Normally I don’t like to buy things for ‘just in case’. But blank cards are great to have on hand.
I first bought a pack of blank cards when I became a mother. So many people offered help and gave us their old toys and baby clothes. I wanted to be able to write each person a thank-you note, so it was great to have a supply of these. Often I would use the cards as birthday cards too, as I was so bad at remembering birthdays in those sleep-deprived days.
That’s one reason why it’s good to get cards that are blank inside, rather than ‘Thank You’ cards. That way, you can use them to dash off a quick note to a friend too. If you keep a few stamps in your purse, then all you need to do is scribble a note, put a stamp on it and drop it in your nearest post box.
