What is in Your Wallet?

What do you keep in your wallet?

 

 

My standard wallet has:  

2 credit cards, (3 Maximum).

Driver's License

A couple of my business cards

Cash (normally $70:  1 $50 bill and 1 $20 bill)  I hate using cash, but I've been stuck in positions where I need it for a cab, need to tip someone for something, or just don't want to leave a paper trail with a purchase or two.

 

I leave all of my store discount cards and etc. at home and only grab them when I need them.  Many of them have phone apps so I don't need the actual card (my starbucks gold card, for instance).  I've taken pictures of my insurance cards and saved them on my phone so I have that info if I need it in an emergency and the cards are sock drawered unless I'm actually going to the doctor's office.

 

 

What about you?  Why?

I've only ever used a cab twice, and both times alcohol was involved!

Re: What is in Your Wallet?

DL 2 personal cards

3 business cards

Fedx office card

1 personal debit

1 business debit and a lot of family photos

Before you app think...
Have you done your research of the CC?
Does it fit your spending?
Do you have a plan for the bonus w/o going into debt?
Can you afford the AF?
Do you know the cards benefits? Is it worth the HP?

DL and 3 cards - SPG, CSP and Amex Business.

 

I prefer very thin billfolds.  I prefer to keep what I carry to a bare minimum.

Hmmm,

 

A credit card, an ID, insurance card, and a couple bucks.  All I need.

I don't know of a cab that doesn't take credit. In my area, we have uber cabs. They arrive after you text message your address to their relay system. Then they automatically bill your credit card on file.
