How To Use A Money Clip Step-By-Step

Using a money clip is very simple. But it’s important to know a few hacks to ensure you look like you know what you’re doing. Plus we’ll show you how to use your money clip to look like a high roller.

Step 1 Buy yourself a high quality money clip

Look for a money clip that is made of steel, or carbon. Not plastic. Personally I prefer the ridge wallet with a money clip attached. It’s an expandable wallet to hold your cards and an external money clip.

Do put your clip on the long edge of your money. You will not get the grip that you need. The clip will slide around, and you may even damage or rip your bills by cutting them this way.

Do not put your money clip over the short edge of your bills. Same principle applies here. You’re more likely for your clip to fall off, and your bills get damaged.

Putting your $1 bills overtop of your stack. If you want to look broke just put $1 bills at the top of your money clip stack. Or if you want to catch eyes when out in the big city you should be putting the biggest bills on top.
