Money Manager: The 15 Best Money Clips for Men

We tend to stuff our wallets with every card-shaped thing we’ve ever gotten. Every credit card you own, all of your health insurance cards, your local sandwich shop’s club card (you’re three lunches away from getting a free hoagie!)—the list goes on and on. This poor, overstretched piece of leather is bursting out of your pocket, and for no reason—you know you only really need one card, your ID, and a few bills, right?

It’s time to slim down and simplify things. We’re talking money clips. You might scoff at the idea of carrying a money clip—didn’t your grandfather carry one of those around?—but think about this: you’ll never have to fumble around with that gigantic wallet again. Check out our list of 15 favorites. You’ll thank us every time you ask for the check.
