What's In Your Wallet

Well my wallet just split apart so I'll being getting a new one this afternoon but I was treated to a delightful collection of junk:

My Wallet's Contents
$57 in cash mostly ones which is why it probably burst.
A fortune from chinese new year
My selective service registration card
My social security card (feel free to chastise me for carrying in my wallet, my wife yells at me all the time)
ATM card
credit card
costco card
cobb county library card
rei member card
adventure cycling member card
admission card to the Georgia archive
a 3 year old gift card to the container store
blood donor card
instructions card for ipod shuffle
photos of the wife and kids
AAA card
starwood preferred guest card
MARTA breeze card
and a variety of business cards from lawyers and salesmen

edit: I forgot the pictures of my kids.


So what do you have?

IMO SS card are like license plates, they only do you good if you're a criminal to begin with and if you want something it doesn't matter if its given to you or if you have to dig for it.

Do you get any discounts or anything with the metis card? I'm curious if you would actually use it on a day to day basis.

And you can scrap the safeway club card, you can give them your phone number - it's connected to your club card #

Credit union card
Credit card
Debit card
Drivers license
Health insurance card (I hesitate to call what I have health insurance)
Liability insurance card
