Was gonna send my wife a card yesterday. Know how much Papyrus wants for a blank card?

eight fucking dollars.

I can send flowers for 15.

So thank you, capitalism, for killing a lovely custom in its crib.

Yeah, those Red Cap Cards are not cheap either. A pack of 8 for $16. 😬

How do you send flowers for $15? Any time Ive ever tried to send flowers Ive never gotten away for under $30 for the shittiest flowers possible with all the fees and BS. Please share your secret.

Find the local shop and say "I want to deliver something."

My wife happens to be striking distance of Stadium Flowers. They charge $6 to deliver. So you buy $9 worth of flowers.

they do have really pretty & unique cards in Trader Joe's for $1. Just saying. :)

Yeah, but when one commutes around LA on a bicycle, one tries to buy things where one is, rather than making a special trip, and the Trader Joe's in Studio City is truly the 9th circle of hell.

Trader Joe's should deliver.
