I photocopy my credit cards, ID, HMO membership, llibrary card, etc. (I skip the burrito punch cards.) Copy both sides.

  • Tape over signatures: On my credit cards and Driver's License I put a piece of clear cellophane tape over the signature to prevent the signature from rubbing off. --Rosso 13:18, 3 Apr 2005 (EDT)
  • A hidden $20/whatever currency bill for "emergencies".
  • An *expired* credit or debit card. Got mugged? --RB 04:55, 23 Mar 2005 (EST)
  • Post-Its
    • Post-It shopping list: Write your list on a Post-It and stick it on your wallet. When you get to the store, stick the Post-It to the handle of your shopping cart. When you leave the store, throw the Post-It in the trash. --Michael Leddy
  • Something you want to memorize, written on a card or slip of paper. Memorize a poem, quote, or digits of pi while you're walking around. --NickDouglas 14:06, 24 Mar 2005 (EST)
  • A few small band-aids and a couple of regular size ones. Good for blisters and various other ouches. Also excellent to keep on hand if you happen to have children. --TresWife 22:38, 24 Mar 2005 (EST)
  • Small handwritten card of various numbers: I have a card in my wallet that I keep numbers that I'd really want with me on occassions: IP numbers for DNS servers, the number for my favorite mechanic, size of the watch batteries that I sometimes need, etc. --Rosso 13:18, 3 Apr 2005 (EDT)
  • If you find a public restroom so kind as to offer "ass-gaskets", fold a few up into a 1x1 inch square and keep them in your wallet. This will allow you to be able to "go" anywhere with peace-of-mind. --Chrisrittersdorf 23:03, 7 Apr 2005 (EDT)

  • Carry a few small pictures of yourself well wrapped with plastic film. They come in handy for official transactions or just to share with your loved ones.
  • I wrote down on a piece of paper the precise sequence of numbers I'd need to quickly navigate through my workplace's voice mail system, so that if my train is delayed, I can pull it out and very quickly leave a voice mail message for multiple recepients at my employer to advise them I'll be running late. — WCityMike (T | C) 22:26, 2 Jun 2005 (EDT)
