Sizable Wallets

My love for big purses creates a challenge when it comes to finding my wallet. I realize that if I have a huge bag, I probably need to have a good sized wallet that I can easily find and grab. Otherwise, it takes me a good 5 minutes to fish around my seemingly bottomless bag to find my wallet when I need it.

Do you find yourself taking too long to pull out your wallet because it gets lost in the mix of your large purse?

Check out some of these easy-to-find wallets:

Hey BGG
Love love love the coach wallet. The design on the inside is just adorable. I like the shoes that have the same pattern also.
I have a pretty large wallet so the one that I am currently carrying does not get lost, but when I switch over to my smaller wallets, yes they do get lost in the shuffle.

honey, i never have a small wallet because my bags are ALWAYS huge...and in the event that i have a clutch, i just take out the license, some plastic, some cash, some gum and lip gloss.

These are lovely and can be great on he go as a litle clutch.

BGG, you're right trying to find the wallet in a big purse is more than a challenge. I love the Coach but wow, high on the price for such a small thing. Oh! Remember never give a wallet without any money inside.

I love wallets, they are a weakness like shoes and purses :)

YES I endure the same problem w/ fishing around for my wallet and I have a good medium sized one. I change my bags pretty often though and a big wallet may not work in a smaller bag. I like the Juicy Couture one though!

i love it that these wallets are the size of most purses!! i was without a wallet for a long time for weight reasons but the money clip situation was getting too messy and unorganized. i've committed to a small leather wallet tht i got a street fair.

I love them all, I only wish I could afford to get them all!

I like the Juicy but it's so not in my price range for a wallet.

justme said...

i loce that juicy wallet too. i am busting out of my wallet. i need a LARGE durable one

I have the opposite problem. I love big wallets, which sometimes double as a clutch on the go (you can fit some gloss in there and maybe an iPhone!).
But I have trouble finding a bag that's cute, big enough to fit the wallet and all my other crap, yet not too unwieldy or clown-like.

i might have to keep this post in mind as a present for my wife

Now how you knew I needed a new wallet? My beautiful Coach is gettin' all scratched up. I am sooo diggin' the Juicy one.

I have a big beastly wallet. No name, but good leather though. My mom got it for me out of town somewhere. It's lovely and my guys tease me when I pull it out.

They're like you MUST have a lot of money in a big wallet like that. I'm like no money... just money remnants i.e. lots of receipts.

I will love to find that old school Coach wallet, that was so popular back in the day! BGG, please help me find it!!!

Brown Girl Gumbo said...

@Tawanna - I remember those old school Coach wallets that everybody had in high school! LOL!!

I'm not sure if they still make those, but I'll look into it!

K-Bear said...

OMG! I have been seriously thinking of ditching my huge purse for a smaller one. I have the hardest time finding my stuff. A larger wallet might do the trick! If not, I might be forced to go to a clutch. The frustration is just too much! Thanks, BGG!

I love my big wallet! It resembles the one from forever21, but has a satiny cover w/a paisley print. It is big enough not to get lost in my purse, but quite slim, it is awesome.

I am a wallet junkie. I have at least 10. I just have to learn to switch at night. I'm always forgetting something! Love the Coach Legacy Stripe. That's my next one!
