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!

DL 2 personal cards

3 business cards

Fedx office card

1 personal debit

1 business debit and a lot of family photos

This point should be stressed more here an app spree should not be encouraged because its not for every profile
A thick file will support more apps at one time while a thin file may see negative reaction to this process

IMHO 4+ at one time is to many for a new file and it should be kept to 1-3 a year but we get caught up sometimes in seeing the little wheel spin and the words approved

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.

Too many INQs & low AAoA so I'm off to tend the Garden.     Age:23
