So part of being kind is mailing people things, right? So this weekend I was able to put together a little kit to help me stay on the ball when it comes to things like cards and birthdays and just-to-say hello notes. I read this in a magazine or book somewhere a very long time ago and unfortunately can’t remember where, but the gist of it is to create folders for each month and fill with the cards you’ll need to send that month.
So, I took some manilla folders and created one for each month and listed birthdays on them. Then I filled these folders with some cards. That way, when the time comes, you’ll be ready to mail! All I need to do now is get enough stamps, so I don’t have to be worry about getting anything later. If you have extra cards, keep them with your envelopes for new friends you’ll make this year. I am storing the folders in a magazine box on my desk.
And if you’re lucky enough to be in the same city as the birthday celebrator? Pick up a card and carry it with you to the party while you’re wearing a killer, classic look like this.
Just don’t look better than the birthday boy or girl.
