I see my next gadget purchase, and it’s name is BookBook for iPhone. The short description from the Twelve South site:
BookBook for iPhone is a wallet and iPhone case rolled into one pocket-sized, vintage book. Open this beautifully designed leather book and you will see a wallet on the left and a slot for your iPhone 4 on the right. Trade your wallet for this handsome little book and you’ll have one less thing in your pocket or purse when you walk out the door. And, as long as you remember your phone, you’ll never forget your wallet again.
April uses a similar iPhone/wallet case from Michael Kors, but that’s, uhm, a little flashy for my tastes. I can’t really see myself carrying around a gold designer clutch.
However, I can see myself using the BookBook for iPhone. It would require cleaning out my wallet and carrying around less cards and cash, which is not a bad thing.
If only it were my birthday coming up… I don’t think I can wait 6 months to have someone buy it for me as a gift!

Nice! But it fits too few cards. my regular wallet started life as a leather two-sided business card case. Its stretched to 10 cards, and some business cards…
There’s the challenge, to get yourself down to just the bare essentials: driver’s license, 2 cards, and a $20 bill. Maybe toss in a business card or two. Anything more than that, do you need to be carrying on your person all the time?
At least, that’s what I tell myself when I look at something like this. My current wallet has way more in it than I need on a daily basis.
