Wallet surprise

August 29, 2011


When I was cleaning up my classroom before school began, I happened to find a brand-new wallet in one of the boxes. I have no idea where it came from, and I hope the person that is missing this wallet never figures out that I have it, because I love it!

I don’t have a picture of my old wallet. It was a folding-thing that was meant to only hold credit cards, but I had jammed so many receipts and dollars in it that it had stretched out. Twice at a store I had cards fall out of it.

So, to find this one seemed like it was just meant to be. It holds three cards on the back, my driver’s license (with my insurance card jammed behind it) in the front window, and has an open-space in the middle for a couple of bills. Perfect!

When I got home I looked up ‘Moneyclamp‘ on the internet, and it turns out that this wallet is part of a money-clip system that has a ‘new-and-improved’ money clip. It holds one dollar as easily as it holds twenty! The design pretty much looks like it’s based on a binder clip.

I’m not a money clip kind of person (girls usually aren’t), but if I had to pay for something really, really expensive – and had the funds – it would be super fun to pay with a big ol’ wad neatly clamped stack of bills.

    I like small wallets like that because I’m a front-pocket-wallet-carrier. But it’s hard to find them without money clips. I don’t like the clips because I carry my wallet in the same pocket as my phone and I need the wallet to lay flat.

    Also, your coffee mug is broken.

    I just found a $1.00 bill in my shirt this morning. Apparently it was in someone’s pocket & between the washer & the dryer it ended up in my sleeve. When I first felt something crinkly, I feared a bug….but Woo hoo…a dollar! I wish it would have been a $20.00.

    Oh, I am so happy you found my wallet. I thought I lost it for good. Hope my $50 is still in it.

    Is that broken coffee mug the one that previously had flowers planted in it? Flowers planted by a sweet preschooler or her mom or someone? The same flowers you anxiously watched die so you could use the mug? Is that the same mug? I’m not judging or anything. Just asking?
