If it's that time where you need to slim your wallet (Hint: check out this blog if you're not sure where to start) these smart life hacks will help you streamline that big wallet and switch to a minimalist one. Consider these when making the ultimate switch:
Throw it out
Throw out receipts you don't need, expired vouchers, cinema stubs and other pieces of paper that are just weighing you down! You shouldn't be using your wallet as a filing cabinet.
Less is more
Carry around less cash and visit the ATM only when you need to draw out money for a specific purpose. In the age of contactless and cards do you really need to be carrying around quite so much?
Don't get sentimental
Have you been carrying around that photo of your family for the last 5 years? Yes. Picture of your dog? Yes. Cousin's kid? Yes. Store these sentimental family photos in an album at home where they can't get damaged or lost. Better yet, pop them in a frame on your desk at work so you can still admire them when you're out.
Be slim smart
Purchasing a slim wallet will obviously help you to reduce the amount your carry. But, could you be even smarter about it? Most slim wallets fit up to 10 cards. If you have a tendency to over-carry, why not opt for a wallet that only fits 5 cards. That way you're not tempted to take the kitchen sink to the supermarket.
Mix and match
Choosing a wallet that not only suits your lifestyle needs but also your fashion can be very tricky! Why not opt for a mix and match slim wallet? We like the SECRID range - pick a cardholder, add a money band and on occasions (when we're travelling) we even place in the money slide to give extra storage options for foreign money/ID cards and more. Give it a try here.
Without an RFID blocking wallet, it seems thieves will be able to steal your credit card information simply by scanning your cards when standing next to you. Find out more about RFID blocking.
