It is time to be updating our on the go letter writing – get ready, let’s go!
We have many options, I’m encouraging us to have a few basic items on hand to keep in the car. With March Madness 2023 underway this can be a fun project to be taking on in parallel!
I’m seeing an adorable Snail Mail Kit by the Paxton Press done on 5 x 7 size available over at Etsy for $22.00. It is for pen pals with “Mail these back and forth with an assortment of games and letter templates.”
In addition, our on-the-go letter writing can be as simple as my approach of On-the-go composition letters I blogged about previously (October 24, 2021). Below is one of the screen shots from the post.
Updating our on the GO letter writing – let’s go!
As far as key items I like to keep with me in my purse here is a list. It includes: a 5 x 7 small lined booklet so I can tear out a page. There are a few envelopes. I also have a few Forever first class stamps and postcard stamps. It is nice to have at least one International USPS stamp on hand. Next, a 6″ ruler clear. Also a highlighter and a variety of a few stickers.
Next, in the boot section between the driver and passenger seats I keep a role of good invisible scotch tape, a pen, And a similar set in the car along with scotch tape, small scissors, and pens.
Having postcard stamps on me came in handy last weekend when out of town. I was sending a few postcards and grateful to have the stamps already on me. It was a real treat discovering a gift shop that actually carried postcards of their venue!
Furthermore, I’m going ahead and am ordering a set of these blank postcards from busybeecraftsandmore on Etsy. The set of 25 sells for $5.75. If we add the $4.25 for shipping to me in U.S. it is $10 (before tax). I am envisioning myself writing “We are HERE!” on the front! I would in addition – write where “Here” is; this will be very helpful when cannot find an actual postcard at that location.
Think about what you can keep on hand, and it is always a great excuse to declare its the reason for having to go to the Dollar Tree for a visit – amazing what we can find there for a few dollars – have fun! See you back here next Sunday! Here’s to a great week ahead – especially with tomorrow being the first day of Spring, March 20, 2023! We can write our letters about the weather!
