Use a recipe box for all of those snail mail addresses you still use. The cards are large enough to put birthdays of all the family members and other special dates or notes on. There is plenty of room for the birth of new babies.
When a couple has a baby, give that baby his/her own card so you can write any special notes, or thoughts you might want to remind them of later. Maybe a gift idea you don't want to forget.
We all know how computers can crash so it is a good idea to have those email and cellphone addresses and numbers written down. Having them all in one place sure makes it faster to find what you need. Keep it right beside the computer and update it right along with the computer and you will never be without the information you need.

I have had this recipe box for several years and this is the third makeover. I like the box, but I change the color and design according to how my kitchen decoration theme is at the current time. It has gone from wood, to painted blue and pink hearts, to white textured, to pale green with an herbal theme!
