Hello,
The reason for the question is that a couple of people posted that they had lost their wallet.
WELL!...............I'm #3.
It was not easy to replace what I had in the wallets.................everything!
I have since got all the cards and stuff replaced. Now the question is: What do you guys carry in yor wallet, and how easy would it be to replace everything. By the way, I found the wallet 2 weeks later right were I usually kept it while working. Right on top of my sockets in the top of my tool box! GGGRRRRRRRRR!!!!!!!!
Guido.

Quit carrying a wallet when I started riding tractors about 15 years ago. I carry a magnetic leather Cabela's money clip In it are DL, Cabela's Visa, CCP, 2 business cards,a photo of the 2 grandsons in laminate, 1 blank check, ICE card with daughter and sister cel number,and about $400.
Everything for the month goes on the Visa, and I mean everything. Send one payment via bank website at middle of month.I put about 35,000 a year on the card and that gets me about $500 credit at Cabela's.

You have to carry almost your life in there. Driver"s license, credit card(s), various ID cards for stores, etc. Maybe your bank or credit union ID"s. SS card, gun and carry permits. Man what a mess if you loose it. Some of those cards cost a bit of trouble to replace. Lost mine plowing out a neighbor"s driveway on an open station tractor a couple winters ago. Immediately checked road down and back, along with all the snowbanks -of course, didn"t find it. Cancelled all the credit cards, got them to reissue. Wife took me to the county clerk"s - got a coy of my birth certificate, and my concealed license, fortunately clerk was a cousin, and knew me. With those documents, I was able to reapply and get a duplicate driver"s license. And so it went - took me a couple weeks to recover most of the stuff. By that time we had a little thaw, and went back to neighbor"s driveway, found wallet sitting on top of partially melted snowbank. Little or no damage to contents. Am very careful with wallet since!

I have a friend that used to put all his construction biz on a Cabela's card, over 200K per year. Told me he got catalogs that most folks don't, and a bunch of play money. Too bad his biz went TU in 08.

Guido, I revamped mine about 4 months ago. Mine had gotten too big to be useful and get in and out of my front jean pocket.
Now!......An alumina-wallet case...protects from being scanned in your pocket!
1. Tx D.L.
2. Bank Debit card
3. 10 Business Cards
4. some cash
5. 6 to 8 other business cards and assorted info I need most every days.
I carry mine in my Left front pocket of my Wranglers.
PS... any other cards, and info I think I might need live in my old wallet, in the Console of my Pickup.
Later,
John A.

I did the same thing, just found mine a couple hours after I got a new ID card and stopped everything.........

You need to get ya a MAN PURSE.............



Wallet, glasses, camera, bandaids, small tools, nail polish, and lipstick all fit nicely......... And, you don't have the back pain from settin on a wallet all the time.....

Whatever you put in the wallet, you should have copies of all important cards and a list of emergency numbers where you can find them quick at home....

I recall there were items in our wallets while in high school. It seems that they always left a round impression onthe back of the wallet. This seemed to make the girls blush. The good old high school days of the 1950's

Never carry your SS card in your wallet, what with all of the identity theft going on these days. Memorize the number and keep the card locked away.

I carry insurance card, CC, debit, DL, plus a little cash. And the AARP card.
