Our Top Picks for Fun, Unique Wallets

We all need something to put our money, change, and credit cards in, but your wallet doesn’t have to be boring. We wanted to share some different kinds of fun, functional, and unique wallets we found.

If you’re a couponing type of gal, then this wallet might be just up you aisle. Savvycents ($28) markets to the fashionably frugal. This is a very nicely styled and good looking patent leather wallet. Savvycents was created by a woman who wanted her wallet to do things she couldn’t find in other wallets, so she made her own. (Hmmm….this sounds familiar!)

The wallet has an accordion-style file system with five sections inside that can be used to separate money, coupons, receipts, or anything else you’d like to carry but want organized. You even get file cards to label the different sections. The wallet also has a coin pocket on the back, a place for credit cards, your license, and your checkbook. This wallet does it all — a place for everything and everything in its place.

Unique or vegan might be more your style. But you don’t want to sacrifice quality or beauty in the process. Well,  you’re in luck. We found this little gem of a shop on Etsy. Cotton Purr makes some wonderful looking wallets which are also perfectly functional. The compartments and sections you’d expect in a wallet can all be found here.

All of the wallets are made from cotton and are made to order. In fact, you can build your own wallet by choosing which fabrics you’d like to have used. JoJo, who owns Cotton Purr, has received excellent feedback from her customers who rave about their new wallets. Price varies depending on what you choose – the style shown here is $48.

If you gravitate toward true works of art and want a leather wallet, look no further than Anuschka. This family-run business takes unemployed and economically challenged young adults and teaches them to paint the works of art found on Anuschka items.

This clutch wallet has four full-length slit pockets, two full-length zip pockets, 12 card slots, an ID window, a gusset compartment, and a zippered and slit outer pocket combo.

This wallet will surely last you for many years to come and complimented with every use. The one shown here retails for $114.

Our final two selections are a bit more on the fun side……

Milkmuny makes not only a fun and unique wallet, but boy-oh-boy is it creative. Milkmuny takes used milk and juice cartons and repurposes them into these clever little wallets.

The wallets are 3″ x 4″, have four card-sized accordion pockets; have a tough Velcro closure; are made in the USA; have a 45-day warranty; and are nearly waterproof. You get to have something fun and assuredly something unique for just $10. (Think ahead to the holiday season and buy in bulk — what a cute stocking stuffer.)

 

If you’re a crafty person and like to throw a fun party for your girlfriends, then do we have an idea for you. Chill a few bottles of wine, stop by your local craft store, and stock up on Duck Tape®. Yes, that’s right, Duck Tape; and get ready to have some fun! Don’t let this image we used sway you against this, you can make cheetah print, tie dye, checkered, and on and on — the possibilities are just about endless.

Duck Tape wallets are an absolute blast to make, and so simple, too! Watch this video to learn how. Maybe you wouldn’t want to use this for yourself, but you probably know of a child or even a teenager who would be thrilled and delighted with this super cool and definitely unique wallet.

You pull your wallet out of your handbag at least once a day and sometimes ten times in a day. Knowing you have to look at it, why not make it fun and get the job done at the same time? We hope you’ve enjoyed our choices of wallets.  If you have the perfect wallet, be sure to share with us in the comments section.

Changing Seasons with Purse Perfector

It’s the time of year when we shift our storage areas, clothes, coat closets and shoe racks from summer to fall and fall to winter.  At Purse Perfector, we thought we’d ask a professional organizer, Wendy Taddeucci of La Porte, Indiana, how she would alter the contents of her Purse Perfector as the seasons change.

Simply Organized, LLC was launched in October of 2005 and provides Wendy the opportunity to work with clients to control their clutter and establish systems that save time and money.  Wendy says that her goal is to have them, “know what they have and where to find it.”

Wendy agreed to share some of her Purse Perfector usage secrets with our blog when thinking about changing seasons.  She stated that, “this summer I kept my Purse Perfector loaded with a small tube of sunscreen, which I have swapped out in favor of a tube of hand cream for the fall and winter.  I don’t have to worry about the tube opening up or getting squished.  It’s secure in the Purse Perfector.”

Wendy also says that she most enjoys her Purse Perfector because of “the ease of use!  I loaded it up once and now I can swap out purses whenever I want.  I just remove the Purse Perfector from my current purse and place it into my new purse.  It’s so simple!”

Some more information about Wendy: She is an active member of NAPO (National Association of Professional Organizers); she is a trained provider for NAPO in the Schools; she is a member of the NSGCD (National Study Group on Chronic Disorganization); and she has earned her Level II CD Specialist Certificate as well as her Certificate of Study in Chronic Disorganization.

Wendy has been featured on A & E’s Hoarders, WNDU Channel 16 News, as well as in print.

Great idea and problem solved

One woman’s success story of starting a business
– By Susanne Quigley

A short excerpt

It only took showing the Purse Perfector to a few of her friends for Lyn to realize that it wasn’t just a personal problem that she had solved, but that she had created something that would make life easier for women across the globe.

“In the fall of 2001, I was alone at home for a weekend and spent it in my sewing room, determined to figure out the perfect purse design in order to solve my problem,” Lyn says, “and I came out of this room days later with a prototype that now is the basis for the Purse Perfector.” After spending countless hours creating and recreating, Lyn had come up with the ideal insert to fit every bag in her collection, including backpacks and briefcase.” Read the full article on exmainer.com
