Christmas Cards Everywhere?

What do you do with the cards you get every year for the holidays? I try to put them out each year on out entertainment center as decorations but then they go into a shoebox. Never see them again.

  • You could scrapbook them. Just a simple photo album that would protect them and let you look at them from past years. If you really like t he artwork on some of them you could frame them and show them off during the holidays.

  • We have louvered doors to our laundry area, so they fit nicely there. I take them down and store them with the Christmas decorations so I can look at them the next year, then I put them in the recycling.

  • I read them, send thank you cards to the people who sent them, maybe showcase a few that are really meaningful, and then just throw them away. There's no point in holding on to something forever, unless it's something my children have made, then it's going to be buried with me! lol

  • I read them, hang them on my fridge, or set them out just for a few weeks.. and then throw them out. I keep the pictures every year however, thats what I save

  • I showcase them around the French doors with garland. I save the photos and nice cards for scrapbooking.
