A true adventurer is a fly-by-the-seat-of-his-pants kinda guy (or gal). We can travel lightly at a moment’s notice. We know how to send a text without service. We know how to find our way sans Internet. We know how to charge our phones just by walking. And hopefully soon we’ll know how to live wallet-free.
WIRED staff writer Christina Bonnington lived wallet-free for one month. No ID, no cash. Only stored credit card information online and a few apps and websites that make life a lot easier. Here are a few tips from her adventure:
Instacart (San Francisco only) delivers groceries for a $4 fee.
The LevelUp app allows you to pay with your phone in restaurants and coffee shops that offer the service.
Google Wallet is accepted by large retailers like Macy’s, the Container Store, and Office Max.
PayPal is great for paying friends and paying rent.
