2. Pre-Black Friday: Evenly divide your wish lists among store departments for your team.

For example: Uncle Ted's in electronics, significant other has audio, niece is weaving through the photo department, and so on.

6. Recovery Weekend: Consume massive amounts of ThanksTurking Sandwiches.

The basics: turkey, cranberry sauce, and stuffing on sliced bread.

Optional: mashed potatoes, gravy, green bean casserole, sweet potatoes, etc.

9. Recovery Weekend: Talking about real hard.

Just settle into those blankets, watch some tube, maybe make another sandwich. You've got to get your strength up for Monday.

11. Cyber Monday Morning: Schedule meetings to secretly shop online with co-workers.

However, you probably won't have to worry about solicitors since you're at an office.

12. Cyber Monday Morning: Make your background a screenshot of windows you keep open while you work.

13. Cyber Monday Shopping: Ask co-workers outside the meeting for some favors.


In exchange for taking care of their wish lists, get them to keep the boss entertained, drop off a coffee pot, deliver mail, whatever keeps the distraction going.
