    Would it be acceptable to have one flat small wallet for notes and cards then have a little man pouch thing somewhere else for coins because I am getting sick of my chunky wallet I have now yet I still need/use coins

    What do you guys tend to do with your coins. And what do you think of coin pouches

    I got sick of carrying coins around.

    I keep a roll of quarters in my car for parking and I bought a cheap-ass plastic coin sorter thing (cost me $3) that I keep at home. I got some wrappers from the bank and whenever I pay cash and get change I dump it in there as soon as I get home. Of course, that does mean that I end up with the coins in my pocket for a bit until I return home and do so.

    there are some wallets with a small section for coins. Somebody else might give some examples but I've seen some very nice ones that I've liked.

    Yeah, there are some wallets that have a small, zipped section where you can store coins. They usually tend to be rather bulky, though.

    I was speaking of non-zipped versions which are slimmer and more elegant.

    Oops, my bad. I usually tend to buy the really slim trifolds, and storing coins isn't exactly on my list of top features for a wallet. [​IMG]

    Got any pictures?

    Louis Vuitton has quite a few options in what you're looking for. Check out the Taiga leather.

    Are coin pouches an accepted thing though or is it something one would be ridiculed for

    I have my bifold wallet and a small matching coin purse. If I don't want to lug around coins, I leave the purse at home.

    I put coins in the coin pocket of my pants or jacket.

    Coins are not money. Throw them away.

    Meters take quarters. That makes them money. Everything else is shrapnel and can be safely jettisoned.

    I hate bulging wallets, so keeping my coins in there is not an option. (Right now I keep a slim wallet that only holds cards.) However, I also hate the sound and feeling of coins jingling in my pockets.

    Solution? A cheap plastic coin purse that I keep in my messenger bag. My one cost $2 from Chinatown and has the Pokemon character Pikachu on it. It's a terrific conversation starter.

    There are even better ones out there. I just found this one on Etsy, which is perfect if you're a former Nintendo freak like me:
