How To Use A Money Clip

Men, are you tired of carrying a big bulky wallet around and have you been wanting to try a money clip, but are not exactly sure of how to use a money clip? You know a money clip could do you some good because it is small, compact, lightweight and it can hold your money in place. You just want to make sure your money isn't falling out of the clip all over the place and that you don't take an extremely long time to locate one bill. Although money clips appear easy to use, if not used correctly they can be a nuisance and possibly even embarrassing.

  1. Arrange money properly. Place the biggest bills toward the bottom facing down, so that the smallest bills will be placed on the outside, prior to folding.  Fold everything neatly in half in a stack so that the larger bills are showing on the outside once folded.
  2. Place the folded stack into your money clip. The folded side should go first into the clip. The stack should not be stretched, but should be held securely and tightly. If you find that you have too many bills in your clip, remove a few bills at a time until you can easily slide the money in the clip while it is held securely in place.
  3. Place any additional cards into your money clip. To clip your credit cards, driver's license, and other IDs, slide them between the folded bills. This will keep them securely in place, while keeping them out of sight for your own protection.
  4. To take money out of the money clip you have two choices. First, take the entire wad of money out of the clip and access the bill you need to use. Put the remaining bills back into the clip when you are done. Secondly, just pull out the needed bill from the money clip without taking out the whole stack. Remember your smaller bills are in the middle of the fold and can be easily pulled out.
