A sideways adapter like this
I bought 3 of the Adafruit adapters for my 3 rPis, but seldom use them because it is such a fight to get them in and out of the rPi SD slot (which coincidentally isn't the strongest slot in the world).
I'm using a full-size SD card right now, but I'll probably replace the slot on one of my boards with a microSD card slot (if/when I have the part(s) and time).
