I’ve always been a fan of carrying my stuff in my front pocket but a lot of times wallets are just too thick. I’ve also used a money clip but I did not like the fact that all my cards would not fit in it.
There has to be a better solution…
Introducing The Money Band
So I started surfing the web looking for interesting yet simple wallet ideas and came across the Money-band. At first I figured they were just selling rubber bands for a few bucks but then I decided to give it a shot anyway. I figured it was far less than the $20+ I’ve spent on decent leather wallets over the years. Plus I really liked their slogan:
As simple as possible, but not any simpler.”
A few days ago I received it in the mail and it turns out it really is just a rubber band. But it’s a custom sizeed one that makes carrying your cash and cards really easy. I know this because I tried using other rubber bands and none of them fit the way I wanted them to.
What Does It Hold?
As you can see in the picture above, I’ve managed to fit everything I need inside the band. I currently carry the following items:
- Debit Card (Personal)
- Debit Card (Business)
- Drivers License
- Health Insurance Card
- 3 Business Cards
- Apartment Key
- Mail Key
I managed to put the two keys on a very small key ring and then put it around the rubber band. That way I never leave home without my keys or my wallet since they are connected.
So far, I’m loving the simplicity and really love the fact that it’s waterproof. It’s sort of dog proof as well, though I’m sure my dog could eat the rubber band if she wanted to.
Update: My dog did in fact destroy my Money-band, but I loved it so much I went ahead and ordered another one.
