I Believe in Snail Mail

Hallmark Cards at Walmart, Tanvii.com

I am not empty words. I rant about the impersonal wishes on Facebook, because I do things differently myself. If you know me IRL (in real life) then I am certain that you would have received a letter, card, postcard or some form of snail mail from me, sometimes for absolutely no reason. Ever since I was a kid, I have sent out cards to my cousins and family on their birthdays and anniversary no matter how far away they lived. I am proud to say that I have continued that habit way into my thirties too. The only catch is, that now I mail cards to those who try and keep in touch with me on regular basis. I call that time and energy management. Anyhoo, since I love hand-written-everything, I also love sending cards with a personal note and lots of love.

The organized (and OCD) person that I am, I have a little notebook with all the anniversaries and birthday listed by the month ('coz a girl needs a little help remembering dates every once in a while). Beginning of every year, I stock up on greeting cards for the whole year. Also, as one grows older, people in your life double and you need to starting budgeting for everything. 

Once I have the cards for the whole year, I organize them in my greeting card organizer (yes! I have THAT too) which helps me organize them by the month. Then in the first week of every month I write the cards for the coming weeks and put them in post. Voila! mission accomplished. 

It always brings a smile on my face when I receive cards in mail, and I can only hope that it must bring a smile to my friends and family too. Wouldn't you like to go back to old school ways to sending wishes and spreading love?

  2. I share your enthusiasm for real mail. It's so much fun to send and receive. Letters have been disappearing in our mailboxes and when one appears among bills and ads, we dance with joy. Just yesterday I ordered new stationary with my picture on it. Good post.

  3. There's something so much more personal about receiving snail mail in the information age. The extra time and planning that it requires just shows that someone is thinking about you days before your birthday. #client

  4. Your post reminds me of my drawer full of birthday cards that I received over the years when I was in school. The last card would probably be at least ten years old, given how people don't really give each birthday cards anymore. It would be lovely to receive one, though - and such a surprise! :)
