    Far too many. One of the down sides to being a money saver is having lots of cards to carry. Firstly, the usual:

    Driving licence
    Debit card (for cash withdrawals)
    Credit card (for 0% purchases)
    Credit card (for fee-free foreign transactions)


    Then reloadable cards that provide discounts for certain stores:

    Tesco
    B&Q
    Wickes
    Sainsburys
    EasySaver


    Then reward cards for certain stores:

    Tesco clubcard
    Shell drivers club
    Nectar
    B&Q club
    Pets at Home VIP
    Barbershop stamp card


    Finally, miscellaneous:

    Organ donor card
    RAC
    Private healthcare membership
    Gym membership

    Stopped carrying one. Have my debit card and credit cards saved on Google Pay for daily use.

    Will very occasionally pick up my actual wallet if I know I am going to need coins to pay for parking or something or think I am going to a stone age store which doesn't take contactless.

    I loathe cash

    I'm the opposite, I love cash, and is what i'll use from choice for any purchase under £100.

    So in my purse is the following:

    £100 in cash.

    2 bank cards - A Lloyds debit card and a Nationwide credit card.

    My own personal business cards x 4.

    A garden centre rewards card.

    A Tesco rewards card.

    My driving license...… and that's it !

    Recalled direct debit
    I called the bank this morning and they have recalled a direct debit for me. They said this will be in my account by 8.30am tomorrow. They couldnít advise me if it would be any sooner. Does anyone know if this could be back in my account today or is it the next working day. Sorry if I am posting on the wrong post but new here and unsure where to post
