Checkbook Wallets and Clutches

Updated on March 27, 2013

Quest for the perfect wallet

I prefer a wallet that is small enough to stash in my purse, but has room for all the essentials so it can be carried as a clutch. A clutch style checkbook wallet with room for credit cards, cash, coins, ID and ideally a zippered change pocket.

You would think finding a wallet like this would be easy, but many of the good ones on the market are missing a key element.

On this page you find a selection of clutch style wallets to meet your needs.

Hardcase Framed Checkbook Wallet Clutch - This is the style my old favorite wallet was in

These are great, because the hard frame keeps the case closed all the way around, ensuring nothing will slip out by accident. The only draw back is the inside zippered pocket is difficult to fish items out of.
