I do not, I live in Denmark and we have government paid hospitals etc., you have to carry it, so they have your info (allergies etc.) in case of you get injured.

I carry:

ID cards
AMEX (stopped carrying my other CC since 99/100 places take AMEX)
Bank card x 2 (one has 1k credit on it for emergencies)
metro card

and a money clip with about $100 depending on where I'm going.

I should probably start carrying my insurance cards.

I always try to carry at least a double sawbuck in cash with me at all times.

You should definitely carry your insurance card. In case of emergency, the EMS will look at your card to find out that you have insurance and which hospital to take you. I have good insurance which means a good hospital. Don't want to wind up at some dump

Is it a good idea to put multiple cards/things in one slot? I generally haven't done this...

I avoid this because it can stretch out the slot, making it too loose to hold only 1 card in the future...which is why my wallet has a lot of slots.

Driver's License
Insurance Card
Debit Card
Credit Card
Concealed Carry License
AAA
A few other random cards for various stores/restaurants

Try to keep as slim as possible

$20
1 AMEX
1 VISA
1 Drivers License / ID
1 Insurance Card
1 Student ID

And I'll keep receipts if it's from something iffy (i.e. bars, or pizza delivery) or just randomly and clear out at the end of the day.

It can stretch out the slot, but the only side effect of that I've encountered is that it's easier to get your card out when you want to. I've never had stuff fall out of my wallet apart from coins and occasionally my knife, but that's when I do something stupid like hold it upside down and try to open it. Generally, the curve the wallet takes on from being wrapped around your ass and the friction keeps everything in place.

Coins in Japan are kind of a hassle, because it's also kind of common courtesy to try to pay in exact change or in an easily changeable amount - the 500 yen coins are worth like $6.50 now, and pretty heavy, the 10yen are the size of a nickel, the 1 yen is the size of a dime - I need a separate coin purse but that is kinda limpwrist.gif

I have only 4 slots in mine.

The following I have or considering having:

Driver's License
Insurance Card
Muni/Subway Pass
Cash
Credit Card 1
Credit Card 2
Debit Card

Based on discussions here, I can perhaps exclude cash a second credit card and my insurance card. Possibly.

So must haves are: Driver's License, Credit Card 1. Possibly Debit Card. Although my Muni/Subway Pass could just go separate and with my company building ID (too big for a wallet).
