Got a promotion? Don’t toss those old business cards. Instead, stack outdated cards in a small bowl or holder next to the phone, and use the backside as scrap paper.

Business cards’ sturdy stock and petite size make them perfect for jotting down phone numbers and quick messages.

    I wrote one meal menu on each card, punched hole in the corner and put them on a key chain. Now when I am at a loss for something to cook, I simply flip through ideas in my menu deck.

    For those who still embrace low-tech ideas. Here’s a way to remember important dates like say family birthdays. Make a card for each family member by writing their name and birth date on the backs of old business cards & store them in a business card holder in chronological order. The most current birthday (or anniversary) should be showing as a reminder. When the date passes, move the card to the back of the pile revealing the next important date.
