A Tip for Sending Holiday Greetings

Before I started Skeese Greets I either bought really cool holiday cards to send to family and friends, or made some of my own. Either way I would end up with extras that would hang around until the next year. I still liked the cards from the year before and still wanted to use the cards, but I asked myself, "Who got this one last year?"

You see, I would buy several boxes of different styles of cards. I'd have one set of 10 with a snowflake and one set of 10 with a dog wearing a Santa's hat. But I couldn't remember if my Aunt Patty got the one with the dog the year before and I wouldn't want her to get the same one again.

My solution - only buy one style of card per year. Yes, this might feel kind of boring and it might not agree with your shopping habits, but trust me - it makes the holiday season easier. Unless you're some kind of super star organizer, you're not going to remember which card you sent to each person. This way, the only thing you'll have to remember is what card you sent everyone the year before. (save one, mark the year and place it somewhere you'll remember next Nov/Dec.)

Have any tips of your own? I'd love to hear them!
