thin wallet/ card holders?

Filed under: — adrian @ 7:17 pm

I’m looking for recommendations for thin wallets/ credit card holders. My situation has gotten out of control. My wallet’s giant–and I don’t even carry money in it anymore. (Both bills and coins go in my back pocket while my wallet goes in my left pocket, though I could see carrying bills in my wallet.)

I have a lot of cards and miscellaneous things I carry around: two credit cards, two debit cards, driver’s license, cards for three different transportation systems, tickets for the public pools, and business cards. That’s the minimum–I also have movie rental store cards, other people’s business cards and things that I could probably prune out.

My brother (indirectly) suggested All-Ett wallets, though I feel like the area might be too big. Or there’s those combined card holder/ money clips that you see on late-night TV. Or there’s just regular old card holders.

Is there anyone particularly happy with their solution to this problem?

Update This looks like a reasonable way to get rid of some of those club cards. Also These wallets seem to be another thin option.

    I had a nice wallet for a while that my parents-in-law got me while they were in Spain. I’m pretty sure it was made by Pierre Cardin. The cards were oriented vertically, rather than horizontally and it was very thin despite holding quite a lot. It was designed to hold Euros so it was a bit taller than a US wallet. That said, if you’re traveling and need to accommodate taller bills, it’s great. One of the things that made it thin was the materials. The leather was thin and the material separating the cards from each other and from the bills was also thin. Unfortunately, that had an adverse effect on its durability and I ended up having to replace it. This wallet is similar.

    I really like my thin wallet from the Narwhal Company. Their wallets are made from recycled ties. Each one is unique and has a great style. Check them out.

    PS I enjoyed your radio show today, Adrian – one of the dozen fans. I will get to your email shortly.
