Don't Throw Away Holiday Cards

We tend to fight over who gets to check the mail during the magical month of December.  Well honestly I guess no one is competing except for me, but if Hubby dares to pick up the key to check the mail, I tend to tackle him and run out there myself.  I love getting Holiday Cards, sue me!  Anyway, when I was growing up, we always threw them away after New Year's and then later in life when I was an adult, one Christmas it occurred to me how fun it would be have been able to look back at all the cards my parents got when I was a kid. 

For about three years now, I have saved the Holiday Cards instead of throwing them away.  I put them with our photo albums and mementos and I'm so glad to have these cards.  It's so fun to look at kids as they grow up, as babies are born, and especially to read the Holiday letters.  It's like having old photo albums of all your friends and family!  So this year, do yourself a favor and get a manilla envelope and label it and load up all those Holiday Cards.  I bet you'll thank yourself later in life!
