ain't mad at that.
if you are trying to decorate your home, a random measuring tape in your car or bag is essential. the worst thing is to buy an amazing piece at a great price and one it doesn't fit in your car (if you haven't a truck) or two you get it home and it just doesn't fit the space. often there are no refunds on furniture bought from second hand stores.
i would add that a brightly colored or a fun measuring tape will help you keep track of it...maybe.
so remember having a measuring tape on hand at all times can save you time, and money.
