Commuter Series Wallet case – My new favorite invention

I have a tendency to overload my own wallet with varying forms of plastic, old receipts, an expired ID that has no business being in there, a gym membership card that I should definitely think about using, stamps, gift cards and a number of random items that I won’t mention out of sheer embarrassment. When I first installed my phone in its new Commuter Series Wallet case I thought deliberately about downsizing. What do I actually need to carry with me? What can I leave behind? These coupons are expired, so why in the world are they still in my wallet?

I settled on three things: driver’s license/ID, credit card and a one of those fancy new hundred dollar bills that look like euros … kidding, it’s a ten. Insert sigh of relief here. That felt good. Light. And still prepared.

Now when I go to a show I slip my phone in my back pocket — it has everything I need for admission and overpriced cocktails, and I can still get my dance on without being weighed down by a purse. When I hop on my bike for a roll around town I have my phone for music (and sometimes directions) and cash for a pit stop at my favorite coffee shop.

I want your life to be this easy.

We are conducting a Commuter Series Wallet contest through Instagram. The contest has just been extended until November 20. This allows you more time to get creative. Submit a video or picture that shows us everything you keep in your wallet. Use the hashtags #CommuterWallet and #Simplify, and tell us what three things you would keep in your new Commuter Series Wallet case.

Have fun, be original, and show us why you need to simplify.

Travel and adventure are my favorite. Then reading and laughing and writing. And dancing! Wine, too. And music-definitely music. I think October is a quite superior time of year, and I always have glitter pens handy.
