The term "Every Day Carry" (EDC) is typically used to describe guns and/or knives.
In this case; I am not talking about self defense weapons. (FYI: I do not count multi-tools or SAKs as weapons; because they include various tools.)
There are many other types of items that people choose to carry on their person every day; to help get them through their day-to-day tasks.
What is the one item, or "tool", that you HAVE to carry on you every day?
Fudging a bit, because they're in my car, not on my person, but I always keep a change of clothes handy.
I normally dress in jeans and a nice shirt for college and work, but often I find a friend who wants to hang out and exercise. Thus, it's always good to have some sportys duds handy, and it also helps if a bad stain or tear ever arises. Plus, they're nice if we just want to be lazy in comfortable clothes together.
Well, I guess you still carry it with you every day; so it still counts.
Dog poop bags - useful for so many things. And wet wipes. Ditto.
Perfume, deodarent, notebook and pen are always in my bag. You never know, right?
I keep meaning to add a pen to my EDC.
My SwissChamp (big Swiss Army Knife) had a pen cartridge on the handles; so I at least had that.
My current SAK does not have one, so I have been thinking about getting this telescopic key chain pen. It extends to a full sized.
A field note, mechanical pencil, two key-chain tools and a cellphone with accessories.
I always have a watch and a wallet. Usually a phone and car keys (no mass transit near me).
There are many different kinds of tools you can keep in your wallet.
I did an article on my PocketMonkey.
It is sort of like those "survival cards" you see on F all the time; but there is no blade, It is more office friendly.
Who could be intimidated by a little mernkey???
Phone, tissue, notebook, pen, lipstick, bandaids, wallet and day planner, comb and business cards.
It's a pen with a stylus on the end for tablets or phones.
Actually I have this Nite Ize doohic key and swiss tech tool key. They are good complements for my knives.

Particularly since Sept. 11, 2001 all citizens have been encouraged to report suspicious actions and activities to the police and/or homeland security. Have you ever reported someone? If so, for what and do you know the outcome?
