As an auxilary to the Gift Box post of the other day, I was wondering, do you all keep a selection of greeting cards on hand at your place?
If you don’t, you really should! If you have to run out and buy a card at the last minute you will usually spend about $4 at Wally World or the local drugstore. Dollar stores usually sell greeting cards 2 for $1, and Michaels sells boxed greeting cards 20 for $7.99 in their store.
Buy a basic assortment of birthday, thank you, congratulations, get well and sympathy cards and you will be ready for any contingency while saving money. Personally I prefer the boxed sets from Michaels. The cards are very nice quality, with various ornmentation (3D, glitter, googly eyes etc), they contain a variety of types (including a few blank cards) and the boxes are a great place to keep and organize the cards.
And don’t forget to buy some stamps while you are at it 🙂
