Introduction: My Everyday Carry [EDC] 1.0

Picture of My Everyday Carry [EDC] 1.0
My co-workers often ask me what all I carry on my person.  This is because I have developed a reputation for always being prepared.  :)  However, I'd rather not empty out all of my pockets at work so I figured I'd upload it on the internet for those who are interested.

Although my wife thinks of my preparedness as a hobby - which is partially true - I like to feel prepared because it eases my mind [not to mention it's cool to constantly "save the day" because I have something like scissors on me! ]. 

If you have recommendations, questions or comments please leave them below!

Without further ado, here is my EDC:

Whoa! I thought that I carried a lot of stuff with me! Currently, I have 2 cell phones, large wallet with chain, leather keychain with 5 key and an emergency whistle, mini binoculars, small knife, black Sharpie, pen, lighter, mini wallet, carabineer with extra shoelaces, lucky Chinese coin necklace, and a fork... I think that's it.
