My keys go on a shelf the second I walk in the door.  If they don't then I will spend at least ten to fifteen minutes to find them.

Def
Mine get put on a hook right next to the door. Back at our old house idk where I put them and even the wife got up and we searched for over 30min and couldn't find them, until after I had to call off work and the wife started to cook breakfast, I saw a little shine "in" the baseboard heater, come to find out we're guessing one of our ferrets from back in the day got ahold of them and hid them.. I'm guessing that's another good reason why you shouldn't have everything all on one, cause that was both vehicles, the house and locks and other junk!

This should also reduce all the annoying sights one is normally exposed to on a road, such as other vehicles...  :D

I have a roll in the house, car and garage each.
I knew my wife was a keeper when she transitioned from calling it a knife thingy to a multi-tool.

I have a few of the credit card flat rolls stashed in various strategic locations. I also keep a mini duct tape roll in my EDC bag, which is just tape rolled around a cut off section of wire coat hanger.

I simply take out most of the cardboard ring from my duct tape roll, then fold it together and put some old bike tube over it. The tube can be cut into rubber-bands (cut diagonally for longer bands).

That's what we used to do back at lowes with packing tape, worked great, especially didn't take up so much space in a vest!

My carry method is to wait until most of the roll of tape is gone, then smash it flat to carry just the length I think I'll need. I packed a different type of satchel the year before last when I chaperoned a youth group trip to New Orleans for a week. So, in addition to the normal "disaster" prep (para cord, first aid kit, "no roll" toilet paper, garbage bag...) there were convenience items (hair ties, ziplock baggies) and those items you never know what you'll do with them until the need arises...duct tape being one of those.

It didn't occur to me to remove some of the cardboard to make the roll more smashable, so thanks for the good idea.

Oh wow, I never posted to this.

2" binder post, with a small screw eye rather than the end screw. Put a little bit of thread locker on there, and tada! Sometimes I'd put a couple washers on it to keep it all neat, or cut washers out of clamshell plastic. Then I just started wrapping the tape on the clamshell plastic.

I also have a couple of colors of electricians tape and a roll of 1" wide black duck tape hanging off my bag. Use a zip tie or a bit of paracord for a loop, key biner, molle webbing, and you're set.

I used to always have a roll of duck tape slipped over the shifter in my truck.
