a few months ago I shifted to a card case that just holds a credit card and an id. it was very liberating, if hard, to leave everything else at home, but it makes a huge difference. money clip and card instead of heavy wallet, and every night I put away any papersw that I have collected.
I did something similar about a year ago and have been much happier since. Â I picked up a Tumi wallet at Nordstom that has three slots on each side and a clip in the center to hold folded bills. Â It's thinner than any wallet I've ever had. Â Then I took out everything that I don't use almost daily. Â I carry only my driver's license, debit card, personal credit card, and corporate card. Â No grocery store loyalty cards, movie rental cards, medical plan card, or any other type of membership card. Â If I need these things they can live in the car since I will be driving to where I would use them. Â I should probably pull that corporate card out too. The next thing I would like to do is eliminate keys. Â My next car will have some form of keyless entry so the ignition key can stay inside. Â (Might take me a while to trust that system though.) Â I enter the house through the garage so I don't need to carry the house key. Â I use plastic for almost all purchases so I rarely have change or much cash. Â That leaves me with just a phone to flop around my front pocket. Â I'm already eyeing the replacement for my Sony-Ericsson T616, and you guessed it, size matters.

) Oddly, despite all this effort and focus I still carry my BlackBerry clipped on my belt. The quick-draw convenience is worth the stylistic hit. At least that's what I tell myself.
