Remembering To Cash In On Cash Back

This simple tip can help you maximize earning money back when checking out.

Ever put the milk in the cupboard and the cereal in the fridge? That would be me. I use to be smart, before having a child and the severe state of sleep deprivation I'm in. This post is brought to you by my hubsband, simply because I can never remember which credit card to use. Maybe it's because, while shopping, I measure success by getting 80% of my list scratched off with minimal kicking and screaming.

This easy solution helps me remember which cash back credit card to use, keeping up with what's what, and maximizing our dividends.

We check monthly or quarterly to see what special cash back offers each card is running, and update the labels. Sometimes I get a chuckle out of a cashier, but mostly comments on how simplistically smart the idea really is, thanks honey!
