Hopefully you will never need this, but just in case ...

A few years ago I took everything out of my wallet, photocopied front and back, cut the images out and taped them together to make paper copies of all of my important cards. I put them in an envelope, put that in our lock box and forgot all about it.

Until, a few weeks ago when my wallet was stolen.

I was sad to lose my Louis Vuitton wallet and about $400 in cash. I was upset over the loss of photos of my children, but I think I may have duplicates somewhere. But the real trauma was the loss of my cards. Imagine, no drivers license, no green card, no ATM card, no credit card, no insurance card and the list goes on.

We keep everything we need to run our lives in our wallets don't we?

So, just in case this ever happens to you, please make copies of your cards. I know that it saved me a lot of time to have all the relevant numbers at my fingertips.

And thanks to the best husband in the world who bought me this....


  1. I'm sorry to hear about your wallet! It is horrible that people out in the world can be so rude and selfish to steal others things.

  2. Oh no! Thank goodness you had all of that information on hand. I have had my wallet stolen (once on vacation) and it was far from easy to replace everything. What a fabulous husband to buy you a new wallet. :)

  3. Oh no, what an awful loss of personal value. Thanks for the reminder that I need to copy a few new additional items in my wallet. How sweet of your husband to gift you a new one,
