Write out all of your gift cards/coupons

Before you go out shopping, look through your wallet, purse, drawers, etc. and collect all of the gift cards/coupons you can find. Then, make a list of them along with the amount so you can stay organized instead of frantically rummaging through your bag at the cash register. Plus, you might find some that you didn’t even know you had, which will help save you money!
