What's in Your Wallet?

I have found that keeping my purse, my work tote, and my wallet neat and tidy helps me to stay better organized financially. Lets start first with my work tote. Two days ago, it was a complete and total mess . During a break at work, I decided to get rid of the clutter that I was carrying around.

From the beginning, the bag does not look too messy. The contents are well contained in the cute kitty bag.

Dump it all out and it is a total disaster. Okay, it was a total disaster before I dumped it out!








I had accumulated books from old classes, toothbrushes and toothpaste, spare socks, lots of old and outdated paperwork (bills, etc). Old cards that I had made and never used. A nail file from Las Vegas, which was suppose to be for one of the girls at my office. Needless to say, she never got that little gift.

Clutter, clutter, clutter!! I made quick work of the rubbish. I seperated the necessary from the unnecessary.
What is left in the tote is now organized by folders and those cute little black clips. They keep everything in its place!! I think the tote is about 5 pounds lighter too. In a couple of days, I will reveal the contents of my neat and tidy wallet and purse.
You just never know how much stuff you can accumulate by just stuffing it into a bag!










What about you? Do you need to clean out the clutter in your tote???

I unfortunately use my purse too often to catch receipts...which would be great except for the fact that I don't need to keep the ones in there! GRRRR. About every two weeks I have to do a major clean out of receipts for things like gasoline and CVS. I really need to work on that.

Yep, I have a collection of receipts in my purse,wallet, and pocket. I try to keep them all in one place, but that does not happen very often....
