Style Guide5 Things You Shouldn't Keep In Your Wallet
Avoid the loss, theft, and damage of these five items in order to optimize your night out on the town.
Social Security Card
This one is supposed to be a no-brainer, but it’s a mistake too many guys make. That nine-digit number is all any cut-rate criminal needs to wreck your credit or steal your identity.
A clean check is an invitation to clean out your bank account. Leave them at home, and if you have to carry a check, make sure it’s filled out before you step out the door.
Multiple Credit Cards
The more options you give yourself, the more debt you’re likely to rack up. The first cards to dump? Department stores and electronic shops. If you do need to make a purchase, most can look up your account info.
You’ll get over the loss of 50 bucks a whole lot quicker than $500. Try to limit the cash you carry only to what you’ll likely need that day.
It’s not a myth: Carrying a condom in your wallet can render it almost useless. The constant friction and bending may cause microscopic holes, making it less effective in preventing pregnancy or STDs. Keep it in your front pocket instead.
