Six Reasons to Buy a Metal Wallet for Men

Six Reasons to Buy a Metal Wallet for Men

Are you looking for a wallet to purchase? Well, gone are the days when people bought leather wallets. Metal wallets have been receiving lots of attention lately and for sound reasons too. Discussed below are some of the reasons why you should consider purchasing a metal wallet instead of a bi-fold leather wallet.

Safety

Do you know that pickpockets can scan your wallet with RFID devices, and then steal your identity in the blink of an eye? When using a leather wallet, you raise the odds of your identity being stolen as digital skimmers can scan it and bag your vital credit card information. However, with a metal wallet, you do not have to worry about your identity being stolen, as they are RFID protected. This means that criminals cannot run you by with a digital scanner and swipe your information.

Slim Design

Metal wallets for men come with a slim design so that they can be easily and comfortably carried around in the breast or back pockets. The wallets are also slim to make it harder for pickpockets to steal them from your front pocket.

Lightweight

Let us face it! Loaded leather wallets are heavy and can prove to be a task to carry around the whole day. On the flip side, metal wallets are made from materials like aluminum or titanium plates that are light to carry in your pocket all day. Gone are the heydays when you had to worry about feeling pulled down by your wallet. Carefully look at the metal wallets for men online, and you will come across those that are a featherweight.

Enhanced Look

Metal wallets for men look better than leather wallets. The key reason is that they help you to declutter and this is a plus if you are putting on skinny pants or jeans. You no longer have to worry about walking around with a bulky wallet that will ruin your look. That is nor all. Bulky wallets also have a long-term effect on your clothing as it ruins their shape. Get a metal wallet to look stylish.

Extend Card Life

When carrying a metal wallet in your front pocket, then you will extend the life of your credit cards. Most people are going for metal wallets, as they do not want to crush their cards by sitting on them and end spending cash getting new cards often. With a metal wallet, your credit cards will remain intact until they expire, as they will not be crushed.

Protect the Lower Back

When you carry lots of items in your bi-fold wallet, then you can trigger lower back issues. If you have been suffering from lower back problems and you place loads of items in your wallet, it is time to make a change. Sitting on an inclined surface for several hours every day can take a serious toll on your lower back. Why not buy a slim metal wallet designed for the front or back pocket and save your lower back?…

Traveling on A Budget: Accommodation Tips

Traveling on A Budget: Accommodation Tips

A few weeks ago, I went on a trip with a group of friends to Phuket, Thailand. We were all fresh graduates from university, so we didn’t have a stable income. We’ve planned and saved up for this trip for a year with freelance money and whatever else we can get. Once we’ve collected everything, we realized that finding an accommodation was a challenge for our budget. We wanted somewhere clean, with great location, and definitely big enough for all three of us. Long story short, we found the perfect accommodation which was the cherry on top of a great holiday. Here’s how we did it, and how you should too when traveling on a budget.

hotel room open doorBe Critical with Hotels

The first thing that came to mind when looking for accommodation when traveling are hotels. Hotels provide services that are beneficial for travelers, such as breakfast, room cleaning, laundry, etc. However, they can be quite expensive. They’re probably the most expensive type of accommodation besides renting villas, especially if you opt for a hotel room in a resort.

This is why it’s a good idea to do a price comparison search from all the various hotel searching websites and apps, such as Agoda or Trivago. If you have a credit card, these websites usually have massive discounts for a limited time for luxurious hotels. This is how we got our accommodation in Phuket. We searched it up on a hotel searching website, and found a three-star hotel located in Patong city center, a few minutes from the food markets and the beach, discounted for 64% on that day only!

bed and breakfast houseEmbrace Bed and Breakfasts

From the other trips that I’ve done, I found that bed and breakfasts are the most charming accommodation you’d be able to find. It’s a warm and friendly environment, where everyone who stays there will gather and bond during breakfast or even dinner. Sometimes, fellow travelers will talk and end up traveling the area or doing activities together.

If you’re not much of a people person, though, this might not be the best type of accommodation for you. You’ll have to sleep in a bunk bed or a single bed in one room with 3 to 5 other people. Bathrooms will be shared. Breakfasts are usually buffet and homemade, while dinners are more rare but sometimes available, depending on the owner. Price-wise, bed and breakfasts are usually the cheapest. There are now many new and hip bed and breakfasts in tropical islands such as Bali, so don’t be afraid to check them out.

AirBnB is a Miracle

AirBnB is probably the best thing that has ever happened for travelers worldwide. They provide us with private accommodation, usually an entire house or apartment! A private room in a house is also common, which basically means you’ll be renting a room in someone’s house. However, for holidays, people usually prefer an entire housing all for themselves.

The rates depend on the star rating and quality of the housing, so the more you pay, the more quality you’ll get. Fear not, there are a lot of housing options that aren’t expensive, yet very comfortable and adequate for a holiday. We recommend using the Superhost and Instant Book filter when searching for an accommodation in AirBnB, so that you’ll get the best reviewed accommodation and can book right away without having to wait for the host’s approval.
