18 new wallets to put the funny back in your money. By Christene Barberich & Piera Gelardi
It's been said that money can't buy happiness. But with the right wallet, we're willing to bet it can. Unlike that flimsy fold hidden in your back pocket (or that icky no-name leather variety), this new crop of cheerful bill collectors could almost make you forget your money woes. Artful, vibrant, and a little psychedelic, we think any of these wallets have the power to kick-start prosperity.
A stunner for summer, we're loving Tim Reed's clean and colorful Laser wallet ($51) almost as much as the slightly kooky Cassette wallet ($39) a single-compartment tote that's sure to give your cash flow a new tune. Read on for more ways to put the wonder back in your bread.
