If you are like me, you have a store card to use for points, discounts, membership, etc at the stores you shop at frequently, and infrequently. Most stores, both large and small want your business and offer some kind of reward for buying stuff from them. This usually means you get a plastic card to keep in your wallet to use when you make a purchase. They can really pile up. I had to get a separate wallet for all my store cards. And when you're standing in line searching through the stack trying to find the right one, it can be frustrating! I'm pretty sure you all are nodding your heads and going "been there, done that". I have the answer!!
I can't take credit for this idea...it was on You Tube somewhere, but do you think I can find it? No! If you happen to have seen it and know where to find it, I would love it if you would let me know so I can give credit where credit is due.
So, here we have this amazingly simple, yet totally brilliant idea for keeping your store cards organized, accessible and easy to find. It's such a great idea, someone really should get the credit for thinking of it.
Here it is...grab a one-hole punch, a key chain ring and your cards. That's it. That is all you need to be in store card organization heaven!
First gather all your cards. Then punch a hole using the hole puncher in the corner of each card.
It's important to watch where you punch the hole though. Make sure you aren't punching through the magnetic strip or bar code on the back of the card. You may have to turn cards back to front and turn them around to get the hole in a corner that doesn't have any important bits in it.
Once you've got all your holes punched, simply hook them all onto the keychain ring. Close and you're done!! Didn't I say it was simple?! AND brilliant?!
Isn't that cool!? All neat and tidy and easy to find the right one. I can't wait to pull this out next time I'm asked for my card.
