#116 plastic in my life

116/365 plastic in my life, originally uploaded by rosipaw.

Getting ready to travel abroad tomorrow, I emptied my purse of all the unnecessary cards (concerned about them being stolen again, as happenend once before!) While doing that, I remembered today’s Daily Shoot challenge:

Plastic is everywhere. Make a photograph that illustrates a use of plastic in your life today.

It’s amazing how many cards you acquire from different places. Money has been plastic for me for ages. It’s sometimes a bit embarrassing when somebody rings our bell with a good fund-raising cause, and I’ve got to turn them down because I only carry ‘plastic money’ with me.

The blurriness of the picture is a good reminder of how overspending, for example, is much easier, using a plastic card than with cash – at least for me. It may be because the plastic card doesn’t seem to be worth that much.

    Have fun, you jet-setter! If you don’t have coins, how do you pay for the parking meters?

    Thank you Tania! Good question – I only choose underground parking halls where you can pay with your VISA card! It is also easier and more spacious to park there – I’m useless at parking at tight spaces.

    Plastic does make spending easier – that’s what the companies want. But it is so convenient. I envy your ability to carry no cash – I’m still straddling the plastic/paper divide.
