Spring Cleaning Your Wallet

Stuffed Wallet

Wallet

There are many mysteries in life that are left unanswered. Like how the universe came to be? Is there life on other planets? Is there heaven or hell? But the greatest paradox in life is the stuff inside a man’s wallet.

Admit it, you have stuff inside your wallet that makes you say, “how did that get in there!?” There are receipts of items you don’t remember buying. There are calling cards of people you don’t remember meeting. Some of you might even find a condom that you’re not planning on actually using.

Stuffed Wallet

There are items that SHOULD always be inside men’s wallet. Aside from ready cash, here are some important items that every guy should have:

Government Issued ID with pertinent information

These always come in handy. Pertinent information includes your birth date, home address, blood type, and a contact number of a person in case of emergency. You are living in a civilized society and as much as you want to roam around incognito, you can’t just do that anymore. You don’t want to be tagged as John Doe when authorities find your dead body in a trash bin (of course this is just worst case scenario).

3 pieces of your calling card

Unless you’re a politician, three calling cards are enough. Business opportunities may pop-up anytime, anywhere. Potential clients and business partner are always out there. Always be ready to flip a calling card whenever possible.

Plastic money

It is inevitable that you will run out of cash. However, you must consider swiping these as your last resort. If you have a habit of putting your wallet at your pant’s back pocket, don’t stuff credit cards in there. The heat in your buttocks while sitting down may disintegrate the magnetic strip containing the account information.

 Credit Cards

You should also take note of these items that DO NOT BELONG inside your wallet:

Condoms

Putting condoms inside your wallet is more of a show than real action. You’re not being ready when you store it there, you’re being careless. Condoms deteriorate inside a wallet. Stuff it somewhere else.

Receipts

We are living in the smart phone age. Utilize it. Snap a picture of an important receipt or bill. You may dispose the paper if you want, but if it does have sentimental value, put it in a box along with your other hoardings.

Cluttered Receipts

Coins

Wallets are for bills, not loose change. Coins can damage the structure of your wallet. Same is true with keys and other metals.

Your wallet ain’t Gringotts Harry!

Back in the old days, a fat wallet means that a man is rich. Nowadays, a fat wallet connotes a mild hoarding problem. A bad habit is difficult to break. You may stuff useless things inside your wallet subconsciously. If you can’t fold your bi-fold wallet, then we have bad news for you! Relieve your wallet from all the burden and if wallets can talk, it will definitely thank you.

How to Look Good Naked in 30 Minutes

Your overall well-being is important to us. Being always on the move can take a toll on your personal life. Yes, you may earn more income by drowning yourself with work but it can negatively affect your health and physique.

Going to the gym is the best way to keep your muscles in great shape. But as Sweet Brown would probably say, “Ain’t nobody got time for that!” We understand that time is important to the modern man. Two to three hours at the gym can be a big burden on your work schedule. Sometimes, you just can’t fit it in your busy itinerary no matter how much you want it.

Fret not! A good 30-minute workout a day is enough to get in shape! You can slip these exercises in the morning before you take a shower. These exercises are convenient anywhere because you will not need any additional weights. Here’s how:

Push Ups

Never underestimate the good ‘ol push-up. The muscles worked include the abs, the deltoid, the pecs, and the triceps. It’s a classic workout but still very effective. Try committing slowly to 50 push-ups a day, working your way up to a hundred.

Glute Bridge

Here’s something for the glutes. Lie on your back with your knees bent. Raise your hips off the ground while contracting your abs and glutes. Avoid arching your back. Slowly lower yourself to the ground. Do 12 to 15 reps.

Burpee

Do the ‘burpee’. Squat and place your hands on the floor, then spring your feet into a push-up position. Drop to the floor, and then push back up to jump vertically (as high as possible). Do 3 sets for 5 reps with 45 second recovery.

Body Lunges

Stand on your feet, shoulder-width apart. Take a big step forward and lunge down without your knee going over your toe. Go back up and repeat. You can pack in some weights if that’s a bit too easy for you. It affects your quads, hamstrings and glutes.

Bicycle Crunches

There are a lot of 5-minute ab workouts out there all over the web. Check out this 5 minute abs workout by sixpackshortcuts:

Working out is not just for vanity. It’s for your overall well-being. It makes everything you wear look good on you. Heck, it even makes you look great naked. Everybody knows that you’re working your arse off. We know that you are working for your future. But remember that that future you are saving up for would not be as great on a hospital bed. Invest in your body. Work out and be strong.
