After years of scribbling URLs, special offer codes, and phone numbers on scraps of paper and backs of envelopes, then forgetting where I put them, I graduated to creating a draft in Gmail, which at least made a centralized dumping area. Unfortunately I now have almost 400 drafts.
I have capitulated and dragged myself into the 21st century by purchasing ACT! 2009 contact manager software, and the No Stress Tech Guide To ACT! 2009. I hope the “no stress” claim is not just hype. (New software always freaks me out to a greater degree than most “new” anything else. A very patient techie hubby is a must.) I am determined to free myself from the tyranny of disorganization. Really.
