A new Kickstarter campaign from Folsom company NewWallet.com aims to help alleviate that problem with a product that allows you to carry all those things in one device. The company is led by CEO Karen Crawford, who has 20 years of experience in tech startups and corporate development.

The device acts as a case for your phone that opens in the back for storage of cards and cash. It also operates via Bluetooth technology with a fob attached to your keys and an app that will ensure that you'll never lose your phone or your keys.
"The New Wallet team set out to create an integrated wallet and phone case designed with a woman's touch - a product that understands how busy we are with work, family, fitness... with life," says the New Wallet Kickstarter page. "No more digging through your purse or wallet to find what you need. No more dropping your phone when trying to carry too many things. No more losing your wallet, phone, or keys. Ever."
The Kickstarter campaign has a goal of $25,000 by May 21. Just two hours after its launch at 11 a.m. Tuesday, the campaign had secured over $6,000 from 15 total backers.
The New Wallet is currently being sold for iPhone 5, 5s and 6. Early-bird donors who give $39 can receive one unit. Shipping is estimated to begin in August.
