I would never have bought this for it’s full RRP but I was out shopping in the New Year and specifically looking for a new travel wallet for our upcoming trip (I am getting really excited now.. only a few weeks to go!) when I spotted this in TK Maxx. Now technically I believe it’s sold as an ‘organiser’ but what is a travel wallet if not a wallet for organising travel? Exactly! Yesterday I shared a super steal I bagged at Topshop and that may have been the cheapest item but this was definitely the best bargain. It was originally supposed to be £125 and I got it for…. DRUM ROLL PLEASE.. £24.99!
Amazing! It’s exactly what I was looking for, leather, sophisticated, big enough to fit all four passports in as and when necessary (we have a family trip coming up in March) and it has a zip so bits and bobs wont fall out in my bag.. pretty important when you consider the essentials you pack in a travel wallet! I’d seen different ones online that were okay but not quite right, the only ones I loved were way out of my price range (as this would have been in theory) so I’m really happy I found this.
Inside there are two big sections and one small pocket, I would have liked maybe a separate zipper compartment as my current wallet has one but that’s a small detail that I’m happy to do without for the quality of this. My previous wallet is about 7 years old and has served me well but it’s canvas and looking a little grubby now, it’s also a bright print which is great for finding in the depths of my bag but I wanted something a little more ‘grown up’ and short of losing this I can’t foresee having to ever buy another. It’s classic and functional! Some of you will be reading this thinking I’ve gone mad but you know when you’ve been looking for something for what feels like forever? I’ve had a picture in my mind and I can’t believe I found something that fits for a price I could afford.. My local TK Maxx often have Osprey goods in so if you’re interested I’d suggest you take a look. For those who want to see the closest thing on the official site here’s the link.
