{Organize} Cards


For this project, I grabbed a stack of cards I already had and my card organizer. About 30 minutes later, I had chosen cards and written at least their first name on the card and filed them by month. Of course, I still need a few cards to finish things off - but what a great start to have most of the cards for the year organized.

Whew! Good feeling, small investment of time. Love that!

Are you organizing today?

That is a great idea! Do you make your cards as well?

Great idea!

I am getting ready for my daughter's birthday party on Sat so there's lots of cleaning an organizing going on!

I will organize cards for the month, but never thought to do it for the year. I love, love, love this idea! Sometimes the month sneaks up on me and I have to scramble to get the cards done.

Enjoy your day!

I've done this other years and need to do it again! I organized a small drawer in the kitchen this morning which is great. What is not so great is that Toddler Girl now knows where the Sharpies are kept and can somehow reach them. :-( So either I find another home for them or get more baby-proofing supplies!

Oh, how I wish I was that organized with my cards! They really need some attention. Thank you for the inspiration, and great job!

You have a hefty stack of cards to choose from! Do you buy specific cards in advance or pull from an assortment? I had a card organizer years ago, but didn't do it faithfully. Everyone loves to get a handwritten greeting.

Monica, do you use a certain greeting card container to keep cards filed or a notebook? Thanks for the great ideas.

I don't know if this is where your cards are from, but I really love Dayspring's Card Club! I've gotten such a good variety over the last year, and now have a card for 'most any occasion. Even my husband is happy with it- we store them in one of these, and I labeled some hanging files with different topics such as encouragement, prayer, birthday, friendship, etc.

It really helps me *want* to send a card, when I know not only do I have some to choose from, but I know right where they are! :)

Next up? Organize cards for the year! :) Thank you for the inspiration!
