What’s on YOUR Key Ring?

IMG_0722Chances are you too have 1 or more of these small plastic things that slip onto a key ring.

Not even sure about the correct term for these, but it made me wonder . . . what did we do BEFORE these came into popular use at SO many places from the supermarket to the library?

IMG_0720This week, I decided to organize  ones I’ve been carrying on my key ring and even put them all on a separate “O” ring. This way I don’t have to take my car keys with me when going someplace that requires using one of these things and Grenville is driving. Car and house keys have separate “O” rings too.

Here’s where the ones on my key ring are used  (There used to be a few more, but I never used then and finally removed them.)

  • County library
  • Local supermarket
  • CVS and Rite Aid
  • Panera Bread (a road trip favorite)
  • Ikea (ditto)
  • Shop Rite NJ supermarket (when we visit my mom in NJ)
  • Shaw’s supermarket (when we visit the grandkids in RI)
  • Duke Farm, NJ (allows us to use bikes provided there)

OK, your turn — how many of these do you carry on your key ring. Do you use any/all of them and where ?

nary a one on my key ring, only keys and the remote

These all will be replaced by using an app on your smartphone. I think the one on iPhone's is called Passport. At this point it is in its infancy. I've found that giving my phone number at checkout avoids the need to carry those card things.

I have a butterfly on mine and the only plastic card is a little M&M card lol. Thanks for sharing . Have a good day !

Those things always break so now I don't have any. Instead I have a small padlock as a key ring :-)

Have a great day!

Nope... not a one. Bill has all those added to the IPhone and that did away with all the "big" ones (grocery etc)

We have an Ace Rewards one of these on our key ring...that's it.

I have way too many of them. I think the Kroger one is the best for us. We build up points for discounted gas.

Hmmmm, Kroger (Roanoke), Weis Mkts (PA), CVS, Foodlion.... That's it, but a bunch of keys... 2 vehicles, 2 houses, the barn...

I have several of them. We have one that comes with our library cards and we call them key tags. They are nice to have to use for discounts and such, but they are kind of a nuisance to keep track of. I have three different drug store tags, one for the library, and one for the Y.

I call it a fob and only have one: a tag from the war amps. If I ever lose my keys, someone could throw them into a mailbox and they would get to me.

I actually don't have a one on my keyring though if I did there would be two.

Linda said...

I have a separate key ring for mine... so so many! I don't have a smart phone yet but when they monthly fee gets cheap enough I'll get the app.

I have 3, anymore than that and they would just get in my way.
