What would my wallet say about me? I have a separate key ring with all those little plastic tags from the grocery stores and Best Buy and CVS to get special "savings". Would they think I spend all my time looking for ways to spend money? Likewise the receipts that get stuffed in there. My pocket calendar with birthdays, appointments, vacation days, hieroglyphic notes scratched everywhere....would they think I'm very organized....or dis-organized?
I'm somewhat impressed at the collection from Mr. Marks. It says so much more about him than just being someone who kept papers......over one hundred ten years ago.
