RogerDat - the problem with a flashlight is that it takes at least one hand to hold it. My hubby favors those headlamp thingies and I must say they're pretty useful. Many of them give you options for brightness and aiming of the light
and they leave your hands free. Nice for walking around at night in the campground or reading in bed when one person wants to stay up and one wants to go to sleep. I just don't want to strap one on just to find something in the cupboard.
Darwin - thanks for the explanation and for the link. I'll check it out!
Doghaus - thanks for the recommendation on the SuperBright LEDs. I'll check them out too.
Our cupboards and closets are really dark and sometimes finding what you're looking for is a real PITA. One might also consider painting
the inside of the cupboards white.
