What's In Your Wallet?




After a WONDERFUL walk down the Coney Island boardwalk with my husband, son and Godmother I reached in my pocketbook to pull out my wallet and lo and behold it wasn't there. Now folks we are talking about the crowded Coney Island boardwalk on a Sunday of a holiday weekend. I knew for sure that someone had pick pocked me! But how? My pocketbook was strapped over my shoulder and in front of me the entire time.

As I'm totally freaking out, my husband, the cool cucumber kept saying are you sure you even had your wallet? It was a big chance that it either fell out of my purse in the car or that is was sitting at home nice and safe in the purse I wore earlier in the day. I was on pens and needles the entire ride home (it wasn't in the car) thinking about all the things I had in my wallet that would need to be canceled and replaced.

I thought about identity thief's having a field day with my SS number, because my card was in my wallet. I thought about the piece of paper with the SS# of each of my family member's (why do I have that in my wallet?), my license, bank cards, credit cards etc... I was dreading the possibility that all was lost! Thankfully after the longest ride home in the history of rides home, my wallet was tucked safely in the purse from earlier in the day (Thank You Lord)! This got me to think about all the items in my wallet that shouldn't be in there. So I took a quick look on the internets to see what I should and shouldn't keep in my wallet. Here is the best list I could find, so I'm sharing with you!
