What are some common household objects that can be used as standard measures?

I forgot the size of a television I own, and it's been bugging me. And now that I think about it, there's about a zillion things I'd like to measure around my house. But I don't have a tape measure, and I can't be counted on to get one any time soon. So if I go to my pantry/closet/cupboard/bookcase/and on, what stuff inside is exactly 1 foot long? 6 inches? 1 decimeter? 1cm? etc?
Household instruments good for measurements other than length welcome as well.
