See how Wally wallets deliver the same contents in half the size
With a well-designed wallet, you can carry the same contents as your big wallet in a slim profile that's just half the size. Since seeing is believing, we put Wally Bifold to the test up against a classic Costanza Clunker.
Then again, do you really need to carry all the cards you've accumulated? A lighter load has numerous benefits — not only does it free you from dealing with unnecessary clutter, you'll find a slim wallet can give you relief from back pain!
We've put together our top 4 tips for slimming your wallet.
1. Pick the Essentials.
What's in your wallet? No, seriously — does it need to be there? To instantly alleviate a bulging embarrassment, carry only the items you use daily: Empty your wallet. Now put back only the must-haves you use regularly. Digitize what's left in a password-protected app like Dashlane, and put them aside so they're literally out of sight out of mind. Nervous? Skeptical? Try it for a week ... Some cards might creep back in if you let them, but we bet you'll be happily surprised at what you don't miss.
2. Go Digital.
It's a new generation, but the old adage is still true: There’s an app for that! Put that pocket-sized computer to work. In addition to Dashlane, we've compiled highly rated wallet-slimming apps. If you own an iPhone, Apple Wallet can help you manage your gift card balances, coupons, boarding passes, concert tickets and more — so your real wallet doesn't have to. In fact, with our Wally Case, some lucky minimalists have been able to quit carrying a wallet entirely. #goals
3. Carry Less Cash.
Not only does most everywhere accept plastic, our phones now offer services like Apple Pay, Samsung Pay, and Google Wallet for secure, wireless transactions that further limit the need to carry paper money. For person-to-person payments try Venmo — it’s easy, widely used and refreshingly free.
4. Get a Slimmer Wallet.
Now that you have less to carry, your wallet will naturally be slimmer. But all that work is for nothing if your wallet is inherently bulky. We know what you're thinking, Does which wallet I carry really make a difference? A: Definitely.
In traditional wallet construction, every slot adds yet another layer of thickness... Using premium materials and our trademarked Wally Pull-Tab™ mechanism, we're able to achieve a slim design without the typical leather dividers that create bulk.
Distil wallets reduce bulk with patent-pending touches.
Typically, leather will stretch with every card you add, meaning you have no choice but to hold onto everything if you don't want your cards to fall out of loose pockets. Not so with our innovations like FlexLock and MagLock pockets, which work in perfect harmony with the pull-tab to reveal your cards stored securely inside.
We made it slim, but you make it minimal.
Whether it's physical or psychological, having a slimmer wallet is a great way to reinforce the behavior of carrying less. It takes discipline, but you can do this — you can slim your wallet!
