NEVER KEEP THESE ITEMS IN YOUR WALLET...

That overstuffed wallet of yours can’t be comfortable to sit on. It’s probably even too clunky to lug around in a purse, too.

And with every new bank slip that bulges from the seams, your personal information is getting less and less safe. With just your name and Social Security number, identity thieves can open new credit accounts and make costly purchases in your name. If they can get their hands on (and doctor) a government-issued photo ID, they can do even more damage, such as opening new bank accounts. These days, con artists are even profiting from tax-return fraud and health-care fraud, all with stolen IDs.

1. YOUR SOCIAL SECURITY CARD
2.  PASSWORD CHEAT SHEET
3. SPARE KEYS
4. CHECKS
5. PASSPORT
6. MULTIPLE CREDIT CARDS
7. BIRTH CERTIFICATES
8. A STACK OF RECEIPTS
