4.49 per card? Outrageous! Favourite Find #2

Over the years I have watched my mom spend up to $5 for a card. I think it is incredibly special and sweet that she still spends time finding the perfect card for each and every person, but it is incredibly expensive in the long run.

My colleague Lara told me that she had once bought a box of Hallmark cards while at Costco. She showed me the cards she purchased and I was amazed and planned a trip to Costco. When I arrived the Hallmark card packs were no longer being sold, but I was able to get an awesome 30 pack of variety cards for $18.99. My favourite part of this purchase is the folio that the cards came in, which organizes the cards by occasion. I will continue to use the folio long after I have used the original 30 cards.

This is the folio that the cards came in.
The magnetic cover ensures it stays closed.

Here you can see the dividers by occasion, including:
Children's Birthday, General Birthday, Sympathy etc.

Here are a few of the handmade cards that were included.

My advice: The next time you are at Costco, pick-up a box of 30 cards. This way you won't have to worry about spending $4.49 for a card for a very long time.

Send a card to a friend for no reason. It will make you both smile.
