Outstanding video! I love that pen!

I keep mine relatively simple and wallet like:

- Cash in the back
- Essential cards (drivers license, credit cards, etc.) in the middle
- Assorted "quick grab" items in the front: change, my cleaning cloth for my iPhone/glasses, and the mandatory "buy 8 get one free" coffee cards for the local shops. :)

Oh, I also keep a ukulele pick stashed in there... just in case!

Hi:
Just got it. I had my ID cards near the front clear side. It has two curved dividers which makes it easy to separate and pull out simply. I had cash in section 2; and receipts in section 3 with larger denomination cash bills. It was truly easy to do one-handed opening and pulling out...and remarkably nothing falls out even if it is kinda hanging to the side!
And Yeki: I must have bought the last Plum..:(

I've got my set up as follows;
In the front I have my quick access stuff (DL, time card, check card, and Student ID.)
In the middle I keep the cash
At the back are the credit cards (bad), reciepts, and stuff that only resides in my wallet from time to time like my S.S.N. card

I really like the privacy this wallet offers. You can't see any money at all which is nice. My last wallet was the money clip/billfold style and I flashed my bankroll every time I needed something out of my wallet. Made for some uncomfortable moments.

1st divider > DL, voter registration, Medicare card

2nd divider > Credit and debit cards

3rd divider > $$$$

Also, I have my clear organizer wallet on a lanyard
attached to an O ring in my cafe bag, while I have
a second wallet that I carry with a little money that
I'm willing to easily give up in case I get mugged.

Our babysitter has not absconded with my wallet (after less than 24 hours in the house); use as follows:
Front: membership cards (zoo, museums, library)
Middle: cash
Back: receipts

She loves that it clips to the bag and she does not have to worry about losing the cards or taking them home over the weekend.

A mugger's wallet! I've thought about carrying one of those. The TB wallet would make it more believable, since it's an unusual design. Clever.

I carry all my important stuff in my Clear Organizer
Wallet, again with a lanyard attached to my cafe bag's
o-ring.

My mugger's wallet (http://www.dynomighty.com/product_detail.php?Air_Mail_Mighty_Wallet%E2%84%A2&d=mighty+wallets%2F002-DY-400) resides in my cafe bag's front
pocket and is the wallet that I carry a few $$$$ to
get me through the day and the wallet I use the
most. So, the name of the game is plan ahead!

I learned this travel tip many years ago.

With respect to international travel, I believe the TB
small pouch with dividers like the Clear Organizer
Wallet would make an excellent travel wallet due to
the different size of currencies you often need to
carry while traveling.:D

I've been using mine to protect my ipod nano when I travel.

Front section: ear buds curled up
Middle section: ipod nano (this way the screen is protected)
back section: usb cord to connect to the laptop

ETA: I have an older, short/squat nano

I've used my organiser wallet twice for special purposes:

1. Carrying my pearls while travelling. They were nicely protected between the two soft divider layers.

2. (Just this morning!) Carrying the remote control for my hearing aids in the rain. I need to keep this on me for now (they're a new experimental hearing aids) but I didn't want it getting wet in the torrential downpour we had this morning. Again, between the soft divider layers it was perfectly protected.

It's too large for me to use it as a wallet. I use a small credit card holder as a wallet.

my new wallet arrived today! i ordered the navy (so no clear front), and i love it. this is the first time i've seen navy in person, and it's gorgeous.

right now i have my driver's license and visa card in front, my co-op card and punch cards (coffee shops, etc.) in the middle, and other credit cards/gift cards (e.g., gap) in the back. it's got such a slim profile compared to the wallet i just took this stuff out of; it's fantastic!

i almost never carry cash, but if/when i do, it will tuck in easily.

this is my very first pouch, and i'm suddenly finding myself wondering which ones to buy so that i can file my camera, my iPhone, and my lip balm collection away into pouches as well. :)

I LOVE pouches and organizer bags. My boss jokes about how I have a pouch for everything. I just cleaned out my organizer wallet, so I have coffee punch cards in the front; credit, debit, ID, and library cards in the middle; and cash in the back. I've ordered a mini padded for my nano because it's clear it will be the perfect size.

