No! It's not even close to the new Christmas season as I compose this article. But, I did say to stop sending ALL greeting cards. So, what am I the Grinch Who Stole Christmas . . . and Birthdays, Anniversaries, Thanksgiving, Mother's Day, Father's Day, etc.? No! I'm not. I'm simply the guy helping you to simplify your life and, while you're at it, be more frugal and find better uses for your hard earned money.
This IS the 21st Century the last time I checked. The Internet has been in full force for the past 20+ years. Email has all but replaced handwritten and even typed letters not only in our personal lives, but our business lives as well. In most cases, a “digital signature” now holds the same weight as a hand signed document. Schools, much to my dismay, have stopped teaching cursive handwriting in many places with more following suit. Our lives are busier and more complex than they've ever been. Fewer and fewer people have wired phones in their homes and more adopt wireless communication everyday. In case you haven't looked, the “Brave New World” is upon us.
So, why are you, if you haven't already made the switch, still back in the 20th Century?
