    I'll start. These things are in my pocket every day:

    Keys
    Night Ize Doohickey (on key ring, to save my blade from prying tasks)
    Pilot G-2 fine point, black
    Maratac AAA Nichia 219 light, copper
    Spyderco Delica 4
    Wallet
    Phone (taking the picture)

    Left front pocket.....mints, folded money, pocket flashlight, leather pick pouch w/ 3-4 picks. 12' tape measure.
    Right front pocket....Swiss Army "Tinker", folding dental pick (looks like a small pocket knife), coins, keys to my mother's senior living facility (including collapsible ballpoint pen), leather case for MY house and car keys.
    Right rear pocket.....wallet with licenses and credit/debit cards.
    Left rear pocket.....decoy wallet with fake credit cards and about $3.00 cash.
    I'd try to get the kitchen sink in there but I just ran out of pockets.
    Edit Added.....I forgot, in left front pocket I also carry my car's "clicker", separate from its keys, so I can get in car if I accidentally lock the keys in it.

    Oh yeah, the poo bags -- in every coat pocket.

    I usually have a small backpack with me as my man-purse:

    * earbuds
    * phone
    * keys
    * 2 pens
    * notepad
    * small flashlight
    * wallet
    * extra $100 in 20s tucked into "secret" pocket
    * sunglasses
    * eyeglasses (rarely used)
    * poo bags
    * lanyard with security fob for office

    One thing I don't have is a pocket knife. I carried one but found I never needed it. Another is a gun -- I'm Canadian FFS!

    Man bag. Full EMT/survival kit/repelling rescue set/self defense equipment/food & water, plus much more (including three different guitar picks). Goes everywhere that I go and with built in fanny pack/harness I can hike with it for a week.

    Yup, a Boy Scout through and through for over 50 years now. Ahem, yes, I win.:cool: IMG_3441.JPG

    Pants: keys, wallet. Coat (only during winter): gloves, Kleenex or paper towel.
    Cell phone is on a belt clip, so, not in pockets.

    Man, I love overalls. I wish they were okay for me to wear to work. So much function, so little fuss.

    I'm looking into something like this right now. Care to share what brand/style it is? How big is it?

    Do you carry by the handle? Or fasten it around your waist?
    Everywhere? Like even in to Walmart or a gas station?

    Nothing special -- I got it at Costco. Roots.

    It's "day backpack" size. If we fly somewhere for the weekend, I can stuff a weekend's worth of clothes and whatnot into it, and not have to check a bag or deal with a wheelie carry-on bag.

    The watch pocket in my 501's was always an illicit domicile.

    Small but powerful. Thankfully, those days are gone.

    Not much, but I did cut a hole in the bottom of my right pocket:)

    I carry by the handle unless I'm on a hike. Straps onto the canoe or mountain bike very quickly. Must be prepared when venturing into the concrete jungle though. I don't do big box stores ... well unless it is GC, but the nearest one is two states and one time zone away.

    I do remove a few items when traveling outside of Montana ... for legal purposes.:cry::rolleyes:

    I don't like thin and insubstantial clothes, so I usually wear jeans, boots and a heavy jacket. (It's jacket weather here, about 350 days a year.....).
    I don't like my trouser pockets weighed down with stuff, so I like to put my phone, wallet and keys in my jacket. I have a little Swiss Army knife on my keyring and the torch on my phone is usually sufficient. The tiny blade is fine for paring fruit and the scissors and file are the perfect guitarist's companion. I have a decent light and big toolbox in the car, with a proper knife, should the need arise.
    There's always a large handkerchief available, somewhere. 1001 uses.

    'EDC' no longer applies. I don't go out of the house every day, any more. Retirement is a Very Good Thing. :) I was swinging a Bill Hook around in the garden all afternoon, today. That would be a swift trip to court, if I waved it around in the street. :oops:
