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.
These 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:
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?
