Toe straps come in handy for all sorts of things. While out touring, my husband would always carry an extra one.

Absolutely! Will double as a luggage strap, a pants clip, and can be used as a temporary lashing to hold things (like pumps or water bottles in their cages) in place on rough roads.

And if you're really old-school, you can also use it as a toe strap ;)

I also generally carry those plastic wire zip-ties. Should a bolt or nut vibrate lose and be lost on something like a rear rack or fender you can use the zip tie as a temporary replacement. Add a couple of turns of duct tape around the barrel of your frame pump (useful if you need to boot a blown or cut tire) and you're set to handle almost any emergency.
