If you’re sending Christmas cards to a lot of people, it can quickly add up. Spending $3-4 on each card can lead to spending hundreds on cards alone.
That doesn’t mean you have to stop sending cards. There are several ways to save money on Christmas cards. Let’s take a closer look.
Buy in Bulk
Firs things first. It can be nice to spend a bit more money on cards for some people, but when you’re talking about coworkers, neighbors, the mailman, etc cards that are 10 for $1 are more than acceptable.
You will save so much money buying cards in bulk. You can purchase boxes that have all the same design or have several different ones.
You want to compare prices to make sure that your cards are the best price. For example, you might find 10 cards for $1 at one store and another have 40 cards for three-dollars.
Compare the quality and prices to make sure you’re getting the best bang for your buck.
Check the Dollar Tree
The Dollar Tree is a great place to buy Christmas cards. You can buy them in bulk or you can buy individual cards for two for a dollar. They also have really nice handmade cards for $1 each. Regardless of what you purchase, you’ll save a lot of money.
Send Some Electronic Cards
Another great way to save money is to send electronic cards. There are so many websites that will let you send cards for free. This is great for online friends and those that you hardly speak to anymore. Why spend money when you don’t have to?
Deliver in Person
Skip the stamps and deliver as many cards as you can in person. This will save you so much money. There’s simply no reason to mail Christmas cards to people you see on a regular basis.
Stock Up for Next Year
Last, but not least, buy Christmas cards for next year. You can find Christmas cards for as little as $0.10 per pack after the holidays. This is the time to stock up and the best way to save money.
You’ll even be able to find really nice packs of cards that were normally really expensive for very little.
You don’t have to spend a fortune on Christmas cards. There are so many ways to save money. Whether you buy in bulk or stock up for next year, you can save money on Christmas cards.
