Never miss a loved one's birthday again

Are you like me, with so much on the go that you find you forget things if you don't have it written in a day planner? Ever forgotten to send Aunt Sadie a birthday card, and then felt like a real heel because she never ever forgets yours?

Well I was just checking out a site called
Card-List.com and they help you out on those little birthday tasks. What you do there is sign up, and then enter all the birthday dates for your loved ones. You purchase the cards directly from them, for as little as $4.00 per card. About a week before your loved one's birthday, you'll receive the card you picked out for them, already stamped and addressed. All you have to do is write your personal note in the card and pop it back in the mail. Aunt Sadie will receive her card be so happy that you remembered her this year!

I think this is a great idea for busy people. You can do all your card shopping all at once, instead of one at time. Face it, if you're like me, you get stuck in the card aisle for much longer than you need to be, because you'll see a card that is perfect for this person, or that person, all while you're looking for a card for someone else. And if you're also like me, you'll end up buying those other cards, and put them away "safely", only to completely forget that you already have a card when those other birthdays come up. This way, you pick out the perfect cards for your friends and family, and you don't have to worry about forgetting or misplacing them. They'll be in the mail when you need them! Sounds pretty foolproof to me!
