How to Slim your Wallet

March 06, 2015 0 Comments

From thick to slim wallet

That wallet on the left there was, up until a few years ago, the wallet I carried around daily in my pocket for a good 5 years, it cost me about £60 from M&S. The wallet on the right is the wallet I'm currently using (a Trove fisherman, which costs £30). So take it from me, I know a thing or two about wallet slimming. 

If that bulky leather wallet on the left looks even remotely familiar, then the likelihood is that you need to make a few changes my friend. I imagine you're fed up of carrying around a bulky, impractical wallet that is both uncomfortable and unfashionable. Maybe no-one has had the guts to tell you this to your face, but trust me, that pocket bulge it's giving you makes you look, frankly, ridiculous.

Now you've made the decision to slim down your wallet, one of the key questions you should ask yourself is: "what do I really need to carry?". If you really think about it,  you'll probably find it is a lot less than you thought, or at least than what you currently carry in your wallet. Despite considerably minimising my own wallet bulk, I've shockingly never once found myself thinking "Ah, I wish I still had that receipt for a mars bar I bought last week".

The infographic below shows the common culprits for a thick wallet, and what you can do to remedy pocket bulge. Look out for our articles in the coming weeks where we will look a little bit more in depth about the best ways to tackle each of these problems, providing you with ways that you can considerably reduce your wallet and every day carry bulk, without being found wanting.

Also see our article on smartphone apps that can help reduce your wallet clutter, and what to do with coins.

Now you have seen the light, and are converted to slimming your wallet, a great place to start is by checking out our range of slim, minimalist wallets.
