Old Man's Survival Kit

It is finally complete....I ended up with so much stuff I had to eliminate a bunch of things and have a bag of stuff left over for the next victim! It took me a good 20 minutes to figure out how to get everything in.....Crazy!

Old Man's Survival Kit

Project Supplies: Paint Can, Retired Stampin Up Designer Paper, SU Brads, Dimensionals, Ribbon, Gel Pen and Wire (Retired). Basic Black & Pumpkin Pie Cardstock and Cricut.

What went into the "Old Man's Survival Kit"

  • Antacid Tablets
  • Anti Wrinkle Soap
  • Aspirin: For all the new little aches & pains
  • Baby Bib: To catch the drooling when napping
  • Balloon: To hold all that hot air you're full of
  • Blue Hot Tamales: AKA Viagra
  • Watch: For all those "Senior Moments"
  • Crying Towel....Need I say more??
  • Tweezers: To remove chin, nose and ear hair.
  • Vitamins
  • Whistle: For when you fall & you can't get up
  • Yo-Yo: For strenuous exercise
  • Pull Up (Diaper)- Use as needed, because everything either dries up or leaks
  • Fireball Candy: To put some fire back in your life
  • Instant Face Lift: Roll of duct tape
  • Instant Hair Grower: To replace the hair you will loose.
  • Magnifying Glass: For reading really small print
  • Paper Clips: To help hold it all together
  • Reading Glasses: So you can read all those Rx's bottles
  • Rubber Band: To give you flexibility back
  • Screwdriver: To tighten up loose screws
  • Small Funnel: Because you wonder why everyone has started to mumble
  • Spring Clothes Pin: To clip to nose to stop snoring
  • Toilet Targets: Avoid embarrassing misses. Better Aim Less Shame! (I made my own out of our circle punches)
  • Screws: In case you loose some
  • Energizer Batter: For extra energy
  • Toothpicks: To help prop your eyes open so you don't fall asleep every time you sit down.

This is all I could fit!!

Great ideas. Thanks.
Can you remember what else you were going to put in but didn't have room for? I'm going to do something similar for my Dad's 60th. Sarah
