Behold the humble eyeglasses case. Sturdy. Stalwart. Does its job, and that’s it, right? Wrong.
What you see here is more than a scratch-preventing pod for your Warbys. It’s a multidimensional life tool.
In the past few months, I’ve used my case to clip together a bag of chips, safely stow jewelry at the pool and gym, anchor helium balloons at a party, and yeah, hold some glasses.
In my suitcase you’ll find a case that holds a few spools of thread, buttons and some sewing needles. BOOM TRAVELING REPAIR KIT.
All sorts of necessary life items can be toted around in these sturdy, tightly hinged vessels: tissues, pacifiers, lady items, makeup, nail polish, etc. I’m convinced that the clipping action has many more functions, and I simply have yet to imagine them.
Go ahead and KonMari the string of old, broken, and discarded eyeglasses in your life if that makes you happy. But keep the cases!
