Do Swiss people have small wallets or do I just have too much money?

I cannot seem to find a wallet big enough for all my cash.

Re: Do Swiss people have small wallets or do I just have too much money?

well, keep your money in the bank and carry a credit card. simples. Something similar, however, is somewhat complicated with the parts discussed in that other thread.

Re: Do Swiss people have small wallets or do I just have too much money?

Modern photocopiers can reduce the size as well as enlarge. Photocopy all your money and shrink it all down to half the size. Give the original notes to me; I have a large wallet and am happy to help out a forum member in need.

Re: Do Swiss people have small wallets or do I just have too much money?

My American wallet is about to bust apart. I really want one that I can put the 1000 notes into without having to fold them up and tuck them into the corners. I recently had a wad of 200s that I couldn't fit neatly into my wallet, neither, just because they're too long, and I had so bloody many of them. They're just easier to spend at McDonalds than a 1000 note. Have you ever tried to break a 1000? Good lord. It makes breaking a $100 in the US look like child's play.

*woe is me*

That's why you go shopping with your woman.
Women's handbags are usually a bottomless pit. Honest, you can even fit a 747 in there.

Warning : Be prepared to spend hours looking for stuff once its in there.

on a more serious note, I also find this a bit annoying as the bigger bills i end up folding into weird shapes to get them to fit.

And that would attract all the ladies, depending on which pocket you choose, but still

Step 1: walk to Globus (CHF 1'000 notes not accepted at ticket machines)
Step 2: buy 5 kgs of fillet steak
Step 3: phone your mates and ask them yound for a barbie
Step 4: get a cab home (make sure there is enough money left for that)

Done!

Re: Do Swiss people have small wallets or do I just have too much money?

You could try wearing a K-cup bra (see recent bra thread on where to purchase) and stuffing the notes in there which would confound thieves AND possibly get you a free pint or two at the pub

That, or do what I became very spoiled with up north - almost never using cash and instead doing everything with the bank card. Easy to track purchases and, most importantly, no annoying coins filling up my pockets.
