What's in Your Wallet? - Page 2

post #16 of 79
The usual suspects . . . plastic, some paper money, requisite information. The most amazing survivor in my wallet is my draft card, which I've kept since I registered for the armed forces . . . at age, 18.

Cash, credit cards, driver's license, Blue Cross, Delta flyer card, insurance card for auto, Sams', Costco.

I tend to favor the larger Euro width so I can get the British pound notes in the wallet and it also seems more comfortable. I've had good luck with my coach but I may do an April in Paris bespoke soon.

Second this. Throw in a Discover Card. I use my points to buy nice coffee table art books.

I use a LV Taiga card case that has room for about 8-10 credit cards and some folded bills, works quite well.

Interesting that nobody seems to carry checks. I've always thought it an elegant way to pay for things. Regards, Huntsman

It reminds me of the soccer mom pulling out the dog-eared checkbook to write checks for her groceries, IMHO.

Burned mine.

In rough order of what I see: Cash, Publix gift card which I purchase to divert enough money to getting groceries, Domino's Pizza "free large cheese or 1-topping pizza" voucher which I need to use soon, ATM card, Regal Crown Club card, Sam's Club Business Member card, insurance cards, Florida driver's licence, AAA member card. I carry no credit cards, I avoid them like the devil. I think I lost my draft card somewhere, but it doesn't matter since I can just run away to Canada. Dual citizenship is a wonderful advantage.

Two Mastercards, an ATM card, a drivers license, train ticket, two Amexes (one personal, one professional).
A little bit of cash.
Some receipts, some emergency business cards.
A train schedule (business-card size).
A Yankees ticket (at the moment).
And 50 Moroccan Dirhams. The last is especially useful.

EDIT: I pay for everything I possibly can with credit cards. Not only do you get miles or cash back, but you get the float too. I think it's crazy not to, TBH. I haven't paid for anything in a store with a check since colllege, AFAIK.

Carrying checks is cumbersome. My cards and folded cash are half the size of a check. Besides, I always get stuck in line behind someone who pays with a check. First they write the check out nice and neatly. Then they scratch their signature. Fiddle while tearing it out of the book. Then get to wait as they enter it into their check register whilst the cashier is waiting for them to finish so they can collect their receipt and purchases.

Much faster to just use cash or an ATM card. Last time I paid with a check was two weeks ago (pre-written at home) for car miles service. They gave me the check back as they processed it as an e-check; had I known that I would have just used my ATM card.

Anyways, I carry my DL, ATM card, AAA card, and that's it. Don't like to carry a lot with me.

I use a large 1930s crocodile Asprey wallet, which has enough room for credit cards, cards in general, bills of various sizes, notepaper, and one of those "continental" check books, which detach from the side instead of the top.

You carry this on your person? Doesn't it get bulky/cumbersome?
