WFMW: Storing Cards You Receive
Throughout the year cards arrive in the mail for special occasions. I have never been able to bring myself to throw them away and used to simply throw them in a big box in my closet. Every now and then I would rifle through the box reading some of the cards and looking at signatures and special notes written inside. But I always found myself wondering what year I got that card and if there was a better way of storing them.
One day I was walking through an office supply store and I saw something that made me immediately think of my stash of cards. It was a 26 section file folder.
I started with my Christmas cards filing them away using one folder per year. When Princess was born I bought another on just for her. It will be able to hold all the cards she gets for Baptism, birthdays, Easter, Halloween from birth all the way through college. It is really great being able to flip through the Christmas cards, see photo cards of friends and family and know when that picture was taken.
Using a file folder to store cards works for me. For more Works-for-Me-Wednesday tips visit Shannon at Rocks in My Dryer.
