Last week I wrote about the importance of sending hand written notes to people. This week we will look into how you organize your addresses, so they are at your fingertips when you go to send that sweet and thoughtful note.
I brainstormed ways people store their addresses today. I tried to capture them all in one picture:
The illustration above is of my various ways to organize my addresses. I understand technology is here to stay and always changing. Some generations value the traditional paper bound address book whereas my daughter's generation is comfortable with a digital version.
While storing addresses in a cellular phone or the cloud may be quick or efficient, I find it risky.
How often do you see "My phone died and I had to get a new one, lost my contacts, if you want me to get a hold of you, send me your information again."? If you store everyone's phone number, address, and email in a hand written version - it will take an act of God to destroy it.
Just saying, a power outage doesn't erase your handwriting.
If you use a traditional address book,
