A Tip from "The Frugal Guru" - Creating Personalized Postcards

Do you feel badly about throwing away artwork that your children bring home from school?  It's fun to look at, but there is only so much room on the refrigerator door!  Try this frugal tip: When you are finished displaying the artwork for all your friends to see, create postcards that show off your child's masterpiece!  Then these cards can be used as thank you notes to teachers, friends, and family members.  Not only will they be unique and thoughtful, but they are also thrifty!  Just take a piece of heavy-stock paper, cut it to the size of a postcard, and use a glue stick to apply the artwork to the paper.  For the heavy-stock paper, think about cutting up an old manilla folder or using an index thrifty about it!  Plus, since the end product is a postcard, you can mail it for $0.29 instead of $0.44.  It may not seem like big savings to you, but the thriftier you become, the more you'll appreciate it :)
