Womens Wallets - How Old Is Your Wallet?

Updated on July 6, 2017

Is It Time For A New Wallet?

Are you carrying around an old worn out wallet in your handbag or purse? Some people keep the same wallet for years. As long as it serves the purpose and does the job, it doesn't matter how old the wallet is or what it looks like.

It may have been a gift from someone special and holds sentimental value. It could also be a wallet that you just had to have be it a name brand or a rather expensive luxury wallet that you were eyeing for months.

On the other hand you may think it is time to exchange that old weathered wallet for something shiny and new for yourself. You may also want to consider purchasing a wallet for a family or friend when it is time for gift giving. Wallets make lovely gifts for birthdays and at Christmas time.

The first thing to take in consideration is the style of wallet that you are in the market for. There are numerous styles but the most popular are the clutch or check book wallet, bifold and trifold wallets. The decision to the type of wallet you purchase depends on what you consider necessary to keep in a wallet.

When was the last time you went through your wallet and condensed it of useless material? If you have been using the same wallet for a lengthy period of time, you will find that it might be over stuffed with items no longer needed such as receipts, old business cards and other odd bits of folded papers with phone numbers or notes that you may have stashed away and forgotten about.

Once you have decided what size of wallet you need, next is the type of material that you favor, either a fine leather or a synthetic material. There are great selections for whatever wallet you decide to purchase.

Leather Wallets

You can't go wrong when you are choosing a leather wallet and one benefit is that it takes a long time for genuine leather to wear out. The styles and color choices available range from plain and simple to plush and luxurious with fine detailing.

Fashion designer Tory Burch offers the sophisticated Black Leather Gold Logo Wallet. Zip around style, with eight card slots, with a zip coin compartment and four full length bill compartments.

Kenneth Cole also manufactures genuine soft and supple leather and faux leather wallets. The cranberry Textured Metallic Tri-fold Wallet Accordion Style Clutch Wallet is gorgeous.

      It was funny that you wrote about exactly what I have. A worn out wallet that serves it's purpose and my daughter gave it to me and will know if I get rid of it. I also like because it has a lot of zipper sections. I enjoyed reading this.

      Thanks for the ideas, gypsy48. I'm always on the lookout for the perfect wallet - one that doesn't weigh too much, doesn't take up too much space in a purse and is well organized. I'll look at some of the wallets that you suggest.

      Funny because I change my wallet every year depending on my lucky color for the particular year, which I get from the Chinese horoscope guide. Silly me but I think it's fun!

      I enjoyed your hub though. Thanks.

      Good article. Like Sally, I've been using my wallet far past its prime. I do need a new one. Thanks for presenting some nice style to consider. Maybe a new one will help me kick the habit of using it as mini filing cabinet. :-)

      You are right -- I have been using the same wallet for years. A gift from my sister. You show some very nice ones though. I wrote a hub recently - What's in your wallet? Meant to be funny and practical.
