Welcome to episode #7 of the To Do Lists of the Semi-Adult podcast where Rae and I talk about the struggle that is sending birthday cards. We’re really bad at it.
We both struggle significantly with getting birthday cards out on time or, you know, at all. Once I made a birthday card book that lasted oh, about, four months before I decided it was not the best way to remember birthdays. Rae has tried manila envelopes. Neither one really worked for us.
So here are new tips: keep all your supplies handy; keep your addresses on your phone on accessible on your phone while you’re standing in line at the post office; and set reminders on your phone. She also talked to Michael, who is really good at mail, and he said he adds birthdays to his regular to do list and sometimes sets email reminders. Do you guys have any tips?
We also talked about other organizational systems, like what are you supposed to do with magazine articles you like and tear out and save. Rae suggested Blake Lively’s method which is saving them all in inspiration binders.
Rae’s currently reading Vampires in the Lemon Grove, and she talks about the book’s decorating inspiration over at her blog. I made Shutterbean’s sriracha chicken recently and it was incredible. (Books are affiliate links.)
