Combining Your Wallet and Hipster PDA with the Moleskine Memo Pocket

As previously mentioned, my lovely wife bought a Moleskine Memo Pocket for me for Christmas. After carrying it around in my non-wallet back pocket for about a week, I started to get a little bothered by how cumbersome it was, especially given that the particular pants pocket carrying the Moleskine is normally vacant. I was a little annoyed that it was looking like my new productivity pr0n would go largely unused due to lack of portability. Then, an epiphany…

After looking at my wallet and considering the large amount of superfluous stuff in it, I realized that I could probably fit the necessary wallet contents into the two spare pockets of the Moleskine. It fits nicely into my wallet pocket and isn’t really any bigger than my previous wallet. The best part is, I’m now able to keep my hipster on me and ready without having to change my “stuff to carry at all times” list. Now my wallet is just slightly bigger (and more valuable).

For those interested, a quick run-down of the contents of each pocket (6 total, starting with the front):

  • Blank Index Cards (so they’re the most accessible)
  • To-Be-Processed
  • Next Action Lists
  • Agendas
  • Frequently-Used Wallet Stuff (cash, credit cards, etc.)
  • Less-Frequently-Used Wallet Stuff (receipts, other card-like things).

Give it a try, the Moleskine makes a damn fine wallet+hipster!
