Let’s face it, we’ve all overstuffed our wallets at some point.

From too many cards to random receipts and worn out bills, there are tons of unnecessary items that call your wallet home. But, there’s a way to change that — and save money in the process.

For many, one of the main reasons we spend our cash is because we usually only carry smaller bills. However, if you trade in your money for crisp bills, you may be less likely to spend it.
