Basics

For my first post I am going to cover a few basics. There are a few key items I suggest you acquire if you are going to make hanging out with Mary a regular thing. She tends to be a little needy. I will also provide links for some items that I suggest that I have used and can vouch for.

Storage

You're going to want something that is airtight, waterproof, and relatively easy to put away. You can get very creative with this. In the past I have known people to used small mason jars, Vicks Vapor Rub containers, and specially designed herb jars. Now, this doesn't have to be expensive and honestly there is no need to spend a ton of money. Stay tuned and I will show you a few clever ways to hide your stash and your tools.

Tools

Some of you may ask what tools could you need? Well, if you get into the lifestyle there is some work involved that will require a few tools. If you like to make your own smoking devices then tools will become a necessity. I am going to list a few with a short description of what you may use it for.

  • Brushes: You are going to want small brushes with a varying degree of bristle size. Mainly you'll want a fine brush and course one. Paint brushes are good for this. The fine brush will be used for "sweeping" or collecting your smokeables, mainly the finer pieces. The course one will be used for cleaning your devices and other tools.
  • Pocket knife: For this I will suggest a swiss army knife. They usually come with a few things that you will find extremely useful. These include: tweezers, a little toothpick, a knife, a corkscrew, scissors, and various other tools you'll no doubt find a use for. I will put a post up with uses for a swiss army knife later, that can get pretty in depth. 
  • Container: You're definitely going to want a container that you can keep all of your tools in. This will help keep them from getting lost, you can store them all together, and you have a second place to store you're smokeables. 
  • Soldering Iron: This can make your tools list a little expensive BUT if you like to make homemade smoking devices, this will be a god send. It makes holes in plastic efficiently and quickly without having to worry about stabbing through whatever you are using or yourself. This one is entirely optional. 

Gadgets

Here I'm going to provide a list of cool gadgets for you to check out that are not necessary but are cool to have and honestly can be very helpful. These links are good, and if you want to get them online will be the cheapest. This scale is not as good as I would normally recommend;however, this is a good one. Normally you would want one that is 10g x 0.001g but they can get expensive and you usually will get what you pay for. The grinder kit is by no means anything special. I listed it because it is an attachment for there vape pen which is fantastic. I have not tried this grinder, but I thought it was cool. Enjoy!
