Mother’s Day: Card Buying Process

Ever want to know the best way to pick out a card on Mother’s Day?  Well…you’re welcome:

1) Half-read every card that applies to your intended audience: Mom/Grandma/etc.

2) Hold on to a few that are the least chessy and actually read them fully. 

And for goodness sake, don’t forget the envelope!  With all the weird shaped cards today, it’ll just make that trip to RiteAid so much easier.


3) With a sigh, put all the cards you selected back on the shelf and repeat steps 1 & 2 at least once. 

If you can’t remember where they were, just put them anywhere.  I’m sure no one would mind.  Oh, and make sure you stand right in front of the main selections of cards as you do this.  This is your time, your moment, to impress your dear mother (with a card that’ll end up in the trash by the next day), don’t let anyone take that away from you!

4) Turn each card around and look at the price stamped on the back. 

Take a minute to digest the $5+ price stamp.

5) Put them all back.

6) If there is a 99 cent section, move over there and repeat steps 1 & 2. 

If not, find a Dollar Tree and repeat steps 1 & 2.  If neither of these apply…well, you’re S.O.L and I hope you only have to buy for one parent.  You haven’t even gotten to the actual present yet!

Remember the longer you take to pick a card for your mom/grandma/etc, the more you love her.
