    • Solution: Create a situation where you cannot lose
      • You tell the wife (or husband if hes the bitch) hey, honey, I was going to mow the lawn and the mower isnt cutting the way its supposed to. It looks all ragged. I think it may need a new blade but I could probably save some money by just sharpening it but I dont have that tool. Im gonna run and pick up a tool to save us some money, can I get you anything while Im out pumpkin?

    • Okay, first things first
      • Get your best cooler out and put it in the back of the truck
      • Drive to the local brew shop, get the beer and ice loaded
      • Head to your local Lowes (home depot or Sears if you prefer)
      • Get the kit on the next slide (only one with the particular tool you need in it)

    • First and foremost upon return: do not start drinking until after youve briefed the spouse
    • Explain how buying the kit actually saved you hundreds of dollars because you got all the other tools almost free
