Actual wallet that can hold 3x5 cards?
My husband is really interested in a wallet like the Levenger International Briefcase without the price tag. He likes using 3x5 cards but the fact that he never has them on him when needed is a system leak. He isn't willing to carry just a note taker wallet because he wants something that will replace his actual wallet since he doesn't want to be carrying even more than he does anyway.
All he carries in his wallet are obviously driver's license, medical card, couple cards, & a little cash, so it seems like we should be able to find something that would hold all that and a few 3x5 cards without being too bulky. He isn't married to the cards being 3x5 either (though that is the size he is used to using) if they'd need to be smaller to fit something that would work and also be less expensive.
He doesn't want the kind that you have to buy replacement paper pads for, just the kind that holds cards. I think the international briefcase would be perfect, but he has absolutely refused to spend $59. Any nice knock offs out there?
Thanks for the suggestions
I agree, but there isn't really anything I can do about it if he doesn't agree.

I have seen knock-offs this time of year in local office supply stores for much less.... With the 3x5 pocket briefcase and wallet, there is the issue of size: even the smallest slim pocket briefcase fills a shirt pocket and many pants pockets. If one habitually carries a wallet in a suit coat pocket, it's less of an issue.
We are looking into seeing whether he'd take notes on blank business cards, but he just feels they are too small. I am not sure what the answer is going to be for us.
Thanks for the passport wallet idea. We're looking into those but so far what we are finding are rather large.
I think those jotters are too small for my husband to also use it to replace his wallet, but I have been wanting something similar for me to put in my purse.
That link said the item was no longer available in store and I wasn't able to order it online :(
Sorry I don't know how to multi quote, but I do appreciate all your time in replying.
Get the International Pocket Briefcase by Levenger - worth every penny
Get the International Pocket Briefcase by Levenger. I put off getting one because of the price, but eventually bit-the-bullet and bought it. I've never looked back. There is nothing easier to jot notes down on than 3x5 cards; and the international pocket briefcase by Levenger can hold a good stack of them. I've been very pleased with it. If your husband jots his ideas on both 3x5 cards and 8x11 paper (as I do), have him check out my David Allen folder "hack" for creating the Perfect Portable Inbox for both paper types.
