Duct tape is a DIY enthusiast's best friend, but the large rolls can be heavy and awkward to pack in tight places. This simple tip makes a short roll of duct tape accessible to every part of your life, whenever you need it.
Take a standard pencil and wrap the duct tape evenly around it. Cut it off at the desired length. A standard roll of duct tape will yield more than 18 mini-rolls. These mini duct tape rolls can be stored in a glove box, kitchen drawer, pencil holder, backpack or luggage. Since it also doubles as a pencil you've made a multi-use device, which is key when packing light.
