Mini first aid kit fits anywhere,
goes everywhere

If you can never find a Band-Aid when you need one, Johnson & Johnson has a good solution. Their First Aid To Go kit contains 12 essential first aid items in a portable, durable and refillable plastic case. It's just 4"H x 4-1/2"W x 1-1/4"D, and can easily fit in a car console, briefcase, desk drawer, gym bag, camera case, carry-on luggage, back pack, fanny pack, tool case, lunch box, laptop case, or even a pocket.

The kit includes antiseptic wipes, gauze pads, butterfly closures, and of course, the vital Band-Aid adhesive bandages. There's no medicine, though, so get a few Tylenols or aspirins and any special emergency meds you might need (including kiddie-strength stuff if appropriate), and add them to the box. Maybe add a tweezers for removing splinters, too.

Price is usually two bucks, but I've seen it recently for an amazing NINETY-NINE CENTS at Staples and Wal-Mart. Buy six, and spread them around. You won't regret it.
