“What’s in My Wallet?” – Guest Post on TravelSort

Check out my “What’s in My Wallet?” guest post/graphic on TravelSort! If the graphic is too small, here is a link to a larger version. Hilary was kind enough to also add a written summary of all the cards I included.

I will earn a few dollars if you use my referral link, and appreciate your support of the blog!
