I admit it. I’m addicted to my iPhone. It’s like having a tiny computer in the palm of my hand. Breaking news, Facebook, Twitter, email – it’s all on this delightful little device that’s glued to my hand 24/7. It’s awesome.
So while I can’t go without my iPhone, I don’t mind ditching my purse (I hate that word, really). The only problem is I have to have my debit card, my ID and some cash to function like any normal adult. My wallet is too bulky and I don’t always have pockets, so I’m a slave to toting around stuff I don’t really want or need i.e. insurance cards, rewards cards, business cards.
I recently stumbled across a snazzy little iPhone cover that actually functions as a mini wallet too. I used it for the first time when I took a trip to St. Louis. I left my purse in the hotel and took the city by storm armed only with my iPhone. And one word came to mind: Freedom!
I wasn’t bogged down by a heavy purse. I never had to dig for my wallet, phone or keys. It was super easy to just run around with the essentials: iPhone, cash, keys, my debit card and ID. (Of course, the keys were stowed safely in my pocket.)
I was a little leery about how secure my ID and debit card would be, but they stayed safely snug inside the iPhone cover and were easy to remove when I needed them. I’ve tried to use other iPhone cases to store my debit card and ID, but the cases weren’t made for such use. It was cumbersome having to completely remove the phone from the case just to get to my cards. Not so with my new iPhone cover. It’s actually made for that very purpose. And I love it!
The only thing is, it doesn’t come in polka dots -– only in colors white, black, pink and teal. In addition, the price is a little steep ($39.99), but with its awesome functionality, I can justify the cost.
Because of this new iPhone cover, I don’t know if I’ll ever carry a purse again. Freedom! :)
