In a way, you could say was blessed by getting them all in one shot, so I'm likely not going to have stellar advice for you. I inherited a large portion of my woodworking tools in 2009 from a good friend of mine I'd like to call a master craftsman. However, I'd gladly trade the tools off for one more day of watching Don use them.
Don was a very methodical man when it came to tools. He'd study the real need to buy whatever tool for whatever the projects were to be for months on end (all the while scrimping and saving to buy the best he could and buy it outright). As his wife told me after he passed away, he'd start planning the next major tool purchase on the trip home with his latest.

I never plan my days. "Premeditated" is a word Lawyers love to toss around in courtrooms.
