I got a taste of what it is like to have a purse. Got a Pacsafe bag for our Italy trip. It killed my lower back and neck when I loaded it up. New respect for DW's complaints! But traveling, one needs a lot of stuff on the streets. And in Italy there are those pickpockets to deal with.

Never heard of a binder clip as a wallet. Is this how your using it. While the guy drones on a bit, his technique is great.

I'm curious why anybody even carries loyalty cards. I've got a ton of them, but I just use my phone number instead. It works for every card I have, and saves me from having to haul all those cards/key ring dangles around. Actually, I've never used my AAA card either, although it is in my wallet. I just give them my name and address and they look it up.

Another option that I have heard of, but not used personally, is to store the barcodes in a smart phone app that is designed for this purpose.

The reader would scan the phone showing the barcode instead of the card itself.

Unfortunately, I've had very poor luck with this technique.
No problem at Starbucks, but the self-service scanner at the supermarket is unable to read the barcode on my phone, as is the one at the gas station pump.
Other retailers, always a crapshoot, failing more often than succeeding.

So I have to carry a bunch of these loyalty cards. Too many for my wallet, so I keep them in a little wallet I keep in the console of my car. When I get to a place that uses one (Costco for example), I just take it in the store with me.

Well this thread got me going. Tried a binder clip, worked ok for me, DW not so much. So I agreed to try a Dash, 10% for using COOLBEANS in the discount code and some are on sale. This is the one I choose: http://dashwallets.com/shop/dash-30-brown-saffiano
