Warning: We will run out of new tricks in

I am curious what people carry in their "every day carry" when it comes to magic. I'm not talking about for a gig, I'm just talking about what you keep on you at all times that you could use for a bit of impromptu magic. I would also be interested in some examples of what you do with what you carry.

I have been more interested in this subject lately. I am trying to have a really good EDC that doesn't require me to put anything in my pockets that I wouldn't normally do. So, here is my current EDC:

WALLET:
A single playing card for a mentalism routine I developed.
A pencil/pen through credit card gimmick.
A small packet trick that I developed.
A cardboard holder the size of a credit card that has three un-gimmicked quarters and a gimmicked coin through ring quarter.
... I do coins across similar to Greg Wilson,
... I do a transposition with coin and paper napkin inspired by Craig Petty's coin and sponeball transposition routine,
... And, of course, coin through ring.

KEYCHAIN:
A small BIC pen for Greg Wilson style routines
A "copper/silver" key set
The same keys for key & ring routine.

CELL PHONE HOLDER:
A napkin for Dan Harlan's starcle
A few rubber bands for a version of Jeff McBride's routine based on Stargazer

WHAT I WOULD LIKE TO ADD:
A few more good mentalism routines, maybe something really good that fits on a single paper that is credit card size.

At the moment I carry a Himber wallet with billets and a small Fisher space pen.
In the wallet are business cards set up for Volition and Stegosaurus.
Also included are 10 marked ESP cards, ENVision by Collin McCloud, pre-folded bill for serial number divination (including TOXIC), Will to Read, a 7 of Spades for Bryn Reynold's Seven, and a bill set up for Garcia's Fraud.

Phone with Wikitest and DFB.

This all packs small.

If I'm feeling it I'll throw in a deck of cards with a couple extra bits including a Psypher card (and sharpie), Counterfeit and French Kiss by Wayne Houchin, and Angle-Z.

Thank you for the great routine! I have a himber wallet with the 7S and a QH loaded in each side. This way I can do a predixion style force with a free choice of the final two cards using the himber. I can also use one of those cards for Counterfeit by Wayne Houchin.
I've also been using "your lucky nite" regularly and getting great reactions. I've loaded the envelopes with fake million dollar bills from amazon, borrow a large bill from a spectator, and have the spectator rip the envelopes one by one as a sort of russian roulette type routine. PATEO in play. Great routine.

I highly recommend the Safwan Papers. I need to pick up Logar Scrolls!

I carry a small card wallet holding four Aces for Dr Daleys last card and twisting the Aces. I aslo carry a version of B'wave. Add a few rubber bands I'm good to go with CMH, Jacobs ladder, Stargazer and a few others.

For each prop I have 3-4 effects I can do with them. This came from a excise of getting the most out of one prop.

Hope this is of some use
Enjoy your magic,

and let others enjoy it as well!

Yesterday I used the wallet to switch business cards. The purse I changed Swedish coins into American.

In my EDC you´ll find a TT with a squareshaped hankerchief (stashed in the watch-pocket), a half dollar coin, a small wand (my wife is eyerolling because in every free minute I'm spinning the wand) and 4 mini-baseballs (to get them a "used" style)

I have the Nexus wallet as my everyday wallet with a few blank business cards for some light (or strong) mindreading. I found a multitool key fob a few years back that contains a magnet. On that magnet is a coin with an iron core so I never lose the coin. The magnet acts as a holdout during rutines. I usually have a deck of cards in my pocket. Simple EDC that gets me by.

My EDC:
On top of the SOH which can be done and various FASDIU card tricks if I borrow a deck a of cards; in my pockets I have a Steel Money Clip Peek Device, Prodigy Peek, a CCK, and a packet trick holder that has B'Wave and Close Up Illusion by Larry Jennings.
I am working on Prohibition Monte (put out by 1914) to also be carried in the packet trick holder.
