Sustainable Tool: the Eat'n Tool
That's why I was thrilled, three days before Christmas, to discover the "Eat'N Tool." And while this little beauty won't replace every tool, it is a wonderful option for people who need to keep a few tools in a small place.
The tool is a lightweight yet solid piece of metal that functions as a screwdriver, pry tool, metric wrench, bottle opener, and a spork. It is just the thing to rescue you a minor mechanical emergency or car problem, or it can come in handy to tackle that sloppy joe that the drive-thru thought was a sandwich but you think requires a utensil.
I immediately ordered one for myself (for my purse/bug-out bag), one for my dad (who shows a car during the summer at events known both for engines and juicy cheeseburgers), and one for my father-in-law, who advises Boy Scouts on camping. (I ordered from REI and got them all in time for Christmas!)
Although I haven't gotten a chance to use my tool in an emergency, I think this a great option to handle all sorts of surprises. I particularly recommend this for my fellow ladies, since we often have less complete tool boxes than some gentlemen do. This is a great starter for anyone who may have to do a couple of basic chores in a first apartment, too. If you want one for yourself, click here.
(Note: I bought this tool for myself and have received no compensation from either Eat'N Tool or REI.)
