Save Money–Keep a Card Box (sponsored)

by Jenn @ Frugal Upstate on March 31, 2014

Don’t you just love getting cards?  There is something about opening up your mailbox and finding a brightly colored envelope inside that just gives you a little burst of excitement.

Getting Cards in the MailThese days folks don’t send cards very often anymore.  In our busy lives we are much more likely to shoot a quick text or leave a message on someone’s Facebook wall.  Luckily there still are certain events that still demand the extra effort of a card–and given all the other technological methods we have available to us, actually making that effort is part of what makes it so special.  So for birthdays, anniversaries, Valentines Day and sympathy situation, cards are still the way to go.

What I don’t like is having to run out to buy a card at the last minute.  Since the “big” stores are about a half hour away “Last Minute” means “super expensive” at the little drugstore in town.  It irks me to spend top dollar on a card just because I wasn’t prepared.  Over the years I’ve found the best thing to do is to keep a “Card Box” on hand, filled with a selection of cards for all occasions. In the past I’ve been able to find cards two for a dollar, but they were, well, kind of bargain basement.  Occasionally I’d find some nice ones, but for the most part they looked like they cost $.50 each.

 That’s where Hallmark’s new line of Value Cards at Walmart comes in!  For just $.47 each you can get some really nice cards–good quality paper, nice colors and designs, and the trusted name “Hallmark”–so the recipient won’t think you were being cheap! Considering cards cost $2-3 each at most stores, you stand to save a LOT by using the Hallmark value cards

Walmart and Hallmark sent me a variety of the cards to check out and tell you about:

47 cent Hallmark Cards

As you can see–there are a wide variety of cards, things suitable for adults or children, for males or females, something for those who like “classic” or those who like “cutesie”.

Who here keeps a card box?

I have a BIG card box since I send out birthday and anniversary cards to lots of family and friends! The last year or so I have also been sending “thank you for sharing your talents” notes to performers I enjoy … plus anyone else I want to say thank you to. Been working on one note (I keep them brief) for a few weeks since I am trying to be a bit more formal on it … this one is going to Queen Elizabeth II. I like her dignity and the positive role model she has displayed most of her life … I may not agree with everything she has said and done (of course, there are things I have done that I don’t like either) — but I do admire her.
