Yeah, it's kinda crazy inside my purse with all that I carry around.:shame: I hardly ever write checks that's why I want just a checkbook cover. But since the continental has slot pockets - I'm using that to hold all my reward/point type cards and gift cards, etc. in addition to my checks. UGH! Good thing my bag is big enough - lol.That's good; glad I helped. The continental with your french wallet? That DOES put a strain on your shoulder. =/ LOL.
