Last weekend I attended a potluck-style picnic on the coast. I brought three dishes; two required a sharp knife and the third needed a bowl for serving. Instead of purchasing a disposable knife and bowl, I decided to simply bring my everyday kitchenware. To ensure they weren't lost, I labeled both items.
I placed a piece of a clear scotch tape on the side of the knife and the bottom of the bowl. With a sharpie, I wrote my name. After the party, if one of my friends ended up with the tools, she would know it belonged to me.
