Last year I showed you how I make Christmas cards. I didn’t even use the ones I made. I had so many leftover cards plus the ones that I had made that when we got ready to move I sold them in a yard sale as part of a bag filled with note cards and stationery.
I used up all my extra Christmas cards this past Christmas. I had exactly enough. Now I have exactly zero cards. I could make them and I do enjoy making cards but this year I plan to do something I haven't done in years. I plan to buy them.
This month my plan is to update my Christmas card list and then once the boxed holiday greeting cards hit the shelves at the dollar store next fall I will buy my cards. I won't wait too long or the selection tends to get picked over. Fortunately Christmas cards don't take up a lot of space and will fit nicely in my stationery box until I am ready for them.
I usually write and address my cards over Thanksgiving weekend so I'll have them all ready to go in plenty of time. Do you prefer to make or buy your Christmas cards?
