Budget wedding thank you notes: Postcards save postage

See also

I needed to send out a lot of thank you notes after my wedding. To save money, I decided to send out postcards; the stamps cost 28 cents each as opposed to 44 cents, adding up to a considerable savings.

There are many places you an find postcards inexpensively. One of the best places I have found for stationary is Dollar Tree and other dollar or bargain retailers, both local shops and national chains. The Dollar Zone in Traverse City, Michigan (located next to K-Mart in the Cherryland Plaza on South Airport Road) is where I came across these fabulous tins of love postcards. Each tin contains 30 postcards in 15 different designs, each featuring a cute cartoon and a sentiment about what love is.

Brand new, these postcards retailed at $14.95 per tin. On, I managed to find a few sets starting in the $4 to $5 range. However, Dollar Zone had a shelf overflowing with them for just $2 per tin! I'm sending approximately 90 thank you cards, which comes out to a total savings of $53.25!!

Have you seen any other great deals on stationary in West Michigan or Northern Michigan? Tell us about them!
