Ready for a quick win? A tiny summer project is cleaning out your greeting card file. And, if you have extra cards to share you can donate greeting cards for charity.
Place all the cards on a table. Sort them into categories. Check if you need to add any to your collection. If so, add those to your shopping list. Flip through the cards in each category. Are they all in good condition? Do you like them? Will you use them? If the answer is no, recycle them or donate them.
I use this organizer box to keep all my greeting cards sorted and stored away neatly. It is large enough to fit my oversize cards. No more misplaced envelopes. No more crunched card corners.
It is the perfect time of year to sort through your cards. Before buying new ones, use up the ones you have on hand for upcoming events. If there are any you can donate, this is what you can do with greetings cards:
Mail new or used cards (front only – no envelope) to: St. Jude’s Ranch for Children, 100 St. Jude’s St., Boulder City, NV 89005.
If that will not work for you, this is what else you can do to share your greeting cards today:
- Gift them to a local day care center for the children to use in crafts.
- Check with a local house of worship, sometimes they leave them out for anyone who needs them.
- See if a local senior center might like them for residents to use.
