A client of mine loves to give gifts and send greeting cards to friends and family. She had been keeping her cards in several baskets but they were not in any order. After sorting the cards into similar categories: birthday, holiday, sympathy and so on, and purging some cards that she no longer cared for (especially the free cards sent by charitable organizations as a thank you for your donation) we needed a way to organize the cards.
The volume of cards was considerable so the card storage boxes that can be purchased at Hallmark would not cut it. My client already had a two-drawer filing cabinet in her bedroom that was not being utilized. After emptying the filing cabinet, we madefile tabs with her categories and put the cards in the hanging files. This makes it much easier for her to see the collection she has and choose a card to send.
This project was very simple and the feedback I have received is that it is working great. I couldn’t ask for better!
