My Pocket Situation


Winter time isn’t so bad because the cold weather allows for a favorable pocket situation.  Pocket space is key for non-pursecarriers, since everything we want to have on us for the night needs to fit within potentially strict confines.  With the limited carrying capacity afforded by pant pockets alone, jacket pockets are a rare luxury during the harsh, treacherous, phlegmy months of winter.  There’s a certain solace and security in excess storage space.  At the very least, it will lighten the load when we smainter.

I’ve got a very effective organizational pocket system, and I stick to it.  My wallet, keys, and various other accessories have designated locations, which can change depending on the quantity and volume of pockets available, but are generally pretty consistent.  Sure, it sounds a little obsessive, but you know what?  I don’t ever have to say ridiculous things like “Where’s my phone?” because I know exactly where my phone is.  Front left pants pocket.  Easy.

    Personal Cell = Left front pants pocket
    Work Mobile = Shares Left front pants pocket
    Small Wallet with strong magnetic clip = Right front pants pocket
    Keys = Shares Right front pants pocket.

    A tried and true system.

    When you live/work/spend any decent amount of time in a somewhat major city, you have to abandon the high school pocket organization and completely ditch the back pockets.

    Front pockets all the way. Now there is no way someone will be pick-pocketing me without old Mr. Happy taking notice of some strangers hand nearby.
