White Greeting Card Organizer from the Container StoreSeveral times a year you will find me in the greeting card aisle at Target tearing up over the cards. I typically air on the side of funny cards, but sometimes when picking out a card for my parents, I will start reading the cheesier ones and then... the waterworks begin.  I actually love to card shop so I routinely pause in the card aisle in Target and drugstore year-round.  Sometimes I will spot the perfect card for someone whose birthday is months away, so I've had to come up with an organizing system for keeping those cards fresh until it's appropriate to mail them.

Then there are the cards I want to archive after receiving. These are the really specials cards I know I want to save and savor for years to come. They are typically from someone really special to me and are handwritten. I don't want to just toss those in a drawer so I did some research and came up with the best way to store cards.

Hello, I think your website might be having browser compatibility issues.
When I look at your website in Chrome, it looks fine but when opening in Internet Explorer,
it has some overlapping. I just wanted to give you a quick heads up!
Other then that, terrific blog!

Hi Elizabeth! I love all of your posts about organizing, and am an avid follower. I work at a company called Cozi, most known for organizing the chaos of family life with a shared family calendar, address book, shopping lists and more.
We recently came out with a new feature, Cozi Contacts, that allows families to organize their address book in one place. With this feature, we have various tips and tricks for organizing the chaos of creating and sending holiday cards. I’d love to share some of these with you!

I hope to hear from you soon.
