So I can find all 750 hammers I’ve bought over the last decade, but I can’t find any of the wood planes.

OK, so it’s my own fault for still not being unpacked ten months after moving in here, but that doesn’t mean I can’t grump about it.

It’s off to the Big Orange Republican Box to buy my fifth or sixth plane... [EDIT: Actually, I decided not to fund the Party of Nixon and took the extra half-hour to go to the Lowes.]

Oh, yeah. Let me tell you about seventeen small hardware store bags full of pretty much the same assortment of plaster screws, wallboard patches, and mesh tape. It's now assembled in one spot where I can more conveniently lose it all at once.

And what the heck is it with fasteners, anyway? I've been assembling them from various parts of the house, and we seem to have a box of just about every possible size and configuration.

Don't worry! You'll find all the planes!

Of course, when you find them you will be searching in vain for one of your 750 hammers......
