    I used my CRKT m16 to break into my house after leaving the house key at the in laws, and I used my flashlight to look for my leatherman sidekick under the couch.

    used the scissors of my leatherman micra to cut some loose threads on my bag as well as open up some packed snacks.

    I used my pioneer to open a bag of planting earth for re-planting the cucumbers.

    changed out the stoppers on the 2 bathroom sinks

    used my Fenix E12 for light, my SAK for cutting open packages and prying open the broken drain plug.
    used the saw on my Gerber Suspension to cut through 2 peices that had been rusted so bad i couldn't get them apart.

    My LM Wave got a surprising amount of use out in the woods today while I was doing archery, to pull the arrows out of trees, logs, pipes and just about everything I hit that wasn't the target.

    Got a D25LC2 today (After a 4 week wait!) and dropped it running down a main road after we saw a dog in the middle of it. It's scuffed up, and I'm :censored:ted off about it, but it is what it is.

    Put a collar and a tag on your animals folks!

    Used my "Uncle Bills Silver Gripper" tweezers to get compacted and jammed paper out of the shredder at work. Now it works again.

    Zebra mini expandz pen filling in a bunch of stuff at the bank ( if there was more than one cashier doing anything she could have inputted it directly but as it stands it was self service if you want anything doing. Load of rubbish. They, Barclays, should try and concentrate on customer service rather than explaining to old folk how to buy stuff online)

    I used my LM Wave today to fix a set of wind chimes, the cord holding the paddle had broken and needed replacing. First the knife to cut a piece of paracord then the pliers to pull a couple of interior strands out of the piece.

    I used my LM PS at work today to remove a snapped off piece of lead that was stuck inside a hand powered pencil sharpener. I used my pentel twist erase to take notes in two different band rehearsals today. Finally, while showing a younger player how to play a note at band rehearsal tonight, I noticed one of my keys was binding up and I used the file/screwdriver on my Style PS to adjust the screw to keep the key from binding.

    I didn't! But it was nice knowing I had it there.

    Yesterday, however,, used my MT to snip the strings on my guitar and then trim the new ones down, and also used my torch to check the back of the oven at work - it's about 3 meters deep and dark, sometimes theres a sneaky loaf of bread which wants to bake a little longer ;)

    I put a roof jack on the gas pipe on the roof that supplies the roof unit.(never done originally) Roofer will finish this when he fixes hole in roof. Changed out the seal tite conduit feeding same unit, made it longer as it was pulled up when unit was learning to fly. Only thing is I used real tools as EDC ones wouldn't really do the job. You know right tool for the job. :D
