Odd subject line, eh? I had a dream a few nights ago that I lost my purse and filled with anxiety in the dream when I realized everything that was in it.... so when I got up the next morning I did a little clean-out of my purse. It was an eye opener. First of all, the same goes for guys with wallets. :nod: I was carrying a couple of credit cards that we never use but haven't closed the account. One was a platinum card with a very high spending limit that would have had some thief having a field day. Why carry it in my purse if I never use it? Why carry insurance cards that are expired but still contain a SSN? Why carry a SSN card if you've never EVER had to show it anywhere? I realized that if I HAD been robbed, it would have been a terrible headache to call around reporting it to a lot more places than I would have needed to call otherwise. Oh, I even had an extra checkbook to another account in my purse! Different bank, different account... and right there for a thief to start writing checks. Sheesh, contacting the ONE bank would be bad enough if my main checkbook was stolen, why offer a robber a second bank account?
