If you misplaced your wallet today, would you remember what was in it? I don't mean the cash, that's probably gone, but which credit cards and identifying information were you carrying? And could you remember all of them quickly enough to get them cancelled before someone used them? Or, worse yet, before someone used them to commit identity theft?
I know I'd have no clue.
But there's a quick and easy way to keep track of the contents in your wallet – your photocopier or scanner! Just take out all the credit cards, driver's license, anything important enough to be in your wallet – and lay them all out on your photocopier or scanner. Copy or scan your cards – then flip them all over and do the back. Now you have a record of every card in your wallet AND the customer service numbers on the reverse side!
Now you'll always know what's in YOUR wallet!
This is a GREAT idea! However, be sure to put that copy in a secure location (a safe or safety deposit box.) Otherwise, if anyone finds it, it could be used to charge on your accounts or steal your identity.ReplyDelete
