Casa Quickie: Keep a Straightedge Handy

One of the tools that I recommend stocking your toolbox with is a utility blade. You can also get a safety knife for it, but I think most adults with reasonably decent fine-motor skills can handle a blade by itself. It has so many uses, including quickly and accurately cutting down cardboard boxes, like this one. You can also keep one close to your recycling box to help you flatten boxes each week.

I wouldnt keep a blade like that without a safety blade in the house. Sorry but its just unsafe. You never know when nieces, nephews, your kids or a friends kids might be over inquisitive. Safety First! p.s I am VERY scared of knives and dont keep them in the house, so I may be a tad biased...
