Use A Credit Card Wallet To Manage Your Debt

Posted by Nick Niesen on October 29th, 2010

What is a credit card wallet? Well a credit card wallet is a separate wallet that you can use to put your credit card in. They are especially useful if you have more than one credit card.

What usually happens is this. You to the mall to buy something specific or even just go window shopping. However once you get there you see lots of goodies at "special prices" and since you have your credit card with you, you start spending. The problem that most people who own credit cards have is this. They find it difficult to resist temptation, which is exactly what the store owners want. Because the more you buy the more profit they make. They don't care whether you buy with a credit card or whether you'll be able to repay the money you spend.

So the onus is on you to control your spending, no matter how tempting something it may seem. If you are unable to, then a credit card wallet may be your answer.

If you have a credit card wallet, you don't have to take your credit card with you wherever you go. This will help you if you are an impulsive spender who can't resist "special offers" and have to spend all the time. Whenever you are faced with these neon signs that say "Buy Now" you will be safe in the knowledge that no matter how much you want to, you don't have the means. Because remember, your credit card is safely at home.

We are better able to take sound and logical decisions when we are calm and are not put under pressure to buy something within a specific period of time. By having your credit card in a separate wallet, you cannot take it along accidentally, e.g. because you need the other things that are in the wallet. That means in order for you to take your credit card wallet with you, you must make a conscious decision without any pressure in the comfort of your home.

Many people buy things they don't need with credit cards and regret it afterwards. This is because they are always carrying their credit cards in one wallet with everything else.

By putting your cards in a separate credit card wallet, you are able to make better choices. You can choose when to take it and when not to take it. And by doing this you save money in the process, because it prevents you from buying things you otherwise might have bought. It is therefore something that I think every person should consider having, especially if you have a problem saying no!
