Tuesday Savings on the Homestead: Sharpen Your Garden Tools!

Every Tuesday I will be posting a Tuesday Savings on the Homestead. This posts will concentrate on one money saving thing you and I can do to save money for the week. Some will be easy, some will be be a bit difficult, and all will concentrate on one way to save money for the week. Please join me in trying to live a frugal life in 2015!



One of the best things you can do for yourself and your garden is to sharpen your tools that you use in the garden. Planting becomes easier with a sharp trowel. Weeding becomes easier with a sharp hoe. Harvesting becomes easier with a sharp knife.

Life is easier with sharp tools. And I may not just mean garden tools on that one. 

However, today we are talking about garden tools.

You can sharpen your tools in many ways. I have an electric knife sharpener set I was given as a gift that has been a life saver. You can use a file to sharpen your tools. You can use or borrow a bench grinder to sharpen your tools like I did for a number of years. I just brought my tools to work and sharpened them after work. 

By sharpening your garden tools, you save yourself time and energy. Planting, weeding, and harvesting becomes so much easier for you and your body. Imagine yourself just slicing right into the dirt instead of hacking at it repeatedly. By saving yourself time and energy, you can devote yourself to other jobs or just relax!

Get this done this week! You will be much happier with sharper tools!
