Poll: The money in your wallet (47 votes)

Bills in numerical order 11%
Bills in numerical order and facing same direction 49%
Random placement 23%
A haphazard wad 6%
Money clip, fool 11%

If you were to open up your wallet right now, what would we see?

I'm pretty stubborn about keeping my bills in order and facing the same way. I lose track of how much I have in my wallet otherwise, plus it saves fumbling for a specific bill a the register.

It also bothers me if the bills aren't facing the same way and in order.

If theres more than three or so of em in there sleepin, ill put em in order, but i dont care if theyre bent or rightside up or down.

Random placement. Guess counting would give some order naturally

#4 Posted by vl4d_l3nin (768 posts) -

I'm from one of those fabulous countries that have brightly coloured money, different for each value, so the order doesn't matter much.

I also hardly ever carry cash.

I have em in w/e order.

I generally don't have more than $40 bucks in my wallet - mostly used debt/credit.

Never gave it much thought, but they are in numerical order and facing the same way.

#7 Posted by Barbariser (6703 posts) -

I usually just dump them in without thought or care, so its option 4.

If you opened up my wallet right now, you'd see a barren leather wasteland of dust and disappointment.

When I do have money in there, though, it;s placed randomly. I don't have time to rearrange my dollars like I do my books.

What is this "money" you speak of? My wallet has been empty for... going on 6 months now.

When I do actually have some cash, I have divider in my wallet's money pocket. I keep ones and fives in one of them, and the bigger denominations in the other.

I never have that much money in my wallet, right now I have a five and a single. I usually keep the same sort of bills together, but other than that it's pretty haphazard, doesn't really matter if I lose track of how much i have in there.

#11 Edited by konvikt_17 (22100 posts) -

i keep it in order.

i have ones first, then fives, then tens then twenties, etc.

all facing the same direction.

i find it easier to keep track of my money that way(and it just seems logical), than just randomly stuffing it in there.

also when it comes to change, i only keep dimes and quarters. nickels and pennies, i give to the "take a penny, leave a penny" or to some other fund the store has.

dont like having penny's and nickels.

no money in pocket.

#13 Posted by Shottayouth13- (6690 posts) -

Yep, I'm pretty anal if my money isn't in numerical order facing the same direction.

#14 Posted by moix123 (67 posts) -

never gave much attention to it.

#15 Posted by Shmiity (4964 posts) -

I currently have zero cash in my wallet. I never have cash. Usually just cards.

#16 Posted by Celldrax (14532 posts) -

I rarely ever have notes in my wallet.

I do have a place for them, but they'll just go in whichever way if I do need them.

#17 Posted by deeliman (2247 posts) -

I just randomly toss them in there, but most of my money is on my bank account anyways.

#18 Posted by ad1x2 (5403 posts) -

I will arrange it in order of value, but I rarely have more than $20 on me at a time unless I know I will need cash for some reason. I was robbed at gunpoint ten years ago and lost a little over $50. I can see somebody using cash if they want to buy something they don't want to appear on their credit card statement for whatever reason. Also, one of the dry cleaning places I use gives you a 20% discount for paying in cash, so I'll use cash for them.

no cash in my wallet, just id and credit/debit cards. if/when i carry cash it's in a different pocket than my wallet

#20 Posted by GazaAli (22491 posts) -

Can't say I have any particular arrangement for keeping money in my wallet, considering that I'm as broke as it gets.

#22 Posted by Diablo-B (4019 posts) -

I usually use cards but when I do keep cash I place it in any order in my money clip

#23 Edited by lostrib (31568 posts) -

Well, I only have a five dollar bill. So technically it is in order, and randomly placed

#24 Posted by TheHighWind (3764 posts) -

It goes:

ones

fives

tens

twenties

magnum condom

#25 Posted by iowastate (7873 posts) -

Who uses cash anymore?

debit card or credit card is all anyplace wants these days.

this is making it harder on small cash only vendors on the street.

I only have a bit of cash if I want to buy some street food from a vendor or get an ice cream from a truck in the summer

#26 Edited by PernicioEnigma (5271 posts) -

The only time I have cash in my wallet is when I withdraw $20 to top-up my bus card. All my money is in the bank.

As far as organisation goes - I keep my cash and my receipts separate, but I don't organize the cash in any particular order, that just seems like a waste of time.

#27 Posted by Iszdope (9403 posts) -

I don't own a wallet.

Or a money clip, fool.

#28 Posted by 4myAmuzumament (1743 posts) -

in order, sometimes I'll organize them facing the same direction too. If I owe someone money I'll fold it in half behind my cash.

#29 Edited by touchscreenpad (220 posts) -

I always place them in numerical order and facing the same way...I have an OC about that. >_<

#30 Edited by ferrari2001 (16677 posts) -

Sometimes I just put it in randomly although I try to keep it in numerical order at least.

#31 Edited by picklesurprise (172 posts) -

What money?

#32 Posted by mccoyca112 (5431 posts) -

A folded 2 dollar bill, debit card, and a couple credit cards inside of a cigarette case.

#33 Edited by ShepardCommandr (2127 posts) -

I don't need a wallet.

I keep all my money in rolls and on my pockets.

#34 Posted by TAMKFan (32702 posts) -

It's in a random order right now. Sometimes I place them in order from least to most valuable though and facing the same direction.

#35 Edited by k2theswiss (16598 posts) -

i throw it in.

I don't spend cash at places as it's stupid to do so. SO cash can stack up pretty high before i use it and only way i use it is if i owe someone.

#36 Edited by musicalmac (22662 posts) -

I don't carry cash.

#37 Posted by Ugalde- (3647 posts) -

Money Clip for me.

#38 Posted by Horgen (109953 posts) -

Same here... Still I only use debit/credit card though.
