I'm only on one site now, so it's just:
- Keys (and keyfob)
(I'm sure there's a song about this somewhere )
Toolkit under my desk contains any tool I might need, I just pull them out as-and-when. If I get to a room and need other equipment I just head to the comms room and pick it up.

You clearly have a smaller site than we do @fairm010

Keys, work phone, mobile phone and thats it. If i need to fix a machine whilst im about ill either run back to the office to grab a screwdriver or ill take the machine back with me, running joke in the office is that taking the machine for a 'walk' from the classroom to the office fixes it! Happens about 2/3 of the time!

In my “Tech Bag” I typically have;
Can of screen cleaning foam & some dry wipes
Can of air duster
Some wet wipes (for my hands)
Some non-latex disposable gloves
Couple of memory sticks, blank
1 memory stick with Mini-XP on it
1 memory stick with the common drivers needed for our machines
Couple of sound cables
Couple of network cables of varying lengths
2 VGA male-to-male cables
2 “kettle lead” power cables
1 usb to mini-usb cable
1 “printer” usb A to usb B cable
Pens and pencils, notepad, eraser, sharpener, scissors, elastic bands, paper clips
Bunch of cable ties
Rewritable CDs and DVDs (2 of each)
iPhone charger (mine)
Nokia charger (schools)
1 USB mouse (always seem to get pinched by whoever sees it first!)
I don't take this to every job though, only the ones I know will need something or if I'm going to be out of the office for a while.
On myself I usually have 2 mobile phones, keys for the whole school (I'm the stand-in site agent should the Premises Manager and his assistant be away for any reason), various fobs for entry to doors.
Sometimes I have my iPad so I can remote into my servers should I need to, but usually that's done from the machine I@m fixing if the need arises.
I don’t take a laptop of my own, never needed to really.
