It's great to show your appreciation for a gift with a Thank You card.  Here are some very budget friendly ways to make personalized Thank You cards.Christmas will be here soon. Right now, you are probably thinking about the presents you have purchased for your family. This is understandable. However, when the holiday is over, it’s nice to take a moment and say “thank you” to those who sent you, and your family, thoughtful gifts. Here are some creative, and budget-friendly, ways to make Thank You cards.

How to Save Money on Thank You Cards

Stamp It
Visit your local craft store, and pick out some study paper. It doesn’t have to be expensive, or fancy. Construction paper will do. Next, find a stamp to use as a decoration. You might need to pick up an ink pad, unless you already have one. Once you make this initial, small, investment, you will have everything you need to make dozens of personalized Thank You cards.

Stamp the card. Let it dry. Write a little note to the person who sent the gift. People who receive a hand made Thank You card will understand that it took you some extra time and effort to make a special card just for them.

Print It
Not everyone has extra time to spare. One solution is to print out some “ready to use” gift cards from the internet. Sending a Thank You card for anything other than a wedding gift is becoming a lost art. The person you send the card to will be pleasantly surprised by it and will know that you liked the gift.

Recycle and Scrapbook It
Are you a scrapbooker? Use those skills to make a creative Thank You card. Save some of the paper that the gift was wrapped in. Use up some of the decorative scrapbook paper that you have at home. Add in a photo of yourself wearing the gift, (or holding it). Smile! Write a little note, and you have a delightful, unique, Thank You card to send.

Get the Kids Involved
Teach your children the importance of sending a Thank You card. Kids that are old enough can grab a marker, and a piece of paper, and write “thank you” on it all by themselves. Take a photo, and send it to the relative that sent the gift to your child.

Babies can do this too! Mom or Dad can make a small “thank you” sign. Dress your baby in the clothing that grandma sent. Put the “thank you” card on his or her tummy, and take a picture. Adorable!

Good Tip: Saving money is important – especially if you have a lot of expenses like bills to pay, loans to pay off, and all the other things that drain your bank account. Figuring out a way to save money can feel tedious to some, and like a punishment to others. U.S. News suggests that you try one of these money saving challenges. The “No Eating Out for a Month” Challenge This one is self-explanatory. The goal is to avoid eating out for an entire month. This might be super easy for people who enjoy making meals at home. People who really enjoy dining out, or ordering food to be sent to their home, may struggle with this one. It’s worth a try because spending money on take-out is more expensive than buying groceries. The Pantry Challenge This one is a variation of the “No Eating Out for a Month” challenge. The goal is to use up all of your groceries before you buy more. It forces you to try and remember why you bought a food or beverage that you don’t know what to do with, and gives you the opportunity to find a way to use it. The one exemption to this challenge is the foods that have expired. Don’t eat them! Throw them in the trash. The “No Spend” Challenge Make a goal to avoid spending money during an entire weekend. The only exemption in this challenge is that you are allowed to pay bills. This challenge is interesting because it requires creativity. You must be creative and find workarounds for problems that you would typically solve by spending money. You may have a different outlook on spending after finishing this challenge.
