How was your Thanksgiving? I hope it was m-a-r-v-e-l-o-u-s! Ours was.
When I was a little girl I loved going to the post office and getting the piles of Christmas cards that were in the box at the post office. My mother sent out about 100 cards in which she put a hand written note in each and every one!
Today with the price of stamps and other factors it seems fewer cards are being sent out and in our home received. Here are 5 Christmas card tips:
•Take your Christmas journal and make your list. By having all of the names and addresses in one place helps with clutter control.
Clear clutter in your address book and Christmas journal by removing the names of those you have lost track of making it impossible to send cards to. You could check Facebook to see if you can reconnect there.
•You can buy stamps on line through USPS.com and even print postage.
•Ask for help from your family to stamp the envelopes and print out labels on the computer to save you time and stress.
•Mail your cards so they will arrive before Christmas.I still love getting cards and I tape them around the doorway just like when I was a child. I bought a card holder and I made the cutest one ever but I still tape them up. (To clear clutter I gave the card holders away to someone who would use them).
We’ll talk about two other ways to send cards later this week.
