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 www.thankfulmail.co

The best advice my dad gave me: Sareswari, Next Generation Digital Magazine


"The best thing my dad taught me was do not follow or beg any of your friends to join you, but be the best in whatever you are doing, and people will come follow you. I was a shy kid and didn't have many friends in school. I used to come home saying that no one wanted to be friends with me and that was what my dad told me. From that day onward, I tried to do everything better, always giving my 100% and it came true. When I got rank in class, suddenly everyone wanted to be my friend. It's always my mantra until today."
