I remember growing up that my Dad had a wallet the size of Texas stuffed in his back pocket. I think every receipt from everything he had ever bought was being stored in there, along with a plethora of credit cards, work ID’s, insurance cards, business cards, and pictures of us kids. His back must have been killing him all those years! And while I never carried around that much stuff with me, I have always had a full-size wallet in my rear right pocket. A few credit cards, a few bucks, my license, my insurance card, a couple of business cards, and some random receipts was all that I carried – until a few weeks ago when I switched to a money clip only. I received this clip a few years back as a wedding gift/favor, and it had been sitting in my dresser drawer ever since. But now that I have switched over to it, I couldn’t be happier. Take a look:
All I carry now is my ID, 1 credit card, 1 debit card, 1 business card, and a few dollars – that’s it. It fits in my left front pocket without much ado (my right front pocket holds my iPhone), both protecting me from pickpockets and from backaches. I love my new setup, as I have realized I just don’t need to carry that much stuff around with me 24/7!
So this leads me to the reason for this post — what do you guys use to carry your money/credit cards/ID’s? A regular wallet? A money clip? A rubber band? What do you use? I am curious as to what the readers use to carry their “stuff” around each day. Let me know!
