Thrifty Tip

One thing that I have longed to be more intentional about is sending cards to the special people in my life. Not just for birthdays, but for encouragement, getting well, and just because. I truly struggle with this. I never seem to be thinking about greeting cards when I am at the store and when I do think about them, the cost is a BIG deterrent. Well, I think I found the solution to my problem. I'll admit I am a late bloomer to the idea of thriftiness, but WOW!!! boxed cards are a lifesaver! Now I have cards on hand for all kinds of occasions and they are way more economical than buying one at a time. To make it even better, I ordered mine from CBD at a huge discount. I ordered eight boxes of cards with twelve cards in each box for only $30.96 INCLUDING SHIPPING! That makes each card only $.31. Now I have no excuses.....better check my calendar :O)


  1. You are so organised. I know the art of handwriting everything is dwindling but I still like to recieve a handwritten note. I often will keep pretty cards for bookmarks. My sister has an inspiration board (she writes alot) made of a gorgeous fabric with ribbon on it to hold pretty things on it. You will always have a card on hand now for every occasion.

  2. This is a great idea Heather!


  3. This is a great idea! I try to have boxed cards around too! It is discouraging to want to send a simple card and not have the right one available. I know I could just write a note, but I really like using cards too.
    That was a great deal you got through cbd.
