When I went through my divorce many years ago, my -ex didn't leave me any tools.  So I went to Menards and I purchased a red tool box and picked up what I thought I would need for basic tools.  When I got re-married it is interesting that my tools have always been nicely organized in the red tool box and my husband put some in the garage and some in the laundry room and now he just uses my red tool box.  So when Mo came out with the image of the little girl with the red tool box, I just had to get it since this is exactly how I feel with mine.  I made a card that I am planning to give to my daughter as one her weekly college cards.
