Where do you keep your cards?

Ok this is probably a silly question, but seriously, where do you folks (the ones with LOTS of cards) keep yours?  I only have 6 but still feel uncomfortable carrying them all in my wallet.  I recently took Cap 1 and BoFA and locked them up in my little safe.  They are put away but still active as I have Truecredit being charged to BoFA each month and my tolltag goes to Cap 1.  I still keep my 2 NFCU's, HSBC and Target in my wallet.  I'm thinking I am going to move one of the NFCU's to the safe as well. I figure I  need to carry 2 of my majors with me all the time and my Target just in case.  So just curious, where do you keep your plastic?

Re: Where do you keep your cards?

The three that I use are in my wallet. The others are literally in my sock drawer. Smiley Happy The BT card, which must not be used for purchases until the BT is paid off, is in a sealed envelope in the sock drawer. No oopsies allowed.

I don't keep any of my CC on me at all i have an old check book box where i keep all my CC an it's on my computer desk. Maybe i should keep one card on me in case of an emergency but right now i don't feel the need to do so cause that will only temp me to spend.

In public? I don't like to use it in dark alley atm machine. LOL. I know I need to ditch it, for some reason it makes me feel better to hold it just until it is or almost is 3 years.  Stupid I know. Here I am walking around with Chase, Discover and BofA and I still have my 1st premier open. Smiley Very Happy

I only use my 1st Premier to pay my NETFLEX bill every month. So i don't use mine in the public maybe once when i first got it not that i'm ashamed to use it. Now if push come to shove i will pull it out to use in a emergency. But basically i'm just using it to rebuild.

I did most of my spending online with it too. I didn't feel so bad about my orchard card, which I still also have because they keep waiving my AF and last time reversed my CLI fee. I don't mind using that one. But the 1st Premier card ugly design even looks like it shouts "Hey, this person has bad credit".
