While higher-quality tools will often cost more, you can actually save money and still get top-notch durability and performance by choosing a tool that multitasks rather than buying many separate tools. “Additional benefits and features just make life easier,” Talbot says. A good example of a multitasking tool is the HYDE 5-in-1 Painter's Tool. This single tool opens paint cans, widens cracks for patching, doubles as a paint scraper or putty knife, and removes wet paint from a roller. Not only will you save money by buying a high-quality multipurpose tool instead of five (or more) individual tools to do the same work, you won’t have to lug around a lot of heavy tools in your tool belt—and you’ll get years of dependable service.
