Made of genuine, soft, high-grade leather, this black, custom-made wallet is suitable for both men and women. When you open the attractive, folding wallet, you'll find four separate full-length compartments for paper money, making it easy to differentiate between $1, $5, $10, and $20 bills. Furthermore, on the left are two snap-shut compartments for change, and On the right is another large snapped pocket for miscelaneous things like larger $50 or $100 bills, checks, receipts, a signature guide, or a slate and stylus. In the center of the wallet is a fold-out card organizer - which holds six credit cards or business cards. When folded, this wallet measures four inches square, and even boasts a transparent photo-ID holder in the front.
Directions for the Leather Organizer Wallet From Future Aids, The Braille Superstore.
Traditional wallets just never seem to have enough compartments and pockets for you to organize your money and credit cards the way you'd like to - do they? If you're like us, you're always trying to fold your paper money a million different ways - just so you can remember which bills are 5's and which are 10's. Well, those days are over!
Here are a few suggestions for how to get the most out of your new multi-pocket wallet. Of course, how you end up organizing your wallet is entirely up to you; these are just a few tips we've found to work particularly well - in our experience.
When you open up the wallet, you'll have four separate, full-length compartments for storing paper money. Putting the smallest denominations at the back and working your way forward is a good way to go - 1's in the very back, 5's in the next pocket, 10's in the third, and 20's in the fourth and final front pocket.
On the front-left side of the wallet are two pockets (held closed with snaps) for storing change. Sort small coins (pennies, nickels, and dimes) into the top pocket; and larger coins (quarters - and looneys and tooneys for Canadian shoppers) into the bottom one.
On the front-right is another, larger snap-shut pocket, which you can use for keeping track of any miscellaneous items, like checks, charge slips, a miniature slate and stylus, etc. Or, if you end up with any larger $50 or $100 bills, you can also fold them a certain way and tuck them into that all-in-one pocket.
In the very middle of the wallet is a credit card fold-out - six separate plastic windows for all your plastic, including credit, debit, ATM, and ID cards. A signature guide will also fit into one of these slots. For Braille readers, you can even use a standard Braille-writer or slate and stylus to add Braille to each card-holder - so you'll be able to figure out in a snap which card is which. (The card windows are made of plastic that's thin enough to be Brailled on - but thick enough to still be fairly sturdy. This prevents your having to add Braille labels directly onto your credit cards, which often fall off or interfeer with electronic scanning machines.)
Lastly, don't forget to place a piece of photo ID into the ID holder pocket on the outside of your wallet. And the next time a clerk asks you for picture ID to prove you're the legitimate cardholder when you're making a purchase, you can just close your wallet and flash your ID card - without even having to remove it from your wallet.
