OK this tip may be a bit out there, but I'm offering it up anyway because it has helped me in a pinch:
Keep several sewing needles threaded with clothing colors like white, black, blue & brown. In case you need to make a quick mend to a button, hem, etc. especially in morning as you prepare for work, the sewing needle will be ready to go. Have you tried to thread a needle in a hurry, it's hard and who needs that frustration.
