Monday 21 July 2008 What's in your wallet?

Debit card
Credit card

Pay for my swimming session on direct debit. This is the proof.

Book of stamps

I always used to wonder what those blokes toting inch thick wallets or the women whose purses strained at the seams where carrying around. For years, I carried a debit card and nothing else. What was all that crap? Now, I'm beginning to understand. Other that the debit, JezUK, and swimming card, nearly everything else gets used from less than once a fortnight to (hopefully) never. I'm only carrying all this stuff around because it's credit card shaped and I've nowhere else obvious to keep it.
