What Else Is In Your Wallet?
December 17, 2015 9:29am CST
I've been saving my order receipts every time I ate out because I was planning to write about them. There are nine of them now crammed in my 'pitaka' (wallet) collected since August, but the ink has faded on those that were printed on thermal paper, so it's time to throw them away. They remind me of fax messages way back when that we had to photocopy before filing away. Maybe next time I'll scan and save them. Someone I used to work with keeps his spare car key in his wallet. Are there unique, sentimental, funny, impractical, or strange things in your wallet? Or, are there things you never put in your wallet? By the way, some Filipinos also have a coin purse in addition to a wallet for their 'barya' (loose change), such as 10-, 5- and 1-peso coins. Lower denominations are 25, 10 and 5 centavos.

This year my boss invited people to go to our office to do a "dragon dance". This dragon gave us "angpao" red packet for fortune. That is with my purse until now. I will toss it to the bin once the next chinese new year came.

@hereandthere I fold them neatly. in 1/4's. this morning, I and my son went to the city (his birthday) and we had breakfast at Chow King. I paid P500, and there were change of 20's in paper bills and loose coins. they are folded, the least denominations outside, to the highest amount.

I have a coin purse too. I do not like to keep coins in my wallet. The coin purse also holds my keys. I do not have much things in my wallet or purse. The only extra item is the a piece of clean tissue paper. That is for days when I forget to put small packet of tissue papers in my bag.

Hee hee - I don't save my receipts on purpose . . . they just end up scrunched up in there because I just shove it in there with my change! And then it often stays in my wallet for weeks - til it gets stuffed . I guess my wallet is somewhat of a temporary trash bin !
