Gift cards are so very popular, but one of the problems I had was remembering the balance on the card. Keeping the receipts really was messy and they tended to get torn or lost. We began writing the balance on the gift card when we got home from the restaurant or shopping trip. Use a Sharpie marker and write the balance on the card being sure to avoid the bar code and any other numbers on the gift card. We cross out a previous balance if the card is used multiple times.
