Travel Tip of the Day: Save your frequent flyer miles or points for international and high-value airline or hotel awards. Never cash in miles or points for a flight costing less than $300(I think $500 is better). Using points/miles for merchandise, lounge access, hotel stays, or similar is just throwing your money away. Also, be sure to keep up with expiration dates—you don’t want to lose your miles/points!
Over the past year, I’ve been adding to my Big Skinny Wallet collection. I highly recommend this most efficient organizer for your pocket or purse. Before my Skinny Wallet, I used the “lost and found” purse–always losing and finding things in my bag. Sometimes a year later–oh I was wondering where that lipstick or those Starbucks gift cards or
that bra went?!
Big Skinny is not a designer product like Coach, Kate Spade, Chanel, or Gucci so if you need a label–this is not for you. Perhaps in the future, Big Skinny will have designer collections. Just a thought! Although it is not a fancy designer label, there are so many great reasons to purchase such a high quality, useful, and not expensive item!
This is my Leather Panther Clutch. This item is great for everyday use and for someone who has a lot of cards, cash, and receipts. I have all my important stuff at my finger tips. No fishing through cards or a bag to find what I need!
I find my elegant space saver Leather Panther Clutch durable and practical. I love the way it feels in my hand and it looks classy!
I started my Big Skinny journey with this passport wallet in a red color. I’m so glad I picked the red color because it is super easy to spot. Everything makes sense about it and it is everything I expect from a passport wallet. As a jetsetter with many credit/identification cards/rewards/membership cards, I find it difficult to find a wallet with lots of storage with a sleek design. It’s very important to be able to place your passports in and out of your bag efficiently as well as keep them safe and close to you.
All of the Big Skinny products are machine washable and dry out in about 20 minutes. This makes cleaning a dirty–filled with germs–wallet so easy to clean!
The slim design of all of Big Skinny products are so much skinnier than regular wallets. Tri-fold and bi-fold wallets fit perfectly in a pant pocket or small purse. Big Skinny Wallets truly don’t stretch out like other leather or vinyl wallets. Also, I really like how there are many features and styles. Big Skinny does not just offer one look, design, or wallet. Consumers can look through their website and find all sorts of different wallet organizers
One drawback is the logo on front on Big Skinny. It doesn’t really bother me, but some consumers may find it kind of cheesy.

I recently purchased the Cheshire Convertible Bag for traveling. Bringing back fanny packs!
I’ll let you know how it works out on my next trip. I’m pretty excited about it! Happy Travels!
