    Money Clip?
    Change purse?
    some other odd way?

    -I'm sick of my wallet. I hate regular bulky wallets, and the slim one I have now has no place for bills. I need ideas. (no "prison search" type plans, please.)

    I use a wallet. But I rarely carry cash. I am cash poor.

    I usually use a duct tape wallet in the summer and a leather trucker wallet in the winter. Some people call the trucker wallet a biker wallet. It is the wallet shown below but in plain black with black leather lacing rather than the stitching.

    I like the trucker wallet because it is flat and not so bulky. Unfortunately, it looks really really stupid with shorts. Hence I do not use it in the summer.

    I hate carrying coins in my pocket, so all my wallets need some sort of coin pocket.

  6. I use a really small wallet, about the size of a credit card (actually it might be a credit card wallet :)).

    My bills I fold in half and stuff behind my drivers license.

    Coins go in my pocket

    I hope this helps
  7. A wallet, but the second I put my check in the bank... it goes to bills. So I guess I carry change in my pocket
  8. I usually carry it like I would a baby - Very carefully cuz if I drop it and the wind blows it away...there goes all my money for a year.

    I carry notes and cards in my wallet, which is very thin.

    I carry coins in my left hand pocket.

    When I get home on a night, the coins go into a pint glass on my desk.

    When I go back out, i pull out the ones from the glass that I want (Ie; anything silver or gold, nothing copper)

    I only carry plastic. I almost never have any cash on me. Pay with debit or credit everywhere. And the last bastion of me needing cash ( McDonlands ) now takes plastic and can also charge to my tollpass in my car:)

    Get a man purse. It's all the rage these days. :p

    +1. I also take all the change in my pockets and put it in a jar. It's the noise of loose change that drives me nuts.

    I use a "Toronto Trifold" from Fossil. Quite possibly the most comfortable and spacious wallet I have used. It is very thin and soft. There have been many times where I have reached to my back pocket thinking I have lost my wallet, but it is always there. There is ample amount of room for bills and cards alike.

    OH man....I have so much of it and carry it in so many different ways. Typically though I hire a man off the street to walk behind me pushing a wheel barrow with most of my cash in it. I also have custom ties made out of 100 dollar bills (or sometimes larger denominations) and when I want to buy something I pull out a HUGE pair of silver scissors and cut off however many hundreds I need from my tie. Also I wear a big stovepipe hat and several bundles of money can usually be found under that or in the toes of my enormous, clown-like shoes.

    Also I usually carry several chunks of raw gold ore...mostly a relic of the Y2K scare but you never can be too careful. Those I carry in a climber's chalk bag on my belt. I have another such bag on the other side containing PEZ dispensers because if Armegeddon hits they'll be extremely valuable and people will use them as currency.

    Brad. Seek treatment. Seriously. :D

    I have a little cloth pouch-thing I keep my money in, so it won't fall out of my pocket when I squat down at work. I keep all the 'money' I ever have in it. Pffftttt... money. Anyone remember money? I think I may have had it before kids.

    He already is, my friend.

    I actually used to hire T to push the wheelbarrow but he got too expensive when Conan O'Brian started hiring him...stupid O'Brian.

  20. I have a pretty neat spring-loaded money clip that on the backside has a card-carrier for my debit & driver's licence / med card. Oh, and my TGI Friday's card...you never know when it's time for a snack. ;)

    Mine looks just like this, but with a spring-loaded clip

    You can find them anywhere for @ 15-25 bucks. I used to do the whole chain wallet thing.
