I have a friend who will not buy a kitchen gadget unless it she can use it for 2 things. I thought of her yesterday as I accidentally knocked my container of straight pins on the floor. These were the ones with the tiny little heads. They went all over and I dreaded the thought of spending the time to pick them up, especially the ones that ended up in the little cracks between the floorboards.
Then I thought of this little tool that I had just come across in a box of canning supplies.
