As soon as you turn 50, you receive one of these each month I swear trying to get you to apply for membership. Same goes with plastic credit card samples, gift cards etc.

nice hack

Thank you! I started receiving AARP propaganda in my late 40's and would wad everything into the postage-paid envelope, send it back to them and they finally got the hint. But I do have these clear American Express dummies I've been saving "for something".

I like to use them for spreading glue on woodworking projects. ☺

And I've been throwing them away, I love the idea of using them as disposable spreaders, thanks.

Nice life hack

I like your use the best. An Apple Phone in it is just over the top. My daughter gave me a pick punch for Christmas as a joke for my card. I don't use picks but I do use them in Geocaching. I'll give yours a try because I have a lifetime supply of picks. Thanks for your idea.

So simple, yet so effective. I've got a lot of old gift cards, etc lying around. Will definitely be giving this a go.
