Clever second use
This is just a silly little tip, but I felt so clever that I had to share. I hate taking my whole wallet and huge purse when I'm going out on the town, but I didnt' want to spend money on a smaller wallet. Then, I noticed that the little cover that comes with my birth control pills each month is the same size as a credit card...and presto! It's the perfect size for my id, credit card, and some cash, and takes up tons less room in my purse, or even fits in my back pocket. I also have one to organize my pre-paid calling cards, and my gift-cards. Partially used on one side, full on the other.
