I don't carry a purse, but I do carry a wallet to hold my identification and drivers license. It seems like I always need a pen to write with, but not carrying a purse or having a big enough pocket, a pen is not always available. So I took a pen refill, that goes inside of a regular ink pen, covered it with tape to make it not as slick and to give it just a tiny bit of something more to hold onto to, and I keep this pen in my wallet for when I need a writing instrument in a hurry. You can use a cheap refill, or a better quality, depending on your preferences for dependability.
My husband just had to change wallets since his old one was busting at the seams with credit cards, insurance cards, receipts and discount cards. We took the outdated credit cards out and shredded (my shredder has a section for this). Receipts were taken out and checked for recent purchases or warranties and placed in an evelope marked receipts and filed away.
Discount cards were reviewed for the places he shops the most and key tags were taken out and placed on a key ring to be kept in the car. When he shops, he just takes the keyring in with him with all the key tags, instead of overloading the wallet. His overloaded wallet was uncomfortable to sit on so cleaning was necessary.
