Smarter Seasonal Spending Challenge Day 8: Save on Stamps

Does your family send out holiday cards? Take time to go through the list of everyone you send them to. When's the last time you updated that list? If you're really looking to save, consider an e-card this year or send an email with a family update and photos. If you really want to send out cards, buy a book of stamps each week from now until the holidays to spread out the cost. 


Do you send holiday cards? How much do you spend on it each year?

I don't have a huge list, and I do prefer to send the cards vs. the more impersonal e-cards.  I spend maybe $15 a year on Christmas cards (buying AND sending.)

I pass out cards at parties often. I hate having to buy stamps. I only buy them if I know we won't be seeing the person.

 I send Christmas Cards.   I keep track of who I send to and who sends me one.   Every year I don't send any to the people that don't send me one back the year before.   I buy 2 books of stamps for Christmas cards each year.

We only send cards out to the grandparents, and usually the kids make them by hand. We do include pictures. :)
