I'm putting together a small, essentials-only toolkit that I can keep in the laundry room. This is meant for small tasks around the house. Please offer suggestions for better options, or tools that I've missed.
*Tool belt (in which to keep everything)
*universal screwdriver (one of those with the reversible pieces, so that you can drive large/small phillips (cross-head) or regular (flat-head) screws)
*pliers (I'm using a small robogrip)
*stud finder (kinda redundant....)
*electrician's scissors (still need to purchase; I lost my last pair somewheres)
*roll of masking tape
*roll of electrical tape
*small bottle of gorilla glue
*box-o-small-parts (some nails, wall anchors, etc.)
Maybe that is what my quite small wire cutter is called, DD, my big one being more hefty like a good pliers. I didn't think of that.

If you haven't fixed it with duct tape, you haven't used enough duct tape.

6 inch shifting spanner AKA shifter AKA boxhead wrench.
A gimlet, which consists of a cross handle holding a metal shaft with a screw point, is used for boring small holes will save you a LOT of time going out to the shed to get the drill running extension cords
In your box of bits include some spare curtain hooks of whatever size style you have in use and whatever eyelets attatch the hooks to the curtain rail
