The other day in the mail I received some free holiday cards. I thought about putting them with my other cards and then realized I didn’t like them so I recycled them on the spot. (That is a timely clutter control tip). I tell you that little tidbit because I was asked by Kate of Tinyprints.com if I would share with my faithful readers’ information about their beautiful and interesting holiday cards. Right now on their site holiday cards are 20% off. Take a look; they have beautiful cards of all kinds. This is a wonderful way to control clutter as you don’t have to store cards taking up space in a drawer somewhere.
Crossing Holiday Cards Off Your To Do List
You know the scene. The table is cluttered with the holiday cards and envelopes that you settled for at the last minute. You are calculating the mailing time to the most distant friends and relatives and trying to get those sent out first. You are searching frantically for the emailed addresses of those who moved in the past year. In the midst of all this you are trying to think of something meaningful to write, yet your creativity is shut down by stress. You tell yourself that this will not happen next year.
Next year is now. Would it not serve you well, this upcoming holiday season, to plan ahead and eliminate the last minute rush to buy, address and mail? Do not be a victim of last year’s procrastination. If you purchase holiday cards online from a retailer such as Tiny Prints months in advance, you’ll have one less task to worry about as the holiday stress begins to mount. There are many benefits to early card buying, some of which you may not realize.
- Selection of holiday cards – You can take your time and choose the perfect cards instead of settling – and don’t have to worry about backorder!
- Opportunity – If you are planning on photo cards, you’ll have ample time to get the perfect family picture for your holiday cards.
- Enjoy receiving more cards from others – It is a fact that many people send cards to others after they are prompted by those they receive. Getting your cards out early leads to Christmas reciprocity.
- Ensure cards get there on time – sending cards early, that is, before the post office is in a flurry of letters and packages, ensures your cards will get to your recipients on time.
- Stress reduction – Trying to write and address cards at the last minute adds to an already stressful time of year. You will have more time to say yes to those unexpected invitations you receive.
Buying and sending your holiday cards early is a great beginning to a stress free holiday season.
