Getting a jump on next year

As you are taking down your Christmas decorations and dealing with the aftermath of all your festivities, here’s a tip to get you started on Christmas 2009:

Save this year’s greeting cards.

Why?  Because they’ll make perfect tags for your gifts next year.  You’ll save money and cut down on stuff going into landfills.

It doesn’t even take a Martha Stewart wannabee to do this.

Recycla is one of those people who does not have the scrapbooking gene, so she just cuts the backs off the cards and tapes or ties the fronts to gifts the next year. If you’re feeling more ambitious, check out this tutorial.  Super easy, right?

If you don’t feel like dealing with this project right now, stick all the cards in an envelope or bag and store them with your Christmas wrapping paper until you need them.
