Wallet change

As I've been trying to figure out what's going to happen with cash, just as I did when I was trying to figure out what was going on with discs (CD, DVD, Blu-Ray, etc.) vs. downloadable media, I'm going to be experimenting with doing what apparently everyone else is doing already, which is walking around largely without folding paper and metal plugs. I ordered one of the Speck phone card cases, in the service of this exercise, and while I was at it, I downsized my wallet, since my current phone no longer fits into the pocket (well, not functionally for using the wallet, anyway) of the wallet.

Speck hasn't arrived yet, but the Big Skinny Taxicab wallet has. (Why are they called that? Anyone know?)

Before and after photos. I removed two receipts from today (dentist credit card slip and the cash receipt from the liquor store where I bought two very nice bottles after dropping off about 50 empty bottles -- none of them liquor -- in the redemption center. The redemption money didn't even cover 1% [eta: I can't do math when I'm sober. Bad sign! Did cover more than 1%. More than 2%, actually.] of the cost of what I bought and I am Very Okay with that. I haven't had Basil Hayden in a while, and the Anejo looks yummy. I also removed the stamps, and one souvenir smashed penny.
