So I claim anyway. I am on an orgainzing binge, and I could use some ideas and inspiration. First up, my address book. Do you use a paper address book anymore? I am a BIG note taking person, so if you are in my address book, I am likely to have your birthday, things I know you like, kids names, etc…not exactly palm-friendly details. So I have come up with a few options:
- A looseleaf Binder – A pretty one of course, pretty A-Z tabs, college-ruled…the benefit to this is the ability to just tear out a page when someone moves, and LOTS of room for all the details that make my heart swell.
- A rolodex – especially if I can make one like Carrie’s Idea Rolodex – I bought mine, but have yet to do anything with it. I am still holding out for using it as Carrie intended – an idea rolodex. I just forget my ideas!
an organizer/filofax – If I had the extra $$ for this pretty one (in pink of course), i would get it in a heartbeat. An organizer was the option used by a couple of my twitter friends. I am a junkie for paper anything, and I could spend hours in front of the organizer aisle over at Staples. The biggest benefit to this is it can be portable. Although my bag is big enough to put any of these into it, this would be practical for that reason.
Ok, now it’s your turn – how do you organize your addresses? Or do you have a shoebox full of envelopes with return addresses you MIGHT need? One of my resolutions for NEXT year (don’t laugh!) is to write/send more SNAIL MAIL. I love getting creative packages/mail, and I LOVE stationery, AND I owe a couple of people some GREAT ones.
PS – speaking of Homemaking, there is a great Apron giveaway starting today over at the Apronista. Black, white & red? SWOON!
