I use an old water bottle...holds 2 tubes, 2 CO2, multitool, tire levers, some cash, cell phone and car keys. Keeps everything nice and dry if I get stuck in the rain, too. Of course, if you only have one bottle cage, this could be an issue.

is this just a curious question? Since you dont ride a road bike you would not need to really know this ;)

Nothing wrong with a good seat bag to carry essentials.  Or better yet a hydration pack for your water and an assortment of stuff you may need on an extended ride into the woods.  Stuff some food in there too in case you're out longer than intended.   ;)
