Best purchase under $100: Thank You cards

What have you bought recently for under $100 that has changed your life (or at least enhanced it)? In our latest blog series, Best Purchase Under $100, we put the question out there, and received some great answers. This week Karl Eastring shares his favourite purchase, which resulted in him starting a business in this area called Thankfulmail. 

“One of the most transformative experiences for me has been writing ‘Thank You’ cards on regular basis. It’s such a simple thing to do, yet even science shows that expressing gratitude to people leads to happiness & higher life satisfaction. It’s not only making you feel better, but it also makes someone’s day to receive a handwritten gratitude card in their mailbox. It has started so many beautiful conversations with both my family and total strangers. Thankfulmail has helped me to build the habit of gratitude by delivering artisan ‘Thank You’ card sets on monthly basis at a cost from 6 USD.” Learn more about Karl’s business at
