I write to our Compassion child regularly. Sometimes, instead of writing her a message through their online site, I like to send a physical card. If a Christmas card does not have writing on the front cover, I cut the card in half, write a little note for Anabel and put a postcard stamp on it to send it off. This way, not only do I get to enjoy the postcard for some weeks, our Compassion child is able to enjoy it as well.
**Please note that in order to use a postcard stamp, the card cannot be any larger than 4.25" x 6".
We keep our Christmas decorating to a minimum, but I like having a few things dispersed throughout the house. Picture frames are available for $0.10-$0.50/each at flea markets and garage sales. When I find one that I like, I snatch it up and display the holiday cards in the picture frame. The great part is, on the “Happy Holidays” cards, I can leave them out until February before putting them away for the season (or taking them out and using as post cards for next year!)

I found a website that shows how one person recycles their Christmas cards into gift tags for the next year! What a great money-saving idea.

Do you recycle the gift cards you receive each year?
