Is your wallet overstuffed with rewards cards? To slim down your wallet and keep those cards organized, check out this fantabulous tip from LifeClever reader, Michael Willits:
Most of us carry around a few of those plastic rewards cards from airlines, grocery stores, movie rental shops, restaurants, coffee shops, etc. However, keeping more than three or four organized and accessible can be a nightmare, especially if you have more than a few (we have over 30!). Eventually, we had so many, it became impossible to fit them in our wallets. We’d often get to the store, only to realize we’d left the proper card at home.
While out shopping, I picked up three of those small carabiner-like key ring clips. Next, I used a 1-hole punch to punch a hole in the top or bottom corner of each card (being careful not to put a hole through the mag-stripe or numbers). I then put all the travel related cards on one clip, and all the grocery, movie rental, and miscellaneous cards on a second clip.
We hang them next to our keys by the door, so whenever we know we’re going shopping or need to book travel, our cards are accessible and organized.
I recently downsized my wallet to a single-pocket cardholder, so Michael’s tip couldn’t come at a better time. Thanks for sending this to me, Michael!
