I had an older unused credit card wallet, just the size of credit cards, and I use it for the discount cards only. It is easy to find in my purse. I also have one I use for my health insurance cards and information. It has proved handy and a time saver.

Organize your store "perk" cards, gym membership cards, library card etc. by punching a hole in one of the corners using a hole puncher and then putting them on a key ring.

When I go food shopping, I have attached my price plus discount card to my recyclable bag. I just punched a hole in the card (away from the bar code). No more misplaced card and I recycle at the same time.

Many stores offer "frequent shopper" cards that look like credit cards. These were always in my wallet, but they were hard to find and keep organized. I took all the cards I use, punched a hole in the corner of each one, then put them all on a keyring. I have a larger key ring on my purse shoulder strap with a trigger snap that I use for my shopping card ring, work keys, and car key rings. Everything is easy to find and I don't misplace my car keys any more.

As part of setting goals for this year, next on my list is to tackle getting my rewards and rewards cards in some kind of shape. I don't like spending money and I sure hate missing opportunities for getting something free.

I have too many store cards and other important information that I needed to keep on hand, like addresses for forms and kids school address and class numbers (I have three kids and need it when I go to school to pick them up or meet the teacher).
I put some colorful labels on some plastic cards from a cruise that we went some years ago, entered the necessarily information and used a hole puncher to punch holes in one corner of all the cards including the store cards. I strung the cards using a key ring. Now when I go to the supermarket, I do not fumble through my handbag or make a mess of my purse. I can get all the discount that is due while shopping. I have also added a handy Swiss army knife that has a scissors, nail file, knife and a screwdriver all that fold in. It had become a very handy tool.
