Reward Card Organization

How many of you still have the organization bug? I do! To use the phrase that has been coined in our household….I’m on a cleaning rampage. Pretty much anything that crosses my path that is unorganized or messy is getting cleaned out and put in order {or at least put on the ever-growing list!}.

I have about eight gazillion reward cards from different stores and restaurants that we frequent. I have the plastic credit card-like cards, the tiny key fobs, paper business-like cards.

Some are used more than others like my Kroger key fob. That gets used weekly. Others, like my Anthro card are sadly not used as often. {Yes, sadly. Why must you be so expensive, Anthro?!?}. My issue was I had a wallet stuffed full of cards that only saw the light of day ever so often and a tangle of key rings and key fobs, and then a few stragglers stuck into various drawers. It was becoming difficult to find what I needed when I needed it.

I came up with a really quick, easy, cheap solution. I had a little package of loose binder rings that I had already bought for another small project.

I started by sliding the key fob reward cards onto a ring. These already have hole punched in them.

Next, I punched a hole into the remainder of my rewards cards. Make sure you punch the cards with the back facing towards you to make sure you don’t punch through a bar code, member number, or any other important information.

Slide the cards onto the ring in whatever order makes most sense to you, whether alphabetically, by most use, color, whatever.

Voila! Your life just got easier! I wish I could say that those are all the cards I have, but there are still a bunch to be added as I fish them out of drawers. It’s so nice to just have a separate item in my purse instead of some in my wallet and some on my keys. I can even hook them onto my little Vera Bradley wallet or my keys if I don’t need to take my purse in with me.

Have a happy Tuesday!  :)
