    Not to genderize this thread, just wondering: are all of you male? I thought men's wallets are tiny ... how do you fit all of these things in there! :eek:

    My (female) wallet just holds a few dollars, driver's license, bank card, library card (x 2!), video rental card, auto insurance card and a few receipts. That's it. :p

    I just got paid for a job, and closed my WI bank accounts, so I have a little more cash and Cashiers Checks than a guy myself really should carry. I also have a worthless debit card, a worthless (high) school ID and some pictures of people I don't even know... a baby and some Latvian kids, so I look compassionate.
