Works for Me Wednesday: Travel TipMay 17, 2006
This is one of those cool organizational things that occasionally causes me to be the object of ridicule… however, I still think it’s a darned good idea, so I’m going to share it. This is the first post I’ve written for Works-for-Me Wednesday! The concept of Works-for-Me Wednesday was started by Shannon over at Rocks in My Dryer (fast becoming one of my favorite Mommy Blogs).
When you go on vacation and you plan to send postcards to friends and family, take a few minutes before you leave to print out their names and addresses on labels. It will cut down on the amount of time you spend writing the postcards, and you won’t have to worry about packing (and potentially losing) your address book.
Also, since you know how many people you will be sending postcards to, buy as many postage-appropriate stamps as you will need before hand. This cuts back on time spent having to find a place that sells stamps and/or buying first class postage stamps for postcards (which can be mailed for less).
I have done this many times, most recently on our trip to Disney World in January. And I can say quite enthusiastically that this does indeed Work for Me!
