The fanciest purse is only as good as the wallet inside. Wallets should be easy to find, fast to use, and hold everything but the kitchen sink. There was a time that I was into the “minimalist” wallet. Just a simple slab of leather with a few card slots. But then I grew up and realized that I need my wallet to do more.
Basically, I need a wallet that organizes my entire life and gives me exactly what I want when I want it and stores everything neat and tidy so I can keep up with my crazy schedule. Is that too much to ask? I think not. Read on for my top 5 wallets that are also great life organizers.
What Makes an Organized Wallet?
- The perfect wallet should be the right size, not too big but definitely not too small.
- It should be easy to open and easy to close.
- It should have some secured zippered pockets for loose change and personal items, open pockets for receipts and papers, and card slots for easy access to credit and ID. I
- t should have an easy way to store money. This should be a no-brainer, but a lot of wallets don’t actually have a spot that is big enough and easy enough to slip in a dollar bill.
- It should be durable. For me, this means easy to clean and wipe off from whatever crumbs, spills, or damp wipes are in the bottom of my bag.
Here’s my top picks!
The hobo wallet
I used this wallet for years and loved it. Basically, the center is you’re your everyday use, just a few card slots and a spot for ID and a zippered pouch at the top that I used for cash. Each side of this wallet is actually a pouch that is large enough for anything and everything you can think of.
I used one side for paper receipts and coupons and the other side for chap stick, cell phone, and personal items. I love that it is small enough to put in a handbag, but large enough to use on its own for date nights. You can find the HOBO wallet for a deal on Amazon here.
Borgasets wallets are on nearly every list of wallet-must-haves, because they are beautiful, durable, and functional. This wallet starts with a snap closure for your daily essentials, but also features a zip around section that is large enough to hold cash, cell phone, receipts, and more. For only $40 you can find this amazing wallet here.
This all around zip wallet from Vera is sleek and beautiful, I love that the inside opens up like an accordion folder, which allows you to organize all your items as you wish. I don’t know how long this deal will last but right now this is 50% off on Amazon, found here.
