Inside My Wallet

This is the wallet I am currently using. It is a Gucci replica, a gift from my sister-in-law last Christmas. I asked for a red medium sized wallet because according to Feng Shui  red wallet and accessories will bring me luck since I was born in the year of the fire pig. Red symbolizes fire and good luck.  But my SIL can’t see a red one so she gave me this.

When I took its picture, the money inside is just P551.00. May be because I am not using a red wallet that is  why money is not staying long in it, ehehe. Other things inside my wallet are my two ATM cards, my Social Security System ID and family picture. I  don’t have any credit card because I am an impulsive shopper so a big NO for credit cards.
Have you ever thought how the use of wallet came about? Wallets, as a word, have been used by ancient people since the first century AD. It refers to a knapsack or a bag for carrying articles. In Ancient Greece, the wallet was used by a poor man to stock his provisions. As time went by and the Renaissance period came about, metals or coins were now being used as a mode of exchange. And from here, the wallet  has evolved from a pack of provisions to packs that could contain coins or sometimes, statements of accounts. (source)
