It is a wonder the amount of excess we allow in our wallets. Of course, those store cards and receipts are very rarely called upon. We know this but do not take action. We accept the bulge and piously carry it everywhere.
The Realist's Wallet has space only for a cash card, an Oyster card (for travel), and some notes. We will find that we are not hindered by this small act of frugality.
The wallet is made of a few pieces of leather that are hand stitched with bright thread. Detailing is simple and robust. It is just bigger than a card and does not open up. Notes are slid and hidden into the central compartment.
