This is how I organise my wallet. On the left I keep my cash/ debit cards – one is my personal bank account and the other is the business bank account.
The middle section has all my benefit cards from the stores.
On the right, my driver's licence is in the see-through sleeve. And then my 3 credit cards, each for a different purpose – one for groceries, one for any other household stuff that's not groceries and one for general spending. You can see I have a pen clipped there too – it fits perfectly.
Then the pockets…
The cash goes in the first one.
Any gift vouchers go in the zippered section.
And right at the back I keep my receipts until my weekly Budgeting Update day when they get removed.
The coins go in the zippered ouch at the back and my business cards go in the flap behind that. (If I get any other business cards while out, they go in my diary and then straight into Outlook).
Points to remember:
1. Each section should have its own purpose.
2. Clear out your wallet regularly (I only have a maximum of two errand days a week so a weekly clean-out is fine for me. If you run errands more than this, you might need a more frequent clean-out).
3. Return items to their homes right after you use them.
