Useful items

What useful items, tools or appliances could you not live without?

For me one thing would be my Swiss Army knife. The knife comes in useful nearly every day for opening packages, peeling fruit, and other things. It also has a bottle opener for beer and a corkscrew for wine/port which obviously are absolute necessities. :D. I also use the tweezers a lot surprisingly and the toothpick often comes in handy as well, although not for its intended purpose as I feel it is not clean enough to put in ones mouth. Then there are the screw drivers which often come in handy as well. The last 2 tools which I don’t use are the nail file, and a strange hook thing that I don’t know what is for.

Over to you :)

    While I'm working I'd say my notepad and pencil, definitely! :)
