My attempt to understand and be understood.


No Wallet

Another way I have tried to simplify my life, is in the items I carry. I have banished myself (about 2 months ago) from carrying my messenger bag, and a fully loaded frequent shopper and credit card filled wallet. Now I try to carry just the bare basics:

  • Drivers License
  • A credit card (emphasis on 'a'; instead of 3-4 credit cards)
  • Cash
    (All held together by a money clip)
  • My Dell Axim PDA (holds all my tasks, contacts, calendars and lists)
  • Cell Phone
  • Keys and a USB drive
After not carrying a wallet, I have found that I miss it. It usually caused bigger messes and paranoia about more easily lost credit cards.
