Savvy Caddy “Won’t Break Your Back or Your Budget!”

The Savviest Wallet Around!

reviews21 027                           reviews21 048
     If there is one thing that annoys my husband more than anything, it is having a thick wallet (unfortunately not because of money, LOL) stuck in his back pocket.  In fact, ever since I met him, he has always removed his wallet from his back pocket before he even sits down!  Just for fun I offered to carry his wallet around with me to see how it felt for one day, and I can definitely see why he removes it!  It is akin to sitting on a smooth rock, not very comfortable at all, especially on the lower back and hips.  Plus, I was hyper-aware of this bulge over my already bulging bottom whenever I was walking around.  Trying to find one certain card among all the others, in those incredibly small and tight slots is near impossible!  And if your wallet is not kept super organized, with an assigned slot for each card, you will have a mess on your hands pulling out random cards until you come to the one you need!  It would drive me crazy dealing with that every day.  So, when I heard about the Savvy Caddy, I was immediately intrigued!
     Savvy Caddy was created by Alan Beckley after he grew tired of dealing with the same old wallet designs that seemed to present more problems than they solved.  He kept trying to find a slim wallet that was not only comfortable and non-bulky, but one where he could easily see and access all of his cards. The Savvy Caddy does exactly that! It is an amazingly slim, super simple alternative to the common wallet.
     Unlike bi-fold and tri-fold wallets, which fold all of the cards into a single pile, the Savvy Caddy is designed so it cuts the pile of cards in half and holds two separate piles instead of one.  So the wallet winds up being half as thick as a typical wallet, yet it can hold twice as many cards!  It is similar to a photo album in that all of the cards fit down into clear plastic pockets so that they are easy to see and easy to access.  There is also a billfold section for money like there is on a regular wallet.

     The Savvy Caddy is made from soft, durable genuine leather, and is available in two colors (brown or black) and four different styles:
Savvy Caddy SC-8 – the thinnest of the four, holds up to 8 cards, and has a billfold section
Savvy Caddy SC-16 – holds up to 16 cards, more cards than the average wallet, yet is thin and flexible, has a billfold part
Savvy Caddy SC-24 – holds up to 24 cards, has a billfold section for holding money, receipts, etc.,
Savvy Caddy SC-32 – the latest Savvy Caddy – holds up to 32 cards, has a billfold section and is still less than one (1) inch!
     I, or rather my husband, had the opportunity to try the Savvy Caddy SC-16 in brown.  As mentioned above, it can hold 16 cards plus money and receipts in the billfold part, and it is still incredibly thin!  The leather itself is a dark brown in color, very soft and durable, and it is well-stitched to last a long time.  It has four plastic sleeves, each of which have two “pockets” that can hold a total of four cards (2 per pocket). The plastic sleeves seem to be made of a thick, durable plastic which should hold up under a lot of use.  You will notice that there are these little “buttons” on the sides of the pockets, these are a patented feature and they prevent the cards from falling out no matter how many times you pull them in and put them back. There is also a billfold section for money, receipts and more. You know how I mentioned above that these wallets basically take the stack of cards and split them into two stacks?  Well over each stack (or section) there are also two flaps of leather that fold down in order to provide cover so others cannot see everything in your wallet when it is open (see pictures).

     The Savvy Caddy is around the same width as a typical wallet, but is a little longer.  My husbands wallet measures approximately 4” wide, 3” long and is close to 2” thick.  The Savvy Caddy measures  4” wide, 5” long and close to 1” thick full.  Although the Savvy Caddy is longer, it still fits perfectly in your back pocket, especially since it is so slim!

      It is simply amazing how much this wallet can hold and still be so slim!  You can see from my pictures below how it compares to my husbands typical wallet in width, and my husband only has 11 cards in his wallet (two of which are paper, not plastic), while the Savvy Caddy has 16.  For the purpose of the pictures below, neither wallet has money in it, just cards.

     Since my husband is the one that used the Savvy Caddy over the last few weeks, the following is his opinion.  At first it was a completely different feeling.  Since it is so thin, I kept feeling the urge to reach back and make sure the wallet was still there, especially after getting up from sitting down.  The length took awhile to get used to, but it still fit comfortably in my back pocket.  I love the fact that it does not feel bulky when walking around or sitting down.  I also love how organized it is, and finding any card is now a cinch.  Instead of either fighting to get cards out of slots that are too tight, or worrying about all of my cards falling out of slots that are too loose, I now can simply open my wallet, flip through the ‘pages’ and find exactly what I am needing.   I can then easily slide the card out and put it back in it’s place just as easily.  I do want to mention that when you first use the sleeves, they will be a little tight to start with, but that will ease with use.  As far as returning to using my old wallet, I have no urge at all.  Although it took a few days to get used to the dimensions of the Savvy Caddy, it was well worth it for the comfort and ease of use!

DID YOU KNOW??
     Did you know that an article in the New England Journal of Medicine (Aug. 25, 1978) actually documented cases of what was referred to as “credit-card-wallet sciatica” as the pain resulting from sitting upon a thick wallet (over 1” thick) for extended periods.  Can you imagine how much worse it is in today’s society where almost everything is on a plastic card?! 
     Savvy Caddy can be purchased through the website and vary in price from $19.95 (SC-8) up to $34.95 (SC-32). All wallets come with a 30-day unconditional money back guarantee.  These wallets would make a perfect present for the holidays, too! So, say goodbye to those tight little slots that stretch out over time allowing all of the cards to slide out! And say goodbye to a thick, bulky uncomfortable and unorganized wallet, and say hello to the Savvy Caddy!
    Be sure to check out Savvy Caddy on Facebook and there is a funny video on YouTube which you can check out below!!

This is awesome! I hate that my husband sits on his wallet all the time, it's so bad our chiropractor notices and tells hubby all the time one leg is longer than the other because of wearing his wallet.

This is so cool! My hubby is always having to dig around for the right card, not sure if he took it out or just can't find it, etc. This would be great!

Between my husband and I we still wouldn't have enough cards to fill even half of that wallet because we only use our debit cards and don't have credit cards or anything like that. All my store thingies are on keyrings, but it is a great idea!!

My husband is always removing his wallet in the car, he says it hurts to sit on it! This all reminds me of the Seinfield episode..haha

Wow that looks like a great item for men. I always wondered how uncomfortable it was to sit on. Thankfully as a woman we get to carry purses.

Well how nifty is that my husband needs this :)

I would give it to my dad! He has so many different business cards and stuff that he refuses to get rid of... and the velcro on his wallet is dead. He can't close it anymore, haha.
