A Bad Workman Blames His Tools
We have all heard the old adage “A Bad Workman Blames His Tools” – The saying means that a bad workman will buy cheap shoddy tools, which are incapable of giving a good finish, where a good workman would invest a little bit more to get a better quality tool, to give a better quality job.
At DIY Doctor we recognise that money is tight, which is why we have been searching for a solution which allows you to buy tools that a good workman would be pleased to own, at a price that you can afford.
With our DIY Doctor Bargain Buckets we think we have cracked it – each bucket has the main tools you need for each job and the price is a very reasonable £45 + P&P.
Choose from our:
Decorating Bargain Bucket (which we have featured here)
Tiling Bargain Bucket

The Government has announced cashback deals for householders who intend to carry out energy-saving home improvements, under the Green Deal, from January next year.
Money will be made available on a first-come, first-served basis so providers should encourage customers to take up the deal sooner rather than later, in order to take advantage of this deal.
Government Energy Secretary Ed Davey said “The Green Deal also presents a great opportunity for businesses of all sizes to take advantage of this transforming market – and now is a critical time. Whatever your business does in this sector, the Green Deal will have an impact. So I say to businesses large and small – gear up, get training and get ready to take advantage of the Green Deal.”
Companies and Individuals who are interested in becoming authorised assessors and installers under the Green Deal Scheme can find out more by following this link to the Green Deal Oversight & Registration Body website or through one of the certification bodies.
Further details are available on the DECC website.
Hopefully this initiative will encourage consumers to commission work for the providers which in turn will save them them money on their energy bills by making their homes more energy efficient.
