Trust me, there are about a million uses for duct tape. And especially when you are miles from a store and something breaks, duct tape will be a life saver. But don’t head over to Home Depot to pick up the shiny silver tape. Head to your dollar store.
Usually the dollar store will carry the usual silver standard, but they might also have it in black too, so you might want to pick up a roll of each depending on what you will use it for.
ALWAYS check the amount of tape on the roll, usually in length. Try and find the 25′ or 50′ rolls, but you will commonly find rolls that might only be 10′ or 15′ in length. So be sure you are getting the best deal if you can only find shorter rolls. If so, Amazon might be your best bet.
The dollar store might also have some of the decorative duct tape which can be really tempting. But check the length here too – they often have minimum footage, and by minimum, I mean 5 yards. But if you have something in mind, the decorative tape can be fun to use.
If you need longer footage, this is probably the best deal at Amazon.
