Lots of great suggestions here.  In addition, during the winter, I always carried a shovel.  Who knows when you might need to clean a walking path for your clients to access the home.

One thing I always carry are supplies for fixing fallen Riders. Electric/Zip ties, Rider Hangers and a Scissor. It's nice to have it on you so you can fix your fallen Riders (or a friends) on the spot!
