My tiny and always-organized "wallet"

For years I had a huge wallet that took up a lot of room in my purse and was always stuffed with receipts, change and all manner of outdated cards and junk. Not to mention how hard it was to struggle my ID out of the little plastic pocket when I needed to hand it over at the airport, when buying adult beverages, etc.

So in the spirit of making life a little easier, I got a mini accordion card holder so now I only have the cards I actually need/use and no room to load it up with junk! :). It folds open so each card is very easy to get out and use!

How to organize and remember to use gift cards

I love gift cards! I love giving them because you know it's a gift that will be used and appreciated, and I love getting them! I just have a very hard time remembering to use them because we keep them in a drawer at home. Not helpful!! So in an effort to organize them and get them in a spot where we'll remember to spend them, I got a small accordion file from Target where I made the categories of cards that we have and now keep it in the (locked) glove box of the car so they are always with us!
