'Tis the Season to Start Thinking About Those Cards....

Last year was the FIRST year I managed to get out any holiday cards for my family. The sad thing is, however, that we didn't mail them until way after New Year's.. making it look like an afterthought, instead of a carefully planned activity. This year, I'm determined to appear a bit more put together by ordering my cards now (or at least in a few weeks.)

When do you start thinking about holiday cards? What is the best time to mail them out? Do you do it before or after Christmas? Do you even mail out cards?

If you're like me, you'll need to start budgeting for those cards NOW. After all, postage stamps have gotten quite expensive!
