    I went into tesco today, as i wanted to get a mothers day card for my mum and my MIL.

    They ranged from £3.50 to £5.50....:shock: They werent even what i would call nice cards, they were just normal.

    I think its absolutely rediculous that they can charge that much for a box standard card!!

    I earn 6.62 an hour, i'll be fooked if im paying nearly an hours wage on a card.

    :growlmad:

    I go to those cheapie card places now like Card Factory because I actually really like the cards there. £1.39 for a mothers day card was what I paid and £1.69 for my hubby's for his mum. 89p each for two granny cards and 69p for a beautiful little gift box . I used to go to Paperchase for all my cards and I do love it in there but I just can't afford it now. Tesco is a lot more expensive for cards than Asda. Sainsbury's are lovely though and I adore M&S for cards but they're not exactly reasonable.
