Who do you identify with more? The thousands of Americans who pat their pockets rhythmically before leaving the house (wallet, keys, whatever else) or the thousands who make it all the way to their car or final destination before they notice that their wallet is missing?

If it’s the latter, there’s probably no worse feeling to ruin your day. Did you forget it at home? Did you drop it somewhere? Is it gone forever?

Try as you might, you can’t find it. Panic sets in and you begin going through a laundry list of items you’ve now lost. How many times have you promised yourself you’d stop carrying something in your wallet? How many times have you failed to pull it out and set it aside with the rest of your sensitive documents- preferably in a safe inside your home?

The issue is that most of the things that are in our wallets could lead to a huge loss of money at best and identity theft at worst. Bogus loan applications and attempts to open fraudulent accounts will likely follow. Obviously, in order to avoid any of these issues, it’s best to leave some of your most sensitive items back home.

Without further ado, here are 6 things you should never ever carry around in your wallet- unless you like to live dangerously, that is!

  1. I am a novice at this traveling thing. I hear a lot about the Cloud. Would you explain what it is and how do I use it? Furthermore, is the cloud the only use for traveling? I am thinking of taking a vacation with my husband come spring. Please help me figure out what the cloud is and what keeps others from accessing it. I would like to be able to have it figured out before I go on vacation. Please help. Cheers Sarah

  2. My sister di that. She stored everything on cloud, then when we were away on vacay, she tried to access her cloud. It wanted to charge her for everything she was downloading. Being charged for her own stuff, thaks crazy. that was a while ago so I don’t know if the cloud is diferent now and that ws when it first came out.
