Wallet Discussion - Coins - Page 2

post #16 of 36
I too have a slim wallet with no space for coins. I also don't like coins jiggling around in my pocket. Solution? When you get change from a store, wrap the coins in the receipt you just got (if you don't need it) or a napkin, then put it in your pocket. Presto! No noise, no scraping of phones, etc.

I dont do coins. I use my CC and if I somehow end up paying with cash and get coins in return I leave them, they annoy me. EDIT: Oh yeah, I use a slim black leather case by hugo boss for my CC and other cards. As I said, I dont do coins.

I carry a small leather coin purse for change. As soon as I get back to my car, I transfer the coins into plastic tubes . The tubes are old pill containers from the drugstore. This way the coins are always available for tolls, meters, etc.

+1 on the bulky....even impractical depending on your tastes

no one can possibly be carrying around that many coins that they would need a second wallet/holder.....just keep em in your pocket and transfer to your coin holder later?

I drop off my coins in a little container either at home or at work. The work stash comes in really handy for grabbing a few coins for coffee and the like... I try never to carry any coins around

My keychain is designed to carry English coins, but is perfectly fit for U.S. dimes; I carry 90 cents.

I find that when I carry a few coins it often saves me from receiving many coins as change.

When studying abroad I got used to carrying a little coin purse since they had coins worth more than $5. We all had them there. I think the best size can fit a few cards, a few bills, a few coins, and a few keys.

No. Collect them and send them to me.

Good idea.

I would suggest going to your local tailor and having them attach a small coin pocket into the waist band of your pants with a zip. Very easy and doesnt bulge out.

Hope this was of some help.

Coins in wallets are a big no no! Far too bulky.

Thin your wallet down to the minimum requirements (remeber, it is NOT a filing cabinet) and put that in either back pocket.

Coins strangely are best in the coin pocket to one of the trouser side pockets or I actually find in the other back pocket alongside a handkerchief. They don't move about nor do they bulge.

Can you post a pic of that? Thanks.

There is nothing better than when you've blown all your cash at the bar and then you find enough coins in your pants pocket to buy a late night kebab.

This was exactly what I was wondering also. Are coin purses only reserved for Grandpa? I suppose to avoid all of this you could just suck it up and always get change and empty out your pockets when you get back to the office / home.

There is one thing that I hate the most is if you buy something that it's $3.05 you get a ton of change back!!!

Would you really be made fun of if you had a $100 Coach coin case? meh, do what you want and nevermind what other people think.

My big problem is that I get in my car and all the change falls out of my pockets and under the seat.

Does that conversation usually start with, "How old are you again?"
