Advantages of Slim Wallets in Chicago

Recently I realised that many people in Chicago’s streets posses a slim wallet (or call it thin, card holder or similar wallet). I actually realised that when I was sitting in my favourite bar and obverved the other people a bit.

I simply couldn’t resist thinking about the reasons why someone would opt for such a wallet.



Slimming down your wallet is never an easy task. Your wallet is full of things you need when travelling or leaving home and slimming it down looks like a hectic task. Well it should not be forgotten that wallets are meant to be wallets not cabinets to be filled in with things that come in handy. It is important that our wallets be slim, handy, and easy to use. There are certain advantages to using slim wallets or slimming down your wallets.

It is a relief for your lower back, our spinal cord is the center bone of our body and if we sit with a bulky wallet on a hard surface pressure is exerted on our spinal cord that results in crucial back pain that creates a lot of health issues in your old age.
