If you see my post on the What do You Carry thread, you'll notice I've started carrying a stack load of stuff in my wallet. And it seems to be working for me - prompting me to perform far more, which as an amateur is a really good thing!

To copy it here:

My wallet currently has ready to go:

Cards ready for card warp
Cards for three card monte: ungaffed; gaffed; and U3CM
A variety of ways of revealing different cards
Bingo cards (number prediction)
A revelation for equivoke style trick
A set of MOs for a mental magic style trick
A card that turns inside out (bar betcha)
A small stack of marked and stacked ESP cards
A set of cribs for mathematic tricks
A set of cribs for a host or bar bets

Soon I'll be adding to my carry round collection:

Elastic bands
An origami type trick
A small prepped pocket notepad for a variety of mental magic effects

And a deck of cards: prepped, marked, stacked, with gaffs hidden in plain sight and the box made useful
And another deck, with different set-up for switching

I'm working on ways to use my watch and phone ...

Pocket mouse for kids (kept in a pill bottle so it lasts longer)
Squeaker (in wallet so it doesn't squeak in every step)
Sponge balls (in a change purse so they are confined and don't get too dirty. - I do wash them regularly)
Cards and sharpie.

I usually carry my iPhone with me; which nowadays is never seen by my spectators. Smile

I normally just carry around a red phoenix deck in a porper deck wrapped with 4 blue rubber bands, coin purse with 4 seated liberty coins and Digital Dissolve, and my Exact Change gimmick that houses silver quarters and dimes, and copper pennies.

Exact change is great. I would recommend getting the application that can go with it on IPhones.

Does anyone else carry some magic supplies with them wherever they go? I certainly do. At any given time, I carry one normal Bicycle deck, one bridge sized Bicycle (I have small hands), and one extra-large coin that's good for coin magic. You guys?

Yes, I bring cards with me everywhere although I don't mind using a borrowed deck.

I bring a regular deck of cards, rubberbands, and sharpies. There are other props as well, but they change depending on what I want to perform that day.

I always carry a balloon for if I'm somewhere like a Dr.'s office and a kid or two are there, I'll rip the nipple off (Detach-Rick Lax)
As soon as they see you're blowing up a balloon, they're watching you. lol.
A couple elastics for Melting point, and my Ignition Key through bill ( or receipt) when I'm at a cash register.
I may also carry Extreme Burn, some coins, Cinch and Two Dollar Window.
I sometimes perform a Strike Change with a dime and penny when in a room with a few people, and depending on the crowd may dump the penny out of the pen cap as an ending. If at a party, I'll borrow a woman's ring and levitate it between my fingertips, and I carry a small plastic diamond I "accidentally" let drop out before I do. lol. the majority of the tricks I do are quick and over with,( I don't get out much) and occasionally I'll just smile, turn and walk away afterwards which leaves them looking at the bill or whatever, wondering, " Who was that masked man?" lol.
It's nice to be important, but it's more important to be nice.

At the very least, I will have one deck of cards, a sharpie and my JOL wallet in which I always carry some business cards and a couple of packet tricks.

I usually carry Powerball 60 in my wallet, a thumb tip (you never know), a leather shoelace and my pinky ring, and two decks of bicycles (one regular - one stacked). This is more than enough to entertain people. I will occasionally carry a sharpie and a bug writer. Sometimes a fire wallet or Shawn Farquar's Card to Wallet.

EnterTRAINment at its best. Keeping the Magic Alive in Northern BC

Sharpie, Card-to-Wallet, ungimmicked pack, ID, business cards and very occasionally coin in bottle.
The ID is the most important and it's the only thing I will not go anywhere without, ever. For example, if I'm going out and I don't want to do any magic, I still take the ID because you never know when you'll get asked to perform. Usually, it's enough to appease anyone desperate for a trick.

Rubberbands, ring, Loops, and if I'm freely like some card stuff, then The Code by Andy Nyman.
