A man goes into his son's room to wish him goodnight. His son is having a nightmare; the man wakes him and asks his son if he is okay. The son replies he is scared because he dreamed that Aunt Lisa had died. The father assures the son that Aunt Lisa is fine and sends him to bed. The next day, Aunt Lisa dies. One week later, the man again goes into his son's room to wish him goodnight. His son is having another nightmare; the man again wakes his son. The son this time says that he had dreamed that his grandfather had died. The father assures the son that his grandfather is fine and sends him to bed. The next day, the grandfather dies. One week later, the man again goes into his son's room to wish him goodnight. His son is having another nightmare; the man again wakes his son. The son this time says that he had dreamed that dad had died. The father assures the son that he is okay and sends the boy to bed. The man goes to bed but cannot sleep because he is so terrified. The next day, the man is scared for his life -- he is sure he's going to die. After dressing he drives very cautiously to work. He doesn't eat lunch because he is scared of choking. He avoids everyone because he's sure he will somehow be killed. He jumps at every noise and hides for most of the day under his desk. Upon walking in his front door at the end of the day, he see his wife. "Good God, Dear," he proclaims, "I've just had the worst day of my entire life!" She responds, "You think your day was bad, the UPS man dropped dead on the doorstep this morning."

Because our wallets go everywhere we go, they get weighed down with all sorts of unhelpful junk, like ticket stubs, receipts, discount cards, etc. But de-toxing your wallet is not as simple as turning it upside down and shaking everything out. Here's a plan for reducing the clutter in your wallet:
Out With Waste-of-Space Cards -- Time to say "see-ya" to your shopping cards. Sure they might offer you discounts, but they also encourage you to keep spending. Keep one or two that you frequently use. Only keep cards that are current and used regularly.
No More Useless Paper -- Go through your wallet and take out all the old receipts and ticket stubs. Do the same with little bits of paper with telephone numbers and names.
Keep Photos to a Minimum -- Sure, its great to have a photo of your loved ones, but do your wallet a favor and move those pics to your smartphone.
Farewell Fantastic Plastic -- Now comes the crunch. Time to remove any excess plastic ... that means credit cards. If you have lots of cards, close them down and consolidate your debts on a lower-interest rate card.
Stash Your Cash Neatly -- A good way to know exactly how much cash you have on you is to get into the habit of putting your notes in their proper compartments. By organizing, you not only have an idea of how much you have, but may reduce your trips to the ATM.
Spend Your Shrapnel First -- No one likes to break a note, so make it your mission to use up all your coins first. This way you won't be so tempted to splurge on impulse buys. Plus getting rid of the heavy silver will do a lot to de-clutter your wallet.
