Clear the Clutter -Tip #2 Recycle Your Christmas and Holiday Cards

From Payne to Gain Organizing is presenting a daily tip in January - Get Organized Month. Follow full blog at www.frompaynetogainorganizing.com

Clearing up after Christmas and wondering what to do with the cards? Re-sharing my Facebook post from 10/1/12 about recycling your cards! 

I also keep some paper ones if the motifs are small and I can cut and use for toppers to my mason jars for gifts in a jar (i.e. 11/30 post Jen's Devilish Delish Seasoning Mix)  For the picture cards...I keep those in a photo box, and last year when the box was full I sorted them all out and sent several family and friends a package with 10+ years worth of  their cards - fun to see their kids grow up in a matter of moments :) 

See link for recycling info in post below.  From 10/1/12 Facebook: Today’s tip…do you have last year’s Christmas and other cards stacked up?  You can’t keep them all…Sure pull out the ones from grandparents, etc.  BUT don’t toss the rest…DONATE them!  See link below.  St. Jude Ranch will use them happily and you’ll feel great about moving a stack of clutter out of the house…That counter spot is now ready for a decorative pumpkin!
