How To Slim Down Your Wallet

What do you think should be included in every wallet? There are a few obvious things such as a debit/credit card, a license, even the insurance cards could be considered a "must-have." 

But what about the random cards you’ll need maybe once a month? Does the local coffee shop punch card or even your library card make the cut? It comes down to the type of lifestyle you choose; are you the “George Costanza" of wallets or the “debit card & license stashed in your phone case,” type of person. 

I had breakfast with a friend this week and he argued that he doesn’t need anything else beyond an ID and debit card. Learning to ask "why" do I have this card with me will help in reducing the clutter in your pocket, hencemaking life easier.

The “Must Haves” Wherever You Go:

The identification card is a must when slimming down the wallet, whether you are walking through TSA or trying to grab a beverage from the local watering hole, you’ll depend on your ID to get you there. 

Additionally, licenses like boating, fishing or hunting cards may be a must-have in certain individual’s wallets, while some people may need to carry a card to get into their apartment, access gates at work, etc. 

A way to pay is a modern-day must; debit and credit cards are more convenient than carrying cash with you everywhere.


Must Have List:
-License 
-Way to Pay. Debit / Credit Card
-Insurance Cards
-Permit Cards
-Access Cards
-Spare Cash

Do Loyalty Cards Make the Cut?

Nearly every retail store we shop at has a program set up to bring you back for follow-up purchases. In many cases it does work to create a customer excited for their next discounted visit, but do you really need ten different loyalty cards in your wallet? 

Hopefully, the store has a way to connect your phone number to the card; that is how I got rid of all mine. Using digital-application alternatives can free up a lot of space and keep record of cards you do not need everyday, check outLastPass Wallet.

Find a Smaller Wallet Alternative

Once you have tossed all the unnecessary stuff, your wallet will look like it has lost some weight. At Trayvax one of our main goals is to help you by creating wallets to simplify your on-the-go lifestyle. Whether your focus is on fashion or utility, we have created a wallet to exceed your expectations!

Living the Van Life: Cooking a Meal Outside

Returning to our natural roots as humans comes with a serene feeling only Mother Nature can provide. Getting away from it all. Last week we did just that with Chad Derosa from Living The Van LifeNaturally we escaped to Pacific Northwest’s beautiful North Cascade mountains, a short drive from the Trayvax warehouse in Bellingham.

Cooking a meal outside can be quick and easy. Whether it is the backyard campout, one night camping escape to fully living off the grid we all have something to gain from sitting around hot coals cooking food as our ancestors did.
