When I bought my first house in May, my heart was full but my wallet was empty. The crush of a down payment left me with little extra cash to spend on tools for my new home – some of which I needed immediately.

I borrowed tools from friends and family until I caught my breath financially and could buy things for myself. Four months into life at my new home, I can tell you these are the 10 essential tools you’ll want.

Making the transition from renter to home owner means you can’t call a landlord to fix things anymore. Here’s what you need to get your must-have toolbox started.

1. Ladder

2. Circular Saw

3. Cordless Drill

4. Hammer

5. Garden Hose

6. Tape Measure

7. Level

8. Screw Drives

9. Pliers

10. Stud Finder
