More and more, letter writing is being replaced by quicker means of communication. But a handwritten letter still carries a personal, intimate touch that can't be captured in an e-mail or even a phone call. For those occasions when you need to write a letter, keeping all the necessary supplies in one place lets you fully concentrate on the task at hand.
Find a simple basket that will hold all your supplies. Place everything that you might need for your correspondence, including pens, paper, stamps, thank-you cards, and postcards, into the basket, and keep it within easy reach.
