My goal was to have a wallet on a string that would also hold my cell phone. For those times when I don't want to lug my gramma purse that holds bandaids, Dum Dum lollipops (just the right size for a bribe or reward!), bug repellent, cosmetics, wet wipes, spare diaper, nail file, tooth floss, Alleve (for those pesky knees), matches, small flashlight, tissues, gum, bottle of water, etc.
And at Nordstrom Rack I found the answer! Twelve slots for cards, two slots for bills, a bit of room in between. Handy spot on the outside for the iPhone. And a wristlet. I had no idea they cost so much since I usually buy my accessories at Target or Walmart. But I needed something other than plastic or nylon. I had been looking a few weeks ago and lamenting to my kidlet about paying $60. She scoffed and told me that was a good deal for the Coach wallet I was eyeing. Of course, today it was long gone.
The Marc Jacobs black and grey leather tote with hot pink handles took my breath away.
