Earlier this week I realized I hadn’t written my Christmas thank yous, and hadn’t noticed anyone else writing theirs, either. So, I created a thank you note station. I set out everything our family members would need to complete the task of writing thank you notes: a variety of notecards, our return address stamp, pens, stamps and also a list of addresses for people who gave us gifts.

The thank you note station has helped me in two ways: it simplified the note writing process by having everything in one place and it created an obvious reminder to everyone to get them done. A couple of times a day I’m seeing a new note added to the outgoing pile of mail. In a few days I might have to give Last Call to hurry up the process so I can clean up the table, but for now I’m happy with our progress.

Sometimes I share my posts at these link parties.

  1. I love the little car cards! We actually need to replenish our thank you card supplies!

      Thanks, Eileen! I need to do the opposite of replenishing – I need to use them up! You can see in the photo from this post that there are cards from my childhood in this collection. Yikes…

    Smart lady! That’s what I need to do!

      Thanks, Susan. Since two of my kids are technically adults, I don’t force them to write thank you notes anymore. I thought if I had everything set up like this, it might make it convenient for them. Hey, I’ll do anything I can do to make it easier to make good choices. :)
