Living a lighter life – a wallet’s short story

I feel lighter now πŸ™‚

My owner is doing a decent job most of the time, only carrying around the most important credit cards, membership card, receipts and things. But I can’t help feeling stuffed some of the time.

I have not been alone. I have a couple of family members still hanging around in this house. They are no longer in daily use and feel somewhat lonely, stuffed away in a dark drawer. Their only job these days have been holding on to a lot of cards that are rarely used, or not used at all. And I know for a fact that my oldest family member is ready to move on to the next realm, he’s done his work and is tired.

Today is a great day πŸ™‚ Our owner decided to bring us all out on the table. She emptied us all out, and while she sorted out all the stuff we were holding, we got to hang out with each other and catch up for a while πŸ™‚

She did really good at getting rid of the unused credit cards, no longer valid membership cards, business cards and so on.

As she was done, she slowly started to put the leftover cards back into our protective fold. This time around though, she left plenty of space for us to breath πŸ˜‰

And guess what, she let my oldest family member retire.Β He is now going into the recycle pile so he can move on…

and he’s bringing a bunch of cards with him πŸ™‚

  1. Cute post! I love earning points in rewards programs but hate carrying around the cards…a lot of places here will just look you up by phone number if you don’t have the card, so that’s what I do! πŸ™‚


    1. We’re not quite so into membership cards here in Norway, but we are working on it πŸ˜‰ wherever they will do phone numbers I do that. Or just do memberships at all πŸ˜‰
