Lazy Budget Chef: Shopping Loyalty Club Card Organizer

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.
