Preparedness Quick Tip #3: Create a Mini EDC

Want to have some handy tools around with you all of the time? Get rid of the little fru-fru key chain fobs and add in some mini key chain tools. Here are just a few suggestions that you can choose from to make this work for you:

and any other thing that you feel would benefit you, and you’ve got your own mini-EDC (everyday carry). My favorite? This small key chain nail clipper – more for everyday convenience than anything, but it has definitely come in handy!

All that stuff on my key chain?

Be sure to make the most of your key chain without adding a ton of extra weight to it which might damage your ignition. You’ll want to be sure it’s streamlined enough to be able to throw into your pocket easily.

What do you carry on your key chain that could help you out in an emergency?

    Very sensible set up. I also have a kobeta stick on my key chain. I took women’s self classes and this was one weapon highly recommended by the sensi. It’s a 5″ heavy grade plastic stick, covered with section of ridges made with the same material. it fits comfortably in your fist. Can be used to reinforce paunch, or turned lengthwise to thrust. Perfectly legal weapon to carry. I started taking self defense classes after a particularly scared encounter in a parking lotin broad daylight.

    Not a big fan of the SA knives, mostly ‘cos I carried ’em for many years. In regular daily use (5 to 20 cuts of cardboard & packing tape) the blades needed sharpening *weekly*, and I had to replace ’em every 5 years ‘cos I wore ’em out or they fell apart. I have a quality small folding pocket knife that I carry now when I need one, but it doesn’t have a key ring on it. I’ve looked high and low for something decent to replace SA knives. Still looking…
    I have an ancient Arc AAA LED flashlight that’s been on the keyring since the ’90s. It’s been all over the world with me, and down to ~140ft scuba diving. I’ll be sad when it finally keels over.
    Other than phone, keys, alarm fob and mini Bic lighter, that’s it for my EDC. Yep, I have a couple of solar chargers for the phone, Just In Case. 😉
