    Leftover Christmas Cards

    Every year I buy new Christmas Cards, and every year I have leftovers. I was wondering if any of you send out these leftover cards in future years? I think I will do that next year. I tend to date the boxes, so I will send out some from several years ago first. It seems a waste to toss them out, and does anyone really know if it's a card from the past? They don't look old. What do you do with leftover cards?

    I save them. 2 years ago I did my entire list from leftover cards. I bet I still have about 30 left.

    I save them and send them -- no one remembers which card they received from whom! Why waste the money?

    We also repeat as necessary.

    I use them up too.

    I send very few cards, so I always have leftovers.

    This year I weeded through the stash and those I didn't really like, I packaged up and took to Goodwill. Hopefully someone else will love them and use them up.

    I trade my leftover cards with friends, so next year they send my leftover cards to their list and I can send out their leftover cards to my list..

    I always use my leftover cards before I buy new ones. I'm sure that after a year no one will remember which one I sent the year before. I know I wouldn't.

    Thanks everyone. I'm glad to see it's being done. It's such a waste not to use them up.
