Every Day Carry

Stuff can happen when you least expect it.  It usually happens at the most inopportune moments as well.  It really helps allay the stress of those moments when you have some tools at your disposal to mitigate the circumstances.

I really don’t like to carry around a suitcase everywhere I go, but there are some things I do like to have on hand in my purse every day. Some of the things I like to carry are:

EDC 5-12-14 001

flat credit card-sized multi-tool

bic lighter

solar l.e.d. flashlight (didn’t make the picture)

small med bag (didn’t make the picture)

(My small med bag contains:  bandaids, safety pins, antibiotic salve, aspirin, ibuprofen, Tylenol, heartburn meds)

lip balm

hand lotion

perpetual ceramic nail file

compact mirror

small amount of cash ($20 preferably in smaller bills)

Soon I’ll also include my handgun and extra magazine (sigh, I’m old-school…it’s a clip lol). Unfortunately, my workplace is a “Gun-free Zone”.  SMH.

So, do these EDC items guarantee my safety in the event of the zombie apocalypse?  Eh, not so much.  But, they do make life a little more comfortable away from home.  I want to add a few more items, but I’m still pondering what to add and how to carry them without the aforementioned suitcase.

Next up, I’m working on putting together Get-Home-Bags and Stay-Put-Bags for the office.  Although I have yet to need a GHB, I have had an instance where I was snowed in at the office and had to spend the night. An SPB would have been really helpful then.

So, what do you EDC and what things would you recommend for a GHB and a SPB?

Hope everyone has a great week!
