I’ve been meaning to write this blog entry for a while now, but I never got to it. Since I will be going on an overseas trip, I decided that this is a good time. Most of us carry a wallet or a purse to our outings. We store important things such as credit cards, cash, and membership cards in our wallets or purses. I have never lost my wallet before, but if I did, I would be quite worried. To protect myself, I thought that I would create a wallet inventory with a list of my wallet’s contents and their respective phone numbers to call in the unfortunate event that they are lost or stolen. I would encourage everyone else to do the same. Include other cards as well, so you know what you have lost even if it doesn’t have a phone number. Print it out and put it somewhere secure or upload it to Google Docs. If traveling, ask someone else carry it for you. Don’t put it in your wallet!
