Tip #59: Thanksgiving will be here in a little over 2 weeks. How many times during that Thursday will you check your email? Will you leave your “ka-ching” on? What about during the dinner itself? Will you use any of that time to fret over post office issues, packing supplies you forgot to get — or worse (OMG), the dreaded one-day handling time? I say, “Bring on the cranberry sauce!” We all need a break. So prepare in advance. Put an auto-responder message in your My Messages wishing your buyer a happy holiday and telling them that you’ll be in touch the next day; do everything you can ahead of time; and block out some packing and shipping time for Friday morning (Black Friday). Then enjoy already!
