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.

RoadWired 20" Advanced Protection System Wrap

RoadWired 20One laptop wrap to go please! …Excuse me can I get a side of camcorder with that? The RoadWired 20″ Wrap is the all-in-one padding for anything that you want to keep padded. Your laptop, your camcorder, you name it. Sometimes in crowded situations, like the past 4th of July, I wanted to video tape the extravaganza family outting but not have to take the whole camcorder bag plus the baby bag plus my backpack. So the perfect solution is to “wrap” the camcorder in one wrap for the 3 hour evening out. Easy access and stowage without all the extra gear I didn’t need for the walk, the show and the trip home. Keeping it simple.
