It Is Time To Lighten Your Wallet

It is time to lighten your wallet….and I don’t mean swapping out the black wallet for a tan one!!! Too many people are carrying around TONS of stuff in their wallets on a daily basis.

Do you REALLY need to carry EVERY single credit and debit card that you own all day long. Do you really need to carry around your library card with you. You know the library card that you use maybe once a month because you have tons of books on your kindle that you have not gotten around to reading yet, so you don’t have time to stop at the library.

Do you have to carry around that giant wad of cash…..especially when you use your credit card for all purchases anyway. Keep a few bills in there for emergencies and get rid off all the rest.

And while we are on the topic of cash take a look at all of those coins. Unless you are visiting a wishing well soon there is no need to have all those coins adding bulk to your wallet. Take them out of the wallet and put them in a jar or something at home. When that jar is full then you can take it to coinstar or a bank and get them changed into something less bulky.

I say take a look at your wallet and see what you actually use on a daily basis and then remove everything else. If the wallet is not too stuffed then you can add in things that you use at least once a month.

You should also remove all those receipts from your wallet. Are you planning on returning an item soon? If not then the receipt does not belong in your wallet. File it away or scan it and get rid of it.

Lighten up your wallet and you will be doing yourself a big favor.

  1. I feel like you’ve been peeking in my wallet. I have everything in there. I do need to clean it out and leave some of those debit and credit cards that I don’t use on a daily basis at home.

    Now my bookbag?!?! I have everything in there. That’s what I really need to clean out.

    • Well get on the cleaning bandwagon girl. Remove everything that is not necessary and you will feel much better about yourself. There is no point in lugging around stuff that you don’t actually need on a daily basis and being overstuffed only serves to make it harder to find the things that you actually do need.

  2. I agree for one basic reason…you make yourself a target.

    Women don’t have to deal with this as much. They carry everything in their purse.

    But for men, who have a big fat wallet in their back pocket…they are just inviting someone to rob them.

  3. Wow, this is interesting. Most of the time men do carry almost all the possible handy belongings along with the wallet. Right from credit cards to debit card, from library card to driving license, from extra cash to family picture everything gets into the wallet and puts extra pressure to it than it’s given capacity. Therefore the longevity of poor wallet shortens unfortunately. Hence its cool to have some tips as a substitute.
