Recently I bought a pre-loved Louis Vuitton agenda, I bought it not to use as my planner but to make into my wallet. I have now been using it for almost a month with great success. Know yes it makes a great little agenda for some but personally for me my writing is a bit to large to keep track of all my stuff in, So for me it works great using it this way. It's also great if you have been wanting a LV wallet but don't want to spend $700 + on it. You can either buy the agenda new from Louis Vuitton for $395 or buy it pre-loved for $225 or under at a place like TheRealReal.
If you don't have a pm size Louis Vuitton agenda that is fine, if you have a pocket size Filofax or similar brand this would work for you as well. So keep reading for some ideas on how to turn your pocket size agenda into a wallet. You'd be surprised how much I can fit in this agenda/wallet!
Inside this agenda to start with is 3 card slots. Great for your ID or credit cards. And behind that is a pocket and as well in the back of the agenda. In those two pockets I keep different paper money. One for larger bills and the other smaller.
I bought two different types of plastic inserts to use for money, coins & membership cards. For my small bills, business cards & membership cards I used 2-in-1 badge holders from Walmart that can be bought in the office supplies section. They work perfect for those items. All I did was put them in sideways and used a hole punch to punch extra holes.
The zippered pouch I used for my coins is from Filofax its there zip lock envelope in pocket size. Any of the Filofax pocket size items will fit. They also offer credit card holders. I just used the badge holders because you get a lot more for your money.
In this agenda I can fit: 5+ membership cards, my ID & credit card, coins, cash and a stack of business cards with room to spear. I love how its compact without being to small, and it can fit in most of my bags. It's great for everyday use. For a long trip or a night out id switch to a more traditional wallet but I've found it perfect for my everyday life.
If you've been looking for ideas on how to use a small agenda I hope this helped you. If you've turned your pocket agenda into a wallet id love to hear what you used to do so.
