My father passed away recently and we were getting cards from all over and from people that my brother and I weren't familar with. Instead of trying to keep envelope with the card, I just tore off the return address and taped it to the back of the card.
When I'm sending acknowledgements and thank you notes, I know exactly who and where to send it to. It gives me a bit of inspiration when writing the note because i have the card right with the address. Much later, when looking through the cards, I'll also have an idea of who the card came from instead of trying to figure out who 'Jean" is.

First and foremost, I am so very sorry for your loss! Thank you for sharing your idea! My daddy passed away 23 years ago this coming August 30th and I still have all of the cards of condolence. I kept them in their envelopes with notes I made on the envelopes but your idea is a really good one!
I forgot to mention that this is a great way to keep addresses current at Christmas time too!
Great idea, and very efficient.
