This is a list of a base 100 items, although some of the results have more than one item listed, that could be found in the pockets, or for that matter, purse or handbag, of an individual from the end of last century into this.
These could be picked from a pocket or looted from a corpse after a zombie apocalypse. Some are potentially useful; others, not so much. Some of the results, especially but not only those that are related to portable electronics, also give the approximate years in which they would start to be seen, allowing the list to be altered for different dates.
To use the list, either roll d100 to select a random result, or choose the preferred ones manually.
