100 Clever Ways to Carry Your Cash

From Hardshell Smartphone Wallets to Cash-Holding Belt Buckles

— March 26, 2013 — Fashion
There are probably a million ways to carry your cash, but here we have a solid 100 fantastic creations to choose from. This collection of fancy or frugal ways to carry cash ranges from strange to over-the-top, which ultimately ends up being a bunch of pretty random ways to carry cash and/or cards with you.

There are belt buckles that feature a secret compartment for stashing a little bit of cash and a number of smartphone cases that have built-in spots to carry cash. It's interesting that there are so many ways to carry your cash because it seems like such an everyday task that doesn't need to be improved upon. However, there are so many people who would say differently and that's rather apparent from all of these wacky and strange inventions.
