On a daily basis, I carry everything pictured excluding the Leatherman and Benchmade because I am in school. Outside of school, I will carry the knife and multi-tool with me.

Introducing the latest and greatest item available in my shop - backpack style Animal Crossing cinch sacks! That’s right, no longer are you relegated to carrying around your bells in your hands, you can now simply toss them on your back for on-the-go convenience. 

This bag is about 12 inches from top to bottom and of that 12 inches, it features about 10 inches of usable space (below the “cinch”). The cords are made of durable red paracord and are tied at the ends to allow for adjustment. The straps also come in three standard lengths to suit anyone from a child to an adult.

Check out the listing here!


Polish Underfolder

Parts kit assembled rifle comprised of a U.S receiver and Polish AK components. Although underfolders are popular for their compact size and appearance, they offer little to no proper cheek weld. There are some ways to counter this; some people use paracord to add a little more surface area, but there is an aftermarket cheek riser. Not sure how well it works though. Another downside is the eventuality that the underfolding mechanism will loosen and begin to wobble around. (GRH)

Melted paracord makes a good epoxy if you need a quick fix.

One of the things I always do with it is seal any knots I make in the cord with some of the melted resin off of the end I cut, but the applications are endless! If you get some nice black paracord you’ll have both the strong, thin rope and a white and black adhesive to repair or seal all sorts of stuff.

I’ve found that it works well for closing off thread seams and tears too so keep it in mind the next time you go backpacking. Just finished repairing my jeans with it too.

This isn’t exactly the life coaching type of tip you normally see here but I definitely think it’ll help out. Happy melting!

As always, I try to keep my EDC as light (850g / 30oz) and minimalistic as possible, without having to sustain a loss in terms of functionality and looks. For the first time in many months, I purchased a new pen, namely the ‘Uni Kuru Toga Roulette’ which will soon replace my old Fisher Bullet Space Pen. (he will live on in my EDC backpack though) I’m also carrying the brilliant 'ARKtype PMK’ (Paracord Magnetic Keychain) on my belt loop, for a couple of weeks now. It’s main feature is the slim-profile magnetic clasp, which allows for quick and simple access to my keys, multi-tool & backup knife. Everything else stayed pretty much the same. I’m still in love with my 'PocketDoJo Sleeve’, which I use more often than I could’ve ever imagined! Happy Holidays, EDCers!

These are my everyday stim toys/sensory items! These are the ones that I wear every day, and take everywhere.

Starting from the left I have:

-my two favourite tangles! They’re the smoothest moving ones.
-trapezoid necklace from @stimtastic
-squid spinner ring also from stimtastic, squids are my favourite animal!
-chrysoprase pendant and fused glass rainbow pendant (good for pressure and texture stimming)
-harmony ball pendant with a metal sonic screwdriver charm attached so it makes extra sound
-lava stone pendant that you can add essential oil to as a scent stim
-very soft paracord bracelet that a friend made me. It’s become a comfort item and I never take it off
-paracord ball on a loop. I like twirling it around my hand
-klixx! It’s so satisfying to click when I’m feeling understimulated.

Anyway, these items are all on my body or close to me at all times.

They’re all very discreet and some of them aren’t even stim toys but they’ve helped me just the same. Anything can be a stim toy if you’re creative enough :)
