This slim "essentials only" wallet is exactly what I've needed for years. I've always suffered from "wallet creep", whereby I have deemed ever-increasing numbers of non-essential items worthy of being my constant companions, fattening up my various wallets over the years, until I had finally reached a point where I might just as well start carrying a purse. Then came Ridge. In the transfer, I finally had to decide what things I REALLY needed to have constant instant access to, and...VOILA! It turned out I could live with just my driver's license and about ten credit cards, and a clip-full of cash. All the rest? Adios, my friends! Banished to a tray by the exit door. And here's something that never happened before, with my ever-fatter leather wallets: Last week a man behind me at the grocery store check-out asked where I got my "cool wallet." Not that I'm trying to impress anyone. I'm just glad that I'm no longer carting around this fat, sloppy mess of an old-fashioned wallet that I burdened myself with for years and years. I've now giving my son and son-in-law Ridges for Christmas!
