I know from personal experience that an ordinary wallet can get pretty bulky really quickly. You put your money, credit cards, photos and receipts right in there, and pack it tightly to make it fit in your pocket. Anyone who has a wallet knows exactly what I am talking about, and it can get out of hand really fast. I bet there are a lot of people out there who have at some point thought there must be a better way to carry their cash with them. The funny thing is, until now, there hasn’t been any other optimized way. Sure, the old rubber band approach is of course an option, but it’s not very stylish. Nah, what we all need is the TGT (Tight) wallet. This new approach is reinventing the wallet as we know it.
This really clever idea comes from Jack Sutter and is one of those really inspiring stories that will have anyone want to become an inventor. As it usually happens, Jack got his idea when he saw his friend packing his cash and cards with a rubber band from a broccoli stem. The story that unfolds after that is both mesmerizing, tight and inspiring. In a matter of seconds, Jack takes you through the process that it took for him to create the first prototype product. Jack’s wallet approach is really reinventing the way we carry our money around.
But reinventing the wallet doesn’t come cheap, and that is why Jack has taken to Kickstarter in order to see if there is any interest for his product. I think the least Jack has to worry about is interest since his Kickstarter product page has become a sensation. The page has only been up for 2 days, and the TGT wallet has already managed to rake in $52,477 (at the time I’m writing this). That is more than double that of what he asked for. It’s an insane story, and one that I think we will see reinventing the wallet as we know it. I want one of these. I really do! I am definitely going to get one!
