PT Money asked me and a few other bloggers, “What’s in your wallet?” Well, I can tell you it’s not Capital One. Though not for lack of trying on their end…yet somehow their incessant spamming of my real mailbox turned me off when I was looking for a credit card. Hmm. Maybe less marketing = better.
This is my wallet. It’s not that exciting, nor was it particularly expensive. In fact, I feel like it came with a purse or something. It’s a little bulkier than I might like, but I don’t need to use it much so it works just fine for me.
And this is what you see when you open it. My most-used cards and my license…isn’t my DMV picture great?
It’s not too easy to get these cards out, but it works ok. My metro card, which I use most, is actually in the billfold because it spends so much time in my pocket. But it lives in here when it’s not in my pocket.
So these are my big 4–my CVS card, my Giant card, and my old and new debit cards (both currently working, I’ll remove the old one once the account is closed).
Also, in deference to my paranoia, I also have a card basically saying that if I’m in an accident people should call Micah’s number. I got the idea from my mom who has a whole list of medicinal interactions, allergies, and whatnot. With her cancer, for instance, adrenaline could send her into a shock. I don’t have anything like that, really, so it’s just a card for getting in touch with Micah because I’d want him to know.
Inside the billfold, there aren’t any bills, just gift cards, my Border’s rewards card, my SmarTrip metro card, my library of Congress card, and a sticky note with the Dewey Decimal number of a book I was looking for. I probably shouldn’t keep some of those gift cards in the wallet. My worry is that I’ll end up somewhere without them.
And as a bonus shot, this is what’s in my old college wallet…random stuff that’s no longer in date but that I haven’t yet gotten rid of. And another note about calling Micah. And, um, my old housemate’s library card. I should get that back to her.
So that’s it, folks. What’s in your wallet? I’m not going to name people for the meme because I don’t feel comfortable putting that pressure on you. If you want to play, just link back! (And I think photos are optional…but I had the camera on hand)
