One thing I love to do is to stock up on greeting cards. I have a supply of sympathy, get well, congratulations and even birthday cards available any time I need them. It is just so great to walk to my basement and pull out a card and mail it without having to remember to stop by the store and pick one up.
American Greetings is currently offer 30 count Greeting Card Assortments for just $11 + free shipping. That makes each card cost only $0.37! This is definitely a great time to stock up!
