Apparently a mechanic's tool purchase deductions can entered as a total amount, but what should be entered as the Date Purchased?

From what I've read here on AnswerXchange, it is apparently okay for a mechanic to enter a total amount for deducting tool purchases (as opposed to entering individual tools/receipts), but what should be entered as the "Date purchased or acquired" in TurboTax? It appears I could either use an arbitrary date or possibly leave it blank. Thanks in advance.

Try entering "various."  If that doesn't work pick the date when you spent the most money on tools.

Entering "Various" doesn't work because it's a date field in Turbotax, so I'll pick a date as suggested. Thanks.
