When I worked at the Hallmark store shoppers would come in and buy piles and piles of cards at once. We would smile and comment on their stack and most of time they would say they love to stock up for the next few months or even year. So smart! If you’re like me you go to the store for the one card you need each time.
Did you know that Hallmark cards are conveniently at Walmart? While you are shopping for your groceries or other items you can run down the Hallmark aisle and grab what you need. And guess what? It is so easy to stock up because they sell Hallmark cards starting at 47 cents! YES!!
You should have seen the smile on my face as I was reading all the cute cards and adding them to my cart. My boys thought I was crazy buying all the birthday cards for the rest of the year, but I was so happy! I love love love all the fun colored envelopes! Not only are these a fantastic price and are my favorite brand of cards (do you always flip the card around when you receive one to see if it is Hallmark like I do?!), but I will be organized and ready the next time a birthday rolls around.
It happened to be my neighbor’s birthday this month and I wanted to acknowledge it. Simply and inexpensively, just to show her I’m thinking about her on her day. I headed over to Walmart’s bakery and picked out a single cupcake. I matched it with a cupcake 47 cent card and voila I had a little gift that brought on a huge grin.
It made me think that I could do this on ANY day to touch a person I care about.
One more thing I want to show you. It’s my Card Planner (also Hallmark brand!) where I keep track of everyone’s birthdays. It has a pocket in each month where you can store your cards ahead. SEE, I actually had the organization idea planned. I just never bought cards ahead. Well, those days are over. The Hallmark cards starting at 47 cents are the new me. I’ll be ready!
Are you organized with your cards? Do you stock up?
