    But if I did that, I would have to do all that work, and I would not net a dime, because the change fairy would simply withdraw more money from the joint account when she needed it.

    Nice to see a cigar smoker here. I'm a pipe man myself, but I've been known to enjoy the occasional cigar.

    Not much else for me. I used to carry a Leatherman Micro but it weighed too much if I wore dress slacks or suits. Also, I had two of them confiscated on separate occasions at airport security when I forgot to take them off the keychain. I just keep a full sized Leatherman in the car now.
    I carried a leatherman Micra for several years too until I switched to the Squirt. I'll admit that the keys etc do weigh a bit in dress slacks, but it's worth the weight to me, since I'm so glad to have it when I do need it. I'd take other stuff off my keys before the Leatherman. And haha, when I fly, I only take my wallet, phone, and watch. Everything else gets checked. Guarantee that TSA guys take stuff from the confiscated items box.

    I carry the squeeze-to-open plastic change holder, as previously mentioned. If it starts to get heavy or full, I remove all but the quarters. The pennies go into a large plastic jug on the floor in my room. It must be about five gallons in capacity, and is nearly full. Why I haven't taken them in to exchange them is beyond me. The dimes and nickels go into a metal coin bank on the piano. I raid the bank and wrap them right before every vacation, then I take the wrapped coins to the bank and get "pocket money". Both my wife and I follow this regimen, and the dimes and nickels really build up. If I accumulate more quarters than I want to carry, I just spend some....

    That's a much better way to deal with the coins than coinstar. I dont remember what coinstar charges, but it's steep. Something like seven cents on the dollar. Especially for quarters, where you can easily make $10 rolls, and get the sleeves from the bank for free, I always found coinstar to be a huge ripoff.

    My pipe lighter and tamper. Love a good pipe in my mouth and a Ukulele in my hand.

    I'll carry a green canvas Diesel bag at times. I picked it 'cause it looks like the gasmask bags of WWI. I'll carry a camera, book(s) and a sammich/ or snacks. If I carry my man-purse, I'll throw in my pocket notebook, pen and reading glasses.
    I will usually carry my man-purse if I have court duty, jury duty, have to work in another office that day or simply go on walkabout throughout town.
    I like my canvas bag but may upgrade if I find a leather bag like the one Tom Cruise carried in the movie, "Valkyrie". The one he used to try and blow up Hitler.
