    3 visa cards
    an atm card
    driver's license
    5 gas cards (better safe than sorry)
    a road service card
    a Home Depot Gift Card with $6.44 left

    TragicWhiteKnight: Am I the only one with two wallets? A thin trouser-pocket one for cards & notes, and a bulkier one for coins, with keys attached (so I never lose them). And a third decoy one I occasionally take, full of coppers that looks thicker than the real one, in case of mugging [gasp, my secret scheme has been revealed!]

    As such, I've not too much of interest left in my wallet. Besides ID/credit cards, I have:

    * Year-old stub from a screening of 'Night of the Hunter'.
    * An asshole's business card, with sarcastic comments scribbled on it.
    * A scrap of paper with palindromes on it.
    * My 'Jim Garrahy Fudge Kitchen' loyalty card (ironically only used once).
    * 2-3 'Forfeits' cards I stole from a party.

    Other than that, I keep my wallet tidier than anything else (if the question were what's in my bag, on my table or over the floor, it'd be a much longer list).

    gigantikok: I keep a key in my wallet, too!  I didn't think it was that strange.  Let's see... aside from the usual drivers license and credit card stuff, I've got:

    -Various assorted phone numbers on scrap sheets of paper

    -Half of a little, metal "Spawn" trinket I found on the ground 4 years ago.

    -The imprint of a photo (on the clear plastic part) that got washed one to many times in my wallet.

    -Vouchers for over 4000 tickets at a place called "Planet Play".

    -Hot Topic discount card.  (Even though that store kinda sucks)

    -A key card I stole from a hotel.

    ...and other various assorted cards I don't really feel like talking about.

    throb919: TWK--Yeah, I have more than one, too: the daily wallet (contents already listed) and a going clubbing wallet (ID + ATM + $). I could say it's about security or not wanting to take this-or-that "out" with me (yeah, that's it!) but it probably comes down to: not wanting to spoil the lines of my fine ass! :D

    Maximillian: My wallet is extremely boring I have decided. I am Mr Organized so there is usually nothing extra in there at all, but here goes:

    Various paper currency
    My DL
    Old student ID from UVa (taking that out now)
    Visa Card (I have never found more than one CC necessary)
    Food Lion MVP Card
    Harris-Teeter VIC card
    Sam's Club card
    Social Security card
    Laminated card with important names and numbers
    Laminated card explaining My speech problem

    And the piece de resistance:
    1 ticket courtesy of the Va State Police for doing 125 in a 65, reckless driving and illegal equipment (Nitrous Oxide) Totally worth every penny it ended up costing Me for the thrill of going from 65 to 125 in about 2 seconds  :D

    Harris Teeter is the upscale version of Piggly Wiggly which is the Redneck's source for Redman and Pabst Blue Ribbon.
