Everyone's handy tool!
All the time you spend searching for your tape measure is a waste of good time that you could be using to knit, crochet, sew, vacuum (ok, well, maybe not vacuum). But you get the idea. Always keep a tape measure within reach, on the coffee table or beside your computer, in the glove box of the car, on your nightstand . . . everywhere you hang out.
Our little RCY tape measure is 60"/150cm long and retracts with the push of a button. It's not a lifetime tape measure, but it's well made and a nice price.
Each tape measure costs $4. Buy in multiples of four (they're also great little treats for chums) for $12 and it's like getting one for free.
