Fat Wallet Diet

I don’t throw things away, which means my wallet just accumulates stuff. Not money, of course – that never stays in the wallet very long – but cards of various kinds.

My wallet was getting overweight – a little bulge around the middle. It needed to get a little more trim, so I put it on a low-card diet. That Dr. Atkins knew what he was talking about – cut some of the cards out of the wallet and its girth shrunk in half.

What? He said “low-carb diet”?

Oh well, my wallet’s doing fine now, but I’ll keep it away from carbs too, I suppose.

In case you’re wondering: 3 expired credit cards, expired zoo membership card, old Blockbuster card, old AAA membership card, some business cards, and phone cards (2 pre-paid (mostly used up), 1 account-type thingy).

Now it came about as they were emptying their sacks, that behold, every man’s bundle of money was in his sack; and when they and their father saw their bundles of money, they were dismayed.

    I hate extra stuff in my wallet. Even your new wallet setup would drive me crazy.

    I won’t even keep gift cards in my wallet. They stay in the car until I use them.

    I don’t carry cash, either. One check card, my ID, a picture of my wife, and that’s pretty much it.

    Well, there goes my plan to mug Ricky Anderson for extra cash. Thanks for dashing my hopes and dreams, Ricky Anderson.

    Thin wallets are better for the back. I found that out through experience.

    All I could think about was George Constanza and his wallet. And any time I think of George Constanza is a good time.

    Scott – glad I could help.
