What does your wallet look like?? Part #2

Here are the last 2 tips…

3. How may credit cards are you lugging around?? Maybe you have one credit card, maybe you have forty. How many is necessary to lug around with you?? Lugging around all forty just makes your wallet confusing, if you ask me. I know you know which top three or four cards you use the most. Leave the specialty credit cards at home. You know the ones like, the Macy’s card. You most likely are not shopping there every week. So get it out only when you are planning your next trip to the mall. Do you understand? It just isn’t necessary or safe to carry them all. Plus in case your wallet or purse gets stolen, it’s a lot easier to call in to cancel three to four cards instead of ten.

4. Do you feel like you have a million reward cards?? I would encourage you to get them all out and spread them out on the counter or table. Check everywhere for any and all reward cards. Once you have them laid out, pick your top five to seven stores you shop the most in. Carry only those in your wallet and keep the rest together in an envelope or container in a drawer. When you are looking for one, you will know where to find them or where to put them back after shopping.

  1. I have been using a Droid app called "Handy Cards" I am sure Apple has an app somewhere too. But it scans and stores all my reward cards.
    Also, I have not tried it yet, but "cellfire" for coupons has an app that holds coupons, if you have a smart phone some apps are not only fun, but very useful! Thank you great advice!

  2. I love that idea!! I never knew I could do that!! I am all over know me I love to simplify!!!
