It Worked For Me Wednesdays ~ Greeting Cards
The gal over at Rocks In My Dryer has this great little thing called Works-For-Me Wednesdays. I actually went hoping to gather some tips but I got a little excited and decided to add one to the mix.
One thing that works for me is having a greeting card stash. I have never been good at remembering anything and doing things last minute has become impossible with my five kids in tow.
So, I ended up purchasing a nice colorful card box from a neighbor kid doing a fund raiser. It has categories for all different kinds of cards and was ready to be filled. My problem was that greeting cards have gotten a bit pricey and to fill it was impossible without taking out a loan. Trying my best to make use of my pretty new card box, I walked down to our local Grandma Shop (a garage sale type thrift store). Sure enough they had a ton of un-used greeting cards for sale on their front counter at only $.10 each!
Now I have greeting cards available all the time and I actually use them! Notes of encouragement are my favorite to give and I try to keep blank on the inside and Christian themed cards in my box at all times to give to friends and family who are feeling down for one reason or another. I also love having thank you cards ready. When somebody does something nice, even if it is small, I can whip out a card and drop it in the mail right away!
Not only has it kept me from forgetting to say thank you but it has helped my kids to have a more thankful attitude towards others. They see me making the effort to get a card out and it raises its level of importance in their minds.
Good for my friends
Good for my family
Good for my kids
Good for me
