Harbor Freight Finds!

Harbor Freight, Uncategorized
Have you ever been to Harbor Freight?   I love Harbor Freight.  Of course 99% of the items are made in China.  It is so hard to find anything these days that isn't made in China.   It is a great place to find inexpensive tools.   I find so many hand tools that I can use for organization, and crafts. At this particular trip, I went in and got this very nice measuring tape for FREE with the store coupon!  (I believe a purchase was necessary.)  I also got a pack of my favorite 22 pack clamp set for $1.99.  They were on sale.  These clamps are fantastic to use all over the house.  I use them as chip clips, veggie clips, clothing clips, and so much more.  Recently, my daughter…
