Like ort888.

I actually took off my small Spyderco knife of my keychain, since I'm flying all the time, and I would sooner or later have to discard it at the airport security anyways.

Not always, but often I'll have todays WSJ with me.

No - it's a shoeshine kit. But it is European. And it fits in a purs.

iPhone, Wallet, Keys (too many), and work bag with MBP.
I don't carry a pocket knife any more or anything more than a few tissues in my pockets depending on the weather.

Does the original question include car kit?
I keep lots of junk in the trunk.
AT&T iPhone 5S and 6; 13" MBP; MDD G4.

I meant it as your daily kit, what I mentioned I always carry around. I feel very incomplete without it.

However, when drunk I can just remember the two most important : keys and wallet
the rest will be returned a fews days later by my friends

I consider myself as an elite kind of bum : I can stay away from home with this stuff a long time. the rest I just buy on the go (toothbrush, underwear)

For me:

Keys
Wallet
Crappy cell phone
Smug sense of superiority

I received a Kindle as a gift that I'm still trying to come to terms with.

Just embrace it. I'm a voracious reader (3-4 books a week) and I was pretty anti-ebook reader when I got mine in September (birthday gift). Once I stopped being resistant and actually started using it, I don't know why I didn't get one ages ago. I love it.

We recently got a few Kindles at work with safety training manuals and MSDS on them, I really want one now. Quite a nifty device. We can keep one hung up in the kitchen and search by terms to find info we need.
