I’ve had the same wallet for a decade. It’s pretty much indestructible.
Recently I stumbled upon a duct tape wallet that caught my eye.
These duct tape wallets are handmade in Methow Valley Washington by Brian Drye. I like these wallets because they’re handmade, thin, simple and unique. And for vegan-minded folks, they’re not made from leather. If you have your own design in mind, you can send it to Brian and he’ll let you know if it’s doable. Don’t want a design? You can order a basic brown duct tape wallet. Here’s a blue one:
Like to keep things simple? It doesn’t get any simpler than this wallet.
This simple money-band lets you carry cash and cards, bundled together in your front pocket. If paying $5 for a strong perfectly sized rubber band seems outrageous, start looking for your own rubber band. My friend uses a regular ol’ rubber band that she wraps around her credit cards a couple times. It does the trick and costs nothing.
Any of these wallets should perform admirably and won’t bust your budget. To use these wallets, you will need to whittle down the cards you carry to the bare essentials.
Right now I carry 7 cards:
- Driver’s license
- Gym membership
- My insurance card
- Starbucks discount card (could leave in my car)
- My kid’s insurance card
Try it yourself. Whittle down the number of cards you carry. How low can you go?
