While you're on the hunt for Christmas cards this year, why not get your card shopping done for the whole year! The maid service experts at MOLLY MAID, who are also experts at organizing just about anything, suggest this easy, time-efficient shopping trick: create a chart of the cards you need so you can be well prepared once you get to the store.

  1. List each month across the top of a piece of paper.
  2. Down the side of the paper, write down all the occasions you purchase cards for (birthdays, anniversaries, holidays, etc.)
  3. Include names of your friends and family beside each occasion and under the particular month.
  4. Bring this chart with you so you can make sure you've covered all the cards you need for the entire year and never have to scramble last minute ever again.

Many card stores offer 'buy one, get one' sales around special occasions so keep your eyes open for these to save some money!
