Organi-Spring Week 1, Task 5: Wallet
Do you hold a club card from every place you shop?  Is your wallet overflowing with receipts (a la Seinfeld's George Costanza)?  Let's take a moment to delve into the depths of this rarely organized yet important piece of daily life.  Time to evaluate and eliminate.  Start with your credit cards.  Do you use them all on a regular basis?  Would you feel safer to carry only the ones you regularly use and lock up the others in your safe at home?  And how about those club cards?  Do you really need/use them all?  Many retailers allow you to look up your club card account via your phone number so you will not even need the card for your sale prices and discounts.  And finally, go through those receipts.  If you need them, file them away in their appropriate place (business, home, etc.).  If you don't need them, shred them (if they contain personal information) or toss them.

There is a plethora of information about cleaning out your winter guck and letting the spring sunshine into your home, so we're focusing on those little things around the house that will give you a more organized home and perhaps a bit more storage along the way.  Just 4 weeks, 5 tasks per week, around 10 minutes per task and VOILA! in around an hour a week the little things in life seem a bit more organized.
