You can sing that title like Destiny’s Child “Bills, Bills, Bills”. Let me get to the point before I go into a How-much-I-love-solo-Beyonce (or as my goddaughter calls her, “Panty Lady“) more than Destiny’s Child. Don’t get me wrong–the Superbowl comeback was awesome. But Sasha Fierce…that’s where it’s at.
I digressed anyway…OOPS.
Let’s talk about cards. They’re great to get. Birthdays. Christmas. Weddings. Normally, I hate to admit it, but I save them for a little while then usually toss them. I can’t be the only one who does this. Right? After the holidays have passed or the birthday party is over, they’re out with the gift wrap. The exception: our wedding cards.
I’ve got a bag of them (along with receipts, packing slips, etc.) and I don’t want to get rid of them because a lot of them are really special messages to David and I. Advice and sweet notes…you get the idea. But thus far, they’ve lived in that bag for almost 3 years. So I decided to do something about it.
BTW, this was a $2 DIY project (would be about $4 if you don’t have a hole-punch). You could also do this for all your families holiday cards–because those may be more worth saving.
Instructions are as simple as it looks:
- Sort Cards from the trash (trash meaning envelopes, packing slips, receipts)
- Throw out the trash you’ve been saving for several years. No returns or exchanges left to do!
- Hole-punch the corner of all the cards (some I left open if they were really tiny cards, others I left closed)
- Stick all the cards on the binder-clip (choosing some pretty or sentimental ones to go on the top)
- Fasten Clip-VOILA!
Perfect! Now we have a little flip-book of wedding cards that we can read through whenever we feel like it. So glad I held onto those for three years.
