The Best Time to Buy Everything at its Lowest Price

I used to think that saving money by seasonal shopping was grocery shopping at farmer’s markets in the summer, buying pumpkins in the fall, and not something I could not do the six months out of the year where nothing grows locally during the winter.   It wasn’t until I wrote a monthly What Goes On Sale and What to Buy on Clearance series that I realized I couldn’t have been more wrong.   I learned that almost everything from food to household goods to cars has a time of the year where it goes on sale because: There is a seasonal abundance (like fresh produce) The store has some of  last season's stock left in storage and wants to make room for the current season There is on end of season clearance to make room for next season’s goods on the store shelves There is a sale due to a celebrating an industry month (such as National Craft Month, National Camping Month, national holidays,etc.) There is a mega

Shopping Loyalty Club Card Organizer

I have a ton of frequent buyer cards. Some I use often, others not so much. I thought I was being a clever, clever girl when I put, my AAA card, medical card and all of those shopping cards in a separate zippered holder in my purse when I ran out of room to hold money in my wallet.

That worked for a bit.

It still takes me a good couple of minutes to shuffle through the cards to find the one I need. The ones I use the most like my medical and library cards hide in the mess. I'm embarrassed when I shuffle over them and hold up the checkout line.


Most of my loyalty cards are big and don’t have a little key ring guy.

I grabbed a paper hole punch and went to work on the big plastic cards.

 Punch! Punch! Punch!

I put the plastic loyalty cards on a separate key ring. My medical card and the paper loyalty cards stay in the pouch.

 All organized!

Good thing I did this when I did this. Last Saturday Husband and I went to the movies and ended up with three more loyality cards. A replacement AMC Movie Club Card,  a Gamestop card, and a Godiva Chocolate card. I love the Godiva card most of all!

How do you keep your cards organized?

This is brilliant! At the moment my cards are in a business card organizer but it's too bulky and heavy to keep in my purse so I keep it in my car and then forget my card many times.
That's such a great idea! all of my cards are a mess, they take up SO much room!
