Forget The Tape Measure: Try Ruler Stickers!

Forget The Tape Measure: Try Ruler Stickers!

In my purse, I usually carry a pocket-sized floor plan so when I happen upon a bargain I'm always ready to make a true decision if it's something I should purchase. That said, I don't always have a measuring tape on me, but these small stickers might be just what the doctor ordered!

Although a dollar bill is exactly 6" (fun fact right?), I rarely carry cash these days. Despite my best attempts to keep a measuring tape in my purse, I always end up stealing it for one project or another (since I actually know where it is). Neither of those behaviors is exactly helpful if you need to measure furniture or home furnishings on the fly.

Nothing is more defeating than getting a great deal, just to get it home and find that it doesn't really fit. It might not be so bad if you're in a city with access to a car and you can just jet back to the store, but for some who have to acquire transportation or take it on mass transit, the process can kind of be a pain.

This pack of stickers will run you $3.99 on sale from $5.00 at Amazon and could help you out in a pinch! Do you think they're a good idea or just something to gum up your wallet? Share your thoughts below!
