Your ID, credit card, cash and a key all securely attached your phone. That's all you need. --- The bare necessities of life!
THIS IS NOT A WALLET!!
There are many minimalist wallets on the market today. They work well and they serve a purpose. However, after successfully being funded with our own minimalist wallet, the Wallet Works, on Kickstarter, we discovered we could be even more of a minimalist.
We realized that most people only take the bare necessities when running out for a short time: a phone, a wallet, which contained an ID, credit card and cash and sometimes a key. Our solution?
Why not just grab a Grab N Go Band?
Grab the band and your phone, add your ID, credit, cash and a key and you're ready to go. Everything is held securely in one place, your phone.
Update 3 and 4 - More Colors!
We are pleased to announce we now have 10 colors:
- Real Red
- Cyan Blue
- Lime Green --almost Kickstarter Green
- Pink Sizzle
- School Bus Yellow
- Pure Purple
- Sunkissed Orange

The Grab N Go Band will be mailed in time for the holidays!
That's right. Our manufacturer has agreed to ship the bands to us in time for us to get them to you for the holidays. Check out update #5 for more details.
Is the Grab N Go Band difficult to use?
The band is easy to use. Place the band over opposite corners on the front of your phone. Notice that the band does not interfere with the use of the phone.
Next, turn the phone over and adjust the band, so the larger part is in the middle.
You will have to adjust the location and tension of the band to make it fit your particular phone. It's that simple. Now all of your bare necessities are in one place.
The Grab N Go Band will work with most smart phones and over most cases!
Here is what the Grab N Go Band looks like on an Samsung Galaxy S4 in an Otterbox, an iPhone 4S and iPhone 5 both in a Lifeproof case and on a Samsung Galaxy S4:

Risks and challenges Learn about accountability on Kickstarter
We completed our last Kickstarter project, Wallet Works, on time despite the fact that there was an unexpected problem with the production from plastics manufacturer.
Risks and challenges are an integral part of any project, new or old. Our research and preparation to manufacture and distribute the Grab N Go band includes lead times that account for error and defects. We have a valued and long-term relationship with our rubber band supplier, Alliance Rubber Company, and we are confident they will be able to manufacture the Grab N Go Band in a timely manner.
We will provide backers with updates on manufacturing, progress and setbacks. No production process is flawless; however, our experiences to date qualifies us to handle any mishap that may come our way. We are prepared for the unexpected.....
It depends on whom you ask. According to our basic Google research, many sites indicate a cell phone will not demagnetize the credit cards, while others say it will. We anticipate most users using the Grab N Go Band for running errands and/or other short-term events.
In our opinion, using the Grab N Go Band is not likely to have any demagnetizing effect. Based on my own personal use, I have experienced absolutely no demagnetizing of any kind.
As of the launch of this project, we only have black, grey and yellow. We hope to be able to offer other colors, but that will depend on how much funding we receive.
Check out the 10/13//13 update! We added more colors! We now have:
Lime Green --almost Kickstarter Green
Grab N Go Bands are latex-free and made entirely in the USA of primarily crude rubber. These bands feel and perform like regular rubber bands. As a result, they will not last forever. They will suffer from exposure to the elements and regular wear and tear.
So, don’t treat the Grab N Go Band as if it is indestructible and try not to lose them. That said, we’ve purchased $80 plus phone cases that carry nothing other than a phone and are supposed to be indestructible and have still broken.
