    What is something men should have in their wallets? I got a new credit card holder and intend to use that for my wallet. I don't like big wallets with tons of stuff in there. So I was thinking, ID, credit card, (2nd credit card or debit card?) and either cash or my insurance cards. It has only 4 slots but don't need everything with me... well, so I think...

    That's a fuck load of cards, Joffrey. I don't need my cc on me when I go out the door, I mean yeah maybe some kidnappers with a handy Visa swipe terminal might kidnap me and hold me til I give them $30,000, but I'll risk that. I really only need some cash and my ID (I keep it in a plastic sleeve with my matching health insurance card on the back)....

    That said, I carry everything, I have a wallet that is 2.5" thick. It's receipts, cash, there's coins in the coin pocket, about 15 different cards, about 30 business cards, it's a mess. I am seriously getting back pains. :fu:

    Need new wallet and lifestyle.

    Is there a reason why people disable embedding youtube videos they upload? I've never uploaded there so I'm dumbfounded as to why someone would make it more difficult to view their videos

    I have a passcase wallet that I pulled the passcase out of, to use that pocket as a coin pouch (eliminates the flap, and it's deep enough the coins stay in). 9 plastic cards of assorted kinds in 4 slots, plus a few business cards. Cash, usually $60ish. Small Swiss army knife in the fold, band-aids, passport card, condom, voter registration card, emergency check.

    It comes in at under an inch thick. A little more if there are a bunch of coins, but I clear out anything less than quarters at the end of the day.

    I'm not a minimalist, but you're doing something seriously wrong.

    Well, the longish short of it is/was that I live in a cash-only/business-card heavy culture man. In America I'd probably have a 1/2" thick cardholder or something, and $60 on me too.
    Basically in Asia though, I pay for everything in cash; if I give them a big bill, I'll end up with more bills, coins and a paper receipt to go back in there. Meet people, get business card. Buy coffee, get plastic membership card. Go to dinner, get huge envelope-wrapped receipt and at the end of a big meal I can't be bothered to fiddle with it, so I'll stuff that in there. Go to clinic, get plastic membership card. I have a US driver's license, an alien registration/visa for Korea I have to carry, an alien registration/visa for Japan that I have to carry, and then I actually only have one bank card and one cc. Even just a week of that though, and neglecting to maintenance my wallet = 3" wallet.

    What is more important? A second credit card or a bank card?

    Also, cash or insurance card?
