The Fat Wallet Fix

Top 4 Tips to Carry a Wallet That's Half the Size

Wally Bifold by Distil Union

Have you noticed? Our phones have gotten bigger. Sure our technology can do more, but it means we have more to fit in our pockets. Not only do fat bulges in your back pocket look bad and cause damage to your clothing (and not to mention your lower back), these days there's just no need for hauling a Costanza clunker around with you every day:

  1. Pick the Essentials.

    If you're one of those people with a bulging wallet, we recommend starting with the cards you use daily. Empty your wallet. Now put back only the must-haves you use every day, and save versions of those less-used cards in an app with password protection, like Dashlane. Scared? Try it for a day... then 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.

    There’s an app for that, as they say, so put that pocket-sized computer to work! We've compiled our favorite apps, including VenmoKey Ring, and powerhouse Evernote. If you own an iPhone, Apple Wallet can help you manage your cards, boarding passes and more so your real wallet doesn't have to. New mantra: My wallet is not my library. Let an old shoebox be your nostalgic archives, and shred or recycle those crumpled paper dinosaurs. 

  3. Carry Less Cash.

    Not only does most everywhere accept plastic, our phones now offer services like Apple Pay, Samsung Pay, and Google Wallet that further limit the need to carry paper money. For person-to-person payments try Venmo – it’s easy and totally free.

  4. Get a Slimmer Wallet.

    Sure, your wallet will naturally be slimmer now that you have less to carry. 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. 


We made it slim, you make it minimal.

In traditional wallet construction, every slot adds another layer of thickness... Using our trademarked Wally Pull-Tab™ mechanism, we're able to achieve a slim design without the typical leather dividers that create bulk. And whether it's physical or psychological, having a slimmer wallet is a great way to reinforce the behavior of carrying less. We made it slim, but you make it minimal. Discipline, young grasshopper. You can do this – you can slim your wallet!
