When Mom and Dad got married and Mom moved into Dad's house (she had already sold her big house and was just renting a two bedroom townhome), they ended up having "duplicates" of some tools and small household items. Mom gave all of her furniture, linens, and a lot of decorative pieces to a young couple who had lost everything thanks to a family disaster and had to move in with the young wife's parents. They were trying to adopt a baby, but even though they found another small rental house, there was no money to replace their furniture and household stuff. They came over with a moving truck and some family and Mom's townhouse was cleaned out fast. Mom was so happy to help them, and get rid of some nice things that Dad's house just didn't have room for (and a month or two later they adopted their baby boy!)
One thing she brought up to Chicagoland was a small box with some household tools and repair items. Things handy at the townhouse, but not really needed here.
So Dad "repurposed" a few of them.
Like this one, handy when Mom is trying to do something on the computer and muttering HBO words.
