I'm like Fiddy, I have a Batman style utility belt with consumables sort by pounch, so I can quickly know what to grab.

A sporran would be thematic, triple so this year, though then some may suggest you also get the kilt to go with it. If you’re going RP utilikilt is out sadly as they make amazing kilts with all the pockets required and no sporran. A leather satchel or a chain mail dice bag are also both options that could be thematic. Honestly a burlap sack is probably the closest thing you could get to RP, unless you only used gear that represented the tokens your character had with them. At that point you could just sew the token into the prop though, little glass jars of healing potions and sacks and coils of rope.

These are good suggestions. Do you know a good source for any of these? I was thinking I will buy something at GenCon, but prices might be higher than otherwise.

Actually, I have one - I will see if I can find a picture of it. I believe I got it as a "belt pouch" from armstreet. More accurately, it is a reinforced leather container that attaches to a belt. It has a nice medieval feel and is extremely sturdy.

It looks my exact make may not currently be available but the ones there are very similar. You just take your consumables, put them in pouches (or tubes) and throw them into this bag. The bag is sturdy and secure and looks a thematic fit.

Another option I thought of, dice bags with internal pockets. Like this one . (Note: While I have something similar, it is from a different creator that has disappeared. I can't speak to this specific item)

I really like the dice pouch Fiddy, I'll have to pick one of those up!

As an aside, I don't have any financial ties to them - I'm just a customer, but I strongly recommend Armstreet. I have a good deal of stuff from them and it is very good quality. My rogue and wizard outfits come from there - even the boots are excellent. They do a lot of custom work (it's the same cost) - if you have clothes done through them, do your measurements and send them in instead of generic sizes, you'll get a better fit. One word of warning on them, though - you won't get your order right away. They are serious when they say shipping is 21-30 days (different items have different shipping times but that is a common range for them) - so if you are buying something for a specific event - plan it out a good 2 months in advance.

I have one of those, used to try to use it like that. But the tokens didn't stay in the pouches very well, and it was slower to track them (th pouches being unlabeled. My bag is also cloth, so a leather bag, or just a larger/deeper one my work better.
