Say you're lighting a smoke or something in a breezy area. If you light one match or two and it blows out, combine the spent matches with the new one.

Another thing you can do, use your back as a shield by having your back facing the direction the breeze is coming from. 9 times out of 10 you'll only need one match. ;-) That info isn't just for smokers but for lighting a campfire or barbecue too.
