tip of the week (9/27/2009)

September 27 – October 3, 2009 this week’s "tip of the week" was sent from Hollie, from Jamestown, MI

Hollie writes: “I started this last year. I collect email addresses for the people on my Christmas card list. By Christmas I had half of them.

Come Christmas, I wrote a nice Christmas letter with pictures attached and sent it to all these people instead of paper cards. Almost everyone liked the idea and, at least half of those used email this year. Whether they wrote a letter or sent an email card from one of the many places on line, it certainly lessened the amount of paper coming in. The cards we did receive will become package tags next year.

Savings? Cost of cards, stamps, paper and ink to print my Christmas letter and less trees being cut down to make that paper.

It also helps to ensure the cards make it to the recipients before Christmas. Sent electronically, the greeting is nearly immediate.”
