I think eventually you will want more supplies. It gets hard after a while relying on discrete component testers (DMM, Cap testor, etc). Sometimes the best tool is a good scope. Scopes are expensive...digital ones are stupid expensive.

Things changed a lot for me when I got a DAQ from NI....http://www.ni.com/mydaq/

Its a "learning thing" I guess, but its a full IO, scope, logic analyzer, really anything and insanely powerful for the price, plus comes with Multisim and Labview (which are both pretty awesome).
You could do all of this with an arduino I guess, but sheesh...why reinvent the wheel. When I got the DAQ, things got a lot nicer. I love the porn of having a vast array of bench top discrete tools, but until that day, I think the myDAQ serves a good role.

Also, this guy.
