So every year I’m trying to get my Christmas cards done and I sit down with a cup of hot chocolate and put a holiday DVD in. Then I remember, I want to use a special pen. Then, I forget to get the seals for the envelopes. Next, it’s the address labels. I’ve also been known to not count my supplies ahead of time and have to place an order and wait for it to arrive before finishing this process. What started as relaxing holiday evening becomes a slightly stressful, lengthy process.
This year I decided to make it easier on myself. I dug through my office supplies and fond a small desk organizer that came from Staples a few years ago.
I gathered my supplies:
Gold and silver markers
Stamps and ink pads
I just simply assembled the items into the organizer and it was ready to go! It didn’t cost me anything as I had the organizer on hand. However, a silver ware tray from the dollar store would also work well. If you wanted to get a desk organizer, this one at Staples is about $10 and would fit the bill just fine.
This took me about 5 minutes total and that time investment will save me more than that and frustration when I’m ready to sent out my cards.
