    I love Jack Cards! I create my free master calendar there, select cards from independent designers, buy them online, and Jack Cards addresses them for me and sends reminders so I remember to get them in the mail on time. They’ll even handwrite a message and deliver them if I need quickest possible turnaround. See my independent review of Jack Cards here: http://bit.ly/AEhSVz.

    Thanks for all the great help getting organized!

    Just wanted to tell you how much I enjoyed this article and wanted to add my two cents:  My mother writes a person’s name and year they were born on a small Post-It, then affixes it to their special day on a her yearly calendar.  Every January, she removes said Post-Its and attaches them to a calendar for the coming year.  Keeps her busy (and off the streets 🙂 if nothing else!!  Now my brother, who lives across the country, has never remembered a birthday and/or anniversary.  So one Christmas, I gifted him with a calendar for the New Year and attached cards for every birthday, anniversary and holiday – complete with addresses and the correct postage.  (I even noted on the calendar when he should mail a card for fear it may not arrive on time.)  This took some planning the previous year since I imagined it would be difficult to acquire Valentine’s Day, St. Patrick’s Day, Easter, Mother’s Day, Father’s Day, Halloween and Thanksgiving cards mid-December.  My gift was well received and that year, he claimed the title of “Most Konsiderate Kid Ever”.  Alas, he had a good run but everyone still wonders what came over him and recalls those 12 months he was so thoughtful…

    Thanx for the tips!!
