    I guess I'm a 5 year lurker, as I once upon a time missed the opportunity to 'introduce' myself. I'm not sure if this is a requirement to making a New Thread... but I'm now combing The Rules looking for how to make a new post and guess I'm filling this req, if it is such. I've only been able to respond to a thread. Anyway, hi. I split my time between the US and another country, and have, ahem, varied professional, um, experiences. To quote Forrest Gump, that's all I have to say about that. I like shiny stuff, sharp stuff, and titanium stuff, and have an ongoing relationship with all things Molle. My budget, however, does not allow for many of the high-end trinkets and gadgets y'all flaunt so expertly. What would a reasonable percentage of monthly income spent on EDC stuff be anyway?

    Thanks to everyone for all the super cool posts, pics, and ideas I have observed over the years. Now onto my mission of how to share things back, via a new thread...

    Welcome aboard from Indiana! And...I'm the last person to ask about reasonable EDC expenses. ;)

    Personally I spent a lot over the first year of trying new stuff I saw here and elsewhere, but I haven’t spent a dime (for myself, not counting gifts) in over 2+ years after dialing in my EDC including basically every category on this forum. That doesn’t stop me from looking for the next best thing, mind you! Best of luck
