    Default Your wallet setup

    Similar to the key ring thread... How about your wallet!

    I have a (one fold wallet) i use seldomly for vacations and such with 3/4 card holders, a bill slot and a clear plastic area (for ID cards and such).

    However, I have a hard time using this in my day to day life. For carrying around business cards, work ID cards, etc...
    What do you guys do to combat this?

    have ~10 of my most important cards in a holder that is attached to the back of my phone, leave the rest at home and swap in as needed (ie. boat license) cash goes in pocket, and thats it.

    its so freeing and comfortable not to carry around an actual wallet

    well... what if i lost my wallet? at least my phone has tracking

    I carry a separate business card sleeve when I need to. It holds about a dozen cards but is pretty slim.

    My wallet is fat enough due to me carrying receipts, the RFID card for my daughters daycare and a lot of cards.

    I ditched the traditional wallet a few years ago. These days I walk around with drivers, debit, health card and corporate cc. There is a little band that I toss cash and a few business cards in.

    Also slimed down with this.

    7 cards + cash.

    Now if 100% vendor accepts Android pay, I may be able to lose one more card.

    +1 on a phone wallet case.
    been using one for over 4 years now and never had any issues.
    I can fit 3 cards (driver license, CC, debit) and can even squeeze the bus pass.

    Been using the SILK iphone cases since the Iphone 5 era but now a days I like the one I made myself with a thin iphone case, old pair of pants, super glue and red stitches as it's thinner than the SILK case
    8 months and even dropped the phone on Country Hills while doing 50kmh and holding strong

DL, Visa, Bank Card, Airmiles, Costco, Sbux, Student ID/Bus Pass, PAL, Pal Conditions card, Laminated copy of SIN, Copy of Birth Cert, Apega registration, AB Health Card, Boaters License, Home/Auto Insurrance Card, then to round it off about a half dozen business cards. All in a leather trifold.

    Guys please don't put your sin or birth certificate in your wallets. You don't need it unless you know in advance, and you might as well just give your entire life away to ID thieves when you lose your wallet.

    I've used one like this for a few years. Holds my 6 cards and whatever random cash in a very low profile.

    I have a tri-fold Costanza-style that I have had since 2005

    I bought it in Italy and it's held up phenomenally well, I will probably get another 10 years out of it easy.

    Never been a fan of money clips or the rigid wallets that seem to be popular.

    I'm old-school, full wallet.
    Not quite George Costanza, but close.
    Wallet has a fold out flap with windowed pouch for drivers license on one side, and 4 cards on the other. Then each side of wallet has 4 slots.

    So, 3 credit cards, debit card, costco card. Drivers license, air miles, blue cross card, great waste of life card, and AB health.
    Then there's 2 RFID cards for 2 different buildings. Bunch of receipts, couple of business cards, and if there's any room left, some cash
