What do you think of Thank You letters? When do you deem them important to send out?
I usually send out a Thank You card when I receive gifts like for a Wedding, Birth of a Baby, or Birthday. I don't send Thank You cards at Christmas or Hannukah or Anniversaries.
Before I moved last month, I was posting a lot of items on Craigslist, some for free. In today's mail, I received a Thank You card from one of the ladies who received a free ceramic planting pot. I could have probably gotten $5 for it, but for me, it wasn't worth the hassel of setting up appts with potential buyers for only $5, so I listed it for free.
I got tons of emails for it in under 5 minutes. It's like people scope out Craigslist for the keyword "FREE" and just bounce when they see it.
This lady, Josephine, was the first to respond, so I told her she had an hour to show up or I was giving it to the next person in line. She showed up with barely 2 minutes to spare!
Never, in a million years, did I expect to receive a Thank You card from her showing her appreciation! It kinda melted my heart. We sometimes forget how far a little personal mail can go, so instead of emails, I'm going to continue to hand-write my Thank You cards when I receive gifts.
