    How To: store small items in an organizer pouch/wallet

    Hello everyone! I am the recent recipient of a Clear Organizer Wallet in lovely Kiwi ballistic nylon and I thought I would share my technique for wrangling all the small and fragile items like SIM cards and SD cards that are constantly getting lost and misplaced. For this DIY project you will need a hotel key card/old gift card and some small rubber ponytail elastics, they come in packs of about a trillion for a dollar or so.

    Wrap the elastic bands around the key card in a pattern that suits the items you are looking to store, I did most of my wraps around the long axis of the card first. The vertical wraps help keep tension in the elastics wrapped around items.

    Insert your item and voila! Wallet sized, double sided grid-it! Shown is 3 SD cards, 2 SIM cards and 2 mini SIM cards, not shown on the back is an iPad camera connection kit.

    Sheer genius. For me its the multiple SIM cards and micro SIM ejection tools that are hard to keep track of. Will surely give this a try!
