September is a great time to browse the sales section at Current. Not only are all checks 15% off, but you can also get free shipping on a $40 order. In the past I’ve had a great time skimming their selection and stocking up on note cards as well as Christmas supplies.
A lot of the notecards and stationery currently marked down would make very inexpensive hostess gifts and stocking stuffers. Just look in the sidebar at the left for the sale.
