Everyday Carry

I like to think of the EDC (everyday carry) concept as prepping light. It’s the first small step towards being prepared for different situations. There are endless forums for seeing people’s kit but this page aims to give some context to the decision making behind the items rather than just a consumerist show off. My kit is in a constant state of flux the page will be updated as changes are made.

Always Carry Perfect Change

People pay with cash less and less these days, particularly with change. Transactions under about twenty dollars are sometimes worth paying in cash to me. Because the finality of the transaction is so nice sometimes. Additionally, small local businesses prefer cash because it's harder to absorb the merchant fee. I often just hand over the most efficient bank note and put the change in a container for a future CoinStar trip.
