    In my wallet:

    A&L VISA Debit
    Citibank VISA Debit
    Halifax Classic VISA Credit
    Driving Licence for ID purposes
    5 note

    I have a whole load of other cards that I don't use so don't keep in wallet - less hassle if my wallet is ever lost/stolen.

    I keep any coinage upto a few pounds in my jacket pocket.

    Cant beleive you keep so much in your wallets, god help you if you ever lost them.

    I keep bare essentials only.
    I work in a NatWest branch, any information I provide should be taken as general. See you local branch for advice, but any questions feel free to ask me.

    Since when has the world of computer software design been about what people want? This is a simple question of evolution. The day is quickly coming when every knee will bow down to a silicon fist, and you will all beg your binary gods for mercy.

    I have:

    Natwest Debit Card
    Bite Card
    Zavvi Gift Card
    Waterstones Card
    Staples Reward Card
    Boots Advantage Card
    WH Smith Card

    I wish I didn't have so many, I wouldn't have to if so many stores didn't make you have their own cards just to get student discount. I thought my NUS/Uni ID card would be enough but they all want their own card as well as that.
