1.Finding what is important to you

When was the last time you went through your wallet? You might be surprised to find what you are still carrying around with you on a daily basis like old receipts and vouchers, foreign cash from that trip abroad. You need to have a declutter and keep only the essential items.

The essential can mean something different when you compare it to someone else to make sure you do this on your own. Once you have done this you will see the amount of room you will need for everything, narrowing down your ideal wallet type before you even start looking.

2. Slim or bulky wallets?

There are many types of wallets available, from the design to the material to the color. If you are a minimalist then a slim wallet would be perfect as it would suit your style and stop you from hording items that you do not actually need.

However, on the flipside if you have a real need for room then there are wallets, especially trifold wallets that have been designed just for that job. Some take the option of only having a money clip to hold their possessions however you will find that is the extreme end of the scale and would take some getting use to.

3. Where you are planning on carrying the wallet

wallets have been traditionally carried around in back pockets, as fashion changed so did the apparel that comes with it, wallets were no exception. Many manufactures took advantage of the tighter clothes on men generation by crafting slimmer front pocket wallets.

These wallets slide in and out of your front pocket with ease all whilst holding your most valuable possessions, looking great they can actually add to your fashion style.

4. The price you are willing to pay

Some take wallets for granted, and after placing their most valuable possessions they treat them poorly, do not maintain them and wonder why they break and come apart. A wallet is something that is going to last you a while if you use it correctly, it is going to project your fashion sense to others before you have even said a word.
