Smarter Seasonal Spending Challenge Day 8: Save on Stamps

Posted by   + Show Post

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?

We spend about $40 and I really don't think that's too bad. We enjoy receiving the cards from friends and family as much as we like to send them out.

Yes, I send holiday cards. I don't mind spending the money on stamps. I am not a fan of ecards, I think they are too impersonal.

Last year we did. I took a pic of my kids and put it on construction paper and printed out a cute saying about family. And gave them out at Christmas. I didn't send them because I didn't want to crease them. I think I spent about $5 for the pics. I already had the paper and just had to print out the saying at home.

We send a few out to close friends and family with a few photos of the girls.

I only send a few holiday cards since postage costs so much.

We send out Christmas cards, but only to family members like aunts, uncles, and close cousins. That's it.
