To be totally up front, I haven't experienced the unfortunate luck that would allow me to use any of Pinch Provisions Minimergency Kits. But having the palm-sized $15 kit in my purse is well worth the peace of mind it affords. It includes the following items: hairspray, clear nail polish, nail polish remover, emery board, lip balm, earring backs, clear elastics, safety pin, mending kit, Shemergency® tape, stain remover, deodorant towelette, pain reliever, tampon, breath freshener, dental floss, and an adhesive bandage.
Even though each item is in the teeniest tiniest size you ever did see, they all would come in handy during an "emergency." Except maybe the band-aid. Who accidentally cuts themselves in such a dainty way that it would require the world's smallest bandage? (Paper cuts do not constitute an emergency.)
