Do you suffer from a Costanza wallet?

I've got a leather bi-fold and it is about 2.25" thick. Not much money, mostly business cards and whatnot. Plus I'm a habitual receipt saver. I've got receipts for things I bought 3 years ago.

I suffered from this until I started using a money clip with space for a couple of credit cards...

Bifold, about 1" thick

Front pocket, always

Get a front pocket wallet with a money clip,limit your space and you are forced to not carry as much.

I had the big fatty wallet. Now I just carry a clip with id, CC, etc. Cash in front pocket. I have a bad back and the fatty wallet hurt my hip and back sitting on it.

Too thick sometimes. If I notice it when sitting down, its time to thin it out. I try to go through it at least weekly to get out check stubs, teller slips, notes ect.

I carry cash, LTC, work ID, DL, a couple of credit cards and bank card, spare vehicle door key, a few quarters.

I always remove it when driving long distance, it impinges on nerves in my hip.

Trifold < 1 inch thick
It has:
cash - (yeah right)
Check card
Firearms permit to purchase
NRA card
Insurance card

I alomst never put it in the back pocket anymore. I either carry it with the cell phone or stick it in a front pocket.

I have a leather bifold and it's thick. CC, bank cards, Krogers/Randalls cards, various cards to store (like every 10th ride on the carousel is free cards) and more.

Occasionally, there's a few dollars in there too if there's room.

I used to prefer a tri-fold until my IDs and cards got too unruly for it. Now I use a bifold (come to think of it I need a new one, thanks for the reminder).

I use a money clip that also holds credit cards and ID, and carry in my front pocket. My old man used to carry a thick wallett in his back pocket until it gave him back pain from sitting on it all the time. Now he also carries a money clip.

Half inch maybe, ID and Carry permit is all and a few pics. I carry cash on a money clip.

Took it out to measure just for you. About 7/8"

I'm very picky about my wallet. Has to be black leather, and has to be a triple fold top loader, with no plastic inserts or any of that crap. I have been using the same Polo one for about 6 years (goes to show that sometimes spending more is worth it). I do look now and again when I am at stores for a wallet that fits the bill, excuse the pun, and buy it for future use. I think I have two ready for when this one gives up the ghost...

About 1" thick. Leather and back pocket. Too small a frame to carry front pocket.
Credit Cards, Drivers License, Handgun License, Insurance Cards (me and 2 babies), VA Card, Business Cards and on rare occasion some cash.

Maybe 1/4". 4 cards, 2 IDs, and very rarely, cash.

Too thick. I have a bad habit of using mine as a filing cabinet. Somebody gives me a phone #, into my wallet it goes on a scrap of paper. My wallet is 25% wallet stuff, 75% scraps of paper.

About 1" thick.

Cash, credit/bank card, membership cards, "punch cards" for restaurants and crap, a few days worth of recipts, a couple of business cards, driver's license, medical insurance card, and a picture of my wife.

I try to clean it out every couple of months, and I dump all my recipts out every few days. Thanks for the reminder. It's getting a little thick.

Do what I do with little random bits of info: Type them up and print them out in small type. You'll get it all on just a few DL-sized sheets.

I carry one in each back pocket. Both are about one inch thick. Mostly full of stuff I need to go through and throw away.
