Cheat Sheet: Send Those Thank-You Notes

If you don't want snippy comments from family and friends, toss those thank-you notes in the mail within two months of your wedding. Set a goal (like 10 a night) and fire ’em off during the commercial breaks of your favorite shows. Divvy up the project with your spouse (say, he does his buddies and his side of the family and you do yours) and the job will be half as daunting. But if one of you refuses to pick up a pen, still agree that you’ll each sign your names on every card. Hint: Print off address and return address labels on your computer if you can -- it’s neater and will save you major carpal tunnel.
