Christmas card shopping Myth #3: You can’t afford cards for everybody on your list

We know, the cards are sooo tempting, but your mailing list is sooo long that you can’t afford to send one of these fun cards to everyone. But we have a few tricks up our sleeve to solve this dilemma. Here are a few ways to trim your budget without trimming your mailing list.

  1. Send 2 different holiday cards: splurge on the card for close friends who live nearby, and send a different card to those who live far away (or at least won’t be comparing cards over the holidays). Or choose a card with room for newsy details to send to those you haven’t seen in a while, and just photos for those you see often.
