Beware Of The Bulging Wallet

by Jacqueline Whitmore

Do you suffer from “thick wallet syndrome,” also known as George Costanza Wallet (made famous by the character in the popular television show, Seinfeld)?  If so, it’s probably time to banish your bulging wallet.  All you really need to carry is a credit/debit card, driver’s license or ID, and a couple of twenties in case you find yourself in a pinch.  Besides, you don’t need the back problems that go along with an overstuffed wallet in your back pocket.  Clean out all the old receipts, scrunched up pictures and sandwich-stamp member cards, and invest in something sleek and more sophisticated.  A money clip, for example, fits comfortably inside a jacket pocket and is the most elegant and efficient solution for a man who doesn’t always wear a jacket.  Better leather-goods makers including Tumi, Coach, Bosca and Mont Blanc offer simple card cases, big enough to hold one or two credit cards, a driver’s license or photo ID, and a few business cards.  Try not to carry a lot of change in your pants pocket.  Leave it in your car for use at toll booths or parking meters or put it in the tip jar the next time you visit a coffee shop.
