You sleep with your clothes on?
Pajamas have pockets.
At home I'm usually carrying around my phone, Spyderco Chaparral or DFII, and L3 L11C. I'm also usually wearing my watch and my wedding ring. Everything else stays in a very accessible location in case I need it, but those are the things I try not to get stuck on the other side of the house without having on me.
I'm rarely without cell phone, SAK, and flashlight.
first things on getting out of bed in the a.m. are sf e1d, bm folder, & phone. last things off before retiring in the p.m. are the same. weight of ccw gear gets removed fairly soon after getting home.
It's cause we're bearded studs that wear big hats in the sun.
The mower shop guys asked me yesterday;
"When did you join Duck Dynasty?"
I get that allot too. How about we start edc dynasty.
I explained that it was a heat sink, facial protectant, sun block, and intimidation tool. Cavemen supposedly used to use their beard for intimidation, kinda like a big lion mane....
Lou_G can join us. He's pretty furry in the facial area.
They only love me for my beard....
Duh @Lou-G is a rad dude have your seen the video of lou getting pepper sprayed...
Pretty much pocket dump everything except for flashlight and ccw. While sleeping they are within an arm's reach. Then all back on the next morning.

I've probably said this already, but the two items that I find myself using the most, and I find my family asking to borrow the most is my SAK, and my flashlight, so those are the two things I tend to try to keep on me at home (at a minimum).
I have a principle now that if I need to pocket dump any item when I get home or to work then that item is no longer part of my on body EDC. I got into EDC specifically to stop having to do that.
I get home and dump cash and wallet. I always have a torch and a knife on me and regularly use them
Wow. Unless I don't get out of my work clothes, I carry nothing around the house.
Well, to each his own. I just don't see the need to carry around my wallet, pocket first aid kit, and cell phone when I'm at home. It's just extra weight that I don't need. It's pretty rare that I need those items at home and if I do, they're right across the room or there's better options closer to me in the case of the FAK and the phone.
I do always have at least a flashlight, knife, and my keys on me whenever I'm home.
I'm often phoned at home so that is usually on me. I have a small phone though not a smart phone monster. My wallet is a front pocket carry minimalist wallet specifically so that I barely know it's there and my FAK is in my bag not my pockets.
After trying it out for a while now, I'm swapping out my Fenix E15 for a Fenix E12 for my around home EDC flashlight. I like the clicky switch, and the low-med-high UI, along with the simple AA batter for a light that I use frequently for a minute or two here and there, both in the house and around the yard (and am often asked to borrow by other family members).
As I said earlier it is partnered with a SAK (Victorinox Craftsman currently), and Cell Phone around the house.
I do not carry anything. I come home and everything gets dumped in my EDC tray and charger.
I "might" put my phone in the same room I am in if I am expecting an important call, but that is rare as most calls can wait and I will return them when I can.
EDC tray is in the bedroom. There is a drawer with similar items in the kitchen as well as my office. I have no need to carry around a flashlight, pocket knife, multitool, etc as there is always one an arms reach away or in the next room.
But what about my CCW? It is for CCW, not home protection. If someone has the capabilities and time to get past me home security, Ill have something much bigger waiting for them on the other side.
At home, usually just a knife in my pocket. I live in a small apartment, with edc stuff in the living room and bedroom, so anything else I might need is generally within a few paces.
