View Full Version : What's in your wallet?

04-21-2004, 09:43 PM
I was talking with my friend and was thinking it'd be interesting to do a survey type thing about where people keep their wallets. Mine is in my back right pocket. It just doesn't feel right when it's in the left one.

Also, how much money do you try and keep in your wallet, who/what do you have pictures of, what kind of wallet is it? All that kind of interesting stuff...

Anyway, I have this leather Hurley wallet. It's the only thing I own with the word "Hurley" on it, and I bought it because I had 20 bucks at Pac Sun and it was 16. It's the kind that snaps together because that's fun. I try not to keep too much money in it because if I have a lot of cash in it, it'll get spent really fast. The first picture in my wallet is of my car. Then there's lots of friend's pictures, then my guitar and Katie Holmes. I like that girl.

Okay, maybe a dumb thread, but I'm really interested in the question of where people keep their wallets. Back right pocket? Back left? Front? Purse? WHAT?! ANSWER THAT!!!!!!

P.S. That's right, I started a thread. What's up now, homey.

In my pocket, wouldn't make sense to keep it out of my pocket when I'm out :p I keep money and cards in it - hardly need to store anything else in it :p

In my pocket with my driver's license, some money, a credit card, a debit/atm card and a few punch cards and reciepts.

Oh, what credit card numbers do people keep in their wallets?

04-21-2004, 10:12 PM
I have £82.40, my Driving License, my 'Game' Reward Card and some lint.

I keep my wallet in my back pocket, on the right side. I've had my blue, velcro wallet since I was ten, and it shows. I keep up to twenty dollars in there, random receipts, cards of all kinds. No pictures of any sort.

My wallet is utilized, but not decorated, I suppose.

Numbers people, we need credit card and driver's license numbers so that we know you aren't lying. :p

I really dont have a wallet. I have a bag that hangs off my belt usually, or I just shove things in my pockets. I have a weird orange notebook thing that I've written numbers down in... couple safety pins, 2 bucks in change, some Fast Pass things from Disneyland I never used... and I think thats it.

04-21-2004, 11:42 PM
I can't be bothered to look but from what I can remember..

- Hardly any money, I usually pay for stuff with card, and use up change pretty quick.

- Lots of cards - driving license, library card, reward cards and other stuff

- A little picture of Tifa that my friend drew ^_^

That's all really.


And I keep it in my bag.

Alright, no one's mentioned it yet which leads me to believe that some people are lying. Why hasn't anyone mentioned that they carry a condom in their wallet?

I have not lost a single thing since I gave up walletdom :D
