Lost Wallet

What if you lost your wallet or purse?

If you were to lose your wallet or purse tomorrow, how long would it take you to replace everything in it and could you?  Can you remember everything that is in your wallet or purse including credit cards, IDs, health insurance cards, or those membership, rewards, or frequent traveler cards that you have added over the years and not bothered to write down? If you are traveling and a credit card is lost or stolen how are you able to report it lost and do you have the phone number on the back of the credit card handy, even when you don’t have the credit card? While everyone can agree this would be a big loss and painful to recover from, it happens more than you think. Did you know that in a five year period around 10 percent of people will have lost their wallet?  The odds are much higher than you think, so why not be prepared for the possibility now.  Take the challenge this week that I like to call the “Backup your wallet challenge”. Don’t procrastinate and take the 20 minutes or less it takes with LifeHound to quickly capture the information and take pictures using your phone’s camera of all of the cards and information in your wallet/purse. LifeHound can also help you set reminders when cards or memberships are going to expire, so you are not left in an unfortunate situation. Life is hard enough, so don’t make it any harder on yourself and always have the information at your fingertips, even when you don’t have your wallet with you.
