go to Ikea and look for the toolset.. contains a pliers, hammer, screwdriver with assorted heads... it cost about 7 or 8 dollars.. but they are sturdy
 
The comments in here cracking me up.

But for real Poca, I understand the desire to want to learn how to do these things for yourself and not depend on someone to do it for you. Luckily when I was young my mom taught me how to fix a toilet, my grandfather taught me how to use a wrench and my uncles taught me how to properly hammer a nail (that sound weird).

When I moved into my first place, I went to the hardware store and bought four essentials, IMO: a hammer, a screwdriver (that came with a phillips-head and a flat-head), a wrench, and a pair of pliers... over the course of time I have purchased more tools based on whatever needed fixing in my apartment.

I am thinking about getting some tools so I can start doing some little repairs around the house but, there are so many tools out there that I don't know where to start.

I would like to have some very basic tools and maybe a few others.
You don't want to buy BS tools because they break unexpectedly. Since its for simple around the house use, I'd recommend Husky, Klein and Stanley brand tools.

1. Tape Measure
2. Screwdriver set of at least 4, with one phillips & one flathead at least 4" long or better.
3. A good claw hammer.
4. Vice grip
5. Cordless Drill
6. Duct-tape, Gorilla Glue or some strong bonding compound.
