I keep trying to send out cards each Christmas…I even wrote a Christmas letter detailing all of our travels, and replete with shout-outs. And I didn’t send them. Gave a few out to friends and co-workers, but none to the family I so wanted to mail them to. I even bought stamps! How hard is it to address envelopes?
So, in perhaps vain hope that some year it’ll happen, I hit the WAY after Christmas sales (none of this 15% off nonsense!) where cards are going for 50-75% off or more. Husband and I have gotten some fantastic bargains this way, including cards from expensive places (think Crane or Papyrus) and wrapping paper for literally cents. Everywhere I go, I’ll look: Borders, B&N, gift boutiques, Target…and though I can never find *good* cards before Christmas, I’ve found some beauties that I can’t wait to use…and which I’m probably hoping will serve as motivation for next year. And that’s what works for me! See more WFMW here.
