I Discovered This Organization Hack by Accident, but I Can't Recommend It Enough
It all started by accident. I was given a large wallet for my birthday, but I prefer small bags, and my new wallet didn't fit. So I invested in a little card case that could live in my going-out crossbody bags. Then I got lazy. My ID and a credit card were already in my card case, and I didn't feel like constantly transferring them back and forth. I only take one credit card when I go out in case something happens or gets lost, and I have a passport card that acts as an alternate form of ID. So basically, I have two fully functional wallets. Each contains at least one credit card and one form of identification.
This system works so well for me, I can't believe I hadn't thought of it sooner. I never worry about losing my wallet anymore, because I know that if I do, I have another one ready to go. This all came to fruition a couple of weeks ago, when I was traveling. I left my card case at a friend's house and wouldn't be able to get it for a week. Instead of panicking, I remained calm because I knew that I had my big wallet at home and could use that until I was able to retrieve my card case. Seriously, if you want to be prepared and save yourself a boatload of stress, invest in two wallets. Just keep reading to shop both big and small wallet options.
