|Carolyn makes a holiday return at REI in Ann Arbor, Michigan.|
- When you are ready, pack away holiday decorations in a manner that you would like to find them when it is time to decorate again.
- Have you sent thank you notes for gifts received? Remember, done is better than perfect. So if you can only muster an e-mail thank you, that is better than no thank you at all.
- Did you travel over the holidays? If so, empty and pack away the luggage now.
- If you have received gifts over the holidays, make sure each and every one of them has a home. Return (or thoughtfully re-gift) any items that were not just right and be sure that gift cards/certificates do not get lost in the shuffle.
