* Adjunct to the "Buy Two" rule: I carry a copy of my '''Car Key in my wallet'''. It would be a rare moment that I managed to lock ''both'' my wallet and my keys in the car. It's come in handy more times than I care to admit. --[[User:RobNoxious|RobNoxious]] 01:04, 28 Mar 2005 (EST) * Adjunct to the "Buy Two" rule: I carry a copy of my '''Car Key in my wallet'''.

  • Not to say this is anything out of personal exprience, because, as you know, I’m without flaw. But if you have an item in your life that keeps getting lost (and is a pain to replace without having the original), buy two. One could, for example, keep an extra gas cap in the car in the event they’re the sort of person who absentmindedly leaves the original at the gas pump occasionally. Just saying. --Merlin Mann 02/11/2005 04:06 PM (PST)
  • Keep extra shoelaces on hand. They only cost a dollar or two and they can really spiff up an old pair of shoes. Plus you never know when you are going to break one. --Mose 11:56 AM 03/25/2005 (CST)
  • Don't buy two of EVERYTHING, even if you do lose them. For example, don't buy a spare expensive halogen bulb for the lamp that needs one every five years. It will just create clutter. --Torgo 12:31, 6 Apr 2005 (EDT)
    • Hacker Exception: When you buy two of something (like two Robosapiens), immediately open a Project folder and capture your hacking Next Actions. --AP 13:17, 6 Apr 2005 (EDT)
    • You may want to consider buying socks two at a time. --Philiph 11:33, 8 Apr 2005 (EDT)
  • Adjunct to the "Buy Two" rule: I carry a copy of my Car Key in my wallet. It would be a rare moment that I managed to lock both my wallet and my keys in the car. It's come in handy more times than I care to admit. --RobNoxious 01:04, 28 Mar 2005 (EST)
