    Where in CT are you? My mother is in CT and has found good non-creepy handymen who work for $10/ hr.

    Talk to your neighbors. My neighbor helped me build a rather large deck this summer. If it's a male neighbor, Man Law requires beer for payment.

    Youll be amazed how far beer/pizza goes for a bribe to get some help. I help friends all the time with house/car repair projects.

    Offer to help your friends out with their projects, they will help you in kind. Best to get good natured friends, grouchy ones arent much fun, especially if the stress level rises.

    As for tools, shop at pawn shops/rummage sales. Quite a few people are out of work, and need to sell what they have tool-wise to get some money.
