so I put the money in my pants, then I changed pants so I had no $ when I got to the club. Have you ever done something like that? When was the last time you left your money home or some place when you thought you had it with you?

Hi Writers Forgetting money while going out - Well, this hasnt happened with me but yes, I was out without any money many a times. Normally, I have a fixed way to do things when I go out - I have my wallet, my wrist watch and a pen - together right at the door. And whenever I go out, I do take these with me. But yes, there was one incident, when we(a group of 5 friends) had purchased movie tickets via Internet booking facility and they did get delivered in the morning. I was cleaning the house and somehow forgot to put it in the wallet. Assuming that I had it in the wallet, I reached the theater and it wasnt until the entrance opened that we realized, we were without any tickets... Missed out that show and it was quite an embarrassment but as it was between friends, we did have a great laugh at the end of the day

If I put something in my husband's hat, it usually gets in his wallet and makees it out the door, but not always. He has a similar system. Wallet in his hat near his favorite chair before the door. Sorry about the tickets. Good thing you have understanding friends. Thanks for writing and making me feel less dumb. I put the money in my carving toolbox, so next time when I grab my tools, it will be with me. TAke care.

sorry friend but I'm a little bit more organized when it comes to money, all my paper bills are arranged same face up in my wallet and the bigger denomination bills are separated from the smaller ones, guess it's a trait I got from my father when I worked for he's store when I was a teenager. I also see to it that all the coins, keys, pocket Swiss knife etc.. are transferred to my new pair of pants and all unneeded receipts are discarded. Carving club? Sounds interesting, last time I carved something was a long time ago, a dug out piece a block of wood

I was more organized when I worked. But he just handed me money as I was getting ready to go out. Usually all my money goes in my pocketbook, but I couldn't find that either.

Oh yes..I have done it before. I have had all my bills..when I did the cash thing...ready to go..perfectly organized..walked right out the door without anything but my purse and got all the way out and about before I realized that all my organized payments were still at home neatly on the coffee table

That, I can see. Frustrating, isn't it? Esp. when you drive somewhere to pay your bills. I've organized coupons and left them home like that. I'll try not to do the same thing with bills. They go out to the car when I'm warming it up, works well in winter. Not as well in summer because I don't need to warm the car up. Thanks and take care.

Not so much money as lists or coupons I planned on using. Today in fact I was going to pick up lunch.....got to the drive up and the coupon was missing....because is was still laying on the kitchen table!

Coupons I've done that with many times. Very frustrating. You take the time to cut them out, organize them, and they're home.

Thats pretty funny but then you feel stupid. Well i went shopping once and before i go to the store i went ang got gas i used my debit card to get gas and then just put it in the cup holder in the car so then i got to the store to go shopping and was done shopping and looked for my debit card and couldnt find it so then i had to go back out to my car and get the card then go all the way back in the store to pay for my items. I felt so stupid but relived at the same time because i found my card. LOL . At least were not the only ones doing this.

Yes, I have 7 responses. I would go crazy if a credit or debit card was no where and I went to use it. Glad you found yours. Thanks and take care.
