I haven’t carried cash for years, sucks because I love wallets and don’t use my larger ones as often as I’d like to.
I don’t really need to carry cards either (all stored on my phone) and can pay by Apple Pay so wallets could be obsolete but I still carry one daily, sometimes a full size and sometimes just a card case depending on my mood....
I sold off all my traditional wallets, except for a long leather coach wallet and my passport wallet. In fact, since I bought the passport wallet I don’t really need the long wallet anymore since I used it for travel! I have a card case and key pouch I use for all my cards/cash (which I rarely have anymore anyway). I mostly carry cash when I travel...who knows when that will happen again!!
I’ve not used a wallet in many years. I’ve been using my mono card case for months now, but use the key pouch for quick errands when not carrying a purse. I have a Rosalie coin purse that I don’t use but can’t part with
Interesting question! I personally prefer small wallets and key pouches. I like to keep my bags light. I'm in cali and so far no one has said they aren't accepting cash due to COVID. Tender Greens (eatery) stopped taking cash about a year ago.
I’ve been using just a card holder for about four years and even now when there’s a few wallets I really like, I just can’t bring myself to buy them knowing I’d put the exact same amount in it as what I have in my card holder already.
maybe we’ll see more wallets adapted to be sized to fit an iPhone/smartphone and cards, and less pockets for cash and coins.
I LOVE a full-size wallet, but for now I have just been using my key pouch. I actually took everything out of my full-size wallet and put the wallet away for the time being.
I have a particular handbag I carry when we go out now and the only things in it are my key pouch, hand sanitizer, my phone, a packet of Kleenex and a rosary that I put in a plastic bag.)
I have all my other things I normally carry in another purse, which I put on a shelf in my closet. Who knows when I will feel comfortable taking all that out again? There is a cosmetic pouch full of little items I like to have with me, a little pencil/pen pouch, my calendar, sun glasses and I normally take my head phones in my purse. I did put a very tiny wallet in this purse to hold all of my gift cards and I usually carry a little cash, but I doubt anybody will be accepting cash for awhile.
So for now, I barely have anything in the handbag I am actually using. It still feels so odd to me.
I've never been a big fan of wallets in general. I use small wristlets, mini pouchette and coin purses as my wallets. Ive toyed with the idea of moving to a card case. I was eyeballing a coin purse that had a few card slots and nylon for easy cleaning. I probably won't be getting anything soon to be honest. I do think that people will downsize their wallets in the future though. People will be carrying less cash more cards or using tap payments via apple pay and Samsung pay.
I use more cash than using my cards. At the beginning I exclusively used my debit card to get in and out of stores quickly. I’m back to using cash mostly again now but I’d love to have a small wallet or card case to use along with my full size wallet. I hope we see some new card case designs and small wallets this year.
I use an old Long wallet these days, I wipe down with chlorox wipe when I get home. It is great for holding all my cards, esp ID which they scan whenever we enter a building and store; sometimes we still need some emergency cash if the machines at the cashiers are down (happened yesterday) and most importantly my phone and a few alcohol wipes.
Before covid I used to have a lip balm in my long wallet.
