I showed this to my wife hoping she’d be impressed and after she stopped laughing I got “the look”.

I’ve always worried about my wallet surviving a fire. Far more so than my flammable bill wad of Yen, Dollars and Euros.

Yes, I’ve always felt a secret shame that knew no name until today, that I didnt have a flame proof buttery leather wallet that holds my smartphone, IDs and all. Every damn time I go to pay for a meal that shame wells up from deep within me and crushes my spirit just a little. Praise the heavens above that Boing Boing Store understands my problem and has a solution!

I never put my cash in my wallet.

If I get pick pocketed, I’ll either lose my cash or my ID/Credit cards, but not both.


#4

I use a 60 year old binder clip as a wallet. It was free and gets all sorts of positive feedback.

But in no way shape or form do I want people to notice or say a thing about it. It is not a statement. Someone looking for a statement does not mean I am making one. It’s a binder clip. I’m sticking to it.

I deposited my street cred as bitcoin in a USB dead drop some time ago.


#6

People buy wallets?

I like the Allet wallet. Won’t break the bank (Which is kind of the point for a wallet, I think. Sorry Bellroy, I love you, but $60? No thanks.) and is is tall enough to have two layers of cards side-by-side, so you’re not sitting on a fat wad of crap (if you’re a back-pocket person.) Also has a longer pocket behind the bill section where you can put a few checks, coupons, love notes, etc. without folding them. Weirdly it’s only a smidgen bigger than those cardstock-cover smaller 3X5 notebooks I tend to also carry in my pockets.

Let’s see, times I’ve left my wallet with all my ID and plastic, or a stack of money on top of my car - Zero

Times I’ve left my iPhone on top of the car - Once.

Disaster averted.
Srsly, keeping all your goodies with your iPhone is a doomed prospect.

Also, maybe it’s different where you are, but around here “Keeper” refers to a feminine hygeine product.


#9

Where is “here” and what feminine hygiene product?


#10

North America, and a menstrual cup.

Sure it’s used as a descriptive still, like “That’s a keeper!” but referencing an object with that name and, at least among crunchy women, they’re talking about their keeper, the thing they use instead of pads/tampons.


#11

Gee the things I miss out on living half a world away…


#12

Don’t look at me. I roll my own.


#13

I mean, you can probably keep your money in a keeper, but there’s gotta be better more convenient places, though less secure than a keeper.


#14

This is mine. It was a gift, “mighty wallet” branded and made of tyvek, probably from Pike’s Market.

It’s almost worn out, though, so I’ll be making a new one soon. (If somebody doesn’t give me another first.)


#15

I did, about 25 years ago. I’m guessing it has another 3 or 4 years before it gives up entirely. When that happens… I donno. If we’re not scraping by in a post apocalyptic hellscape, I’ll probably buy another one.


#16

I have an engraved money clip that my grandma bought me. Does that keep my street cred as a bro?


#17

I get mine from my in-laws at Christmas, every-other-year.

This year I got a pizza stone. The 3rd in my collection, not counting the one I threw out.

E for Effort.


#18

For a limited time, I am offering my own custom ultra-slender wallets at 50% off:

##Yes! We accept Blitkoinz!


#19

Hmmm, can those be used for paving?

The treads of the steps in my stable are made of broken pieces of stone countertop somebody threw out (the risers are salvaged brick).


#20

The top drawer of my nightstand is packed with various wallets/money-clips/etc that I have been given over the years… I used to try to rotate through them, just for shits-n-giggles, but now I am too lazy to take 30 seconds to move my cards between them.
