How To Slim Down Your Wallet

What do you think should be included in every wallet? There are a few obvious things such as a debit/credit card, a license, even the insurance cards could be considered a "must-have." 

But what about the random cards you’ll need maybe once a month? Does the local coffee shop punch card or even your library card make the cut? It comes down to the type of lifestyle you choose; are you the “George Costanza" of wallets or the “debit card & license stashed in your phone case,” type of person. 

I had breakfast with a friend this week and he argued that he doesn’t need anything else beyond an ID and debit card. Learning to ask "why" do I have this card with me will help in reducing the clutter in your pocket, hencemaking life easier.

The “Must Haves” Wherever You Go:

The identification card is a must when slimming down the wallet, whether you are walking through TSA or trying to grab a beverage from the local watering hole, you’ll depend on your ID to get you there. 

Additionally, licenses like boating, fishing or hunting cards may be a must-have in certain individual’s wallets, while some people may need to carry a card to get into their apartment, access gates at work, etc. 

A way to pay is a modern-day must; debit and credit cards are more convenient than carrying cash with you everywhere.


Must Have List:
-License 
-Way to Pay. Debit / Credit Card
-Insurance Cards
-Permit Cards
-Access Cards
-Spare Cash

Do Loyalty Cards Make the Cut?

Nearly every retail store we shop at has a program set up to bring you back for follow-up purchases. In many cases it does work to create a customer excited for their next discounted visit, but do you really need ten different loyalty cards in your wallet? 

Hopefully, the store has a way to connect your phone number to the card; that is how I got rid of all mine. Using digital-application alternatives can free up a lot of space and keep record of cards you do not need everyday, check outLastPass Wallet.
