Why I will never buy another wallet

April 7, 2008

I will never buy another wallet. I have found a way to have a new wallet every month or so for pennies. The second story is that I keep my wallet in my front pocket and never lose it or leave it anywhere. It looks like this:

My duct tape wallet

This wallet is a duct tape strap that holds my money and cards together in one bundle. It is very minimalist and the wallet itself takes up almost no space in my pocket. I take the subway everyday to work and I have easy access to my Metrocard. It costs pennies to make and only takes a few minutes. I have found this to be my wallet of choice and cannot find anything better. Believe me I’ve looked. I look so much that my wife is afraid to buy a wallet for me knowing that it must perform better than my duct tape wallet.
Because it is so minimal I must keep it clutter free and always take care of any receipts that end up in it.

All I did was tape two pieces of duct tape to each other leaving a little sticky exposed at each end. Then I wrap it around my essential cards and adhere the sticky ends. Done.
