SIMPLY throwing all Christmas cards into the bin unopened could save you up to four hours this Christmas, it has been claimed.
Time-saving expert Martin Bishop believes a million hours of festive fun could be gained nationally by putting cards straight in the recycling after squeezing them for possible money.
He said: “I hate to say ‘one weird trick’ but you take those cards and stick them in the shredder, like Santa does with the kids’ lists, and you’ll feel a real weight off your shoulders.
“Think of the time you’ll save buggering about opening them and putting them on a shelf.”
Bishop added: “You really don’t need to read Christmas cards, unless you especially like generic poems about robins and bells with a token greeting scribbled underneath. The ones hand-made by children or pensioners are especially poor.
“Although interestingly I did once get a card from my nan that had a racist drawing in it.”
