What is a Minimalist Wallet?
A minimalist wallet can hold multiple cards, weighs less than eight ounces and has an intuitive design that does not have any wasted material. Thus it will not weigh down your lifestyle.


"What is a minimalist wallet" Defined:

Functionality, though cleanliness is a quality most of us strive for, it is difficult to perfect in every aspect of your life. Carrying a minimalist wallet is no different, it is designed with purpose ... to efficientlyslim down your wallet. We move faster with less stuff.

A slimmer wallet will help you hit your step-count goal even quicker each day. But don’t worry, even a slim wallet can hold all your "must haves." Designed with utility in mind a minimalist wallet holds what you need and nothing extra! Making a conscious choice to not purchase items that add no direct value to your life is the first step to decluttering.

The minimalist philosophy is abouthaving less stuff; living a life based on experiences rather than temporary possessions. When an individual begins removing unnecessary stressors that have cluttered their daily life, they see the endless practical benefits and how it impacts their life for the positive.
Here are a few examples:
  • A free flowing head space
  • More time for productivity
  • Ability to focus on things that matter most like traveling or relationships

Do you remember the wallets from a decade ago that had the accordion style picture holder, which made it feel like you were carrying around a slinky in your wallet? Those types of wallets have gone the way of the home phone.

If you are the person with that type of wallet in your back pocket as you read this, this is your wake up call!. Making the switch to a minimalist wallet can be a difficult transition, but give it a try for a week and you will make the switch ... trust us.

Learning to say "no," can be life-changing when trying to practice a healthy lifestyle. When it comes to a minimalist, everyday carry wallet this is not any different.

"Do you want to sign up for our customer loyalty program," or "Do you want to open a store credit card for 20% off today?" Are all opportunities to add things you will not need three months down the road.

When practicing a healthy, minimalist lifestyle, these situations open our eyes to how much “stuff” makes it into our wallets! Learning to say “no” will make it easier to avoid getting caught in that  moment when someone offers you something you do not need on your person. Thus, keeping your minimalist wallet slim for years to come.

Summary:

A minimalist wallet...

  • Weighs less than 8 ounces
  • Holds multiple cards
  • No extra bulk or wasted material
  • Built with simplicity and ingenuity in mind
  • Holds everything you need and nothing extra for years to come!
