Hi Jac. I have three organizers from EASTSPORT that I have picked up at thrift shops for 1-2 bucks each. They are great, hold lots of stuff, hace several compartments and loops. Very compact and can be worn on a strap or belt. Tried to find a link for you but thier website is hard to negotiate. You might like the design. One of mine is a survival kit on the belt of my 7 day pack.

Ok, it's been a couple of weeks so I thought I'd give you an update. It now holds:

-cash, calling card, copies of id and emergency contact info
-small note pad, pen, pencil, sharpie
-mag lite solitare, 2 extra batteries
-whistle, fire steel, compass, straw with cotton balls
-disposable rain poncho
-eye glasses repair kit
-CPR face shield, assorted bandaids, prep pads, polysporin
-folder, mini bic, duct tape (on gift card), zip ties
-lip balm, safety pin, paper clip, nail clippers (with file)
-2 tampons, 2 thin maxi pads

It's a nice little kit and it spen4 a total of 2 days in my pocket. It lives in my jeep! Way too big for me for comfortable pocket carry. It'll be great to throw into a daypack though.

I picked up a little Osprey Digi Stow today to address my wallet issue. It's just big enough to hold my phone, bank card and some cash! (I do have and use aregular wallet, but I want something to take when I don't want to carry my purse.)

I made a couple more changes to this kit today. I swapped out the folder for my Gerber Recoil. (I like the versatility of having a multitool. I didn't think it wojld fit as well as the thin profile of the knife, but, it does.) I also added some more coin and paper money. (This kit either rides in my Jeep or my edc backpack, but it could also be grabbed from the Jeep if I was in a hurry.)
