Cooking tongs are useful for grabbing items out of reach - boxes on a high shelf or something on a bottom shelf. No need to grab a chair or kneel on the floor. If you don't have long handled tongs, buy some soon. They come in very handy.
Source: Started using them a few years ago when I was too lazy to grab a step stool.

We saved a crutch from my husband's surgery and use it when things are too far out of reach for the tongs. It's also great for pushing things to the back of a deep closet (yeah, I know, but when you have to store things you have to store them.)
