What's in your wallet?

I've been reading a lot of personal finance blogs lately. Seems a bunch of them are answering the question "What's in your wallet?" I figured it might be fun to do the same here ...



So ... here's what's there right now.


  • One $20 bill

  • Thirteen Halifax Metro Transit tickets

  • Two (why two?) business cards for my financial advisor at RBC Royal Bank

  • Air Miles collector card (collector since 05/98 and I've never cashed in my points)

  • American Express Air Miles credit card -- more miles

  • Citibank MasterCard -- had this one since I was about 19

  • RBC Gold Visa -- just got this one and I've only used it once

  • RBC client card #1 for my personal accounts

  • RBC client card #2 for the shared accounts

  • Nova Scotia Health card

  • Ontario Health card in rough shape and useless

  • Rogers Video membership mood card

  • Video Difference membership card (excellent video store, BTW!)

  • Blockbuster membership card (I doubt I've ever been to Blockbuster in Halifax)

  • Company insurance card

  • Staples Dividends card

  • Hallmark Club Card

  • Carlton Cards Club card

  • Birth certificate

  • Two of my business cards

  • Toronto Police Service media card, expired 2004 but still looks cool

  • M&M Meats key tag

  • Picture of me and Amanda

  • Picture of me and my sister, circa May 1995

  • Picture of my sister and her hubby

  • Nova Scotia driver's licence

  • and, what a crumpled and torn receipt from December from what's probably Boston Pizza

Wow. That's a lotta stuff in one wallet!

  1. I never pegged you as a club card carrier. I can't believe that you haven't cashed in your Air Miles. You must have thousands. Just wait until you get a house and you can cash them in for hundreds of dollars in Rona gift certificates!!

    And yeah, where's the picture of Ewan?!

  2. Hey, I like free stuff as much as anyone else! I probably have enough air miles now to fly to Saint John.

    As for the Ewan picture -- yeah, I don't know why I don't have one in there! The only wallet-size picture I think I have of 'im doesn't look much like the modern-era Ewan. I'll see what I can slide in there. It'd be a fine addition to my wallet.

  4. You're not supposed to carry your birth certificate in your wallet!! You taught me that!

Today was my last day at work, and I'm okay with that

Today marks a weird spot on the calendar for me. It’s one of those landmarks that really doesn’t mean anything, other than to illustrate the...
