Tips & Tricks Tuesday: Keeping your wallet small and tidy

Tuesday, July 28, 2009 by Emily Boyd

Got a wallet so full of random items that it barely fits in your pocket? This week's tip, shared by RTM user chris089, is for you.

Bob keeps his wallet tidy

Do you know the feeling when you search for something in your wallet and you realize that for the last two months your collected a whole bunch of totally useless crap (well, some of it might have been useful back then, but just isn't anymore, e.g. parking tickets…) and thus can't find it? Happens to me all the time.

I now use a RTM task that reminds me to throw away that stuff every 2 weeks. It also has a time estimate of "5 minutes" so it will show up on a smart list that shows me tasks that I can do in less than 15 minutes which I check for todo items when I have a little bit of spare time where it's just not productive to start any "real" work.

Oh, and while you're at it, you can take pictures and claim the crap in your wallet to be "art": http://www.allthecrapinmywallet.co.uk/ ;)
