Dad tip #73: Keep a screwdriver on every floor of the house

The title says it all. Keep a screwdriver on every floor; preferably one that has multiple heads (flat head, philips, etc.).

Now that we a have a baby and it seems that I'm assembling, adjusting, or fixing something every other day, it would be REALLY convenient to have a screwdriver on every floor. And if you're terrible about picking up and putting things back where they belong (like I am), the screwdriver is never on the floor that you need it. Furthermore, you might even find a screwdriver that WON'T suit your needs and that just even more aggravating.

Sadly, the need for the other kind of Screwdriver (the cocktail) seems to be diminishing.

If only they made something you could carry tools around in. Like, a belt of some sort. Does such a clever accessory exist?

On second thought, keeping multiple sets of tools scattered throughout the house is MUCH more practical, as well as safe for baby.

Funny. Once I had children, the need for the other kind of screwdriver seemed to increase...
