The 10 Best Money Clips Let You Ditch Your Bulky Wallet
Carrying around wads of cash fastened together with a money clip can seem somewhat outdated in this digitized age, but it’s perhaps the most dependable form of commerce. If apps like Apple Pay are your go-to, for example, you’re at the mercy of your phone’s battery. Plastic, whether a debit or credit card, can get denied for a number of reasons. But walking out the door with a stack of Benjamins, Lincolns, or Washingtons is tangible; you know you have it and can pay a sum in case there’s nothing else on the table—literally.
Sure, wallets perform the same function, but they carry more items than dollar bills. Maybe you don’t want to carry anything else. Maybe you want to separate your cash from your credit. Maybe you want to stay off the grid altogether. Maybe you’re a sucker for nostalgia. Or maybe you want to look like a baller, and detach some real-life moola when that hefty check arrives after dinner. There are a number of reasons to invest in a money clip, but not all clips are the same. The best of ’em will flatten your dollars, secure them in place, and, of course, look snazzy. And we have 10 just ready and waiting , funnily enough, to be purchased online with a bank card or app. Get one now, and flash your loaf later.
