    What kind of wallet do you use?

    Just curious.
    My black Eagle Creek hemp wallet is 20+ years old and looks it.
    Like to replace it with a nice leather or eel skin one.
    Always carried a trifold. Bulkier but more room.

    Anyone here used both but prefer bifolds?
    (Yes Ken, I know you you're a bi kind of guy)

    Jesus dude
    I have a Castanza wallet (ancient Seinfeld)

    I like using cash. Either there or it's not, but you're not paying interest at least.
    Only carry 2 credit cards but have my ATM cards and a few other things...too much.
    Have a habit of always asking for a cc receipt so I can double check the charges or use them for a return, but they add up.

    Use credit 90% of the time regardless.
    Loving the Rakuten one I got. Better rate than my *sh*tty* BOA one and I get money back in points that add up a lot more quickly.
    Just ordered a new wallet and watch, didn't pay (them) at all

    Anyway, I try to go through my wallet every week or so and take out receipts and notes from work. Just always had a trifold and am thinking of going with a bifold. Will know in a week or so.

    ATT won't buy space on a redundant line up here, so when the line goes down we're all f*cked.
    Including me and my woman if I didn't have cash.

    I get by just fine with carrying no cash,haven't carried cash in many years,

    a CC is safer than a debit/atm card also.

    I use a alaska air miles card and it really works.that's how I fly to the islands free every other trip.

    I have had the card 5 years now and have never paid a penny in interest,as I said ,I pay the full balance every statement,I also have an insane good fico scores as well.due in part to that CC.

    I use Quicken and online banking to track my finances daily.all my bills are auto pay on my cc and are all paperless as well,I pay one bill pay a month manually and that's to the cc.and many of the stores I shop at send me an email receipt with no paper trail.I am a n a l about my ID theft protection and my credit reports and fico scores.

    and that seinfeld wallet episode is one of my favorites.

    I carry black leather wallet, CK currently that I picked up at TJ-Maxx/Marshalls for $10-15. I replace it every 3-4 years I suppose. I prefer the bifold type, as it sits flatter in my pocket, even though I fill it up with too much junk/cards that I don't use regularly.

    Old black bi-fold wallet.
    Holds cards and crap I stuff in it periodically.
    Clean it out every 5 xmas or so when gifted a new one.
    NEVER have cash in wallet, cash always in front pocket.

    I actually spend less NOT carrying cash.not that places I go to don't take my CC,but cash seems to be easier to spend,it seems to find ways out of my pocket when I have it.

    So when the lights go down we're all f*cked.
    Including me and my blow up woman if I didn't have cash to pay Bubbles off. (he's out of prison now and remembers me from childhood)

    Fixed!

    We appreciate your honesty, Humby, however that's TMI...

    Pics of said girlfriend or it didn't happen!

    Definitely not bi here, I have used a trifold for ~40 years, currently using a Fossil.

    I would just have to copy and paste everything Dan is saying. I do carry a little cash for tips. In restaurants I prefer to leave cash than put it on the credit card receipt. I also carry virtually nothing in my wallet, credit card, ATM card, D/L and medical id.

    I should've been more specific in my questions.

    Bifold or trifold?

    Not according to gossip.
    Though [Ken] size [/Ken] might come into play in *those* regards.

    What is it a fossil of? Hoping it's smooth.

    Sorry.

    Hey Humboldt

    I just bought this one about a month ago.
    Love it.

    Needed to replace the garbage I bought at Wally world a year ago that completely fell apart.
