It took me years to realize that I didn’t have to hold onto every single receipt and shove it into my wallet. And with that realization came the obsession with minimalist wallets. Give me a handful of card slots and a place to store some paper essentials (cash, coffee punch card, health insurance, you know) and I’m golden. We’ve taken the liberty of rounding up some of the best-reviewed and best-selling minimal wallets to keep your things safe while cutting down on your accessories footprint.
