Capitalism is an amazing system.
It causes people to take everyday, utilitarian items and come up with new ways to make them exciting in the hopes of turning a profit.
The Jimi is a case in point. It's a new take on a wallet, or, as the company puts it: "The wallet for people who hate wallets."
The Jimi is made from recycled plastic and has a top that can be snapped closed. It's relatively compact, which is a good thing, but the trade-off is that it only holds a few cards and not much cash.
I tried one during a trip to several casino boats that ring the Chicago area and found that I had to fold my bills very small to fit them - that's before I started losing, of course.
Still, it was fun showing it to people. I could see carrying it when I run and only need some pocket change.
My daughter also came up with several uses, such as filling it with M&Ms to sneak into a movie. That led me to think that firms might find it to be a fun way to send out releases or media teasers about upcoming events.
