Green Tip: Rent Tools, Don’t Buy

Ahh, yes, I remember when I got my first cordless drill – so exciting – free to drill anywhere, anytime. Since then, my BF and I have been slowly gathering a nice hardware and tool collection, but have room for only so much. So we were excited when we received a nice tip on where to rent gadgets in Chicago…

Tipre Hardware will rent customers a variety of tools such as bolt cutters and saws as well as many power tools like sanders, drills, carpet cleaners. Tool rental runs about $20-$25/day.

Not only will renting save space, but it will also save money and decrease the amount of emissions and materials needed to make the additional tools.

Have you opted to rent instead of buy for your home repair projects? How’s your experience been?
