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.
