I like to keep large scraps of Blue Board (foam insulating board) and also cardboard handy. I use them to sit, kneel, or lay on while working on my vehicles & bikes. The blue board is waterproof, cushions, and keeps your butt warm, which is great if your working outside and/or on gravel or damp ground. It's also easy to wipe clean if you get it dirty.
I use the large cardboard scraps for the same purpose, but it's more disposable.

I'm also a big fan of rubber bands, large office binder clips, and magnets in the shop.
I like that one.

I like to keep a disposable tyvek coverall with my spare tire in the cage. I can throw it in if I need to do a roadside tire change and keep my clothes clean.

I also reccomend carrying a small square of housewrap in your bike's toolkit. That way you can spread it out and lay your tools and parts on it, instead of losing them in the dirt.
