You know you had a good app spree when....

you end up buying this and using over your Louis Vuitton wallet you just bought a few months ago cause you need the extra credit card slots -_-;

 

11 slots for cards lol  

 

It has 9 slots (including the window) and 2 more slots behind the window flap.

I'm debating if I should spend another $600 on this wallet (just bought almost the same wallet with less slots etc for $500+ this July....

since I love how it feels and how sturdy it is (same design as mine this one just has more pockets, and a change/receipt area) but I should wait til I close on my house 100% first   (i'm not mr money bags I just believe in buying a good solid wallet, after I was replacing $50-100 wallets every year from being in my back pocket, noticed my dad's LV wallet has been in good shape in his back pocket for the last 20 years)

You know you don't have good credit when you go from a bulky wallet to a coach front pocket wallet with 4 slots. I did this.

Re: You know you had a good app spree when....

Nah, I've never had "good" credit. I've always just been a cash kinda guy until I realized I couldn't get a new car etc. So, I bought my Charger cash lol, saved some money on interest but drove a clunker for a year while I saved some extra money. I am a firm believer in quality though and I can agree with you there. It's like guys that buy screen printed football jerseys and complain when they start fading away. An extra $150 and that problem does not exist.

yea most my friends are like yea yea credit **bleep** before, now they realized I can get qualified for 0% car loans and they're paying 20% apr they're coming around. It sucks cause in America it's rough having bad credit, I had to pay deposits everywhere etc I was denied gas cards last year, and even secured cards.

Re: You know you had a good app spree when....

Yeah it's insane. I finally decided to grab a hold of my credit situation when I realized I could get a house with escrow for less than what I pay in rent every month up to $120,000. A $70,000 house is nicer than the apartment my family and I live in, but it's probably the most convenient location, steps from everything including my job. I got sick of it one day when a CA called me, then another around an hour later and then 20 minutes after that another. I snapped and took control, I just can't wait to break through to the 600's. I've never been there.

seriously though tohse cheapo wallets don't last in my back pocket for more than a few months without falling apart.... maybe i have a really boney ass I dunno. but this wallet feels really light and flimsy even tho kenneth cole is an ok brand name, the wallet is fine, but i love the stiffer feeling of the lv one I'm trying to replace. My Coach wallet before after 3 months there was already damage from normal wear and tear, it's been 4-5 months and my LV wallet could still be passed off as new. it all depends, but like I said earlier my dad's 20 year old LV wallet is still holding up strong. buy a cheap wallet every 3 months or use on for 10+ years?