Hi bluedawg,

Your iPhone will fit into either a small or mini organizer pouch. Take a look at this photo (http://www.tombihn.com/blog/node/338) from the blog. I prefer to keep my iPod Touch in a small size pouch (the same color as the one in the blog picture -- periwinkle was one of the limited edition colors (http://www.tombihn.com/blog/node/279) available two years ago). If you keep earbuds attached, or also store a soft cleaning cloth it's easier to take the iPod in and out of the small pouch. Some small digital cameras will fit in the mini pouch. Check the Clear organizer pouch (http://www.tombihn.com/page/001/PROD/ACC/TB0319) pictures to get an impression of relative size. View d of the Cordura organizer pouch (http://www.tombihn.com/page/001/PROD/ACC/TB0317) product page shows the relative sizes of the mini, small, and medium pouches. The large pouch is shown in an Imago in this post (http://forums.tombihn.com/showthread.php?p=11888#post=11888)

thanks, moriond, you are a fantastic enabler! :) i was wondering about the mini vs. small for my iPhone, and the blog post you linked to was a great help. i have a silicone (i guess) case on my iPhone, so i'm thinking a small pouch might be an easier fit for me, so i don't have to wiggle it around too much. heh.

looking at the clear pouch pictures, i really like the idea of a medium pouch for my power supply. the snake charmer seems like it would be a bit large for my needs, but that medium pouch seems perfect!

i think i might be able to squeeze my camera into a mini... i guess the only solution is to buy a few different sizes and start playing! thanks again for the help, it is much appreciated.

oh, (not)clear organizer wallet, look what you've started!

Between Maverick, Moriond and myself every new TB forum member is in trouble.

I swear by my Small Cork Pouch for my cell phone, ever since I got it, my significant other can always find my phone in a second.

He probably needs a pouch for his....mmmmmmm. Good excuse for a new order :)

I will vouch for this one. I've been in trouble ever since I joined the forum. Did I mention my latest order just shipped this afternoon???

Just ordered a second wallet in kiwi for organizing small stuff. Use my plum wallet for my travel wallet - love that it clips to whatever bag I'm using. Great size for travel.

Anyone else have a not-regular-use for the Clear Organizer Wallet?

I don't think this is super non regular. I house my Hemp Wallet for my usual wallet type cards (ID, debit, insurance) , and an Azalea Wallet for membership cards (library, gym, stores), my MG is my cash and coin "wallet".

I put 2nd gen ipod nano between the two dividers for protection & my ear buds behind the last divider.

I've been using my clear organizer wallet exclusively for over two years. Here's what's in it:

Front clear pocket - drivers license, health insurance cards, PBA card

Middle pocket - cash

Back pocket - credit cards, a few business cards, and receipts

This system has worked really well over the last few years, and I can't see myself ever using another wallet!

I love those Mighty Wallets, but I thought one of their big selling points is that they don't look like wallets. If I'm looking to make a mugger's wallet, I wonder if maybe I should use a ratty old one that actually was used as a wallet, that looks like a wallet?

I have been carrying my Nordic COW for some time now and love it. However, I do wish that there was a pouch or wallet available in a slightly smaller size (like the Chums wallet above). Something sized just a bit larger than a credit card.

I ditched my old faithful leather wallet since I got my ultrasuede COW. Organized same as @Nukedriver's, but I keep the cash in the back pocket and the cc/receipts in the middle pocket.

Hmm, I think I've been using mine for just as long too! As someone here once said, time flies when you're having fun (with TB products).

Stumbled on the Waterfield Micro Wallet recently and it fits my needs perfectly.

+1 for the Waterfield Micro Wallet. Perfect size and is tough as nails.
