Storing Your Store Cards

Storing Your Store Cards

Chances are, you've got more store / loyalty card than your wallet has room for. I keep my most used in my purse, but that still leaves dozens I've amassed for occasional out of town shopping, or needing a membership number to enter competitions... So the question is, what to do with them all?



Digital Switchover

There are a number of apps these days specially designed to replace loyalty cards. I use Stocard and it really is a fantastic piece of technology. You just bring it up on your phone when you get to the checkout and they scan the barcode on the screen. It also allows you to check your points balance, etc, with just a couple of clicks.

But. (There's always a but!) Some stores insist on the physical card - Boots and Sainsburys spring to mind - and if your battery goes dead you're kind of stumped. Still, it's great for lesser used cards you might otherwise forget about. The only remaining problem is what to do with all the physical cards you hang on to just in case.

Business Card Holders

Those little plastic desk holders can take about 40 cards and can be had for pennies. (Literally. I paid 1p for one with free shipping on eBay.) Alternatively, if you've ordered your own business cards the plastic box they came in is the perfect size. Another option is a business card wallet; these come in various shapes and sizes, from professional leather to my own Sanrio Little Twin Stars version.

Swap Shop

My favourite method of storing loyalty cards though is to bundle them all in with my paper bills, etc, in my finance file. You can get trading card album pages for about 25p each, and they just clip easily into a ringbinder. Simple!

I've also got a couple of kids' books I didn't want to part with - The Squirrel and Little Owl Book of Pets .

50 Free Welsh Language Resources

Unlike literacy and maths, Welsh really isn't a subject we'll be using everyday without a concerted effort to do so. Every morning we've been doing three Duolingo lessons with Marianna - challenging for me and repetition of basic words and concepts for her - and then watching a couple of Welsh language cartoons to listen to the rhythm of the words and so on. Here is a list of free Welsh language resources from around the web, ranging from GCSE revision guides to adult basics to children's cartoons uploaded to YouTube. Hopefully you'll be able to mix and match to suit your own needs over the next few weeks and months. (I'd normally direct people to places like Sain Wales to buy hard copy media, but they're closed for the duration and we should try to lighten the load on the postal service to essentials besides.)

Simply Cook Review

I kept seeing ads and deals for Simply Cook everywhere, so as there was a special offer on at OhMyDosh! Rewards (£3 for the box and £3.50 cashback) I figured I had nothing to lose by giving it a try. What Is It? Recipe kits packed into boxes which fit through your letterbox. The usual price is £9.99 for a kit of 4, with each one serving 2-4 people depending on your serving sizes. All you need to do is buy the fresh ingredients required and follow the instructions. Here is Simply Cook's own helpful diagram: Does It Work? For me, as the person just eating it, it was awesome. Everything tasted great - the mushroom penne in particular was so good I went back for seconds - and I liked that the sauces weren't as rich as Anthony would usually make them. For Anthony, who cooked them, they weren't as impressive. He complained that the food was bland and that it was actually quite a lot of faff, as Lidl didn't stock everything we needed which meant another trip ou
