When you go to the store and write a check. They want your drivers license, but it's hard to take out of the slot. Put a strip of scotch tape on the end to make a tab. Now you have a pull.

Such a simple idea but how effective! Getting my license out of my wallet is the bane of my life, I will definitely try this. Thank you.

I have a PayPal card and other cards that are loaded by sources other than me. I spend what I spend and when the funds are gone, I turn my card around in my wallet. This tells me the funds are depleted and I don't even think about trying to use them.

I hope this helps.

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 father always keeps a pencil on his person. Just a short little nub of a pencil with a small bit of lead showing. He has always carried pencils because lead doesn't leak.

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 We took the outdated credit cards out and shredded (my shredder has a section for this).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.
