What's in my Wallet?


(Sorry for the lack of posts recently - we're FINALLY all moved in to the new place, with internet/cable/utilities set up and *almost* completely settled.)

I've seen this on a few other blogs, and I think it's a really cute idea!

My wallet is my most recent large purchase, and one my first purchases on my credit card. It is a Michael Kors, and I absolutely love it! I use it a lot just by itself when I'm going out. So, what's inside of it?


The front compartment has 2 slots to it and 1 zippered area for change. The front slot is for all my bills (currently $10) and the back slot holds my receipts and a few checks. I am a receipt horder, but I have been getting into the habit of cleaning it out once a week, keeping the important ones in my mini filing cabinet.

The back compartment contains all my cards. My license is the blacked-out portion and it's still from my home state... I really should update it soon since then I can make use of the near-by library! My most-used card is my WaMu Gold Debit Card. It comes with PayPass, which I have only used once at a local 7-11 but it's pretty neat and the card gives me $0.03 back per purchase, up to $250 per year. (After doing some calculations, that means I would have to use it 23 times per day to receive the maximum return, lol.) My other cards are:

  • CapitalOne Platinum Credit Card
  • Health Insurance HMO Card
  • Costco Membership Card
  • AAA Membership Card
  • Starbucks Card x2 (one might be empty... shows how much I use them!)
  • AMC MovieWatcher Card (still says I am a student, love the discount!)
  • Nordstrom Gift Card x2 (from returns I've made recently)
  • Coach Gift Card (Christmas present)
  • Victoria's Secret Gift Card (maybe $1 and some cents left on it)
The flaps in the same card-holder area continue a few business cards of acquaintances and friends, my old student I.D. card, my old debit card and my Sephora rewards card. What's in your wallet? :)

Here in Scotland we joke about the man who has money and is shopping for a wallet to keep it in. He has £20 and the wallet he buys costs £19.99!

It's just plain old pockets for me.

Your wallet is super cute. Mine is credit (3)/debit (1)/library cards (2), 3-4 receipts, and a babysitting check i need to deposit.

With WaMu checking, the 23 transactions a day thing is funny. I guess you could buy each item individually everywhere you go. :)

I cleaned out my wallet (kind of) yesterday so that I can do a similar post soon without being too embarrassed of all the clutter in my wallet. :)

Your wallet is so organized!!!!!!! I wouldn't have the guts to show my nasty excuse for a wallet on my blog!
