So what should your wallet contain? What are the essentials in any man’s wallet? Should the picture of your favorite Anime character even be in there?

We’ve compiled a list of the items that should be present in any man’s wallet. It’s not the definitive list but it is as simple as simple comes. Note that depending on your disposition and location, the list may sound weird or foreign to you. Nevertheless, here’s our list of the top items that should be present in your wallet.

1. Cash

We’re aware that a significant portion of 21st-century transactions are completed via credit or debit card, but it is prudent to withhold cash as you never know when dire financial straits might arise. We know you’re Elite, but even you one day might go on a lavish spree and max out all your cards.

Being stuck in this scenario with no cash is the last position you want to be in. You might also have to handle a crazy girlfriend who takes steps to cancel all of your cards after you’ve angered her. Regardless of the specific case at hand, you will always have additional security with emergency cash in your possession.

Another reason why cash is important is that it leaves no trails. If you ever need to get a hotel room for yourself and your escort or even buy some gifts for your mistress, you can rest assured that your beloved one will never discover your discrepancies.

2. Credit Card

Even if we mentioned that you should never bring too much cash, this does not mean you have to leave the house without money on you. At least bring your plastic money with you. A credit card is perfect because it is small, lightweight, and pretty handy for paying for stuff that costs more than $100. If you have more than 1 credit cards, carrying two around will be more than enough. For people who are serious with their finances, bringing a debit and credit card around is perfect for you to budget your money on stuff you buy.

3. ID

It is imperative that you carry your state-issued driver’s license or state ID card at all times. It is also advisable to carry any profession-related identification with you on your wallet. Don’t go on carrying around your old college ID or that ID from your membership with the town’s paper puppet lover’s club.

4. Business cards

This is not a requirement but you never know when opportunity knocks so carrying around 3-4 pcs of cards with your name, address, contact number, and line of business/service can be a lifesaver. They are easy to make and can really be of great help especially when you are out and about meeting new people.

5. Contact/Health Information

While a part of this is already covered by your business card or ID, having your health information with you at all times can be a matter of life and death. This is especially true for people who suffer from certain health conditions where a specific medicine or procedure should be given or done to save a person’s life. Your contact information should always be visible in your wallet in case it gets lost and somebody decides to return it to you. Might not happen 100% of the time but if ever it does, it will be a lot easier for the good Samaritan.

6. Condom

While this may seem to be a fairly obvious staple, you’d be surprised at how many men have forgotten to bring a condom out. Most men in committed relationships never carry condoms because of the fear of raising red flags in the minds of their girlfriends. However, it is always important to keep one close by in case of unforeseen sexual encounters.

It’s bad enough to cheat, but she’ll REALLY kill you if you transmit an STD as well. Who knows, your drunken charm might manage to net you a young coed who has no other desire than to pleasure you to the fullest extent of her abilities. You surely wouldn’t want to pass on that… Would you?

7. Something to write with

We know it’s generally preferred to store everything via smartphone, but these devices DO malfunction from on occasion, you know. Envision a scenario in which your phone has just died and you have met the girl of your dreams. If you just depend on her to text you when you give her your number it might just never happen. To prevent this tragic scenario, keep a small wallet pen just in case you need to jot something down.

If your girlfriend goes through your cell phone each day, you might want to just write numbers down before you store them after returning home from a night out. Be under the radar. (Note: This could--and almost certainly will—backfire since you are leaving a paper trail of cheating just waiting to be discovered by your girlfriend. Preferably, curb your desires.)

8. Spare key

This one is a little tricky, as if you lose your wallet with your house keys someone could easily use your ID to find your home and have a mini shopping spree with all of your personal possessions. Nonetheless, it’s usually a good idea to at least keep a spare car key in your wallet in the event that you accidentally lock your keys inside your vehicle.

We’ve all endured this annoying tragedy, and nothing would be worse than attempting to leave with a beautiful girl and noticing that you’re missing your keys. Buzzkill and bang kill for sure! $ads={2}
