Unclutter Now: Coupons and Loyalty Cards

Unclutter Now: Coupons and Loyalty Cards

They may not be actually heavy, but coupons and other loyalty cards can be annoying, especially in handbags and pockets.
How to unclutter coupons and useless cards?

Let’s start:

  • Empty out whatever looks like a coupon or loyalty/membership card from everything (e.g. your wallet, purse, card holder, small pockets and other pouches).
  • If your attention is distracted by a squirrel, stay focused on the task at hand. You can repeat to yourself “focus, focus” if it helps you, well, focus.
  • Throw out all expired coupons.
  • Throw out all valid coupons for things you don’t usually buy. In other words, if you didn’t have a coupon, would you still purchase that product? If not, time to get rid of it.
  • Throw out membership and loyalty cards for stores you haven’t set foot in 18 months. That’s a year and a half. Also check your keychain for the smaller versions (keytags).
  • If you have “an app for that,” you can also scan your loyalty cards into your smartphone and throw out the physical ones.
  • Enjoy the weight that has been lifted from your shoulders.
