My purse carrying days are a thing of the past. I throw my wallet into my diaper bag and go. Today, I’m cleaning out my wallet and taking you along for the ride! Weeeeee.
I purchased my old wallet, from Target of course, a few years back with the best intentions of paring down to something simple that would fit everything I needed, including my phone. At the time, I thought it fit all of my criteria: cute, small, and included a spot for my iPhone. Sadly, after I put a case on my phone, it didn’t fit in the wallet!
So, I went about juggling both separately and cramming as much random crap into the spot for the phone instead. I could barely shut it:
It irritated me. It was always such a mess.
I still like the idea of a wallet to keep in my diaper bag – but this time I upgraded to something bigger and made sure my phone, case and all, fit in along with everything else:
I bought this new wallet from Target too. Even though Target has lots of fun bright ones to choose from, most of them are a little young for me. I decided to stick with a simple brown one that goes with everything. My phone fits in the zippered side pocket perfectly.
Transferring everything over to the new wallet was also a chance to reevaluate what I was carrying around and organize. A fresh organized start always makes me feel better! Maybe when my diaper bag days are through, I might convert to a purse again or a cross body bag but for now, this is a great solution.
