One of the ways I’ve simplified the things that I own has been focusing on items that have more than one use. Pieces of clothing, small appliances, and my personal fave: my wallet - purse - clutch. A true multipurpose wallet. I kind of obsess and agonize over decisions when making purchases, so spent a bunch of time researching before buying this wallet. I think it’s because I tend to use and keep things forever and I also wanted it to work with my capsule wardrobe.

I actually have this wallet in black and grey to switch up for each season, too. I’ve had it for a couple years now and love, love, love it. It’s so versatile and has been holding up very well (I’m not the gentlest on my stuff always, plus four kids). It has a zip pocket for coins and slip pocket on the outside, card slots, lots of space inside. And transforms from purse to clutch. Perfect for on the go when I don’t need to carry much for the kids or easy to throw in a bigger purse if I do! I love, love, love finding versatile pieces like this. It also has a removable longer purse strap and a wristlet when it’s a clutch. And it even has space for a little notepad, lipchap, my phone, and a pen. It’s a win all around for me.

Three reasons to switch to a multipurpose wallet like mine?

  1. You may be able to simplify your purse and wallet collection like I did. Right now I have a large purse bag thing and my two wallets like these ones, that’s it.
  2. You might get asked about it often and help people simplify their lives too. (at least that’s what happened to me ha!).
  3. You may save money. I had a phone wallet, coin purse, a few purses, and wallets before switching to this multipurpose wallet. It may end up saving you too.

Hi, I’m Kelly! I’m a mother of four children - three boys, one toddler girl - and our family lives on the beautiful east coast of Canada. I’m a past elementary teacher, turned stay at home, work at home mom eight years ago after I had my second child. I’ve found that the busier I’ve become and as my children age, that it’s become even more important to figure out what is most important to me and us as a family. Living a simpler lifestyle has helped us in so many ways in our home life - from better routines to faster tidying up times. It has been through my children that I have been inspired to learn how to effectively manage my time and to simplify in all areas of my home and life. I enjoy helping busy moms simplify home life by teaching flexible planning methods and skills. Enjoyed this blog and think it would be helpful to others? I'd love if you shared it. Thank you!
