Price check please!

 

Recently, an influx of questions regarding the prices of certain things relevant to DIY haunters and prop makers prompted me to make a special trip to my local Home Depot for some research.  With a pocket memo book and pen in hand, I walked every aisle that had stuff I know we all use at one point or another and I jotted down prices of the assorted materials that one would find in a haunter's garage or workshop.  I'm sure I missed a few things, but I ain't getting paid to do this, so what you see is what you get.  If anyone has anything to add, please email me and let me know.  I'm going to try to break this down into categories to make it easier to find something if you're looking for it.
