I got tagged by the what’s in your wallet meme by Prime Time Money. Must resist. Can’t resist. So here’s a picture of my wallet.
- Debit card for my checking account.
- Debit card for our joint checking account.
- Credit card from Capital One.
- Credit card from Men’s Wearhouse + Perfect Fit card. I use these to get what is effectively a 15% running discount.
- Green card. Yes, I am an alien. And no, the card is not actually green even though many aliens are.
- Employee ID card.
- Health insurance + Dental insurance card.
- A list of 13 points on how to perform CPR.
- Two dollars in cash (hockey money).
- A lifetime membership card from the American Association of Individual Investors.
- Safeway card. I don’t know why I carry this around. DW does 99% of the shopping.
- A band aid. For life threatening papers cuts, you know.
- California ID card. I don’t have a CA driving license. I never bothered to get a US license. This leaves me in the peculiar situation that I can legally drive anywhere in the world except the US.
So now you know. If you ever steal my wallet, this is what you’ll get.
And now for something completely different. A man that plays Staying Alive with his hands
This week I participated in the following carnivals
- Festival of Frugality #111 – Personal Finance Bowl – Introducing Team Frugal. I recommend Raw Food is Easier on the Budget. Raw food is something I have been experimenting with lately. I’ll report on it once I collect more data 🙂 Another thing saves a ton of money and a ton of environmental damage is to not buy anything new for a year. I have come close to this not buying more than a couple of new books in a year. Beyond that I didn’t buy anything but food.
- The Carnival of Financial Goals III included an article from Brooke that’s getting killed by electricity. We only get slightly zapped. Last month electrictywas $23.
- Here’s Your Team for The Superbowl of Personal Finance! (Carnival #138) . Another superbowl team. I liked the 8 reasons why small houses are better than big ones. I am still eyeing the tumbleweed houses. I just need to find the time and place to build one.
- Carnival of everything finance #12th edition contained a lot of recession talk, but I particularly liked Free yourself from American consumerism – another personal story.
