A good way to pick up dropped pins and needles off the floor is a mechanics tool that is a pen-sized telescoping magnet. My husband suggested it and bought it at an auto parts store.

He said he does not remember the price. It was not very expensive, in the neighborhood of $3 or $4. Mine is a shiny metal with a pocket clip like a pen.l

This is a timely tip; lately there seem to be days when I drop EVERYTHING. If I may ask, about how much would one of these telescoping magnet thingies cost? It would be great if I could find a reasonably priced pick-up-thingy and worth a trip to an auto-parts store. Thank you.
