cool Lego wallet found here
How often do you think about all that stuff in your wallet? I know I don't think about it all that often, unless it is getting too chockers with old receipts and I give it a good clean out.
And how much do we take it all for granted? Reach in and grab out what you need at any time. Leave it sitting in your handbag in the front of the trolley at a supermarket on a busy Saturday during Easter and get it stolen. Much to my disgust this is what happened to me on the weekend. And the funny thing is, I thought I was keeping a (reasonably) close eye on it. Thank goodness it was just the wallet though. And the thing you never think of when you think of your wallet getting stolen? How on earth am I going to pay for all this food shopping?? Thankfully, MR was home and my mobile wasn't taken so I called him to come down and pay for it.
Apart from the annoyance of having to cancel cards and be moneyless, I'm also now without my medicare and HBF cards which I sort of need on a fairly regularly basis at the moment. I have to get all my store reward cards reissued, sort out a new driver's licence and buy a new wallet.
And really, wallet shopping is really quite a chore. My current wallet I have had for almost six years (yes, I did have to think about that quite a bit) and while it was getting a bit tatty around the edges it was the perfect size with the right amount of pockets, zips and press studs in all the right places. Getting used to a new wallet is never fun. But finding that new wallet? When you can't even use your credit card to pay for it? Much grumbles, let me tell you. Not that I have found one online that I like, because I really need to scuffle through all the pockets and feel it first, but the fact that I couldn't buy it (or anything else online) if I wanted to is somewhat annoying.
Perhaps this is a good opportunity to pay off some of my credit card?
