I’ve been carefully following your gear concepts and everyday carry ideas but can’t recall how you carry your “street cash”, or daily spending money. You seem to be partial to money clips (but not for cash) and card sleeves but never an actual wallet stuffed with cash. So how do you securely carry your cash around as EDC?–User 00366
The reason you’ve never seen or read about how I carry my street cash is because I rarely if ever put them in a wallet, card sleeve or even a money clip.
It may seem disorganized and counterintuitive but the way I carry cash is as loose bills, split into 2 pockets.
The first, primary and most used set of cash is placed in the same pocket as my card sleeve, my “money pocket” – nothing else goes in here. I like being able to flip out just my cash when needed, with each bill sequentially organized and freely organizable.
This is particularly useful when working with foreign currency to get a full view of the bill design, to verify the denominations – for smooth transactions.
The secondary set of cash is placed in a less accessible and therefore less used pocket. It’s just a few bills of higher denominations, for a back up.
This adds side security for loss and pickpocketing, as well as having the function of a “decoy wallet”.
