I bought it because it's cheap and that's how I roll.

Nothing wrong with saving money, provided you won't have to buy another wallet next year because yours falls apart or anything like that. I'll buy something expensive if I think I'll get my money's worth out of it. I should never have to buy another wallet ever again unless this one is stolen or I accidentally toss it into a wood chipper or something like that. Buy quality, cry once.

This is part of what I hate about cars. You can't buy a car these days and expect it to last forever. You don't own the car, you basically rent it until you can rent another one. In other words, it owns you. That's frustrating, to say the least. Maybe I'll have to go the Andrew route and just stop driving. I'd do it too! But my wife wouldn't be cool at all with it. Bah!
