the ropes about buying one. You obviously like it. Should I go for it?

    I was about to say my hand tools. Shovels, rakes, pruners, etc. Replacement is cheap, maintenance is cheap. They are my best investment.:)

    My calculator.

    I've seen too many people figure wrong on the amount of material needed. With material costs and trucking so high nowadays, this has allowed me to minimize waste, avoid cost overruns, and maximize profits.
