Putting together an emergency repair kit

Hey, life happens. But that doesn’t mean you can’t be ready for any eventuality. Keep a shoebox of the following items in your closet at home so you won’t be searching for them at the last minute, and keep a mini version in your car or pocketbook for a quick trip to the restroom if necessary.
  • Safety pins (small, medium, and large)
  • Needle and thread (white, black, and brown)
  • Styptic pencil (men and women)
  • Extra pair of pantyhose (women)
  • Band-Aids
  • Clear nail polish to stop a run in pantyhose or repair an earring, a broken acrylic nail, or loose lens in your glasses
  • Hem tape
  • Tweezers for that splinter, or a pesky hair that just popped up
  • Antacid tablets (optional)
  • Breath mints
