Over the past couple of months I have been participating in a revolution. Yes, I am a revolutionist…of snail mail. You know, letters. Not junk mail or bills but letters. Forget emails people, they are so 90’s. It’s all about the hand-lettered, decorative envelopes with a little letter of getting to know you enclosed. I found an awesome community of pen pals via Instagram and through the wonderful ladies at the Letter Writers Alliance.
If I had to choose one particular person who personifies the elegance of handwritten goodness, it would have to be Rin at PaperedThoughts. I am happy to say that I am going to be a part of her && A Happy New Year – A Letter Exchange Project. So excited!! Photos will posted when my recipient has received her letter. I don’t want to ruin the goodness for her!!
Keep your eyes out for my instagram photos of my incoming and outgoing snail mail
Join the revolution!
My piggy bank Pin Money yielded a total of $35.41 this time around. I generally take my coins to a Coinstar at my local grocery store. They now have an option of giving you a “gift card” instead of cash. I decided to go with Amazon for my gift card. Well, you get a receipt, with a code, not an actual “gift card”. It was perfect choice. I was able to get four books, a slick writer (it’s a pen that allows you to write on slick surfaces like washi tape or photos) and a Yoga exercise video. Score!
So using my cash envelopes each month and saving the coins gives me about $10.00 per month. Not bad little batch of spending money.
