There are lots of little things that you need just once in a while, but chances are you need them right away!
You’re ready to walk out of the house on the way to a wedding, but your new heels keep slipping off. Or your 15 year old just went swimming – and forgot to take off his yarmulke. The bus is coming in 5 minutes and the only clean uniform skirt has a droopy hem.
All of these minor life emergencies could be fixed in a quick moment with just the right little “thingie.” But do you have those little things hanging around the house or will you be saying “if only I had a set of heel grips, or an extra yarmulke, or some hem tape…”?
We put together a list of some little items we like to keep on hand for those times when you don’t want to be running to the store for the quick solution that turns out not to be so quick after all.
Earring backs – You’re much less likely to misplace a pair of earrings if the back is replaced right away. Especially with recent piercings.
Yarmulkes – Just get one in each of your guys’ sizes. And hide it in your closet, not theirs.
Heel grips – You thought the fit was perfect, but you’re walking out of your shoes. Sometimes all you need is the grip in back. A well-cushioned one can also help prevent blisters.
Eyeglass screw kit – If you have a kid in glasses, there’s a good chance you already know this should be in the house.
Hem tape – Besides fixing a hem on the fly, hem tape is also good to close a gaping button down.
