Etsy artist selling wallets made out of Atari carts

I have never, in my 28 years of life, had a wallet that would be considered fashionable or cool. I also have a severe lack of wallet organization skills, which leads to important credit cards getting sandwiched in-between retail store discount cards and cash being buried under unnecessary bar receipts. In short, I've spent my entire wallet-owning existence with a real-life Costanza wallet. Fortunately, a new Etsy store has opened today that may be the cure to my many money-holding ills.

Niles Zwolack, known on Etsy as "Nilesz" has created wallets made out of Atari cartridge husks. Inside, the cart is separated into two sides -- one has a money clip, while the other can house up to eight credit cards. The store selection has over 60 game carts-turned-wallets available for purchase, running the gamut from well-known (Pole Position, E.T) to obscure (Demons to Diamonds). Games with art on them run US$55, while the early-era games with text-only covers run US$35. No word yet on whether the store will carry wallets for alternatively-shaped games like one of my personal Atari favorites, Demon Attack.

Even if they don't, I'm still thinking of retiring my freebie promotional wallet for Pure that has a tear in the leather where I yanked out the gaudy wallet chain. It does have some charm, though. Right?

Brother QL-820NWB Professional Label Printer

It’s easy to set up, it’s compact and quiet when printing and to top if off, the print quality is excellent. This is hands down the best printer I’ve used for printing labels.

Brainstorming, innovation, problem solving, and negotiation have all become much more productive and valuable if people can easily collaborate in real time with minimal friction.

The print quality also does not disappoint, it’s clear, bold, doesn’t smudge and the text is perfectly sized.
