Many years ago, I discovered the convenience of carrying a wallet in my pocket instead of a purse. I've always hated the "bulge" created by a wallet, but fashion can't always be the priority in life for most of us.
In my teen and young adult years, I always carried a purse. During those years, it never really occurred to me that there was an alternative. Handbags were not only a normal accessory for females, they were often a fashion statement. I enjoyed selecting and changing my purse to match my shoes. Without really meaning to, I had quite a collection of purses in my closet. However, motherhood changed all of that for me and the "practical" replaced my business pumps and purses.
I quickly found out that trying to balance a baby on my hip, a diaper bag and a purse, was simply overwhelming for me. I had to reduce my daily "luggage" and I certainly was not going to leave my child behind. Therefore, the purse had to go!
Because I had to have my drivers license, I opted for a small wallet that I could carry in my pants pocket. I hated leaving behind my wallet of photos, but that sacrifice had to be made. I remember it really was an adjustment for me at the time.
My children are adults now, but I have never returned to carrying a purse. In fact, my wallets have been streamlined and the hated wallet bulge has disappeared.
My Slim Wallet
Slim Wallet RFID Front Pocket Wallet Minimalist Secure Thin Credit Card Holder (Waterproof Grey)After a few decades of carrying a thin wallet that resembles a pocket with a flap, I recently changed to a slim wallet. You wouldn't even notice that I was carrying this flat wallet in my back pocket unless you were intentionally looking. When we went hiking recently, I actually carried it in the upper pocket of my vest and could barely see the outline of the wallet. Again, I doubt most people would even have noticed it.
I admit, I have had to get used to having an "open" wallet, but I definitely prefer the flat construction.
This slim wallet has built-in RFID blocking material which allowed me to eliminate one card I was carrying in my wallet. There are 6 card slots and a front clear ID window for my driver's license. The top loading pocket is perfect for folded dollar bills.
These slim wallets come in a variety of colors. While I don't think it is necessary to match my wallet to my shoes, it would be possible if I wanted to just for fun!
