Whats in your... sock drawer?

I've been giving a lot of thought tonight about clearing out my wallet of the "dead weight" 

The cards I got because they were easy but now have little need for, thus they will be going into the sock drawer once I zero out the balances. 



So far my sock drawer is home to only 1 card. My Cap1 secured card. The first one I got on my rebuilding journey. 

However, it will have some company in a week or so. Once my Meijer bill posts I'm going to zero that one out as well and SD the card. 



So, whats in YOUR sock drawer? 

Walmart Discover ($5000) - Amazon ($5500) - Cap1 Cash Rewards ($2000) - Meijer ($5000) - Discover More ($1800) - Car Care One ($2100) - Amex Delta Skymiles ($2000) - Citi Thank You Preferred ($2000) - Chase Freedom ($500) - Sam's Club, GE ($1237?)
