Yep, that's the question, when you go on a location shoot, what do you bring besides camrea, reflectorsfilm, flash and the regular equipment?
Was just looking at my toolbox and decided that I need to get some more supplies. Once I am done with my list, I'll post it for you. In the meantime, if anypone wants to share their toolbox, go ahead.

I have these small clips I purchased at Home Depot to secure outfits that fix to large. A set of small scredrivers, and a small roll of duct tape; to hold a reflector on a stand or tripod.

What stuff do I carry not including cameras and lenses and flash and filters, etc?

To start with, extra batteries (both for cameras and flash units, etc). Never be caught without spares. Then gaffer tape. Useful in way too many ways to count. Then electrician's tape and a thin roll of cloth tape. Red and black fine-point Sharpies and a ball-point pen. A Swiss Army knife. A small pair of scissors. A loupe. A film changing bag. A small case that fits 10 CDs. A couple of the worst Polaroids I ever shot as good-luck charms. And I don't take pain pills very often, but you might want to consider a small bottle of Advil...

Something I have found to be invaluable is a pair of strobe haed clamps that enable me to place my strobes anywhere I can. Comes in handy in tight places.

also I have lens clothes, a Warm Card (anyone shooting digital must have one in my opinion, but currently I use it for video), extra 35mm canisters, fine sharpies, omin bounce. Sample light get swatches that I tape to my 550ex to change the flash color, and duct tape.

Besides the usual photo equipment, the most important items I never do a location shoot without are:

Bug Spray ( deepwoods Off or Cutters Deepwoods or both )
A folding chair to put my equipment on
An oversized beach umbrella. (in Florida the weather can change without notice)
